No Brain Cells...a freakin' great day, a freakin' great life!

Good God....sorry for those that are offended by my using of God's name in vain but....

I had a grrr-eat day (in the words of Tony the tiger).

I must be the luckiest person I know.

I don't have the energy to write an entire blog post, only highlights of my life, today....

Let's start out with this morning.  Awesome workout in my first class and hopefully by the end of the weekend I hope to post the entire thing.  "Riding shotgun"....I've been lucky enough to have a great training partner for the past month who's getting ready for the RKC in 2 weeks, Anne Jelinek.  Here in this little tidbit....Anne is swinging the 24kg and rising to the occasion!  (sometimes when you know a camera is taping you can dig a little deeper!)

My morning went on to lead two more classes and a few more privates....with an awesome large cup of coffee from Philz', and a new pair of striped tights purchased at Lululemon, Palo Alto...seriously cute with a capitol CUTE!

I've also reconnected with someone who had a huge impact on my life but disappeared for the last year.  Miracles happen, and I'll never stop believing in them.

I'm drinking an amazing bottle of wine right now, and that's why I have to get back to you in the morning. (lol)

So much good stuff.  My best friend Fawn will be here in less than two weeks.  Mark and I will be traveling to Israel, possibly India and Croatia this next year.  I'm getting closer and closer to getting rid of all of the riff raff crapola in my life.  My oldest son Rick will be 30 years old this month and is ready to make some really positive changes in his life that hopefully I can help him with (hopefully I've been the example for him).  I have absolutely nothing to complain about...lucky me.

But, as Mark says, "You live the life of the rich and retired!"  And you know what?  Thanks to him, the love of my life, I do!

love you my sweet. It's a great time for us, only the beginning.put your seatbelt on, though....:))

Anne said...

Holy CRAP! I love it when my body does stuff my brain thinks it won't! :)

Tracy Reifkind said...


no need for a seatbelt, I'm always safe when I'm with you!

Tracy Reifkind said...


You did an amazing job this morning! You are going to totally kill it at the RKC and even better you are going to show up with a level of confidence you've never felt before!

This is only the beginning, it's barely touched the surface of what you are capable of!

Anne is kicking some serious bootie!

Tracy, remember we talked about Karma a few weeks back? Maybe this is your Karma for giving so much to many, like me. ;)

Diana said...

Nice job to Anne....however, speaking from experience, having you as a coach to get ready for the RKC..she will get it done! :)

Side note: such a shame that you have to have those ugly ellipical machines in the background!

Mark Reifkind said...


I think Anne mentioned that she had never swung the 24kg before! I guess that means you are next, lol! Yep, let's make that happen!

As far as karma goes....well, I'll tell you what I think about that next time I see you!

Mark Reifkind said...


Funny, when we were training yesterday I thought about you and your own preparation for the RKC. Nothing beats training "high volume" for just gotta do it!

And those damn ellipticals! If I had a magic wand, they'd be gone...poof! Since Mark and I just got into this new place it's going to take us a few weeks to take over!

Heck, we finally set out that stupid stationary bike we had in the garage on the street last weekend...poof! (it was a "brand new relic" left over from our gym, back in the day)

Maribel and Diana....sorry I'm downloading video in youtube signed in as Mark....that's why the comments came up from his account!
