Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes: Cell Phone Scofflaws and Latest FBG Features 12

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes May-ish 2016

A Year Later After Dad

Cell Phone Rudeness

Fit Bottomed Girls Latest Hits

 

 brooklynfitnesschickBIKE_0701

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Um, Where Did the Month Go?

I know I say this every few weeks but wow, where on earth does the time go? It’s been almost 6 weeks since I put down some news and notes on this here Blog. Why so long?

Yes, I have been busy which is a good thing. But I realized that on May 16th it was the first anniversary after losing Dad.

It’s been a tough year for sure and we all miss him terribly. I am still wondering if this is a horrible dream sometimes.

However, I have been lucky to have some of the greatest group of friends who have given me love and support at this difficult time. All I can say to them is “thank you.” And I hope any of you reading this post are as lucky as I am to have the support.

If you are ever unsure on what to say when someone experiences a loss and figure it is best to not say anything at all (in order to avoid saying the “wrong” thing)—let me just tell you one thing. All you ever have to say is “I am sorry for your loss.” Trust me—it does the job fine.

My family is in all kinds of states right now as to how they are handling the news one year later. Mom has decided to go a dream vacation to France and I couldn’t be happier for her. (Wish I could have tagged along, but oh well.)

Anyway—I had other things happen this past month so let us get to it, shall we?

Cell Phone Abusers

Do any of you have problems with students using cell phones in class? I feel as if it gets worse every year and I am not sure how to handle it any more. We have signs all over the place and I make an announcement at the beginning of class and yet I still get the occasional mobile phone scofflaw.  How do you all handle this or how does your gym handle this if you are not an instructor?

Fit Bottomed Girls Hits:

As some of you know—I am a NYC contributor for the popular fitness Blog Fit Bottomed Girls and this month I have had some articles featured there including:

  • An awesome Tabata workout from Nikki Metzger, Women’s Health Magazine Next Fitness Star who gave me her favorite kick-butt routine.
  • I was lucky enough to meet two Olympians who will compete at the Summer Olympics—Gabby Douglas and Dana Vollmer! I wrote this piece for Fit Bottomed Mamas and each brought their moms to talk about how their maternal guidance helped them to become ace competitors. Both were just about as nice as you can imagine.

Next month I will post yet another interview I recently had with an Olympian! (Hint—she plays soccer.)

Whew–that’s it for me today!  I will be back soon with magazine reviews, playlists, reviews and so much more. Happy soon-to-be Summer everyone!

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes: Getting More “Zen” in My Life, AFFA Certs and Podcast News 13

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes April 2016

Gaining More Zen In My Life, Looking for AFAA Certs, Fit Bottomed Girls Articles, and “Book Vs. Movie” Rocking the iTunes the Charts

Look at Us! Top 300 out of many, many thousands!

Look at Us! Top 300 out of many, many thousands!

                                                                                       

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

A Busy Margo is an Unwell Margo:    

I hate people who complain how busy they are. It’s a major pet peeve of mine.  Like, “please feel sorry/be jealous about how much I have going on in my life.” It’s obnoxious and not helpful at all.

Of course, life can get really complicated at times and say during tax season you will be super-pressed for time getting your forms and receipts together. Or during the holidays getting your gifts ready and prepping for travel with the family will leave you feeling stressed. But people who constantly humble/brag how busy they are make me want to scream. (Does anyone else remember the Michael Jackson/Janet Jackson song of that name?)

Well, lately I have been struggling with being overscheduled and having too many things due at once. I try to be cheerful about it when I describe my days/weekends to people but lately I have been finding it very hard to relax in the evening. I will start pacing my apartment when my work day is done (I work mostly from home) and if the weather is decent I will run an errand to get some air. Most mornings I teach fitness so I don’t need an extra workout.

Then a friend recommended I try meditation which has been a bugaboo for me for many, many years. I have an “unquiet” mind that struggles to find focus and frankly I am getting sick of it. I want to learn to meditate and hopefully I will learn to relax and take better care of my mental health.

Soooo, I am pleased to announce that I am going to be making monthly installments to a new site called Fit Bottomed Zen where I will discuss the latest in mediation trends and will give updates on my progress. Wish me luck and if you have any advice for how I can get more “Zen” in my life, please leave tips/suggestions below.

Anyhoo, back to my life the past few weeks…

AFAA credits:

Are any of you fitness instructors? Do you have the same struggle as me to get in your credits every two years to keep your certification? Mine just expired and I now have to fit in so many online classes to get my credits in. Are there any courses you recommend I take? I was thinking pre-natal and post-menopausal women would be good for my group fitness certification (taking care of different generations of women!)

Have YOU taken any classes from AFAA or IDEA lately that you think was extra cool/helpful—please let me know! I am struggling to fit it into my busy schedule! (Hardy Har Har)

Fit Bottomed Girls Hits:

As some of you know—I am a NYC contributor for the popular fitness Blog Fit Bottomed Girls and this month I have had some articles featured there including:

Book Vs Movie Podcast News:

Margo Porras of She’s Nacho Mama’s Blog and I co-host the “Book Vs. Movie” podcast (that you can subscribe to via iTunes at this link) and after 15 months worth of shows and struggling to find our way in a male-dominated world. Well guess what—we are in the top 300 podcast for TV & Movies!!! (Out of a hundred thousand if that gives you any perspective.) We are very excited about this milestone and we are also looking for suggestions for book/movie adaptations. So if you have any suggestions—please let me know in the comments below or email us at bookversusmoviepodcast@gmail.com

Whew–that’s it for me today!  I will be back soon with magazine reviews, playlists, reviews and so much more. Happy Spring Everyone!
