Awesome Day Two: Pump it Up!


So there is this class... Ive had a bit of a workout crush on it for a while now. But its been way to intimidating for me to just walst upto and introduce myself. It happens right before one of my regular classes and every time I walk in I see a huge group of people sweating and smiling and lugging barbells and weights back to the corner. They all look so happy and healthy and freshly asskicked. Its a beautiful sight. 

Rewind: I have only been going to the gym for a couple months now and tend to stick to cardio type workouts and a couple core classes, etc. I have never really lifted weights, ever! Im more of the tiny limber lets do YOGA variety! But oh how Ive lusted over those heavy stop sign shaped hunks of magic that everyone is lifting and swinging about. Its like a club that Im just not strong enough to get into, but you cant get stronger with out being in it! Sick joke!

So yesterday, day two, I decided to just GO FOR IT!!! I picked up a number at the front desk and went to the elliptical and did 3 and a half miles before heading over for my asskicking. It was wonderful! It was hard, yes, but it felt great. I only had to moderate a few things, granted I went a little light on the weights as a first timer, but I definitely held my own. I felt so dang AWESOME afterwards! Mission BODYPUMP was a success! 

Im loving my awesomeness right now. Im really trying to get out of my comfort zone with my awesome adventures this time around. Yesterday was just that! I cant wait for the next one!!!

How is your AWESOME going?

Awesome Day One: A Dyl-icious Motorcyle Ride!


Day one of awesome was a little slow starting. But after work I was off to an awesome BBQ. Good friends, great food and apparently there was some awesome game on:) I had an awesome time hanging out with old friends and getting to know new ones. Like Kate! There is nothing more awesome that just clicking with someone that is genuinely awesome. 

Just when I thought the night couldnt get more awesome, Dylan took me for a ride on his motorcycle. It was only my second time on one ever! The first was also with Dyl in Aspen on Independence Pass! So awesome! Last nights ride was super awesome! So awesome that my teeth hurt from getting so cold since I was smiling so big! AWESOME!

30 Days of Awesome!

Its that time again! Time to get awesome! 

Whats this all about you ask? Well here it is straight from the official website 

30 days of awesome was started way back in 2009, when two girls, Jess and LB, set off on a summer adventure to show up any adventure before them: They planned to do awesome things every day for a whole month. From mini golf to mega drunk, they used their awesomeness to fight a war against heat and work and boredom. They won.
The following year, they invited two more girls to join their league, Nicole and Tawnya, who were up to the challenge and performed valiantly. Each girl with her own style and strength, they took on the challenge bravely and came our winners of awesome.
Last year four more were added to the mix: AmandaHeather, and Angeli, and Kait. And thus, the Awesome Crew was created.
The rules of 30 Days are simple enough to understand, but are quite an undertaking to follow. Each participant must not only do something totally AWESOME, but it must be different every day and must be blogged about. It’s not a contest, but a chance to look at life in a positive, fun, and awesome way.
We will face hardships and hangovers, lack motivation and inspiration. But in the end it will all pay off, because even though we may run our credit cards dry, being awesome is priceless.
So follow us girls on this blog and get inspired. Because really, you can be awesome this too!
A few years ago I did my first 30 days of awesome. It was so awesome! You can look back on it here! Follow along for all my upcoming awesomeness! Or join in!

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
