Weekend Recap- Poker Run Plus Checking In On Those Goals

Happy Monday All!

It’s a hot one here in Iowa today and looks like that will be continuing through the week. No complaints from me though!

A started my weekend off right teaching a kickboxing class at Kosama on Friday night. Saturday morning it was back to 7 Flags and Kosama to witness a Kosama first….

A proposal!  Our GM, Kamy got engaged after Saturday morning circuit to her best friend : ). They met at Kosama so he thought they should get engaged there too! My favorite part was that he had to take off her weight lifting glove to put the ring on her finger. Congrats to the newly engaged couple!

That afternoon we reported back for a little poker run fun, a 17 mile bike ride with 5 pub stops to draw a card at each location and maybe have a little fun too. It was a beautiful day and so fun to hang out with some of my fellow Kosamies.

I think we will definitely have to do an event like this again next year! I loved getting to put the new bike to work and my friends were so helpful teaching me how to shift. My road bike is quite different from my mountain bike I was used to riding.

Sunday was dedicated to some much needed rest and relaxation as well as brunch with my Mom and sometime spent reading my book. I’ve almost finished The Cuckoo’s Calling.

Accountability Check In

In case you forgot I set these goals for 25.


I think if I had to give myself a grade overall so far it would be a C, maybe even a C-. Which is exactly why I’m checking in, so I can get myself back on track!

Incorporating 2 lifting days a week – I’m always getting one day a week in but I would like to get in a better leg day utilizing the bar for squats etc.

Blog at least 2x a week- I’m doing pretty good at this though I think my last few posts have been a little lack luster.

Attend Fitbloggin’ Conference- I’ve done some research on this, still no details as to where it will be held next year.

Get Certified- Decisions, decisions. I will put a deadline to have a decision on what certification to obtain first by Oct. 1. BOOM

Continue search for happy & balance – its a daily thing my friends!

Top secret – Ahhhh! I’m a nervous Nelly! I have something to do with this tomorrow, stay tuned. Prayers appreciated

How are you coming on your goals?

What did you do this weekend?


Weekend Recap

bikeI took the day off Friday and went bike shopping. Found this beauty and fell in love. She is a Bianchi which is an Italian bike and also happens to be the oldest bicycle company still in existence. That lovely blue is Bianchi’s team colors. Quite the upgrade from the mountain bike I was riding that I had received as a gift for my tenth birthday though about the same size, some things never change.

Saturday started off bright and early with Initial Assessments at Kosama for 100 new members! Always so exciting to meet new people ready to make a change for the healthier!

After assessments, fellow trainer and friend, Tiffany and I did the leg workout below. A step towards my goal. Now I just have to figure out when I’m going to get that arm day in!


I received a sample of Chocolate Cake Protizyme in the mail from Metabolic Nutrition and tried it after a bike ride on Saturday. It was delicious! Sunday, I stopped by the Vitamin Shoppe and picked up their Peanut Butter Cookie flavor to try. I’m loving it, and it is gluten free!
