If we were having coffee…. I would want to know if fall temps have come your way. Even if it is slightly cooler here, and I have worn long sleeves a couple times, for the most part we have been having an extended summer. I wore a white skirt and sandals to work this week.
Over coffee, we would probably chat about carb cycling. Ever heard of it ? I hadn’t as of August. After reading up on it, I signed up for a 6 week on line program with Amanda Tress (sorry WordPress link to her site is not working). The quantity and kinds of carbs are matched with certain kinds of exercise / fitness. I finished a week ago, and while I don’t weigh myself, I did take my measurements. I lost 8 inches (legs , arms, breast, waist & hips) and all my pants / skirts are way too big. I feel amazing and absolutely loved the 6 weeks. I learned a ton, added variety to my fitness routine, and met a great group of people through a closed Facebook group. Expectations are high and Amanda and the group hold you accountable. I don’t dare post before and after photos on the internet but I was darn happy with the results and by what I learned. I have signed up for another 6 weeks, starting October 10th.
I did a ton of squatting… much more than I usually did. Lots of sprinting and full body workouts too.
If we were having coffee, we would probably talk about back to school. I now have a senior and a sophomore and the school year is already in full swing. Both are doing great and have adjusted to the routine, after 2 months off.
Over coffee, I would probably tell you I have been in a major funk since I got back from vacation mid August. I am happy to have had the back to school activities and my 6 week program to keep me focused. I have not been interested much in running races, my blogging has taken a back seat, my husband has been working very long hours, I have a friend who is quite ill… but maybe it is the shorter days ? Maybe I have realized my eldest might be leaving home in a year ? Maybe it is some kind of mid life crisis ? I don’t know. But I’ll stop there.
We loved our summer vacation so much, that coming back to “life” has been hard ! I know. First world problems.
How was your month of September ? What would you like to chat about over coffee ?
