Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode #89
Super-Secret Project with a Fellow Margo, The Joys of “Cranky Fitness” and
My Super Brooklyn Postcard Extravaganza!
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
I am filled with good news today and want to shout it out from the rooftops but alas, I must keep it under wraps for another week or so. (Ooh—how can I keep this to myself? I am dying to talk about it!) Hang on impatient friends and family—there is a new project I am working on with my fellow Margo of She’s Nacho Mama Podcastand we are both crossing our fingers and sending good Juju out to the world that it will be something that lots of folks will enjoy. Not just our usual yoga, Zumba, spinning, workout and “playout” crew but also those who love entertainment.
Entertainment? What kind of entertainment Margo?
I have already said too much! Wait right here until next my next Vlog post (my 90th!) next week to get all the details. (Dying to say something but must restrain myself…)
In the meantime I want to introduce you to a new friend of mine—Jan from Cranky Fitness. Jan used to be an attorney and family therapist but now makes her bones as a life & wellness coach (as well as an ACE-certified wellness coach) and Blogger whose motto is “Healthy Living is a Pain in the Ass!” (What is not to love about this woman?) Cranky Fitness is an excellent resource on all kinds of health, fitness & nutrition topics including a few of my favorites here:
- A Freaky but Delicious Yoga Alternative for people who don’t do yoga. (This one cracked me up!)
- Does Diet Soda cause weight gain? A review of some recent research; especially helpful if you’re someone who still drinks ’em and you want to feel less crappy about it.
- Walking Meditation Tips: A helpful alternative for people who can’t seem to sit still for conventional meditation.
Jan also won the bike seat from Terry Bikes (and me!) at Fitbloggin this year. Be sure to check her out!
And now for my “Super Brooklyn Postcard Extravaganza!”
Recently I participated with a group of fellow Bloggers to send postcards to one another as encouragement and to say “hello” to people we don’t get to see in person very often. This idea had me thinking about all of the times when my students and social media followers take the time out of their busy days to tell me that I make them smile. I get so bogged down with all of my projects and responsibilities that it frankly makes me a “cranky” mess at times. (I know—shocking news, right?)
On Sundays I teach three back to back classes (spin/spin/core) and I have to admit there are times when I say to myself “Screw it—it’s Sunday and I am working again? Grrr!” (Especially on a beautiful morning when I would rather be out on my bike—double grr!)
However every week I still keep going and get such a happy buzz from helping folks end their weekend on a healthy note.
Today one of my favorites said to me that she loves my 10:30 am core class so much she schedules the weekend around it. “My kids know not to make plans with me until after 11:30 when you are done.”
This made me so happy that I decided to send my own encouragement out to those in the world who could use it. Are you in the need of a little postcard cheer? Then be sure to post in the comments below and send me a note on Twitter (@brooklynfitchik) and I will personally send you a postcard from my lovely Brooklyn. Really!
Here are more details!
I will collect names & addresses until midnight, Sunday, July 27th (eastern time.) Hope you all have an amazing week and I can NOT wait to tell you my BIG news!
Until next time…
