This weekend marks the first weekend in over a month I’ll actually be home, so even though we’ve still got Labor Day and all that madness, to me it feels like the summer whirlwind is starting to settle into fall. It’s always one of my favorite times of year, and it’s bringing with it a few fun things to the blog. Get excited!
A Beginner Workout Series
I get a lot of requests for beginner workouts, so I’ve put together a bunch you can do at home (or the gym) with minimal equipment. Every Tuesday for the next six weeks, I’ll be posting one (in addition to more advanced workouts each week). Fall always feels like a fresh start, so it’s the perfect time to begin your fitness journey—let’s do it together!
I’m Going to Be a Licensed Aromatherapist!
Kids aren’t the only ones going back to school! Ok, maybe this is just something for me to look forward to this fall (ha!), but I’ve been obsessed with essential oils for years now, and am finally making this love affair official. In addition to fitness, I am extremely passionate about holistic healing methods, so an aromatherapy course feels like the perfect next step in expanding my health education. I wanted to find a program endorsed by the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, as well as one I can do from home, so after a lot of research, I decided on The Institute of Integrative Aromatherapy.
I still need to pay off the cost of the course, but as soon as that’s complete (isn’t delayed gratification the worst?!) I can get started, which I’m beyond eager to do. Realistically, I hope to start in November. I’ll have a year to complete it, but with my flexible schedule I should be able to finish in less time. I’ll (obviously) blog about it in more detail throughout the course and can’t wait to share all my newfound knowledge of natural remedies, herbs & oils with you once I’m a certified hippie aromatherapist!
New Workout Equipment
TRX workouts, BOSU workouts—any other requests? My back-to-school shopping is going to consist of new workout equipment for my home but, more importantly, for the blog! Variety is always a good thing.
What are you looking forward to this fall?
