GOOD morning!! It is FRIDAY
(In case you didn’t realize it.)
This has been one crrraazzzzyyy week (have you tried the arms workout yet?!), but because I love everything I do, it was an amazing week as well. I feel very blessed!
I thought I’d make today fun by asking and answering 6 questions I’ve gotten recently and/or made up. You’re welcome.
1. Question: How do you almost have a heart attack at your computer this week?
You sign up for a HALF IRONMAN.
For real. I DID it. I am registered for the August 25th, 2012 Half Ironman Triathlon Event. And I might’ve almost shaken right out of my seat as I clicked the submit button…..
This is going to be vvveeerrryyy innntteeerressstting.
2. Question: What are the 6 great enemies of greatness and happiness?
Answer: Read THIS ARTICLE NOW and then you’ll know. (I am SO inspired! Loved it.) Seriously. Once you’re done here, READ IT. (It takes maybe 3 minutes to read but it will tug at your heart in a reaaaalllllyyyy good way.)
3. Question: What has Annette been eating a lot of lately?
Answer: Her chocolate whey protein powder. Sweet potatoes. Kale. Sunbutter. Dark chocolate chips. Cottage cheese. Salted sunflower seeds. Black beans. Eggs. Blue cheese. Red bell peppers. Chocolate milk. (Not necessarily together…..)
Wow. Who is that weirdo anyways?! Hah.
4. Question: How many fitness classes can Annette teach (and participate in) in one day?
Answer: So far I’ve only ever taught 4 in one day, but let’s be real, that is NOT sustainable (and don’t worry, I don’t do that on a regular basis).
And yesterday, I taught 2 BodyPUMP classes and 1 Zumba class and realized….I think 3 is now my limit. That was TOUGH.
Let’s just say we’re lucky I made it home awake.
But then this happened:
I think the extra hard part about it was that just 2 days before I taught back-to-back classes as well (BodyPUMP and then Zumba). So my body is now t.i.r.e.d. (I am currently sleeping in as we ‘speak.’)
An addendum to all that though is this : I sleep A LOT, I eat lots of whole foods, I drink tons of water, and I take lots of showers. All these things help me keep my sanity and energy levels high to be able to bust out those classes.
So I guess if you’re looking to teach a bunch of classes, make sure your body AND your mind is up to it.
5. Question: How do you realize the potential that is within you?
Answer: You take a leap of faith in that direction. You believe. And eventually you’ll begin to realize that the beauty is on the other side–right outside where you’re comfortable. That is where potential, greatness, and unbelievable happiness lies! I promise.
I’ve had way too many ‘tough’ experiences in my life that have proven to me that if I can view them as good things, things for me to grow & learn from, I can be a MUCH better version of myself than I ever could’ve believed.
6. Question: What are some hobbies you wish you had a desire to be good at, or even attempt to do?
Answer: I wish I could be good at thrifting, DIY projects, sewing, or playing the piano. I am only very mediocre at some of those, and a complete failure at the rest of them.
Let’s just say I am not the most creative or useful with my hands (look at the above list, both of those are needed.) I guess I’ll have to rely on Pinterest to guide me through some dumbed down projects.
When I have time, of course.
When I have time…..
Don’t you love that excuse?!
I do too.
Have a GREAT Friday!
P.s. Just think, you don’t have to deal with the anxious feelings that I’ll be experiencing these next 3 months…. Any words of hope would be awesome. Just sayin’
What are some of YOUR answers to 1 of these questions?? What exciting thing happened to YOU this weekend?? Any cool hobbies YOU have?? Weekend plans??
