Happy happy Friday to you! I know I’ve been absent for a few days…so I guess we’ve got to catch up on life, right? Well not much is going on over here…oh except this…
Passed my indoor cycling certification class with flying colors! Woot! I am looking forward to getting my booty in that saddle and teaching a bunch of hungry indoor cyclists…like a boss.
So let’s back up to yesterday. I decided to take the day off from the 9 to 5 to go to this annual fitness convention called Dallas Mania. If you haven’t heard of it it’s where they bring together all kinds of fun fitness formats (like Zumba, FlirtyGirl Fitness, Tabata training, Piloxing, bootcamps, etc) and conduct workshops and certifications. They bring some of the hottest instructors in the industry to teach you the nuts and bolts of everything fitness. So when I heard about the Schwinn cycling certification I immediately jumped on it! It was an 8 hour day filled with fun – we took 2 45 minute cycle courses that day and received a manual explaining things like bike fit and class design. At the end we took a test and boom! You’re in.
Now I have to audition at my gym so I hope it goes well! I plan on going over the manual and doing a little bit more studying to make sure I go in fully prepared. I am so pumped to see what’s to come and so excited I have one more notch on the fitness instructor belt!
So now that we’re caught up, let’s get back to business shall we…here are my favorites this week:
I must have THESE Steve Madden flats for fall…the leopard ones…I’m on a mission to find them…ASAP. Anyone seen them?
Quinoa gluten-free pasta
Now, I am not the person that immediately jumps on the gluten free train (since I’m not gluten intolerant) but I have to tell you that I LOVE this pasta! I love elbow pasta (so much that I could eat it plain) and the texture of these noodles are just perfect. Plus quinoa is packed with protein and fiber and leaves you SUPER full. It’s a win win!
This week I am all about empowering words or motivational messages and I loved this video so I had to share it with you.
I am running to this Outkast song “B.O.B.” this week. I promise if you crank it up it will make you want to run wicked roadrunner FAST!
Oh, and this just makes me laugh. The power of social media.
What song, mantra, or video is inspiring you this week? What is your favorite fall clothing accessory?
