Not sure what to do with this hot mess yet.Tweet this!
…on the blog.
This weekend was a whirlwind for me. I started Saturday with yoga but then busted my balls for the rest of it.
Then there was Sunday. Omgoodness.
I woke up at 6:40 to get some work done before a light workout and teaching spin class. Then I played 9 holes of the most frustrating golf…in the rain! On the course I was called in to teach ANOTHER spin class. Thankfully, my church is super casual so I could attend as a sweaty mess. I really needed to feel that energy and realign my mind. Then, I raced home to wash up, go out, and play match-maker at dinner. What a day!
Today I have multiple meetings and then am going to teach 3, yes 3, spin classes tonight. I haven’t done that in 5 years! The only reason I ever did was due to the fact I was in tip top shape and spending the summer in the Hamptons with nothing to do. Today I just fell into it.
I’m excited to take on the cardio challenge honestly. I’ll bring bananas to fuel up between classes.
Now, I just have to get through my meetings and make a kick as mix.
Sorry to leave you here without some fitness tips. Tomorrow I’ll be back with some pretty interesting Prada news I learned last week.
Talk to you tomorrow!Tweet this!

They’re all terrible!
I’ve never been photogenic. For a while, I could strike a good pose to flatter my features.
Now, I’m just standing there saying “cheese” and hoping for the best. Obviously that’s not going so well.
Maybe I’ll do more video. Or call Julia. She always put me in my place….in front of the camera ;)Tweet this!

I can’t explain it….
It’s hotter than Hades outside; I’m sweating profusely (thankfully my head-to-toe Nike outfit shows no signs of it), and, since this is golf, of course I’m frustrated to the point of cursing because my swing is inconsistent.
And since this is golf, I’m loving every minute of it.
Just doesn’t make sense to me.
I’m calling this the “hooker” edition because most of my shots hook left.
When I set up to the ball, a million thoughts are going through my head. Golf is such a technical sport; there are so many details to remember. The only thing consistent in the whole process is the finish in which the ball goes left. Every time I change my grip and the position of the club, but ooooh, my body is too smart for that.
Anyway, this is my way of saying I’m still loving golf. I’ve played one full round (well, ALMOST) of 18 holes and looking forward to another soon. What I want most at this point is just to have a consistent swing that’s my own.
BTW, anyone watching the PGA Championship this weekend? Much more interesting now that I play. After only a day, you gotta feel for Tiger and Rory. Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with golf details.
Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!Tweet this!

Six months has passed. Where are you now? Where do you want to be? How do you want to be?
We ask ourselves these questions at the beginning of each year. I like to take on the same task, although not always easy, at the end of the 4th of July holiday before life starts spinning out of control again.Tweet this!
