Things have been busy for 3 reasons....
First reason is....
I have schoolwork to do!
As many of you know, I am a Physical Therapist at an acute rehabilitation hospital. I also love working with students and teaching physical therapy. I serve as adjunct faculty at my alma matter and take usually 2 students a year to do their full time clinical internships, as well as organizing an integrated clinical for first year PT students.
I love teaching.
As a bonus for taking students from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions, I get credit vouchers. I have decided to use those vouchers to work toward an advanced certificate in teaching! So I have been spending many nights reading, researching, and writing for school.
I am on a training hiatus.
I have no races currently scheduled (although there are 70.3 thoughts in my head). I have decided to take 3 months off from formal race training (which I haven't done in over 3 years), to work on really losing the weight I need to. I have tried so many times, but race training tends to leave me exhausted and stressed, and hungry! So for 3 months, I have a new best friend.
Remember when I was back/forth between Jillian and P90X?
Can we say love it?
I have lost almost 10 pounds in 2 weeks.
I feel lighter, thinner, more energized, and healthy.
The diet is the key part, and I love only doing 30 minute workouts.
My ultimate goal will be adding in a few running days, but that is on hold until my big toe heals from the nasty catamaran injury on vacation.
Not running or training, makes me feel like I can't make posts, but I will just have to make them more weight loss & healthy living centered.
Kevin & I are getting Married!
We have set our date for August 24, 2013!
I have been busy putting things together, getting organized, and planning planning planning. This is the reason I won't be able to have a repeat at Pumpkinman 70.3, but am considering the Patriot Half Iron in June 2013.
So now you know what has been keeping me busy on my small hiatus from blogging. Oh that, and an amazing vacation. I'll recap that in another post.
What keeps you busy from blogging?
Would you ever go back to school?
Do you care about reading my weight loss adventures or race training only?
