Loving my job and life lately…

Also known as feeling better! But seriously look at these ladies, they show up morning after morning, when most people are in bed and make my job so fun, even when i’m sick, down, just not feeling myself, I walk into a class, see these people, and know I need to bring my A Game!

These ladies are the best! I teach Monday nights, and Tuesday mornings * yes I sleep, but not enough * but these amazing athletes seriously make my job so fun, they keep me on my toes, and make me want to try new things, and create new to me moves like this one!

Grab a weight, drop into a low squat, and steep out side to side alternating legs it burns! I gave my group last night three exercises, each lasting a min, back to back for three mins, and then they got a full 1 min break, we worked on our cardio endurance and had a blast!

We mixed up the second half of the class with jump ropes! Have you used a jump rope in awhile? If not grab one, so easy, and such an amazing workout! My Green juice love is still in full effect up in here, everyday people, making my $99 a good investment!

Speaking of good investments, do you guys commute to work with 5000 bags like I used to? We ll this year for christmas mister got me a backpack and I seriously love it! No more 5000 bags, and falling all over the place on the T. It’s not a million lbs on my back either! It’s amazing. My mom also got me these mitten/ gloves that you can also use your phone with and they are amazing and deff needed in this cold!

What was the best christmas gift? Gift to yourself, or gift you gave to someone. I never thought I would think backpacks were cool ha I guess I am a dork but I love mine! I have also been loving my new years goal of a new recipe a week, and I have been on a soup kick, so Corn Chowder it was last night!

The house might smell like bacon for awhile- opps! ha but the soup was so yummy! I used more potatoes then needed since I don’t eat fish so left that out. I know I am the worst eater/ and adult for no fish, but the sent I just can’t. Someday maybe, but for now I am fish free.

Things I am Loving!

Happy Thursday!
I am so motivated by people who “do it all” and “follow their passion” but it’s scary and hard to do that! More on me following my dream’s later, but if you are in the process, it’s scary trust me, but trust in the plan, and surround yourself with people who believe in you. And know it’s okay to CRY, and I mean those ugly, big bawling tears, they are okay I promise.
Today I was back in the gym bright and early and rocking my favorite T “More then just a pretty Pace”.
April 23 BThen I was off to a meeting at the Edward Kennedy Institute in Boston! Have you been? No matter your political sides it’s great, and so much fun. It’s interactive and historical, and really brings learning to life. It’s free for marathon runners through Sunday as well!
April 23 AAlso in world breaking news I turn the BIG 3-0 this year. Crazy I know. My dad reminded me today I will always be his little girl, and I almost cried again ha. Oh how I love birthday’s but some years they are tough huh?!?! So in celebration I am doing this 5 mile race Sunday ( my actual Birthday) so if you live around here come join the party!
April 23 CIn other news around the world and how each of us is special and unique have you seen this video? These children were blindfolded and found their mom’s by using their own senses other then their eyes, it’s amazing. Don’t compare yourself too much to others we are all special, unique and different.

We forget how special we are when we keep trying to “measure up” and compare ourselves to others. Of course this made me cry too! Also kids and their parents, and what they do for each other. This dad ran the Boston Marathon and lead the pack for the first mile and a half just so his Kids could see him on TV. So amazing!
April 23 D…because even though the announcers didn’t know the name of the guy leading the race after the first mile, two little girls back home in Texas did. Coolest dad ever in my mind!
Also if you want to read about the top 15 Marathon’s check out this Bucket List of them!

On a completely different note I often hear people ask, but how do I get a Six Pack, or I stopped drinking why don’t I look like a magazine cover? Read this article here on the REAL COSTS of getting lean.
April 23 F
