SPINNING....


Life has become a blur. I feel like a hamster spinning on a wheel. Several things that I have been working on are in process.

First, one of the things on my BUCKET LIST is to be on "The Amazing Race". The first step to doing that was to get a partner. Snips of course jumped right in. Next came going to an open casting call which we did last week. We went to Michigan on Wednesday. The ride was alot of fun and laughter. Snips driving only got us lost twice. We did 2 minutes in front of the camera. Our plan of what to say fell apart in the first 15sec. so we proceed to joke around and the camera guy was laughing too. We will find out something in a few weeks. Keep your fingers crossed.

Second, my pursuit of becoming a spin instructor. On Saturday I spent 9 hours at a YMCA in Chicago. And I am now certifed to teach Spin. I was at least 15 years older than anyone in my class. I stayed awake and survived 2 sessions on the bike. Now just to find somewhere to teach.

Training has been bumping along and I haven't missed a day in 2 weeks. I am so excited to go to Disney with Flipper and Snips for the Princess Half. Just hopin' the cold does not follow us down there.

Waddling to pack my bag for another busy day.........

Good job on the cert!

That will help keep you in top shape! Show those youngsters what a real bike workout is like!

I would watch that show if you got on it. Fun! And if I were anywhere close I'd come to your spin class. (As long as we didn't have to stand up on the pedals too much. I suck at that!) Yay you for getting certified.
