Happy February everyone!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful winter, and that all is well with you.
I’ve got a few new blog posts up on my Ananda Yoga & Fitness website. The latest post is our Growing in February goals. It’s never too late to join in and #GrowIn2017!!
I also have some new spin ride profiles! Check out the Valentine’s Day ride! It’s a love hate kinda ride. 😉
If you are looking for a good read, check out Rare Objects by Kathleen Tessaro. I absolutely loved this book and the story line!
I also recently read A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. What an amazing book from a first time author. Definitely read it. You’ll find yourself laughing and tearing up during this fast read. My favorite character was the cat. You’ll understand once you start reading.
I wanted to thank everyone for their emails, comments, prayers, and positive thoughts for Lady and her surgery. It really meant so much to us! Lady is currently doing well, and recovering from her surgery. Each day she is getting more of her “pep” back, because each day Lady is getting back to being bossier and bossier.
Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope your new year is starting out with smiles and fun! My new year has started out with some fun new beginnings! I’m now teaching spinning at SOS Image in Minot! What happened at the YMCA got around Minot in less than an hour after it happened. I had several job offers from other gyms before the day was out. All of them were amazing offers, and I was beyond flattered to know I was a valued instructor.
Sara, owner, at SOS Image called me and asked if I would like to come to her gym and start a spinning program. It was like one door closed for me and a whole entire garage door opened! I couldn’t be more thankful. Within the week Sara had ordered 11 bikes, and I was back to teaching spin in December! I have 6 classes each week with 1 Saturday class each month. We will be adding more spin classes on as we add on more instructors. For now, check out our monthly schedule here.
We are riding on the Spinner Pro+ bikes. We are also using the Star Trac group cycle computers.
I’m loving my new adventure at SOS Image! Some of my amazing friends came over to take my classes at SOS and I have a new set of regulars that are already hooked on spinning and the awesome workout you get!
Now for a new spin ride for y’all!
I’m heading to Florida for the weekend to work on more aerial yoga training at CircuSoul! I already have one certification in aerial yoga, but I want a full 200 RYT Yoga Alliance approved aerial yoga certificate. Kerry at Circusoul has put an amazing 200 hour aerial program together. I got to know Kerry over 2 years ago when I first really got into aerial yoga, and I finally have the excuse/chance to train with him!
Had to share that little quote with ya. I’m thinking I need this quote on a workout tank for the gym. I know it would make everyone laugh.
Thought I would share the outcome of yesterdays ravioli lasagna with ya. It was delish! This recipe is a definite in the “make-again” department. Plus it was fast and easy to put together. I’m thinking about switching out the chicken sausage next time with garlic roasted chicken breasts that I can shred up. Definitely make this recipe. It is perfect for those days when you don’t want to come home and have to spend a ton of time cooking in the kitchen.
Well, it is that time of year again. Time to break out the holiday music and do our annual Christmas Ride for my Spinning classes. I always ask everyone what Christmas music they want, and this year there is a Bieber song that was requested. So, for all you Bieber fans out there you can get your fix with this ride. However, if you are like me and avoid his music…Pop in those earplugs for 4 minutes and 43 seconds. 🙂
I have all the door prizes set to go for the lucky riders who come for the holiday rides! I think I have about 35 door prizes or more, and they are all totally awesome!! I also have glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces for everyone too!
Well, winter is here. Thankfully we have a few days of temps in the 50s coming our way soon, so I won’t totally flip out about the snow on the ground this morning. As you can see in the picture above, I need more time to get all my EarthBoxes and flower pots cleaned out and put away for winter. Not to mention all the deck furniture. I just need mother nature to give me one good day of sunny nice weather.
In the meantime, I’m keeping warm making my Crock Pot Loaded Potato Soup and Funeral Sandwiches (recipe to come soon!) for our company that is in town visiting and hunting.
Happy Valentines Day everyone! Don’t you love the quote above. It came from Body Building’s website. I think it sums up how I feel about Valentine’s day and health. Sometimes you just have to indulge and have fun!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and feeling loved. I’ll be sharing my love with others while teaching my Spinning classes today and making special goodies for my husband and son. Our playlist for Spinning today (see below) has songs about love and about how love sucks. I figured I would make everyone happy this way.

It seems that no matter what some of us will have a depressing Valentines Day, while others are having the most romantic day ever. I hope you fall into the most romantic day ever category. Sadly, these days I find it romantic if my husband unloads the dishwasher.
What is the most romantic Valentines Day you have ever had?
I found this little saying on Pinterest a few months ago, and I had to share it with you. I know it is a bit crude, but it is just too funny not to share. Plus it is very true.
Since my mind is in the gutter today, I might as well go all the way and just stick with butts. When I think of a body part to go along with Valentine’s Day I think of butts. Don’t ask me why, I just do. Chalk it up to me living in North Dakota for a few years. It really is getting to me. Therefore, today’s workout is all about getting that tight bootie!
Here is a butt workout that will help you get that rock solid and round bootie! Remember to stretch when you are done!
