Health, Life

Coffee Date: Focus

Hard to believe it was just a week ago we were heading to the airport for a spur of the moment trip to Miami. This week has seemed painfully long. I’m in desperate need of a coffee date, want to join me?

If we were having coffee I would most certainly go for Iced Coffee. I’m totally loving my Keurig for their Brew Over Ice options. I normally love my Ice Coffee anyway, but I love it even more when its like 105 degrees outside. Seriously, so hot.

I would tell you how excited I am to have a few weeks off in between terms of school. I wish I was done with my psychology degree so I could focus on getting my Health Coach Certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I know this is something I really want to do. For so long I feel like school has just been something I’m doing just to say I’m doing it. When I started I just didn’t have any focus or vision. I would probably come close to spilling my coffee everywhere because when I get excited about something I talk with my hands, and being able to say I have finally found some focus when it comes to what I really want to do makes me SUPER excited. I would love to be a Certified Health Coach so that I can help other people find their own version of healthy. There is something about finding focus that is so energizing. And relieving.

Of course talking about my passion in this never ending journey to health would inevitably lead to me talking about my newest fitness love: CrossFit. You’d probably roll your eyes cause you’ve heard me talk about it too much already. As much as I am thankful for the relationship I’ve had with running, I think CrossFit is really taking the number one spot in my heart. I love the lifting! I feel like such a beast (most days). I also love how it is easy to see improvement in performance in just a short amount of time. And while my latest Fat Loss Challenge weigh in‘s haven’t been great as far as the scale goes, I’m seeing (and feeling) so much difference in my body. My clothes are fitting better, even some older ones that have had a home in the “someday I’ll wear these again” pile for a long time! I don’t plan on giving up running forever. I still plan on dominating the RunDisney goofy challenge someday.

Once you got tired of me talking about CrossFit, WODs, and how awesome that snatch was (oh the jokes…)…. I’d tell you that I finally picked up my hook again and started crocheting! Man, I really do miss being creative in my sewing and crocheting. I find crocheting relaxing, mostly because it forces me to just sit and be for awhile. Right now I’m working on a blanket for one of my best friends who just found out she is having a baby girl (Yay for Baby Lily!). Purple and Chevrons, this is gonna be awesome.

Talking about baby blankets makes me nostalgic for the time Little Dreamer was itty bitty. I would tell you how she is growing up too fast. I would tell you sometimes I forget to focus on the little things and enjoy them with her. It is so easy to get caught up in the work that has to get done and miss those little moments… So this week I plan on trying to be more attentive to that. We had a great start today.

I spent time making her bed a tent. She was so excited and thought I was the coolest ever.
I hope she still thinks that in 10 years.

Now that I’ve blabbered about what’s on my heart, tell me, what is on yours?
What would you share if we were having coffee?

ps- I’m linking up with Alissa at Rags To Stitches (I love her blog, and I love it even more since I won her big sponsor giveaway! Thanks Alissa!)
