Feet Locked, Balanced, Or Not…

My Feet were locked into the pedals and I thought it would be a swift transition to unlock and gracefully land on my feet.  Fast forward to roughly 10 seconds later where I lay giggling on the concrete…yes, the last week and a half have been filled with amateur moves for a “wanna-be”  and “ going to be- biker”

I have left my .com job and have since been picking up a book filled with information regarding bones, muscles, and a ton of exercises that strengthen the heart and challenge the muscles.  I am excited to become certified as a personal trainer and get the ball rolling in the next leg of my life.

If these past two paragraphs seem like a hodge podge of reflection then you are not mistaken.  I am in a whirlwind of transition and am excited for the changes ahead, but am holding tight to the things that give me peace amongst chaos; yoga, run, bike, read, and write.  Yes, these things are what get me out of bed in the morning and bring a HUGE smile to my face.

Below are goals for August:


1)      Study 4 chapters of my NASM textbook a week

2)      Draft and submit an article to Experience Life Magazine


1)      Pick up cycling ( continue in Minnesota)

2)      Complete 6 week strength plan 3x week (includes: pull-ups, squats, sit-ups, dips, push-ups) strong is the new skinny!


1)      Complete my California Bucket List

2)      Go to church with my 2 good friends in Minnie

What are you going after in August? Are you enjoying the last month of the summer?

Dream big. Go hard.
