Having been an active member of SWEAT Chicago for a year, I was no stranger to using a kettlebell in my workouts. That being said, no matter how many times I did swings or squats in those classes, I had never devoted a block of time to perfecting my form, which is surprising since I obsess over things like that. When Erin of Loop Looks suggested we meet up at OTG Bootcamp for some kettlebell work, I jumped right on that idea.
One thing I've always tried to be on here is pretty transparent, but lately I feel like I haven't been completely upfront about some of the struggles I've been experiencing. A lot of my experience with Paleo revolved around the weight I lost. It's something I was and am still very proud of. Unfortunately, as the saying goes, not all that glitters is gold.
All the details from last week's workouts! I'm trying to run more and fit in some additional total body workouts. I used to rely solely on my fitness classes for the total body stuff. Now, I'm finding that I enjoy it more and more, so I decided to start creating these on my own at-home to fill in on days I don't go to classes.
A few months back, I connected with Paul Sippil, the founder of Community Dining. His vision was to bring together people in the community to support restaurants, farms, venues and more that focus on local and sustainable farming. The events provide an opportunity to find out more about the practices they use and discuss various health and wellness topics.
I like to think that I come up with great ideas frequently. The kinds of ideas that still seem really good two weeks later, like starting this blog. Sometimes though, the idea seems good in theory but when reality hits, I realize I am in way over my head.
