It's been almost 2 months since I stepped down from taking people through workouts, to taking myself through workouts! I seriously can't believe it!

🤸🏽‍♂️ August 24th marked my last day of teaching group ex.

Without skipping a beat we took off within a couple of days to Florida and St. Croix for a 2 week vacation. It really was JUST what I needed to come back to ME and to who I am...really, at the core!

😬 When I returned Monday to "reality" I was nervous for what was to come. Sure enough, at 11:00 am, I was hustling around preparing to teach class...and then it hit me. Today was the first day back of....NOT teaching! I was almost in shock. For a brief moment, I actually didn't know what to do, or how to act.

😱 So, I sat with a myriad of emotions! I had a mixture of pure joy, fear, sadness, jubilation and confusion come to my psyche all at once. After a hot minute....of the roller coaster of feelings, I came to realize that it was the first time in 32 years that I got to do what I wanted to do for a workout JUST for me!!

So. I. did. my. own. workout. It was freeing, yet interesting. I noticed I was conflicted. I had to ask...what is in MY best interest? I was so used to thinking about what was in the best interest of the class, that I never considered what was in MY best interest...

Now, every workout, I check in with ME. If I don't feel like lifting weights, I play pickleball. If I don't feel like playing pickleball, I hike. Some days I don't feel like doing ANYTHING so I rest! I really do what I want to do for the FIRST time in FOREVER and I LOVE it.


Transitions can be trying! But when we check in with our most authentic self (without judgment) and ASK: What's in my highest and best interest? The answer will always come. We just need to be patient and LISTEN!

So, here's to all the transitions in life!




So glad to hear you’re enjoying your new routine! I sure do miss seeing you ❤️❤️
