The Little Good Things

I have recently taken a detour in my life, I got a job working at Orangetheory Fitness because I wanted to be a trainer for them. However, Orangetheory wasn’t the place for me, because it was during pre-sale before a studio was open. It was not a good work environment. Then getting a job in the car industry for Mercedes-Benz of Delray was a step up. It’s fun, I work with good co-workers. Although the hours are irregular, I get a late start work until 7, and also work Saturdays. I do enjoy tutoring customers on their kick-ass AMG’s. So I have to remember the little good things, that make me happy.

Like joy rides… err… I mean teaching the customers hows to use their car features.

Mercedes has this model that sells, the AMG GLE 63 coupe with a P3 package. That means it has all the bells and whistles. It’s one of favorite vehicles because it’s a crossover SUV with a spacious interior, gorgeous exterior design with a smooth curved “coupe” look (it still has 4 doors), and quality sports performance engine (that’s AMG BABY, the sound of this badboy ever so pleasing). So with all the bells and whistles, the P3 package has Distronic and Self Parking. Meaning, it has a high quality cruise control and the car will park itself on command.

I have delivered a couple of this within the last week and gone for rides showing the features and it’s quite fun! It’s also rewarding to see customers like the features of their car.

So that makes me happy when I am at work. I was also able to be added to the bonuses so for every perfect survey we recieve, I get extra money! If I hustle enough, I can be successful.

Futhermore, I have gotten back into running and enjoy running with Fleet Fleet Delray. I am glad they have early morning workouts I can get in before my workday. The store is close to my home and their running route is right up the street along A1A.

I can run with them twice a week before work at Mercedes. Workout with Gravity & Oxygen. I am seeing results they are a performance gym that focueses on different muscle groups per workout session. For example, yesterday we had core focus. I woke up today with a better looking and feeling stomach. G + O and some running with Fleet Fleet, I am one happy fafi. Not to mention they both have such cool trendy gear since the owners of both are my age… everyone knows I like trends. Like #PineappleRunCrew… with cool pineapple tops to wear while you run. Or G + O just has cool mustache tops and Movember workouts.

It’s the little things that make me happy.

Until nice time.

Ultra Girl Goes Solo

B is now training MMA/jiu jitsu, but he  awakened a passion in me for ultra running. Now that he is not training for ultras, I am on my own to train for the next one, it’s a up to me to look back and assess what I could have done better in my training.
Things I know to change:

1. Recovery 

I must recover smarter, and understand my own bodily needs; ice baths, Epsom salt, collagen supplements, visiting a sports medicine Doctor…etc.

2. Nutrition 
gotta eat better & cleaner! I may have a food allergy, so I have to look into that, or perhaps it’s just me not eating clean enough)

3. Workout Diversity 

Change up workouts 

I must lift for good strength & conditioning. It’s important to have a strong core, including glutes and upper legs muscles to be a good, and better runner

Also I need to do yoga, my body seriously needs to stretch its little muscles!

4. Support 

I need to make valid connections to like-minded people, going on the same path as me, to support them & also for personal good feels-not a lot of people are going to understand why I like the ultra or running over a 5k at all, but that’s okay, it’s my life & this is what makes me happy)!

 5. Aesthetics 

Last but not ast but not l, I am a girly girl, I still care about my appearance, I can’t neglect my hair, skin, teeth & outfits. With the right pair of shoes, a fit body, good hair—and a determined mind, this girl can do anything & so it will make working an office job better as a corporate designer!!

Also I am visiting the dentist to get teeth healthy & over time get invisilign.
***I am attempting to this all on my own! It feels good to be strong & independent! Yet, have support from my boyfriend & my father!  Brandon is such a wonderful young man who I am insanely attracted to. 

My dad as everyone knows, is just the kindest and more supportive man ever. I want to be strong for him, and I know he wants to start trail running once he moves to Virginia!! You bet I will be visiting him and running with him! 

Let’s do GREAT THINGS!!!***

I apologize for formatting and grammar errors. This is a quick jot using my iPhone! 

 Me walking my 4th lap during my first ultra, my knee was in serious pain!! But I was happy to be out there. It was beautiful and very fulfilling to be doing something so epic!
