Pole Dancing, Private jets and un fills ~ 10 things Thursday

1.  For my sister in laws 40th we a took a pole dancing class at S Factor in was awesome.  If the studio were closer, I'd sign up for a lot of classes.  It was a great work out and lots of fun.  The best part is there were no mirrors in the studio and no men allowed. The women are very supportive and encouraging.
Did I feel like a goddess?...well, not quite, but I see how that could happen with a few more lessons.  

2.  We learned a pole trick - the firefly - where you spin around the pole...its hard work.  I've been telling all my male friends - tip your strippers, they work hard!

3. Part of my gift to SIL for her b-day was to take a private plane into NYC -the sea plane that lands on the east river.  I took it last year to visit Cat and Robyn.  So much fun!  

4. I got insurance approval to see my DR - yay!  Going to see Dr, Mehta tomorrow morning for an unfill.  I miss eating healthy roughage...Sliders have been a big part of my life for the past year.  Its time to fuel this body right.

5. I've been back on the road bike putting in lots of miles.  The trip to VT inspired me again to get lighter and faster for the trail.  So 5am wake ups and 30 mile rides are the new normal.  I love being out in the world when no one is.

6. We live in a beautiful place, I am lucky and thankful for that but more and more I want to move to Vermont or Sun Valley or somewhere that has a more rural feel - less range rovers, rich NYers and and more clean living and trails.

7.  Not sure how we would be able to make a living elsewhere - but opening the best dam fro-yo shop in the country seems like my #1 plan...Summer up north - winter down south. 

8.  This is the Pilatus PC12 - I'm saving up for it...because it would mean true freedom to have my own plane ***my friends and family think I am delusional***

9. We rented the same house in VT for the weekend after labor day - three nights four days of mountain biking - I cant wait to get back...I might just sneak up there in July for a day or two also.

10.  Going to see the DR - after a 30 pound gain...not looking forward to that but...its part of the process.

Here are some pics from the last week:

  1. I love the pictures flying into NYC! One day I'll finally get there!

  2. I've always wanted to go to a pole dancing class - maybe we'll go for my SIL's birthday!

  3. Pole dancing sounds fun, was it in a dance studio? Fitness club?

  4. I'm always so proud of you.
    Glad to see you're enjoying this gorgeous weather and just living life!
