Day 13

What is your dream job?

  • Goodness, the real question is what don’t I want to do as a dream job. My dream job is a multitude of things but come together because they surround my passion for fitness/health/mental health. For starters, I would love to have a job working with elite athletes and professional sports teams as their personal trainer or strength and conditioning coach. Besides that, I would enjoy being a professional fitness/health blogger/writer with a successful website, while also working with companies and contributing to their magazines and publications on the topics of fitness/health/mental health and LGBTQ as well. As a side hustle or part time job, I would want to be a motivational speaker that travels and talks about the importance of exercise, building self esteem/having self love and wellness. It would be a bonus to my dream job if I became an established author and had my own line of products as well. 
I have some big dreams when it comes to having my dream job, I want to do it all and then some, I want to do big things that make bigger impacts in people’s lives in a positive way. 
What is your dream job? are you currently working in the field of your dream job, if not, wh

Leaving for the weekend

Arnold Classic

Arnold Expo

So this weekend I will be gone, I am heading to Columbus Ohio for the Arnold Classic Expo and I am excited, this will be my third time going & I am hoping I get to meet some new people, make new friends, network and really just have a good time. I leaving very early in the morning and wanted to let my fellow bloggers know, to keep stay tuned to my FB page and Instagram because I plan on taking plenty of pictures and getting involved with some of the fun activities. If anyone else is going, I hope you have a good time, and if you want to meet up there, let me know, I love meeting new people, especially those of you who follow me on social media and my blog! I plan on posting pictures when I am back in town! Have a wonderful weekend. 

“whole 30” Diet & Exercise

This blog post sheds light on the “whole 30” diet itself and how well it works with ongoing exercise & new exercise regimens. I had a client who did this diet plan, along with this wife and expressed how it gave good results but over time they both were getting bored of the concept of eating the same foods daily, he expressed to me how strict the diet was, gave me some insight into the results it produced but wanted to know more information besides what he had researched because now they are both my clients at the gym & are looking to possibly start this diet once again along with starting their new workout agenda (will have been with me for a month now) and he wanted to know 1) my opinion 2) if it will help or hinder while he and his wife exercise 3) is it worth doing 4) is it something that can be adjusted so that they don’t run into the same issue of being bored of the same food 5) where to go from there once the 30 days is over . All of which were good questions and figured, I would post about it so that if others have the same thoughts, or questions, we could solve this together. 

Personally, I have never done this diet & I don’t recommend diets to my clients (out of my scope of practice) but to learn more about nutrition and teach good behaviors would be within my scope and help them prepare for the end of the road with a positive mindset and continued results. Hopefully the research I came up with you find helpful, feel free to also share it among your peers Whole 30 & Exercise

If any of you have more to add about this particular diet, please leave it in the comments — I love hearing personal experiences and stories (who knows, I might consider you writing a guest post about your experience with this diet)
