It's not just this team, I am on a few teams that are not very active any more. I understand people have lives. I still hope everyone is doing well though.

Sorry I haven't checked in for quite some time. I've had a hard time getting a handle on time management lately. I'm really struggling with it. And I feel like the amount of time and energy that goes into maintaining my social network on SP isn't totally worth it. I actually went through a couple of weeks where I didn't even log on to track food and exercise. I can't promise I will be regular on here, but I will try to check in from time to time.

I had my first sale today! My boss put a bunch of Discover Pilates sessions into my schedule. Discover Pilates is a free class that members of our fitness club can sign up for once to learn more about Pilates. So, my boss has me teaching all of these to get me in front of people who are showing a little interest in Pilates. So I had one first thing today. It was an 18 year old who seemed super excited about Pilates when we started. I was able to take her through a good sampling of exercises on the reformer. By the end of the session, she had already formulated a plan in her mind of what she wanted to do. I didn't even have to sell it to her. She wanted to go ahead and sign up for a class once a week now. And once she gets through a 3-month plan with her personal trainer, she wants to add one private lesson a week on top of the class. Because of the time of day she wanted I was able to sign her up for the class my boss is handing over to me in 2 weeks.

Hi everyone! I officially started my new job this past week. In addition, I started back at my part time job. So it was quite a week! I'm exhausted, but I am really enjoying what I'm doing. I'm just hoping getting into a routine will help me keep my energy level up.

I hope everyone has a great week!

If you get a chance to try Pilates, definitely do it. It is so good for your body.

I had a lazy day today, which was quite nice, but I got a game plan for the week.

Tomorrow I've got my weightlifting and a Pilates class in the morning. Then I'm scheduled to work 12-6. It would be 12-7, but the gym is closing at 6 for New Year's Eve. They will reopen at 6AM New Year's Day. Thankfully, I'm not schedule to come in until noon on Tuesday.

There is nothing wrong with taking dance classes as an adult. I wish there were more people who wanted to learn dance as an adult (or had the courage to do so).

I took a Pilates class this morning. I'm still waiting on my paperwork so I can start teaching Pilates. I was told it was supposed to come yesterday in my email, but I haven't gotten it yet.

I taught two dance classes at the gym this morning - preschool ballet and preschool tap. Numbers were crazy low and my boss thought that was weird. I think it was just the day after Christmas. After work I came home and caught up on some stuff around the house. I even finished my January dance lesson plans!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas today! We decided to stay at home for Christmas this year. I don't like doing that. I feel like Christmas should be spent with family (lots of family), so I'm not a fan of it just being the two of us. However, it was nice to sleep in and not have anything on the schedule to do today.

Happy national oatmeal muffin day. I'm not sure I've ever had one, but it sounded healthier, depending what is in it.

Is everyone ready for Christmas?

I just got back from a family trip to Disney World. Next weekend is my final test for my Pilates Level 1 certification. I got word right before Thanksgiving that I will be hired as a full-time Pilates instructor at LifeTime Fitness (where I've been doing my certification).

It is definitely a great workout, but you have to be fully focused. If you're not, you may not get much out of it.

The hubs and I went to church this morning and then came home and had a rest day. It was nice not having anything that needed to get done (other than cooking dinner).

I hope everyone has a great week!

I made it to my TEAM Alpha class (weightlifting) this morning. Then I went to observe a Pilates reformer class and ended up taking the class as well. Then this afternoon I went in to the Pilates studio to work on some exercises and just running the order of a level 1 mat class. One of the instructors was in there giving a private lesson and she complimented me on my form. Then I taught a preschool ballet class.

Tomorrow I have 6 dance classes to teach. Wednesdays are my long work days, as I teach 2 classes in the morning at the gym, then in the afternoon I drive an hour to teach 4 more classes at another place. It sounds like a lot, and it is, but I really love what I do.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Goals can be about something that is free. If you have a significant other, ask them if you lose a certain amount if the will give you a 30 minute back rub... etc.

