Apparently bossing people around and making a “party” out of any gathering of people, runs in my blood. So, of course, the minute I got to this 27 Week Physical Fitness Challenge, I started getting agitated about how they were missing out on a lot of opportunities to make it more fun!
By week, TWO, I just had to say something, and so I suggested to the owner that somebody should be taking “before” and “after” shots and talking to the participants about why they were in the class, their goals, and in general chart their success. I told him that he could use it to inspire future participants, as proof that his program worked, and as a gift to his students for their hard work.
You already know what happened next.
So now I am taking everyone’s before, during and after shots, doing the interviews and putting it all together in a fabulous eBook. Don’t roll your eyes, I love this stuff! I am so excited to interview these people… find out their stories and write the bio with their pics. You should have seen it today when I broke out the Nikon and started snappin’. People were so happy to have their progress documented. Too cool.
How was the class you ask? Well, I can’t lie… it was tough finding enough steam to show up. It’s been a long week, it’s raining, and I have a lot of other things that I’d rather be doing… but if I can measure success by the amount of sweat pouring off my face and how great it felt when I held a plank for 30 seconds X2 or did 60 mule kicks each leg… then it was pretty damn good!
Will I ever slow down you ask? You know me and my philosophy, if you don’t use it, you lose it baby, and that goes for your body and your mind! Living a Red Shoe Life means you keep plugging away, growing, learning, doing, plotting, trying new things and making sure you are living every single day to it’s fullest. I plan to keep going at full speed until they find me one day on the floor of the Good Will…. with a margarita in my hand 🙂 RIP Margarite. I will miss you.
