Somebody call 911

Somebody call 911

On Saturday our local high school hosted an Indoor Color Guard and Percussion competition.  Throughout the day we had 69 local schools and private groups come to our school to perform their show and hopefully spend some money at our concessions.  (trust me, we need all the money we can get for band).  Now, notice key words here..indoor..color guard (they dance, twirl flags, swords, rifles)...percussion (keyboard, drums, cymbals, marching).  Did any of my words include CONTACT SPORT???  Well, what if I told you we had to call the freaking paramedics not once but four times!!  Yes, four times!  It has to be a record.  I almost lost my shit.  So you may be asking yourself, why would color guard girls pass out, have anxiety attacks, asthma attacks and blow a knee out?  Well, let me just tell you..they take twirling flags seriously.  Like, it's the end of the world if they drop anything!  No, you don't understand.  They will cry their ass off for hours over dropping a flag until someone, mainly their director goes over in their face and tells them to get it together, it's not the end of the world.  But to them it is.  Poor things.  So, they practice, practice, practice all day and they don't eat correctly or hydrate throughout the day.  Plus, it was hot on Saturday and they practice outside.  The performance is inside in the gym.  As soon as they perform, the body shuts down and BOOM!  They go down like bowling pins.  Somebody call 911..another color guard girl is down.  Later in the day after awards and before the gym was cleared another one blew her knee out while just twirling around with her friends.  Somebody call 911!  Again, for the 4th fucking time. Seriously, I can't make this shit up.  Again, my life as a reality show.  Then, while they have knee girl on the stretcher another one goes down in the bathroom.  WTF?  I've been at this school since 6am someone please let this shit end.  Now, please don't think I'm talking bad about color guard.  I love our color guard girls.  You will never know how many hours they practice to prepare for their show.  Yes, they cry at the drop of a flag but I love those girls.  They even let me give them pep talks before they take the floor.  You ready for it?  Here is my pep talk.."Don't suck as bad as you did last time".  boom!  what?  I'm just keeping it real.  So, overall we had a great day besides keeping the paramedics busy for the day.  Let me just make it clear that no paramedic was called out during the time the percussion groups attended in the evening.  Hmmm!  why is that?  btw, little b performed with his group and scored their highest score yet!

It was a long ass day.  sorry this post has nothing to do with fitness.  i did talk some people out of the funnel cake..don't they know it has 760 calories and 44grams of fat.  that shit will go right to your ass!  I know.  hubby tells me all the time i take the fun out of eating.  too bad.  somebody has to tell the peeps just what they are eating.  we had a nice little fit-bit contest between the band moms.  I of course forgot to charge mine and I'm not sure who won but i do know our director walked 17 miles that day. crazy right???

welcome to my band world!

It's me..Lynn

Today is the day!  March 8, 2016 is the day I'm launching my training website.  I chose the 8th because I consider the number 8 to be my lucky number.  Both of my boys were born on the 8th day of the month.   When I first thought of the idea for a website I knew for sure I wanted a blog page.  Everyone is always telling me I could be my own reality show.  I'm not sure why..is it because I'm running around teaching classes, training clients, dealing with band crap (I'm the president of our high school band program), keeping up with the house, 2 teenage boys and my hubby???  Or is it because I'm always speaking the truth, keeping things "real" when I should just shut my mouth? Either way, I'm glad to finally launch my website and my blog page. 
I will always try and make you laugh, give you information and give you insight on what goes on in my crazy head each day..lol!  I'm keeping this first blog nice, short and sweet and leaving you with 3 details about myself.

 1.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart.  I've known my sweetie since I was 14 years old and this October we will celebrate 26 years together.  Yes, we are still in love and he is my best friend. 

2.  I have 2 boys and they are both drummers...lucky me.  My Oldest son, Big B played in the high school marching band and now college and Little B is following along right in his footsteps.  Hence the reason I'm president of the Band Board.  Go me!  No, seriously, if someone suggest you become the president of anything you run your ass away!  Trust me, more blogs about band will follow.

3.  I like to curse and change the color of my hair.  So, right now it is purple..next month it could be blue. 

So, here's the deal.  I am not perfect.  I struggle just like you to make good choices each and every day.  Like last night for dinner I had popcorn and a glass of wine.  Why?  I don't know.  I'm tired people.  I don't have a cook (Lord knows I could use one) and I don't have a house cleaner (well, I sorta do because the hubs loves to clean).  I know, I'm lucky!  I can be your best friend or your worst nightmare.  But, one thing is for sure, I'll always tell you the truth, give you a good laugh and make you believe in yourself.
