Even fitness instructors fall off the food wagon
I’m still fairly new at teaching Aerobics. But Since I started I teach 7 classes and take other instructors classes (to learn and excel) and I play on Two Adult league soccer Teams!
I’m sure you can understand that my Metabolism has Prolly sped up Which means I’m a little ( A LOT) more hungry lately!!!!
And since it’s summer my 2 boys (ages 3&5) are home from school - no preschool or pre K.
It is just sooo easy to take them to Burger King or stop at Sonic after a class- And let them EAT and PLAY (kills two birds with one stone) ALAS I’m a Slave for Cheeseburgers
So this meant That i have been eating Cheeseburgers up the “HEEZEY” Which Meant that i gained a good 7lbs since SUMMER STARTED!!!! ( our summer started May 26th So I’m sure you can imagine my shock when i stepped on the Scale and the little arrow SUNK DOWN.
So I Slowly moved the little arrow to the right… a little more… a lil more …. AND BINGO!!! i had gained 9 lbs!!! this cant be right so i took my tennis shoes off and stepped back on and thankfully moved the lil arrow to the LEFT! (I ONLY GAINED 7 LBS AND I’M STICKIN TO IT- I DON’T CARE WHAT ANY OF YOU SAY!!!! I ALSO PEE BEFORE I WEIGH MYSELF TO LOSE 1 LB —- Totally kidding about that “peeing part” by the way)
Well needless to say I had to buckle down on this fast food deal!!! No more for my kids For awhile!! and Thankfully my body DOES NOT WANT cheeseburgers, my body has been Craving Salads and Fruits etc.
It’s nice to be in tune with your body- Thank goodness my body tells me what I need rather than my eye’s ( as I spy at the leftover meat loaf which is delish but now sounds Bleh) but just after 9 days of NOT eating cheeseburgers I’ve already lost 3 lbs so GREAT!!!!
anyway that’s my boobin for the day
OMG YUMMMMMMMY YUMMMMY YUMMY i’ve got love in my tummy and I feel like F*ckin YOU!!! LOL
some parents don’t like it but i do…
Most parents hate when their kids jump on the furniture. I like that my kids do. I used to do the same thing. My Brother, Sister and I would flip off the couches and jump and climb and play on everything.
Last night while my boys were Tumbling all over the living room, i decided to join them.
Man that’s a Great Workout!!! And Crap, i am not a kid anymore!!!! My kids are like Mini little Parkour animals!!!! I WISH I had the strength do Monkey around like that!!!! I mean that takes STRENGTH!!! I’m gonna try and make sure my kids keep “monkeying around” like that. Hopefully they will thank me when they are 30yrs old.
OMG has anyone ever had “gas” while doing yoga or pilates? It just happend to me!!!! it was NOT COOL!!! my stomach was brbling and it was sooo hard holding it in!!!! Oy Vey.
SO F*@$ING annoyed right now!!!
So i’ve been teaching yoga at a college for about a month. Not as a college class for credit; just to provide a fitness class for whoever wants to participate. And it is strictly just aerobics. I’m not like the Gym teacher or a professor or coach.
Anyway so i’ve been filling out paper work and turning in paper work for as long as i’ve been working there!!!!! HOLY SHIT!!!! most Gym employers would be satisfied with your certifications, CPR cert., Resume, and letters of recommendation possible back round check etc. The basic stuff.
But, here they need my high school transcripts????? WHY THE HELL DO THEY NEED MY HIGHS CHOOL TRANSCRIPTS!!!! And if that wasn’t enough, My FAXED copy that i brought wasn’t good enough!!! I HAVE TO GET “CERTIFIED” COPIES of them with a SEAL.
And my military I.D card doesn’t provide a sufficient enough proof of my social security #, and my “emailed” Letters of Recommendations (which I had to provide 3) weren’t “signed” ( and 2 of the people that emailed them to me moved out of state 2 weeks ago)
And I had to watch a stupid movie on ‘Chemicals’ in the Work place- BECAUSE I USE SO MANY CHEMICALS TEACHING YOGA. It wasn’t a movie about sexual harassment or Drug usage type stuff but, on Hazardous Chemicals.
And I need to take an Ethics class (which provides me with college credit which is a plus i guess).
WHAT ELSE DO THEY WANT FROM ME??? I’m half expecting them to tell me to provide a full report from my Gynecologist!!!!
The Ironic part is- they haven’t asked me to show them proof of my certifications or my CPR card ( which is usually the staple to provide at any gym)
Is this obnoxious torture worth 25.00 per class?
this is such a peaceful time of morning I LOVE IT!!!
Apr 24 Reblogged
Your blog is sooo cute. I love it! I recently lost 45 lbs (within the last year) and then i put 20 back on due to what i want to call “winter weight” (and I am a fitness instructor!!!!!!!!!!!!-NObody is perfect) I was 180lbs (as of FEB last year) and am a short 5ft 2.5 in. when winter came it was too cold to run and i can’t run on treadmills (A.D.D much???) and the lbs came on with my obsessive Wine habit lol. Thankfully its getting warm and i’ve lost 5 of those 20 lbs. Anyway blogs and people like you, keep people like me going (even though i am a fitness instructor we ALL need motivation)

Total Lost: -20.6 lbs
Life lesson of the week: I had convinced myself that I gained this week. But apparently even when you indulge one day — a few glasses of wine, cinnamon-sugar Belgian waffles, double cheeseburgers — as long as you pick yourself up and keep going forward, it will be okay. You can’t derail a lifestyle, only a diet.
I got back @ the telemarketer
I am NOW getting calls from Telemarketers on my CELL phone. So today @ work I called them back and asked them if they were interested in buying “skin care” products. They were not amused ha ha ha
kind of random but, my lil doggie……
My lil Lola is Neutered/spayed ?? (whateve you call it)… but she looks like the neighborhood whooooore. Can dogs get STD’s? and can they get them even if they are spayed/neutered? HMMMMMMM interesting thought!!!!! ( guess i’m jus not all that edumatcated )
