Weekend in Review 1 | April 2015

Well, this hasn’t been much of a weekend for excitement.  I started coming down with a cold Wednesday, as you all might remember from my stellar Thursday post (<– linked).  Friday it hit pretty hard, but I made it through my entire work day like a champ.  Surprised myself with my productiveness even.

Friday night was another story.   All I can remember is getting home at 3:30, running to the grocery store, making turkey kielbasa with sauerkraut for dinner and then having the great idea to post an old school photo in honor of National Sibling Day.

Hold your horses, folks.


Best Facebook comment of the night referred to us looking very Full House-ish.


8:30pm hit and I was digging through my medicine basket for some NyQuil that I for real jumped for joy after finding.   9pm in bed for some 20/20 and that’s where it went blank until 7am Saturday morning.

NyQuil.  You did the job.  You and I made a great team.


I actually taught Insanity at 8:15am.   Complete with coughing, a growly man’s voice and tons of snot.  My class was just as thankful for that visual as you are now.

You should actually feel sorry for them.


Spelling/Grammar Check:  You’re sick…

Come on eCard making people. Get it together!

I made it through a full 50 minute class, surprisingly!  I had plans to just do 30, but something about the music, the excitement, the nervousness and the energy I get from teaching always gets me through.

I even managed to keep the momentum going after class!  I took a little drive out West to meet with my friend Jeff to check out his new gym (Active 180 for you West O folks)  and THEN had lunch with Claire at Jason’s Deli!

The rest of the day took zero effort as Champ and I watched the boys take apart an old Blazer to make into a convertible.








Champ loved it.  Hilarious.


Still felt pretty good going into the early evening hours ( I sounded worse then I felt) so we met up with Tyree and Cole in Bennington, NE for some dinner at The Warehouse.   Cole recently bought a Harley so he had been out testing his new wheels and skills.  For a new rider he was doing AWESOME!

We failed at a photo opp with the four of us, but Clint and I got one in while at the 21st Saloon for a quick nightcap.




Holy head cold, earache, headache and exhausted limbs.  Seriously, it’s like my cold went full force today, so I have managed to sit on the couch basically the entire. stinking. day.

What a waste.

Grocery store, couch, morning Food Network shows.



Couch, Couch, Lunch, Couch, Couch, Couch, Dinner, Couch, Couch….



Like I said.   Basically a waste.

I did get a little work done when I had an attention span (my attention span is pretty slim on a normal day… add in a day where I am feeling less then stellar and I can’t seem to focus on one thing for more than 20 minutes, max).

See…. I am already on a tangent.

Point. Proven.

Anyway, I am working on making some gym connections as I will officially be offering my first Certification soon.

Ya, you heard that right. 🙂 

I can announce I am moving along a little faster in the Beachbody Ambassador program and am already working on getting my first Certification on the books.

Which means I can announce my certifications as being the official….


So incredibly excited!

There is a hierarchy in the Master Trainer world much like any other organization.   I will keep learning, growing and climbing.

That also means a lot of work.  I’ve got quite a few assignments to get done this week along with securing my first host location.

On that note, some have been asking about my half marathon in May.  I had to let that go.  I am going to an Insanity certification that weekend in Des Moines as part of my learning process.   The weekend before I am going to a PiYo certification in Kansas.

A lot to learn.  A lot to do.  Had to say no.  (which is hard for me to do, as you all probably already know)

I’ll go into more detail soon, but until then, let’s all hope that tomorrow I feel decent enough to run my Turbo class and get some video of it. 🙂

With that, I leave you all for a nice warm shower and my bed.
