I hope you all are doing well!
I miss the personals and hearing what you all have been up to. As for me checking in, there's not a bunch of change there - especially not my pushups! LOL!
Unfortunately I've had to budget my time differently and I want to let you know why I've been MIA. Since I got back from my trip (which was fantastic, by the way) I've been taking a Dave Ramsey class, Financial Peace University, that's been offered at my church. It's an AMAZING class, by the way. My first choice class was a Marriage class but we ended up taking the Financial class instead and I am SO glad. Between that 2-hour class plus travel time, work and travel time, teaching Pilates, and now I'm spending more time in the kitchen than EVER.... going mostly vegetarian has been quite demanding but worth it and I'm feeling great; doing a lot of research on products and how to make complete proteins and get enough protein without over-saturating my carb intake has been a bit challenging; othe local farmers' markets open I will feel better about buying local meat and chicken. In the meantime I'm making oat milk, almond milk, lots of hummus, fruit/nut bars, quinoa. I'm still consuming dairy and eggs but have been more particular about the labeling to make sure the animals have been treated humanely. I've had to supplement complete proteins with plant-based blend protein powders in addition to my whey isolate. Also, I committed to a Bible reading plan which takes a couple hours a night, and I'm taking a Continuing Education Course called Motivating People to Be Physically Active.
I'm in a FB Cathlete Check-in group if anyone is interested in joining that. Toni,
I thought I saw you on there once or twice but maybe I'm mistaken. Heartymax,
I see your FB posts so it's nice "catching up" with you that way. It's much easier for me to access FB than get in to the Forum here. Nancy,
if you're on FB it would be great to connect with you there as well.
So that's that for me.
How are you liking P90X3 - are you still doing that? How is the Pilates DVD? I don't remember what you said about that.
I hope Jasmine's cheerleading is going great; how is her coach?
What's new with you?
Anyone else still checking in?
Take care and I hope to check back soon. Big hugs, my fitness friends
