Good Morning! I only have a minute to chat before I have to get out the door and onto an eventful morning assisting HOOPER, our crazy Detriot Pistons mascot at an appearance.
Those of you who have been reading for a while might remember my adventures last summer with ’em. During the off season, I help out with events and today is the first day back for me this summer. And so it begins.
You know what else started this week? Studying.
Before our trip down to Florida, I shared some news that I would be tackling and studying to get my CPT through NASM. I didn’t worry about it while I was on vacation, but now that we are back I dove right into it last night.
I have to admit that it was a little overwhelming at first. I haven’t been in any type of “study” mode since college, and that was at least seven years ago. Yeesh.
When I was done with my work for the day yesterday, I took my book to our dining room table and cracked it open. It only took about five minutes before I remembered I can’t concentrate on studying anything unless my surroundings are clean and spotless. Now I remember why my room was always clean in college! I’m kind of a weirdo.
Anyways, several hours later, the house looked great and I got a few good hours of studying in. I finally successfully logged into the online study guide and watched all of the first chapter videos. I already started an impressive stack of note cards and realize this is just the beginning of a long, committing process.
I’m actually really excited about reading the material and have already enjoyed everything I’ve learned about!
I tried something completely different this morning for breakfast.
I’ve mentioned this before, but for those of you who are wondering, I choose to incorporate gluten free products into our pantry every once in a while because it seems to sit better with my stomach. I don’t need to eat gluten free, but I like to see what’s out there and frequently turn to GF options if they are available.
I really, really liked this bread! Even though it’s kept in the freezer, it tastes fresh when you toast it and doesn’t taste gluten free at all to me. I loved the texture. The only downfall would be the more expensive price tag at $5.50+ a loaf.
I hate to cut this short but I need to get going. I plan to check back in later today with this month’s Stitch Fix fun. Have a great start to your Tuesday!
