It’s been a little quiet around the blog in the past week so I wanted to pop in and say hello! What I’ve been up to:
I finally started that month of yoga from a Groupon that I’d previously purchased so I’ve been trying to get in some 90-minute yoga sessions, which I really love to do but am finding it to be tough on my schedule. The class if offered usually late morning (9:30 to 11:00) so I’ll enjoy it while it lasts but I have a feeling when the month is over I’ll be back to my usual routine of working out in my home gym first thing in the morning so that I can have it behind me and move on with the rest of my day. I don’t enjoy working beforehand then stopping and then trying to start up again – it messes with my momentum! Especially when I feel so relaxed and zen when class is over! I have to admit though – I forgot how amazing yoga in an actual heated yoga studio is. I sweat buckets in that 100 degree room and I feel very ‘cleansed’ of mind and body afterward.
I am revamping the coaching program that I’ve been offering through phone/online. Whenever I’ve had time to be in front of my computer, that’s what I’ve been devoting my time to. To do it all the way I’d prefer will take a lot of time and possibly mean that a big part of the FitFeat archives would come down off the web. Can’t say for sure, but if there is anything that you really want to keep (articles or recipes) you might want to print it to have on hand just in case.
On the home front, we started our next big ‘home improvement’ project on our staircase, ripping up all of the carpet (which is old and gross). Hopefully when it’s done we’ll have painted hard surface treads, plus painted spindles and handrails but there is a LOT of work that needs to be done to get them ready for paint. The carpet was hiding a whole lot of ‘messy’ from when the house was built. This could easily be a project that stretches into multiple months but we think it will be worth it when it’s done. We’ve done two projects now that require ripping up carpet and it is shocking how much dirt is UNDERNEATH the padding. Now I understand those home buyers I used to work with who said they wanted no carpet in their homes at all. I am starting to be of that mind as well. No wonder our house is a pain to keep dusted!
And of course, I’ve been personal cheffing, nutrition coaching, recipe testing and personal training.
How about you? Anything fun and interesting on your agenda lately?
