As you are reading this I am galavanting in the Midwest for the first time! Fitbloggin has taken me east, west, south, west again and now midwest. I am excited to attend and present on how to be a consistent blogger. Full recap to come!
I was completely overwhelmed with the response to my post on Monday. I had been struggling with working at my former employer for a little while and I really couldn’t say much here until I had officially cut ties.
Things have been a lot better since. I’ve gotten a bunch of opportunities, I’ve landed my first official clients for BAM Digital and finally–I’m able to sleep again. I didn’t realize how bad my sleep life was until I quit. No more waking up at 2 am and not being able to fall back asleep. I now move at my own time, I work really hard all day but it’s ok because I love it.
I’m attending small business classes and learning that there is a TON that I have to learn about running my own business but I am the biggest sponge waiting eagerly to soak up all the knowledge.
It’s literally a new me.
One thing this life has allowed me is more gym time! So check out my fitness week, because it’s more than I’ve done in months!!
Marathon Training Week 5
Since my blink fitness is legit just a 5 minute walk from my house, it’s easy to get my workout on as soon as the kids are gone. I workout at about 7:15am everyday and I’m back with enough time to shower, eat and begin my workday.
Monday: 4 miles. My legs were fresh from a lack of a long run on Saturday so it was a good run.
Tuesday: Weights day!! I switched it up this time though. 20 minutes on the elliptical for a warm up. Then I did 100 kettlebell swings, pull-ups of the TRX and heavy ropes (so hard!). Let’s just say I was wiped!!
