What I’ve Been Up To Wednesday


A blog post.

How does it happen that I have allll this stuff to write about but I just can’t find time to sit down and actually put it into a post!?  It’s summer and we’ve been doing all kinds of fun things and I even went out of town for a weekend for an awesome event and haven’t even been able to share it yet!  I guess I can consider it a good thing that I have a lot of things going on that keep me busy but, really, just an hour a day for blogging would be great!  Oh well.  I’m here now and I’ll share some quick recaps of what’s been going on around here!

**I have been team teaching with my Jazzercise bestie…


My fellow instructor, Darlene, and I have gotten pretty close over the years.  She became an instructor shortly after I did and we tend to teach most of the night classes at our center.  Out of constantly running into each other and sharing/laughing/griping/venting to each other on our way in and out, we’ve become really good friends!  Every few weeks, we teach a team class together on the weekend…the students really love it and we have a blast together!  I call it the “Kelly and Darlene Show” because it really is like a comedy show with us both up on stage together!  Oh, and we usually try to wear matching outfits.

**I’ve been trying like mad to improve my golf game…


Golf is hard.  Like, really hard.  I am improving but I’m far from good.  Every shot requires deep thought, perfect technique, and stress.  I just try to get up and hit the ball without thinking about it…but then I start thinking too much about not thinking about it.  I know, right!?  I love it, though, and I am on a mission to be good!

**We moved our dermatology practice to a new office…


For the last two years, we have shared an office space with another doctor.  This past Monday, we saw patients in our new office for the first time.  It was newly built and was so fresh and clean (cue the Outkast singing, “..so fresh and so clean, clean…”)!  It was a lot of work but it is finally done and we couldn’t be more excited.  And, yes, sometimes we wear mustaches to amuse ourselves.  I have the best coworkers!

**We had our foster pup, Roxie, back with us…


If you remember, we found Roxie running along the road a couple of months ago.  We ended up finding a home for her with a friend of ours but, unfortunately, after trying to make it work for awhile, she had to contact us and let us know that she would have to give Roxie back.  Her dog, Riley, would not warm up to her and was showing aggression toward the puppy.  So, as any good foster pup parents would do, we took her back.  We had her for two days before sending her for a sleepover with our neighbors to see how their dogs would warm up to her.  The verdict??  Their pups loved her and now she has a new home just down the street from us.  There was a second (just a fleeting second) that we actually considered keeping her for ourselves.

**I’ve been eating my weight in soft-serve…


Seriously.  It’s summer.  What else are you supposed to do!?

**We celebrated a wedding and Fourth of July…


My friend from high school, Nicole, got married on July 4th.  A wedding on a Friday morning + a holiday made for a unique experience but fun!  Nicole’s dad passed away last September and he absolutely loved holidays…one of his favorites being the 4th of July.  She decided that having her wedding on one of his favorite days was a great way to honor him…and it was!  It was a beautiful day and one that we will never forget!  I know her dad with there to look down on her and share in her celebration.

**I spent a weekend in Washington D.C. for a Jazzercise event…


This note deserves it’s own post, which is coming….I promise!  Every year, Jazzercise throws a big even during which there is a chance to learn new routines, participate in a routine taping, and just get together to celebrate with other instructors and students and share the fitness program that we love!  Each year, they hold it somewhere different and, this year, it was in D.C.  Since we are only about four hours away, myself, Darlene, another instructor, Natalie, and one of our students, Mara, attended.  We had a blast!!!  I will share all the details in post coming soon!


All in all, it’s been a pretty great summer, so far.  Can you believe that it’s practically half over!?  I feel like it really hasn’t even started!


Something to share:  If you are a fitness instructor, do you enjoy team teaching?  Have you gone on a vacation this summer?  Do you like soft-serve?
