I am sorry for the complete lack of posts and reach in here. This is an update while I wait for my class to begin. So, this will be pretty brief 🙂
Twitter & Other Handles: I updated all of my handles from Facebook to others such as LinkedIn to the name @iamspeedyalex. Snapchat does not allow username changes at the moment. So, @iamspeedyalex shows as my display name after I’ve been added.
#SquatEveryDay: I started with an idea to squat every day for 60 days from seeing an interesting set of videos on YouTube where Mike Rashid was doing it from back in 2015. Essays and exams took literally all of my time immediately after Day 1 last week. Today I will be getting in Day 3 of the restarted challenge. I have had a crippling headache since the first Day 1 of the original attempt at the challenge. Today, two of my friends did their Day 1. Isn’t that exciting? More people hopping on the Squat Train!
I’ve made a plan to read a new book every 3 weeks. This will keep me moving quickly into my textual learning and towards a healthier consistency in my knowledge increase. I’m grinding through #365IDEAS by John Sparks right now. The plan is for me to begin a new book, the #AskGaryVee on Saturday.
Dietary Status: I fell off pretty hard from lack of funding for easy follow through on how I used to grocery shop. I didn’t put forth the effort to improve in smarter shopping. I stopped cooking every day, and I stopped paying attention completely to my caloric count. My weight didn’t spike, but with my recent extreme lack of sleep I really could benefit even more from proper dietary nutrition. Even in the least of consuming enough calories to supply my body with at least enough energy to make it through the day. I am back at working towards paying strict attention. Just starting overall caloric counting. I will be paying more attention to the detailing of where and how much comes from what.
I had a few meeting with some social media and branding specialists. Currently working on some business homework and organizing. Taxes, legalities, socials, and relationship building. I am currently refreshing my knowledge in training planning ideas and strategies.
Eventually the posts will be switched to a more business standpoint under the name of @iamspeedyalex @iamspeedyalex is what I’m branding as myself. Having a common name isn’t always a good thing 😉
Well, here we are. Returned to finish the travel lists of the two places.
This time, the destination is Yosemite National Park.
What better place is there to do on a trip to Yosemite than to visit Old Faithful? It’s eruptions are pretty timely too. Very extraordinary. It is a photospread of water explosions just waiting to happen. Following here would definitely be the Grand Canyon for a sight see and exploration. This is one of the most popular hiking areas in the park. Twenty miles long and half a mile wide is very impressive. Talk about a giant gash across our land. I don’t think we have bandaids big enough for this one.
In North America, the largest fresh-water lake above 7,000 feet is the Yellowstone Lake. It is very popular among anglers and boaters. Even though I am neither of the two I would take in all of the scenery and beauty of His Creation. Nature has a beauty beyond both words and image.
I really would love to see the Grand Prismatic Spring. The colors are psychodelic. The colors along with the vast and amazing wildlife at the Park are exactly what would make this trip well worth it. One place that would be great to see wildlife would be the Hayden Valley.
The Lower Geyser Basin is astoundingly with mud instead of water. I always thought they were just spewing water. Apparently, the muds here are also highly colored in the geothermic area north of Old Faithful.
For some hiking, I’d definitely have to go out to Mount Washburn. The summit of this mountain reaches over 10,000 feet into the sky. How cool is that?
Do you love bears or wolves? I mean, who doesn’t? Boy, that sounded like a silly question. If you want to learn more about them while seeing a few you can visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.
I would like to start out by apologizing for the lack of posts as of late. Things had gotten pretty busy here with Christmas and family arrivals. Hard to type with little cousins running around the house throwing hard plastic and metal toys every second.
Here is how everything seems to have looked with WordPress for me starting out this year. Much room for progress. I look forward to posting more blogs, and connecting with you all.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 220 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
But I love it all: the decorations, the snow, the food, the music, the overly sappy Folgers commercials, the winter wardrobe, even Hallmark movies with their mawkish charm. I love it. all.
But this year, aside from the fact that it’s mid December and we’re still having weather in the 60’s, there’s a different feeling in the air.
I don’t need to tell you about the state of the world right now.
The tragedies in Paris, San Bernadino, and Colorado Springs; everything surrounding ISIS; the negativity spewing between presidential candidates. This year’s Christmas season has been marked by an overwhelming blanket of sadness. Of pain.
So what can we do about it? Aside from pray? It’s easy to slip into a state of
Finally got myself a blog started :)) I will be posting randomly as I do not have it as a steady thing as of yet. This is going to start out as more of a random fitness thoughts blog probably.
This is just a first post let’s get started kind of posting this time. This is just more of a free-write style more than anything. I will be including newly discovered thoughts on yoga too as I have started a 30-day yoga challenge I was put up to. 😉
I will be taking my NASM Exam in one month from now. I am excited! I already have a diploma from National Personal Training Institute on the Theory and Practice of Personal Training. I also have received certifications in Kettlebell Training and Suspension Training from the NPTI in Houston, Texas. I flew to Orlando in June 2015, this year, to take part in the day long Speedblast Training from the NPTI in Orlando, Fl. It was a blast!
I am just starting out in the fitness industry, and I am greatly looking forward to earning experience and increasing my knowledge and practice over the coming years.
Thanks for taking the time to read this write. Have a blessed and glorious day!
