Weekly Wins {Grasping at Straws}

My word, what a week. Coming back from a fabulous ten day trip  in the warm west, right into the cold freezing snow of the East, coupled with long days of training, teaching and programming, topped off with some bummer news midweek made for just a week I'd rather not do again.

I miss my family. I miss my niece. I miss the warm weather.

I'm beyond bummed I missed out on a goal I set for myself.

My body is all over the place because of food and drink choices the past two weeks.

But, still we look at the good. The small little pieces of the week worth celebrating. They get a shout out because they play JUST as big of a role in my life as the defeats and bummers.

... Can't talk about the week without mentioning THE BIRTHDAY! Thank you all for your sweet wishes, they meant so much to me. 35 is shaping up to be a wonderful year because I feel more confident, at peace with who I am and stronger than ever. Having family and friends think about me truly made my week.

... I had a pretty big goof up during my BODYPUMP class on Tuesday but the class just rolled with it. Afterwards I spoke with a couple who I adore and when I laughed at my ooops the woman said "even with mistakes, you're still the best instructor here". Talk about a WOW moment.

... Sportyspice texted the family that lil bean slept for FOUR hours in a row the past two nights, woop!

... Wednesday I posted about not making the team and the responses was overwhelming. I had debated even saying anything, since it was still raw and devastating, but I'm so glad I did. The public pump ups were amazing, the private DMs were inspiring and the settling of peace of mind did wonders for my emotions. THANK YOU for supporting me.

... After a SPRINT class on Wednesday, a member and I walked out to our cars together where we chatted for ten minutes. We spoke about life, teaching, future and it was just a GREAT moment of getting to know another human being. Someone who is similar to me, despite are big age difference. Grateful to daily impact people's lives and meet new personalities.

... Yesterday was my last day of physical therapy, so now I do the work on my own.

Wishing you and yours a fabulous weekend, hoping you're somewhere WARM!
