Lately, I have had a list of firsts that I’ve wanted to share with you all, and instead of putting them randomly in a list of different posts, I thought I’d share them all in one neat little package.
In the last week, I have had my first…
–REAL workshop that I taught with Nick on the topic of goal setting (real, meaning it wasn’t me telling my story, it was teaching others about a topic)! Super fun, too! The part I enjoyed about the process the most, besides that I got to do it with my best buddy, was that I wasn’t nervous one tiny little bit. I don’t know if you all remember me talking about how nervous I was when I taught “my story”…if not, let me refresh you. I was so nervous that I almost blacked out right before I went up, and once I was up there, I was sweating a consistent stream of bullets…so distracting to those in the front row :-p Anyway, Saturday’s workout was nothing like that. I was excited to go teach with Nick, and I truly felt I held my own up there :-p
–Paycheck from Innate Fitness!!!! This meant SO much to me. While I DO get paid at SBFC, I get direct deposit, aka, money transfer to my account…so getting a tangible paper check with my name on it for COACHING made my night 🙂 I have yet to cash it, however :-p
–Equal coaching environment. Now, I’m not sure how to word that any better, so I’ll just have to explain it. Every Thursday night I coach with Andrew, as I have been saying. He is so awesome to work with; he definitely treats me like an equal in there, which is awesome considering I’m officially NOT an equal quite yet. While he most definitely treats me like an equal, I think there is still an understanding that I am HELPING and he is TEACHING… On Saturday we had the big group workout, and four of the coaches between SBFC and IBBC were teaching four different stations (squats, sprints, pushups and situps), and because Casey couldn’t be there, I decided to jump in and offer to teach the sit-up. It was a growing moment for me to be so quick to offer to teach, I used to be terrified of things like that. The result: I taught, I lived and I had SO much fun doing it!
–115 FULL CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The last time I tried for my max full clean, I got 95#. Yesterday, I killed the 95, and PR’d with 105 and THEN 115!! Two PR’s in a day is ALWAYS a good day!
So now that I have you all fully caught up, I thought I’d fill you in on Nick and I’s newest sweet, sweet pillow talk low. ..Do you remember the integumentary chatter?? Well, the other night we sweetly whispered the day good-bye to the talk of…
…HDL, LDL and VLDL’s… oh yes, you are correct in questioning whether I’m talking about fat… in bed (and I don’t’ mean IN bed…just in bed…)…
Oh yes. New low.
So now I ask you this…I’d like to hear from all of YOU! Please leave a comment with a first you had this week, or the craziest thing you’ve talked about in bed 🙂
3, 2, 1, GO!
Oh, and have a beautiful day!
