Dance Party!

Coming full circle... I truly love full circle moments. And last night was a big one for me. In February 2017, when I was bedridden after my neck and right hip surgery, I made two big goals for after recovery. As many of you know, goal #1 was a trip to Portugal and Morocco. I completed …

Spin!

Ok so here's my update on the past few weeks of taking spin classes. I LOVE IT! I went to Rushcycle Encinitas and there seems to be such a community/family feel at this studio. All the classes and teachers were awesome. I have felt my body changing and my cardio improving. I had to modify …

I have decided to trial different types of workout gyms and studios around me. I want to see what I can tolerate, what feels good for this new body of mine and what will give me the best results. I am starting with spin and orange theory, then will try barre and pilates, maybe yoga …

A Gung-ho Summer

Ever since getting back from my road trip, I have been so exhausted. My body did better than expected for sleeping on an air mattress for a week and with the long drives, but man, it all wiped me out. I was talking about this with my physical therapist. I'm kind of surprised that the …