I don't have a reward system for small goals, mostly because we are incredibly strapped for cash right now and I can't afford to buy anything. When I reach my goal weight, I will have professional head shots done. These are super important for my job, but I don't want to spend the money on them until I've lost the weight.

I started my Pilates certification classes this week! I'm so excited to be embarking on this journey. But it's a long one. Level 1 will take 16 weeks. There are 3 levels and the courses are only offered 2 times per year, which allows to get student teaching done.

I have a big goal of a very expensive pair of shoes when I reach onderland. For every 10 pounds have have smaller incentives like a pair of workout pants or tank top type thing.

By the time we got home, I was so ready to be out of the car! Now my poor hubby gets to drive another 800 miles round trip for work this coming weekend...he's not happy with his boss right now, I don't blame him.

I also have a sit down job. I am a programmer, so I sit in a cubicle all day. Morning exercise doesn't happen for me, I already get up at 4:30 AM to be at work by 6, so yeah, not getting up at 3:30 to be able to work out. I usually do it after work, as I am off at around 3 PM

That's a LONG road trip , Chrissy!

Kalewine, I am envious that you have a job that allows you to move around so much. I have a mostly desk job. I do try to get up and walk at regular intervals, but lately the walking as had to be all indoors due to smoke from the wildfires. The air quality is so poor that it's actually hazardous to be outside!

I don't care much for mornings and getting up early to workout just doesn't happen. I've tried and it is not for me. so, working out happens in the evening after the 2 year old goes to bed. I've not been as consistent as I would like so that is my goal for the week- Get to the gym every other day.

The hubs and I went to church this morning and our section had a section party afterwards. Because we go to an extremely large church, they divide the church into sections of about 200-300 people and each section gets to have a section party (potluck) once a month. Multiple sections have parties each week. It happened to be our week this time around. It was nice to get to hang out with the people we sit near at church each week.

Then this afternoon, I did some inspiration work for work. I call the time spent looking at other people's choreography "inspiration work" because it inspires me to think outside my own bubble. Then I ordered my books and reviewed policies for my upcoming course certifying in Pilates. Classes start a week from tomorrow.

Tomorrow I plan to go to TEAM Alpha (like crossfit) and yoga in the morning. Then in the afternoon I need to pay some bills. And I have a chiropractor appointment.

I hope everyone has a great week!

It has indeed been a crazy summer. Actually, life has just been busy since Christmas for me. I'm back on Spark People after a long absence during which I gained back most of the weight I had previous lost. emoticon

It's time to carve out some time in my busy life to take care of me!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while friends. It's been a crazy summer. Quick update: I'm still teaching dance. We've started fall session already at one studio. Another place I teach keeps a year-round schedule. And the third place starts fall at the beginning of September.

In addition, I've decided to start my recertification in Pilates, this time also certifying in equipment as well as mat. I received notification a couple days ago that I got both scholarships I applied for, which reduces the cost of level 1 by over $1100! I will spend 16 weeks this fall completing the level 1 certification. Then, hopefully, in the spring I will begin level 2. Finally, I should be able to finish up with level 3 next fall. So the whole thing should take a year and a half. However, I believe I'll be able to go ahead and start teaching once I've completed level 1.

My husband and I started seeing a chiropractor about a month ago. Boy has it made a difference. I didn't even think I needed to see a chiropractor. But he has really helped with my shoulder issue (stems from my thoracic spine pulling toward my shoulder, thus scrunching my muscles between my spine and shoulder blade), reduced issues with my ankles, kept my headaches at bay, and increased my energy. All of that from spinal adjustments (except the ankle, those are adjusted on their own).

I hope everyone has a great week!

How is everyone doing? This group has been pretty quiet lately.

Sounds like a busy day, you've got this!

I'm on day 4 with no sugar, the lethargic feeling and headaches are much better today.
