First of all I want to apologize for my lack of posting lately. This past week I was not feeling myself. I had a headache and blurred vision for seven days straight. The last thing I wanted to do was stare at a computer screen. I went to see an optometrist and my primary care doctor and neither one had an answer for me. The optometrist told me my eyes are perfectly fine and my primary care doctor told me he had no idea what was wrong with me. They ran some tests but everything came back normal. I was so happy to wake up this morning and feel normal again.
Quick story. When I was at the doctor's office on Monday, the medical assistant was going through my list of previous medications to find out if I was still on them. When she came to all of my inhalers, I happily told her that I had given up dairy and I was no longer in need of inhalers. She was shocked. She said, "I could never give up cheese!" I have heard this from so many people. Believe me, I love cheese! But if giving up cheese prevents me from having to use multiple inhalers daily then I will gladly give up cheese. I really hope anyone reading this who is suffering from asthma will try giving up dairy to see if it helps at all.
Moving on. The reason for my post today is so that I can announce that I am officially a personal trainer! I was hired on at the gym where I work out after being referred by my trainer. I am so grateful to him. I will be training two days a week so it will only be part time. I plan on keeping my full time job as well. It will be a lot on my plate but I am really excited to start this new journey!
Health, fitness and nutrition are my passions. I believe we should live out our passions. I am looking forward to helping others begin or continue their journeys and achieve their goals. And at the same time I plan on working toward my goals. I don't even know if I will ever consider being a personal trainer a job.
