So, I have contemplated starting a blog for a while now and I guess today seemed like a good day to do it. I am sitting on my deck enjoying this gorgeous day, doing some work and thinking about what I want to do when I grow up 🙂 Those of you who know me, know that I am passionate about health and fitness. I am a personal trainer part-time and love sharing with people ways to incorporate fitness programs into their busy lives.
Almost more than exercise, I love talking about food. Good for you food. Healthy food. New and exciting recipes. As well as what not to eat.
Over the past few years, I have educated myself on good food choices and the problems with our food supply in this country. I am currently studying to get my AFPA Nutritional Consultant Certification, in hopes to find some career path that matches up with what I love to do. As I am sitting here today considering future options, my phone rang and a good friend on the other end says, “I have a major problem!” I thought to myself, what in the world could be wrong?!? Then she says, “How do I get rid of this muffin top?” Laughing and relieved that nothing was wrong, we started talking about what she was eating. This very dear friend of mine is a committed exerciser, so I am fairly sure the problem is not that she is a couch potato! We continued to discuss her current eating habits and ideas for some new snacks and meals.
After a great conversation, I think…that was not just coincidence. It sounds so cliché, but things in life happen for a reason….maybe that phone call was a glimpse into my future career 🙂
