Lots has been in the works lately! Like I had imagined before, sooner or later, I was bound to start slacking on this blog thing. Anyways, training is still going great. 4-6 times a week depending on my recovery and how I’m feeling. It’s currently the holy month of Ramadan so I have been fasting for approximately 14-15 hours a day. Since I train at 8 pm (break fast at 6:30ish pm), I only have an hour and 30 minutes window to digest the food. So I really have to control what I eat. Dates are very popular during the month of Ramadan, so I usually down somewhere between 10-15 date with A LOT of water just so I can replenish my energy levels (insulin, water, etc..) along with some soup, salad, and a lean protein cut. A small portion that’s just enough to keep me going for the next few hours and then after my workout, I have a decent sized portion of you name it. Gotta get my gains in during this month!
VERY BIG NEWS! Two weeks ago I decided to take on the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Seminar/Course and I just got the results back today. Absolutely pleased and proud of myself. When I talked myself into it, it was a 100% personal. I wanted this for me. To prove to myself that I can do it if I put my mind and heart into it. Today, I’m a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. I will definitely use the knowledge that I have gained and gathered over the last few months and from the great coaches around me to benefit myself and those around me in the best way possible. Avoiding the novice’s curse (skipping the basics and jumping right into the challenging bits) is a daily challenge for me and if I ever get to coach, I will make sure I emphasise the basics and build my athletes on from there. I’m absolutely in love with this great CrossFit community. Everyone around me has been so supportive and encouraging.
