I’m working really hard to put on the brakes!
It finally got cold here–21 degrees when I got up this morning 😦 I think one of my ultimate life goals is going to be moving somewhere warmer–but not too warm 🙂
As evidenced by the fact that I have once again not blogged for a month, things have been kind of crazy. However, it is slowly getting better. I’m looking forward to the time I am going to spend with my family over the holidays. I also have two really fun trips planned with my girlfriend, both to see bands that we love. We also have some plans to rearrange the apartment which I think will be a nice reset for creativity in the things we are both doing.
A big change, and something I am super excited about is that I went back to school. It was a bit of a scary change (I have spent far too much time in school already and I currently work at one), but I already feel invigorated and ready to charge forward with all of the ideas I have. I am enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am only 3 weeks into classes and it has already made a big difference in my life. In about 6 months I will be able to start working with clients, helping them transform their lives. So, if you or anyone you know is interested in a Health Coach, let me know!
One of my class assignments this week is to have a positive attitude. Wish me luck, especially today. I am on my way to the dentist, eek!
One photo for today. Here a picture of my breakfast buddy who likes to hang out while I have coffee.
I’m still on the mend from the nasty plague from which I have been suffering, and I feel a little better every day. The highlights this weekend were:
Sunday brunch of chicken thighs, bacon, sweet potatoes, and spinach. Eaten in bed with coffee from the french press.
Lots of kitty cuddles. Sunday was an all-pajamas-in-bed day, which made the cats (and us) very happy.
And, snow! What the heck, man? It was 50 degrees on Saturday!
The internet found the perfect workout for me! I’m gonna be ripped.
Today was my visit to the GI doctor. It was a short visit, but since I have effectively corrected my digestive issues with my diet, there wasn’t anything to troubleshoot. He did order a genetic test to see if I have celiac disease. However, if that comes back negative, then my diagnosis is gluten sensitivity. The treatment in both cases is to continue with a gluten-free diet, and, in my case, grain free until I decide to reintroduce some as an experiment. I’m really curious to see how the test results come out.
