I realize it's been another month and half since I last blogged...my time on spark has not been frequent. It has been another busy summer and I can't believe that the boys will be in school this time next month! I have not done any running since my half, but am keeping myself busy teaching kickboxing twice a week. My group is tiny...I usually have 3 people, but sometimes just 1! It has been fun though as I'm designing my own routines and honing my skills as an instructor. It is truly a different world up front! I hate to admit that I was a typical gym rat student, thinking I could do as good a job as my cardio teachers. I've officially been set in my place LOL! I'm also subbing occasionally for the pilates and yoga classes which has also been equal parts nerve-wracking and fantastic. My group there is forgiving though and willing to try some of the different balancing poses that I've offered as a change of pace from the regular routine. We dropped our evening childcare which I'm sure didn't help any potential moms this summer, but hopefully as the weather turns and kids are back on a set schedule, I can get some more people into my classes. My study materials finally came in and I'm struggling through my exercise science book. I'm planning on taking my ACE certified group trainer exam using their three month time line, and the anatomy stuff is intimidating but I will get there. I'm still doing some summer fitness day camp with the boys at the gym, but not being in charge this year has been a weight off my shoulders. We've enjoyed the crafts and activities a lot more than last year :)
With all of the craziness, I have slipped quite a bit on my eating. I've put on some vacation weight and some of my jean shorts are getting a little too tight for my comfort. I'm using my phone tracker again though, and will slowly babystep back into proper habits. The food is here. I just need to choose my fruit and veggie options over the processed junk that my dad likes to send my boys. That's about it for me...hope this finds my SP friends happy, healthy and enjoying the rest of July!!
