...Because Fit Feels Better.

So I have this serious passion for working out. As the weather gets nicer I get a major itch for taking the day off and enjoying some fresh outside air... Well as fresh as air gets in Las Vegas that is! Living in Vegas it gets SO hard to workout in the summer when it's nearly 110 degrees by 8 a.m. and then during the winter it's already dark outside by 4pm with the temperature around 30 degrees. No bueno. Since that makes up the majority of the year, you can understand why I sit at my desk during those shortened spring and fall seasons gazing out of the window daydreaming about my running shoes and where I would unleash my passion. I've tried to convince my husband that I would be a GREAT stay-at-home wifey... that he'd ALWAYS have clean laundry, dinner every night, and a super fit lady because I'd practically be working out all the time... he never falls for it.

So now I'm feeling like I should pursue a career path. Like a REAL career.
Combined with my passion for working out... I love nutrition.
I've really considered going back to get my masters degree in nutrition to be some sort of Registered Dietitian or something. I really have no idea what I would do with it at this point but it could be a start to something great, right? I mean, if I'm going to be working (before we go down the kid route) anyways why not do something that I'm passionate about??

Anyways... just some thoughts.

Here's a few articles I'm inspired by:



A good "power climbing" workout for my fellow cyclists

This is an absolute life-savor  for sore muscles

Here's a great local website for fellow triathletes looking for some extra training


And here's the latest in my kitchen...

I LOVE Fresh & Easy Marketplace.

I was there the other day and bought some
fresh red & yellow bell peppers (1 each), chicken breasts (comes in a pack of 2),

and this little marinade...



Combined them all together... & viola!


... And seriously it was absolutely flippin' delish & under $10. Cha-ching!
A must, must, must! Even Grant  loved it.

Thanks Fresh & Easy for keepin' it real.

Why not work at a fitness or recreation center? Our Fitness Coordinator here at UNLV used to teach 3 spin classes A DAY when she worked at just a regular fitness club! And, when things get slow around here or some of her group x instructors don't show up, she can take their classes or teach them. She absolutely loves it, and she reminds me a lot of you, actually! Just something to think about!
