Just Checking In

I have had my face buried in books quite a bit lately…not stacked quite this high, of course (thank goodness).  My brain is soaking up so much information…and I have only read through five chapters in my personal training certification manual.  It is a ton of information.  Really.

I can now successfully name all the major muscle groups in the entire body and even smaller muscles (that serve as antagonist, synergistic, or stabilizer muscles to major ones).  I can also successfully name all the bones in the body (that I am required to know).  This girl can even tell you what ribosomes do…and where they can be found in the body (myofibrils, in case you wanted to know where to find them).  Look at me go!

The heat.  It is awful.  I forgot how much I hate the summer.  Hate it.  Here in Cincinnati it is 99 and muggy.  We do not have central air here in the house, so these poor window units are struggling to even take the slightest edge off of that kind of heat.  I will say; however, the summer heat and humidity are easier on my 200-pound body than they were last year on my 315-pound body.  I still feel icky, though, but less likely to complain incessantly about it.

My one year anniversary is coming up on Tuesday (July 10th).  As my fellow blogger, J, mentioned in a recent post, the time has both flown and crawled.  An interesting mix.  I have been reflecting on the past year quite a bit as I inch closer to that milestone.  The changes that have been made are incredible…staggering, even.  I would *never* have guessed my life (my body) would be what it is today.  Of course, I still have quite a bit of path left in front of me to travel as well.  Although, I must admit…I look forward to it much more than I did this time last year.

How is your week going so far?  Any big milestones coming your way?
