Over the last month or so, I’ve been asked to be a Ambassador for Chike and I’ve earned my Level 1 Certificate to coach Crossfit (In local affiliates). Although my blogs have been few and far between, the things happening my my life are HUGE!
I’m continuing to loose fat, which is awesome. I’m currently experimenting with Intermittent Fasting. Honestly, I’m a few weeks in and I don’t think it’s doing all that much more than my normal eating schedule. Why did I start that? I had been hearing and reading up on it and figured I’d give it a try. I eat the same sort of plan and calories, but only during an 8 hour block of time and then fast the other 17 hours in the day. Like I said, I’m not seeing a big difference in terms of weightless or fat loss than before. Before I went all in, I did start skipping my pre-workout meal (Fasting until after my workout) and I did notice that my body responded well to that change. We all work differently and it’s good to try new things (Except for staving… don’t do that!). I’ll continue fasting for another week or so to finish out a month and see what I think at that point. I’ll let you know.
I’ve started coach shadowing at Trivium and have really enjoyed the experience. Next week I’ll coach my first solo class and I’m pretty pumped about that! Having the opportunity to coach people who are wanting to make changes like I have is a gift and I’m so excited about the opportunity. I really believe I’ll be able to make a difference in people’s lives if they let me.
The last big deal is being an Ambassador for Chike. This company is awesome. After being introduced to their product at the Crossfit Regionals, I couldn’t get enough of it. Their Protein Coffee is so freaking good! After an incredible phone conversation, about who they are as a company, I was fully committed! They are a Texas Company which manufactures all their own product in Texas. They have complete control over ingredients, mixes, and product. If you want a different mix of supplements, protein, and flavor they can do it! How cool is that? They are a company that operates with zero debt and is looking to invest more in advertising now. The name, Chike, means power and strength. For them, that ties in their faith and what their product hopes to do for those who take it. I truly believe in this company and love what they are doing and how they are doing it. Please check them out! Also if you order some Chike, use my discount code “FitBy40” and you’ll save some money.
Last two things. I was featured on two podcasts recently and had a conversation with a company that does documentary series who where interested in what I do. Kind of a weird world I live in.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be doing some blogs around some research I’ve been doing on obesity. Hopefully you will find it as interesting and challenging as I do.
In the mean time, Keep Going!
