The past month and a half has been a whirlwind, I feel like we were set on a ridiculously fast merry go round that was set to spin and we’re finally slowing down to a standstill.
The biggest impact came from my mom having to go to the hospital a couple of times. She had a couple of seizures break through. The current theory is that she is having seizures due to the scar tissue left over from her stroke. They have now adjusted her medications again and it seems that this time she is on the right dosage. There are no identified triggers for her seizures so nothing for us to do prevent them in terms of lifestyle or environment. I’m hopeful that this dosage will continue to be effective so she doesn’t have to deal with these anymore.
I am way behind on race recaps but they’re coming. My plan is to work backwards so I’ll start with the June races and go back to February. I have a lot of pictures to prepare for these posts and I’m excited to share them with you.
I haven’t been reading as much as I thought I would. We have been going to the library regularly this summer. Mr. Snugglebunny and I have both completed the library’s summer reading challenge. Mr. Bubbinsky and Mr. Snugglebunny have been enjoying checking out all sorts of graphic novels. They love superheroes so they’ve been catching up on all the stories. I am a HUGE Wonder Woman fan but I don’t enjoy the newer comics, there’s something about the way she’s drawn. They found a collection from the early 70s so I’ve been reading that one. There are 12 stories in the collection but I’ve been reading them one at a time. I seem to be enjoying it more that way than just powering through the whole thing at once.
I’ve also been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to establish my own business. I will be unveiling the website for “Simply Empowered Wellness” soon. My business will be focusing on wellness, taking our power back to be healthy and live life as fully as possible. Incorporating movement/exercise, nutrition and natural healing. Working towards healthy bodies and healthy minds.
I’m working on Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Coaching Certification. I took the course on July 12th and 13th and I’m working on the exam. I will complete the First Aid/CPR/AED training on August 1st and then I should receive my certification shortly after that. I’m excited to share my love of long distance running with others and helping them train towards their goal races. I’m going to be pursuing a personal trainer certification and also a sports nutrition certification. I am also adding other complimentary businesses that support the mission of my business.
The first complimentary business is with DoTerra Essential Oils. I have used essential oils for a long time at home. Most of us are familiar with scents like Lavender for calming but there are so many essential oils. Their uses are just as varied as their scents. My DoTerra site has a lot of information. Please let me know if I can help answer any questions for you.
I’m so excited to get all this business stuff settled so I can concentrate on working the businesses and taking care of my family. I’m running the 2nd Half Marathon for the San Francisco Marathon on Sunday. I’m excited to get out there and run another half marathon… it’s been almost a month. You know you’re a half fanatic if you have withdrawal symptoms because you haven’t run a half marathon.
