Today I am driving straight to San Antonio to see my parents for the night! WAHOO!!! and then back to ATX Saturday morning to train a few clients, work on some materials for a presentation, and kayaking and/or stand up paddle boarding with my buddy David! 🙂
I want to update ya’ll on my most recent news with marathon training and other workouts:
*I cannot afford the trip to San Diego in June, nor can I run longer than 15 miles (I found out recently) without my compartment syndrome really acting up. SO….the verdict? I am no longer doing the San Diego Rock N’ Roll Marathon :-(. I was super bummed, and still am because I was truly looking forward to running this race with my friend Laura, but hopefully one day I’ll be able to run longer than 15 miles without my leg going numb!
*I have also been working with a trainer here at 24-hour fitness who has been practicing Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu for the past 12 years and teaches it as well. He is a BALLA! I have actually thought about looking into possibly doing MMA or something like that. I am really enjoying it ya’ll….never thought of myself as a fighter in the sense of actually punching people etc. but its FUN! I haven’t actually hit a person, just pads but I have found out recently that I’m pretty good at this stuff! 🙂
Here is what Jiu Jitsu looks like: Its all floor work, no punching, kicking, biting etc.
Here is what Muay Thai looks like: Its standing with footwork, kicking, punching, etc.
So, I thought that since I got wireless at home I would be more inclined to blog on a more consistent basis but right now my life is so hectic I barely find time to even sleep! (As of right now, I’m running on about 2 hours of sleep). However, even thought I had to wake up early to go train a client this morning and then head to the non-profit to put a few finishing touches on these events coming up May 1 and 4, I was still happy when I woke up.
I love what I do. I don’t know why I didn’t start personal training sooner. Yeah, of course there are times when I get frustrated with lack of motivation in clients etc. but at the end of the day I am driven by the pure thought of making a difference in anothers life.
I am also driven by the Lord. He has blessed with me so much and I want nothing but to spend my time here on Earth paying it forward. Yes, I do have my times when I slip up, and sometimes I don’t make the best judgements but at the end of the day I’m truly grateful for the challenges, hardships, and victories in my life.
I am also in LOVE with the simple things in life….like watching videos of cats trying to figure out a treadmill:
or my amazing doggie arnie 🙂
For a wonderful family and great friends who always support me in all my endeavors 🙂
It really makes me happy to know that everyday I can wake up truly enjoying my life, my job, and just being me because I am living my life through Him, and hopefully touching peoples lives through kindness, compassion, joy, sorrow, and any other kind of emotion out there 🙂
I hope everyone has a very blessed Easter!
