While I have been taking my hiatus from teaching, I have not stopped thinking of my sweet friends from classes. The other day I gathered the signs that I would place at the front desk before my classes, and removed them from my car. I sat them on my bed and just stared at them. I looked at each sign and reflected on each class it represented; thinking about the students, milestones and good times had. And then it happened...
So many times for you to try out new classes in the New Year. A chance to make new friends and who might just have the same goals as you. That is just one of the benefits of Group Exercise classes.
Yes, yes... The schedule is late. I am so sorry. I have been in bed with a nasty bug. "If you have been in bed, you should have been able to post!" No, my loves. When I have not been... Expelling... I have been sleeping. Like that? Was that lady-like? I'm dainty like that. So,... Continue Reading →
Afterwards, I was able to speak to these wonderful women. I shared my journey with one woman. I explained that it was my husband that gave me the courage and encouraged me to quit my full-time corporate job and pursue fitness full throttle. And then she asked the question...

Whether it is the faces that she gives me because she is working to her limit or her contagious smile, I look forward to seeing her (and frown inside when she isn't there). Last week she shared something with me and she has allowed me to share with all of you:
Change is coming. Change is inevitable. Whether it is the seasons (hello cooler temps and changing of the leaves) or something bigger; CHANGE HAPPENS! Recently I decided to invoke change based upon the inspiration of some of my students, clients and colleagues. I saw how they were bettering themselves and I was asking myself, "Am I the BEST version of myself that I can be?"
Did you notice something different on the schedule this week? I'll give you a hint... It's on Wednesday. That's right. Zumba® Gold is back on the schedule.
For many areas, this week is back to school! This week is not just about early bedtime and picking out "the right outfit". It is also about goal setting!
Naps.... Naps, carbs and trash TV. That is mostly what my staycation consisted. Don't get me wrong, we had some great family bonding time, but there was a great deal of naps, carbs and trash TV. I know the hubby fully embraced staycation mode when he actually crawled into our bed to take a nap instead of just taking a 20 minute cat nap on the couch. This was on day two of staycation.
