How many times were you asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" I'm sure we've all been asked that question. Some of us know and pursue that passion, some of us know, but settle for something else, and some of us have no freaking clue. I think I was one of the no freaking clue people. So when I ventured off to college I spent the first year trying to figure it out, and when I still hadn't, I settled for a business degree because it seemed reasonable, realistic, and the classes were fairly easy. Having a business degree has been great, I've had some good jobs since college, made some good money, travelled and seen the world. I wouldn't ever trade it. But upon returning to California after spending two years in Australia, I wanted a fresh start. I wanted to make sure this time I didn't settle, this time it was about finding something I was passionate about. Sure it's important to make a decent living and to be able to support yourself and your family, but its equally important to enjoy what you do. I've spent my life in sports and have always loved nutrition, hence the blog, but it wasn't until now that I realized this is what I needed to do with my life. So I'm doing it. It's that simple. It's going to be a learning experience, and it's going to take time before I'm living comfortably again, but I'm happy, and I think that's the most important part. I just finished my first week of coaching and it was awesome. I'm programming workouts and meeting some amazing people who have the same passion I do. To continually improve their health and fitness. We all struggle with things in life, and I love being that person they come to to start their day, or to finish it off and I always strive to ensure they leave feeling stronger and better than they did the day before. I hope everyone had a great week and is enjoying a lovely weekend. If you need something to make it even better, then eat these; they're easy, delicious, and guaranteed to make you feel good.
