Jumping on the 2016 recap bandwagon….
In summary, I met a lot of great people! Oiselle Volée and November Project people are some real inspiring people. I mean, who wakes up early to run, do pushups, and have fun? November Project! And who has an adult running camp- Oiselle Volée sure does!
Random things that I learned throughout 2016
Running- I learned I loved running the Chicago Lakefront path. There was lots of good running and races (see shadow photo?).
Yoga- It sure does help my running, but it also balances me overall. It helps me deal with daily stress, so I don’t stress.
Strength training/ bodyweight exercises- Don’t quite strength training to train for a marathon, you’ll possibly end up injured like me.
Nutrition – Yes, it’s important. Then again I guess I knew that, after 6 years of nutrition/ dietetics education. Although to be fair, I notice when I slack in eating healthy foods, my training and overall health suffer.
Work- Who knew I’d come up with Hangover Hacks? Other highlights include connecting with other RDs, writing blog posts, nutrition facts panel updates, lots of emails, much more.
Sleep- Gotta get that in. I like a solid 8-10 hours depending on my training.
Trucker Hats- Is it just me or do I look good in hats, especially Trucker hats? (see Bend photo below).
Travel- It’s a toss up. I love Bend and Boston. Great People and food makes for great places.
Here’s to 2017!! Currently setting some mindful goals over here. You should do the same! Hit me up, if you want some nutrition-related suggestions.
