Winter Creates My Excuses

Happy Friday Readers.

I hate winter. I hate snow. I hate the cold. I am completely aware that I live in Ohio and I should be accustomed to our winter weather and prepared by the time October comes around BUT.. I am never prepared & by this time I evolve into a grinch because the cold has frozen my heart.

I would usually be waking up preparing for my day — and starting it early at the gym today but I skipped my workout & used the excuse we received more snow overnight so the roads are probably not yet salted and I don’t want to risk sliding and what not. It also doesn’t help that my gym is a 20 minute drive away from where I reside, however, I chose this gym based on recommendations and love the hole in the wall facility and don’t want to find any place closer because I am comfortable at this gym & while they have two locations — the other is not any closer. It would be easy for some to pack up and move someplace warmer but in this day and time, finances are not always stacked just right for everyone to make that decision and I am locked into a lease — so for now, I will suck it up when winter comes around & continue to make excuses for choosing to skip workout days… I am human, remember?

Days like this, I just want to stay indoors and cuddle up to a show and/or movie and snack on something like chips and queso! hah. Today, I have emails to reply to, mail to read, perhaps I might start on my taxes today, I might do some light cleaning, invest in “self” love time — which I don’t have time for during the week because of my work schedule and I am in bed very early (it consist of meditation, and reading a book) on the weekends and sometimes it also includes some exploring of the city and community, trying a new restaurant, visiting a park, etc. Basically anything that makes me happy! but starts with the mediation and reading of a book.

Fitness is the name of the game, but not every blog post will be about something fit & healthy, maybe it will change from time to time to something about life in general, me, travel, etc. whatever comes to mind, the main focus being about fitness & health (mental and physical) but with healthy doses of other topics because my life isn’t just about being a personal trainer and competitive powerlifter — I do have other hobbies & I have thoughts, and I like to ramble about random things from time to time (more than you know) so bare with me, if you came here for a fitness tip today — I didn’t have one prepared & I didn’t have one I was in the mood to discuss — so I decided to start my day with a blog post about my feels on winter seasons and the cold. Don’t hold it against me, I have a ton of topics listed but sometimes I just want to talk about “stuff” & I think that is okay. My only goal for this blog is to share information, create a place to talk about fitness/health, make a safe space to laugh and share your thoughts, meet awesome readers and writers, and allow my blog to grow at its fullest potential — however that happens, doesn’t matter. My personal goal is to be consistent about writing on Friday & Saturdays (sometimes Sundays) — so far I am doing it … last weekend I was out of town for a birthday for my sibling. #Visitingfamily

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 8+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
