Let's learn from the arrow and the science from the arrow. When things do not go our way, find a way to find the positive.
How many of think you are the next Beyoncé, Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias or Julianne Hough? No? Well, maybe that doesn't stop you from belting out "Single Ladies" in the shower or doing the Salsa in your bedroom on Latin night on DWTS. It's the sheer enjoyment of a pastime that you love. I remember my sister singing when I was younger. She has a beautiful voice. Many people told her as such. Did she boast of her talent? Not at all, but I am certain that she was confident in her skill. If memory serves, she was in competition choir for a few years. Her confidence was silent... Until it came time to sing.
"Adios 2016!" I'm so glad to say those words! Whew... What. A. Year! Never have I been so happy to turn the page on the calendar than I have on this past year.
One of the bonuses of being a personal trainer and group fitness instructor is I get to hear all of your secrets. Now I am not to be confused with your lawyer or priest, make no mistake about that. Trust me. For example, when you skip class and go out for mimosas, I MAY call you out the following week in class if you are slacking. This season is the time of year that I tend to hear the same thing... "I've been so naughty this week."
It has been just over a year since my FOCUS has been on PASSION. Although, I sprinkle it throughout entries, I have not really dedicated an entry on the importance of passion. I ran across a quote this week and it just made me smile. "Passion is the GENESIS of genius." - Galileo Galilei
There are 18 days until Thanksgiving and 49 days until Christmas. That means there are 56 days until the new year is upon us. Does that make anyone else want to pull their hair out? Does anyone else want to stress out during this time?
I want to say "thank you" to my wonderful students. This week was full of "UGH" moments.... All outside of the gym. The world "got me beat down." Ha, ha. I worked hard to take my own advice and not allow these incidents define my days.
It's that time! Staycation have officially started. Guess what? I didn't make it! I was at my husband's company event that is held every year for family and I began talking about work! Face - to - palm. FAIL! One of the employees at the venue mentioned that it looked as I worked out and blah, blah, blah we began talking shop. His wife is a group exercise director for a popular gym chain in the South Dallas area. After a few minutes, I found myself looking around for hubby as I realized I just broke our number one staycation rule. Oopsie!
