Fall is my favorite time of the year:) I love all the colors and foods fall brings! You would never know it's fall by the temps we are going to have this week:) One last round of summer??

I found three interesting workout plans in my latest Muscle and Fitness For Hers one for each style of figure competition. I have no desire to enter this type of competition. I think the eating plan would be way too strict, but I love all the workouts that were published so I am going to give them a go:) Time for a change anyway as I was getting bored with my routine. With three plans, it sounds like I may be set for awhile:) I always tell people I am working with to give any plan 4-6 weeks. Looks like I have a a good 6 months planned:)

Blogging on Spark was a great way for me to hold myself accountable. I would frequently write about the way I was eating more just to take note of how I was feeling. Now I like posting tips that I am learning along the way with my training to help you guys out:) So each month, I'll post tips that I have learned or an update:) Teaching full time and working three part time jobs keep me plenty busy and I often feel out of the loop with my Spark friends.

So for September:
*TRX level 2 certification
*New fitness plan:) Today was fav!!! Lots of squats...also my favorite:)
*Tracking my mileage. 2500 is so close!!!
*Tracking calories. The school year is always stressful. Tracking helps me keep things in perspective:) I always eat within my calorie range, but am going to try focusing on macros this month. I have tried this in the past and failed miserably. Hoping this time around things will be different. The past three days have been ok. Been trying to up the carbs and lower the fat. Since I eat Paleo there are some contradictions with the meal plan that goes with the workout I am following, but I am going to go with the flow and live happy.
*Pizza night Friday!!! The background is one of my favs:) Sweet potato crust with all the veggies I can find:)
*Looking for a venus for a winter boot camp for all the teachers:) The summer's was such a hit, I want to do another!! Samples have already starting arriving!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Dinner tonight with friends, that's always fun!
What are you up to for September?

2305.6/2500 miles for the year!

    I love the changes on your Sparkpage! Your pizza looks so Yummi!!!
    I love the Fall too - it is the perfect season for running and hiking. The other nice thing about this time of year is eating fresh from the garden... I am looking forward the squash and pumpkin too.
    Back to school is definitely a change in tempo and exercise is my way to keep my stress level under control. I will keep posting my blogs too - so true about accountability.

    Thanks for sharing your tips - it is inspiring. I really like reading your posts.

    Have a great end of Summer - a few more days...

    Sounds like a great plan....I love fall too!

    For September I'm taking it up a notch on kettlebells. Perfecting "High Pulls" with a 53 lber, snatches with a 32 lber, and maybe, just maybe, a Turkish get up with a 72 lber! (Oh yeah, and still some quality time with my friend the barbell doing squats, benches, overhead presses, and deadlifts!!)

    Summer is not over until September 22 or the actual start of autumn. Just a note, so Keep on keeping on! emoticon
