Happy New Year!

Friday, January 17, 2014

Wow, it's been aaaaages since I've been on Sparkpeople. School ended up taking up every. last. minute. of my time. But, I did get a 4.0! Woohoo!!

Next semester is going to be even more crazy, but this year, I'm trying to learn to find balance. I still need to make time for things that are important to me without school taking over everything. And, if that means I need to sacrifice a 4.0 then it'll be worth it.

Here's to a happy, healthy and BALANCED New Year!!

    balance is hard to find at times but can be found with trial and error. You can find balance and enjoy all the things in your life. Good luck! You can do it =) BTW you have done an amazing job already. Maybe you can share what you've done to be so successful! I guess I could one day become a zumba instructor. A friend and I were discussing this a few weeks ago.

So...I'm Going Back To School!

Friday, August 09, 2013

Yep, this old lady is going to be a college student again! About 90+ credits of my old college credits have transferred over, but I'll still have around 2 years left. I think it's been (wow) 12 years since I last stepped foot on a University campus as a student??

But, if there's one thing I've learned during this whole process, it's that I'm stronger than I think I am and that doing new things...even things that scare me...is a good thing. And, regardless if I'm successful or not, I will grow and learn a lot about myself.

Time to hit those books (and NOT gain the freshmen/transfer 15)!! emoticon

    Yes, this is new to me. This is a yoga pose called a supported headstand.

I have no shame admitting that I was telling my hubby to "Quick, take a picture!!", as I held the pose just long enough for him to snap a picture. emoticon

Still here and a challenge!!

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I know I haven't blogged anything in over two weeks. The shock of finding out I was pregnant only to lose the baby a month later was a bit overwhelming and it's taking me some time to find my new normal.

With that being said, I'm back to exercising and am so happy to back at it! I've gone back to teaching yoga and Zumba Gold with the hopes of getting Aqua Zumba back on track, too. I've also started attending a bootcamp two times a week. It's incredibly challenging, but I'm finding that I like it a lot!

So, I guess that's my challenge for y'all today. Try something new! It's always a good thing to challenge the body and shake things up a bit. It keeps boredom at bay and also makes you use muscles you're not used to using.

What new thing will YOU try this week? emoticon

    Glad that you are back exercising and teaching! I know that you have been through a rough time and I know that exercising and helping others will help to keep your spirits up. The hard thing is that grief can come and go and hit you sometimes when you least expect it. Hang in there!

    Happy to see you and really sounds like your getting busy. Still not much luck finding much on a class, classes to learn on teaching (basic) Zumba and then Gold that's the 1 that I want. But again happy your here and if you think of any thing that might be a help. And you just keep moving! emoticon emoticon
