This ecard couldn’t be more true for me! I always get to class early to claim “my bike” and will sometimes not even go to class if I’m running too late because I hate using any other bike in the room. I know, I know. I completely realize how ridiculous that sounds but it’s one of my little corks, I guess. I’ve bonded with that bike over may hours of sweat sessions by now and it just seems wrong to cheat on it with another bike! Maybe I’m a little too attached…Speaking of spin, I had an audition for a indoor cycling instructor position at a local gym this weekend. It doesn’t sound like they have enough classes open that fit my availability schedule to bring me on board right now, so the audition was more like a “get to know you” type meeting instead.
The lady I met with was really nice, and mentioned a number of training sessions they would like me to attend coming up soon, so I’m really excited about that. She also mentioned she would like me to teach boot camp style classes, in addition to spin, so it looks like I’ll actually be teaching two class formats when all is said and done. Sounds like an exciting, but do-able challenge, and I’m excited to get the ball rolling. It seems like I’ve been working toward this forever now, so it’s exciting to see things finally starting to come to fruition!
I started the 30 Day Yoga Challenge by Yoga with Adriene this week and have been loving it so far. I’m glad I decided to hop on board, even though I started pretty late in the game for those who started on January 1st. That’s the beauty of prerecorded videos. You can start the series whenever you want!
Here’s what I was up to last week:
Monday: Physical Therapy & Spin Class
Wednesday: Day 1 – Ease Into It (repeat) & Day 2 – Stretch & Soothe by Yoga with Adriene & Physical Therapy Homework Exercises
This is what Coco looked like after yesterday’s yoga session. She spent the whole time I was doing my videos sniffing, licking and jumping up on my legs. She was just as exhausted as I was!
That “Six Pack Abs” video is NO JOKE! I was shaking like crazy! Thankfully it was only around 16 minutes long. I’ve definitely noticed a change in the way my legs and midsection have started to feel one week into the 30 Day Yoga Challenge. Everything feels stronger and more engaged than before. I’ve definitely liking that part of things and also taking time for myself once a day has been really nice, too.
Then I had this yummy little snack that I will definitely be eating again soon! Waffles, PB and Suja Berry juice! Winner! They just started selling Suja juice at the grocery store by my house (and even at a lower price than other stores I’ve seen them at in the city!) so I had to pick some up when I was there! This one was delicious! I think the “Essentials” line of these juices are new since I’ve never seen them before, so I was even more excited they were available by my house!
I hope you all have a great Monday! 🙂
