“The only person you should compete with is the reflection in the mirror.”
Cliché? Maybe. But the truth is undeniable. Stop concerning yourself with what other people are doing and saying. Do what makes you happy and makes you feel your best. Everything else will fall into place. Life is just too damn short to do anything else.
✌️ Don’t worry. Be happy ✌️
Well, folks. It looks like I took quite a hiatus! Unintentional, to say the least. But, well, sometime life happens and things get lost along the way. Do I even have followers anymore? It’s me, guys. Are you out there?? Is it me you’re looking for? Hah ok, ok, enough with the jokes.
A lot of things have happened since I last wrote. I quit my desk job in December to finally put my nose to the grindstone and finish my Sports Nutrition Certification. Yay!!
Becoming certified is something I’ve been trying to achieve since I began this blog last year. Having a full time job just wasn’t allowing me to pursue it. So, I took a leap of faith and here we are! I’ve completed my course and am just waiting to attend my CPR course and brush up on my knowledge. Being a Certified Personal Trainer AND Sports Nutrition Specialist will allow me to combine my passion for fitness with my love of cooking. I have so many ideas and things in the works! Not too much longer. So, time to buckle down these next couple weeks and go for the gold! dun dun dun dunnn!! I have faith, though. I have to, right? (I AM a pretty horrible test taker; for the record.) But if I don’t believe in myself, who will? Too cliché??
I’ve still been cooking up a storm, training and have even changed my diet. Remember I was carb cycling before? Well, stay tuned because what I have to say about the long term effects of caloric deprivation might hit home for a few of you struggling with weight loss. Needless to say, I’ve slowly worked my way up to eating almost double what I was before, way more carbs and am stronger than ever! I’m gaining the muscle I was striving for and have found that elusive balance so many of us are in search of.
Life has been good to me; as I hope it has for you, too, my friends. 2014 is looking to be a fantastic year, with every opportunity I could imagine and I look forward to sharing my journey and upcoming projects with all of you!
Always remember to Eat, Lift, Laugh, and most importantly, LOVE!
