"Enjoying where you are, on the way to where you're going."

"Monday Monday, so good to me,
 Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
 Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
 That Monday evening you would still be here with me." --Mamas and Papas

Fitness. It is the number one goal. 20 lbs lost in 9 weeks is the mantra.

I have begun teaching group fitness classes at a local gym. It is something that I have done in the past, but not for a very, very long time. After running in the New Year's Eve Resolution 5K and signing up for another 5K in early Feb, I thought I would maximize on the momentum and teach a group fitness class.

Mondays and Wednesdays I teach two- 1 hour long classes. Last week was the first week. I sure was sore on Friday. Today, Monday, I feel fantastic! Ready to give it another go this evening. Plus we have added 2 more classes this week for a total of 4! Educators and students from the local high school were interested in that 4pm time slot. It should be a lot of fun!!

 I'm still applying, and interviewing, for what has been termed by those nearest and dear: "Real jobs".  My background is in higher education. I've been an adjunct professor, worked within student affairs, and as an academic adviser. However, I sure am enjoying where I am, on the way to where I'm going.

Blessings, on a Terrific Monday! Here's to the start of a fantastic work week.


  1. Your post reminds me of a saying I heard a few years back: Be happy with what you have while going after what you want.

    Contentment and aspirations are kind of a balancing act, aren't they? Good luck with your interviews and have fun teaching your fitness classes.

  2. Contentment and aspirations are a balancing act- especially when we are trying too hard I think.

    It's sort of like throwing our arms and legs around while trying to swim. It takes so much energy out of us, when all we really needed to do was lay back, trust and float. Resting (trusting) there will be plenty of energy left when the right thing does come along.
