Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine was pretty uneventful — nothing terrible and nothing exceptional. Just a regular week. Neil was gone for most of it on a work trip, so it was just me and Donut and Netflix for most of the days. This weekend will likely be more of the same, just hanging out and maybe some last minute explorations of the city. Next weekend we will be in NYC and the following weekend I’ll be going to Canada for the first time (!!), so I might just want to take it easy. Without further ado, here… View Post

It took me awhile to figure out what was going on with me. I was excited to be embarking on new career adventures — working for myself — and riding high from taking my writing trip at the end of last month.

Cheers to the end of the week and a happy Friday the 13th! 🙂 This week has been short for me; I spent Sunday — Tuesday in Virginia visiting some family, so I came back to only a three day work week. I’m still trying to figure out what day it is, but thankfully these posts help keep me on track. No big plans for the weekend, so it’s likely just enjoying the cooler weather and taking Donut somewhere that she can be free amidst her other dog friends. Very exciting stuff around here. Here are some of the things… View Post

It’s been almost two and a half years since I became a personal trainer and in that time, I’ve gotten many questions about it. I wanted to address some of them here and if there are any that I’ve missed, please leave them in the comments and I can write another post! 1. How do you get clients? This is one of the questions I get the most. Building up a client base can take awhile if you’re an independent trainer, which is one of the reasons why many people start out training in larger gyms. It took me about… View Post
