So, I’ve been MIA for a while but lately I’ve been uninspired. I’ve still been working out at least 5 days a week of course, but I feel like everything in the health and fitness world has been so redundant and conflicting lately. I mean, I see at least two articles a week (sometimes from the same source) that contradict each other.
First, I’ll give you guys a little update on my last semester, which was probably the most informative semester I’ve had during my experience as a dietetics major. I took physiology and advanced nutrition, among other courses, and although physiology was a bitch, I learned more about the human body and it’s reactions to food with these two courses than I’ve learned my entire college career. I won’t go into the boring details but hopefully my knowledge will show in my blog posts and future counseling.
I recently started doing CKO kickboxing, which I absolutely LOVE. I’ve been in such a funk lately with my workouts, so it was definitely time for a change. Of course I’m still running and following a training plan, but I try to do CKO on my short run days. The classes go by super fast and they virtually target every part of your body. They’re also great for relieving stress after a long day. I try to just clear my mind and focus on the workout during them. Hopefully I’ll be able to do so during the semester, even if I am still bringing textbooks to the gym to read while I run.
Last semester I also began working at a chiropractor’s office as a nutrition advocate. Dr. Feldman practices Nutrition Response Testing (NRT), so I basically help him with these patients, along with helping out with other office and social media duties. The perk of this gym is that I get tested for free and I get discounts on any supplements I may have to buy. I’m not sure if they have had any affect on me but I have noticed that I am nauseous less often. I haven;t been very consistent with my supplement intake but I’ll post more on my progress once I get ingot he swing of it.
