A New Routine

Well this past Monday I started another semester of college.
If I stay on track I should be done by next summer which is awesome!
But what I really wanted to do here was brag about how freaking awesome my classes are.

This is my classroom 3 out of the 5 days I have class
Isn't it awesome?

Mondays and Wednesdays I have a class called Total Fitness. Basically the class is working out and learning how to make a workout routine for the body. This class is a breeze, I mean hey, I do it every morning at the gym. The only problem I've run in to is the people in this class, well most of them, have no clue what they are doing. People will stand at a machine just talking and trying to figure it out while I'm waiting to use it. It was disheartening to not get a workout in today, but there's always next week.

Tuesday and Thursday mornings I have a yoga class. Unfortunately my class got changed around a little bit on the first day. My class was Gyrokinesis Yoga, but my teacher just had a baby at the beginning of the month so she's on maternity leave. Our substitute teacher doesn't know that style so we're just doing vinyasa yoga which is fine by me. So in the morning I go from yoga at my gym to yoga at school. It's quite relaxing. 
A lot of people in that class don't know yoga so we had to do very basic simple stuff so it's reaaaaaaaally easy for me. Halfway through the semester my normal teacher should be back so I can learn a new style of yoga!

Tuesday and Thursday afternoons I have Human Anatomy. I'm excited for this class, but at the same time not. It's a buttload of homework (read: lots of reading)
 It took me 3 days to read 21 pages, there's just so much vocab.

After my lecture on Thursday I have my anatomy lab which I'm partially looking forward to, partially wishing it was already over. We look at human cadavers which I have no problems with, but we also look at dead cats which I'm am absolutely not excited about. I love cats more than humans so I don't want to look at a dead one, but there's nothing I can do about it.

Fridays I have an introduction class to personal training. I am beyond excited for this class. One of my two teachers has a fitness resume a mile long. He's got like 15 certifications or so, almost competed in the Olympics, still is part of them in a coach-like position, has finished 65 triathlons. Our class is broken down into a lecture at the beginning and then after we work in the gym with our second teacher. We've also been told that the gym portion of our class won't take all of class so we can get like 45 minutes-1 hour of our own workout time. Super stoked!

Lastly I have nutrition class online. I've been desperately trying to get into this class for the years I've been at my school and this semester I finally got it. I'm really looking forward to all the stuff I will be learning (and reading) about.
We have to make food logs and such every 4 weeks and when she announced that all I could think about was that I already do that every Wednesday for What I Ate Wednesday!

All in all I think this is going to be an awesome semester and I'm definitely looking forward to it!
