Hi there! So much for my commitment to consistency in posting! February was a busy month, and unfortunately the blog sometimes fell to the wayside. I’m taking a moment to have a cup of tea with you, (coffee if you’d like!) and catch you up on things! Join in on the fun by linking up with the monthly Coffee Date, hosted by Coco and Deborah!
If we were having tea, I’d share with you that I attended a few fun blog events this month! At the beginning of February I met up with the Windy City Bloggers at Native Foods Cafe on Milwaukee Avenue to sample their new menu. I recapped the meal here on my blog.
The second blogger event was actually just last night, at an opening party for a new workout facility called Fit36. Fit36’s concept is that you can get a full workout in just 36 minutes! Right now they are offering free classes to the public until their membership system officially launches later in March. I’m excited because I also won a free month membership so I am kind of set until late April.
JuiceRx also sponsored the event and kept us well-hydrated and fed after our workout!
If we were having tea, I’d also tell you that I escaped the one cold weekend last month to visit family in Florida! It was a great trip, and I’m so glad I got to visit with my grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins!
If we were having tea, I’d also tell you about how my endeavors in triathlon coaching are getting busy! I’m coaching at Wellfit and have been leading a Monday evening computrainer class. I’ll be helping to coach the Chicago Triathlon training program come April, and have also taken on to coach the Chicago Triathlon Club‘s Newbie Program.
We did coach headshots at Wellfit a few weeks ago!
If we were having tea, I’d share with you that I’m doing a nutritional cleanse and LOVING it! I’ve had a ton more energy, and have been working on my weight loss goals too. I love how this system is not too restrictive, so I’m able to weave in a cheat meal here and there without feeling like I’m derailing my efforts.
If we were having tea, I’d ask you about how your training and healthy living efforts are going. I love hearing about what you’re training for, what questions or challenges you’re having, and seeing if we can brainstorm ways to help get you out of those. I love also hearing and celebrating with you those big wins! If you ask me about my training, I’d say it’s going decently. I ran a lot in the beginning of the month, and completed an FTP cycling test and a run test this month as well. I improved in both tests, which is good, but have lost a little focus mentally on training. I’m hoping to get that back soon! Gotta reconnect with the reason why we do this!
Anyway, I hope you’re doing well! What’s new with you?!
