Gymnastics Yo



Nice picture huh? Getting 3 kids to look at me and pose at the same time is impossible. This was the best I could get. They were trying to show me their ribbons. There were people waiting and I took about 8 pictures to get this gem of a picture.
Diva has been doing gymnastics for about a year and half now. She LOVES it. Over the course of her gymnastics career the Dudes have been sitting in a little windowed room watching her. Every once and a while they would sneak through the door and try to join the class. My plan was to sign them up the second they turn 3. The facility we go to has a Mommy and Me class for kids under 3. Problem being there is one Mommy and two Me's. Doesn't really work out.
One of Diva's instructor's, Miss Bailey, has watched the Dudes and their friend Fynn whose sisters do gymnastics with Diva. She has seen them sneak into class and how active they are. Three weeks ago Miss Bailey let the 3 boys do a trial class. Fynn's birthday is the day before the Dudes. They are all a little more than 2 1/2. I wasn't sure how the class was going to go. They were so excited to get out and "bounce." The class went amazingly well. I was surprised. Carter only threw one temper tantrum. Last week was even better. Then today was the best it has been. The Dudes love it.
Today the kids all got to do a little "show" and show off the skills they have learned. At the end of the hour all the kids got ribbons and a chance to stand on the podium. It was a VERY. BIG. DEAL.
They had to have a picture with Miss Bailey

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

That's Gonna Hurt

HEY Y'ALL!!!! It's me again!! hahahahaha....life has a way of zipping by, doesn't it? Life has been going by at warp speed around here. I'm still working. I only regret it twice a week :( I would by lying if I said I didn't miss being at home. I miss the day to day stuff, and I hate paying a babysitter. It breaks my heart when one of the kids tell me they miss me, or they wish I didn't work. However, the extra income is nice. Seeing Mr. Mayer not as stressed about finances is nice, and I feel like I am contributing.
My main reason for getting a job remains. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. Considering my genetic makeup if that's all that I have, I'm okay with it. I was medicated for a long time. I stopped taking my medications two years ago and have been able to keep a handle on myself for a long time. However, I had a bad month in December. Besides the normal Christmas stress, my wheels were stolen, which added another…

Let Me Catch My Breathe....

Hey! Hey! Hey! My fitness tour is still going strong :) I am pretty confident I will be able to at least make it to vacation time doing free, or discounted classes around town. Then I can make my final decision on what I want to stick with. The last two weeks have taught me that my fitness level has gone way down....I am not as strong as I thought I was. Maybe gone down isn't the right word. Maybe, more like, I'm nuts and had a skewed perception of my fitness level....maybe I was never as fit as I thought I was??? All these classes are giving me a dose of reality.
This week I started off strong with CycleBar. Now. I LOVE spin classes. My friend, Jeff, started teaching spin a million years ago, and I took my first spin class with him in 2011. He has always been my favorite instructor and I compare every other class to him. Every one. So, on a scale of 1-Jeff how did I like Cycle Bar...I'll admit, it was at an 8 or 9. Maybe if the instructor and I were friends outside of cla…
