What I've been up to. . .

It's been a really long time since I last posted, so I wanted to give y'all an update.  I have realized that I don't have the time right now that I envision one day devoting to this blog!  My main focus is keeping up with our family blog, which is really important to me, and I try hard to do that a few times a week.  I am, however, happy that I have at least created this blog, as it has allowed me to picture what I want to do with the fitness aspect of my life some day.  When I have the time and energy to do so, I would love to start teaching stroller fitness again, and one day I hope to have my own business.  After years of coaching, and then finally training other women and teaching stroller fitness, I realized how passionate I truly am about fitness, exercise, and helping other women achieve their goals.  I currently don't have the extra time to devote to this, but I would love to hope that one day I will. Many of the women I trained and taught, still keep in touch with me, and are always asking me when I am going to teach again.  I'm still bummed that the stroller fitness program shut down, because it was the perfect part-time job for me.  These women that still keep in touch have motivated me to keep doing what I love to do, though on a personal basis.  I love sharing fitness tips with them, and it's been great to keep in contact through social media.
I wasn't able to run the half marathon due to exclusively breastfeeding Cora, and not being able to be away from her.  It was just too soon, and I'm perfectly okay with that.  There will always be another race to sign up for!  I've currently been running at least 4 days a week with the double stroller, and doing my own stroller fitness at home and at the gym with my bands.  I also go to Zumba once a week.  Thanks to all the women who send me messages on Facebook and through email to share ideas and motivate one another.  It's awesome and inspiring!  I hope everyone is having a fun, healthy summer!
