Really? What is going on? Snow, rain, sunshine, drizzle, wind, blizzard. Bright, dull. Hot, cold. This weather is freakish but you know what? Despite four seasons in one day my loyal class members are always there. It makes me smile from inside.
Would love a bit of consistency though. Especially as Spring is such an exciting time. New beginings.
March, in particular, has been such a busy month for me. Events, classes, birthdays, detox planning, wedding planning. Some days I have no idea where I am or where the time goes.
I do forget sometimes that I live in such a vibrant city. I need to get out more. The wheel is here at the moment and we have a new ultra-cool shopping centre just opened. I hope the wheel hasn’t gone by the time I venture in to the city.
So many people come up north for weekends, shopping and nights out and its right here on my doorstep and I don’t take full advantage. Basically, what I’m trying to say is Watch out Leeds I’m coming!!! My new goal is to take full advantage.
This weekend at IFS I am meeting up with my Bessie friend and chief bridesmaid, I am so excited to be going over wedding bits and bobs. I am also very lucky to have a wedding planner, another fab friend, who is currently organising my hen do. She has been here 5 minutes and already has some wicked suggestions. The race’s is currently front runner. All ideas welcome. What did you do for your hen ladies?
Class numbers are stabilising themselves again which is good to see but you must never let your foot off the gas when it comes to promoting classes and advertising. My gym classes are busy at Virgin Active and Trugym. I only do 3 classes in clubs and the rest are community.
I am looking to organize a Zumba day/dance aerobic event again in the summer, would you guys be up for it? It would be in Leeds.
I am also presenting on a Funk Raiser event being organised by Nikkie Riozzi on Saturday June 22nd In the Midlands. Check out the event on Facebook. I will send out more details on how to book through justgiving nearer the time.
Its Hot season!
IFS2013 is here! It all kicks off on Friday with 3 days of inspirational, innovative, incredible classes.
I am so excited to be presenting there again it will be my 13th year. I have Lyrical Jazz, Street dance and Step Sista team teach with the gorgeous Sava Assenov from Germany, who is making me dress up in fancy dress, haha, I love it really.
It is faaaaaantastic. 3 days of brain busting. New programs, news choreography, networking, catching up with old friends and making new ones.
I will do my own classes plus join in others. I love to learn and see what’s new in the industry, I also need to stimulate my brain too! It’s getting harder as I get older haha! Next year will be the 10th Anniversary so BOOK your place now
Mission Clean & Lean
Well Spring Clean 7 day detox is in full flow and they are doing great 🙂 Everyone is loving the new smoothie recipes we have added into our meal plans. We have another Spring Clean detox starting Monday 25th March if you are game for cleaning up your food habits and hitting some work outs you can book now via our wonderfully new and sparkly website www.missioncleanlean.com
We had a wonderful day on Tuesday cooking all the new dishes to feature n our healthy detox ebook. I had to prepare some dishes for photographing and make them look attractive, which any normal person can do but I struggle with making my cooking look pretty. I love to cook but it’s not something that comes easily to me, it always tastes nice but does not always resemble that picture perfect look ha ha!
Needless to say the ebook ROCKs!!!
