I had a dream the other night that I lived in a van and when I woke up I felt sad. Not like, "oh gosh how sad I lived in a van, that's terrible" but "damn, I wish I had the kind of life where I could live in a van". Now I'm not certain that I would like van life, my boyfriend is convinced that I would in fact hate it, but I like the idea of it. Of being free to move about how I wish, that I presumably have a location-independent source of income, that I could wake up in a beautiful setting every day and fall asleep with the smell of campfire in my nostrils and the stars overhead. Alas, that isn't currently the case and I'm trying to be okay with it. Living for the weekend isn't so much living as surviving, but I know that the path I'm walking will open up eventually, even if I can't see the forest for the trees right now. Okay, enough with the metaphors. Jeez.
In other news, I started my nutrition coaching course! In 18 short (HAH) weeks I'll have my certification and will open up some spots for clients, which I am super duper excited about. If you're looking for someone to help you get your nutrition and eating habits back on track, I'm your girl for sure. In the meantime I'll be posting nuggets of information and guides and articles and other fun stuff occasionally on here as I come across it so keep an eye out for that. I'm also starting a C25K program (hopefully) this week. I've always wanted to be a runner but every time I try I go too hard in the beginning and my knees KILL ME for DAYS. My hope is by doing this running for beginners type program (C25K stands for Couch to 5K hahaha) I'll condition my knees and other body parts to get used to the motion. Plus it should help for backpacking trips in the future too. Are there any runners out there? Any tips for getting started?
