This makes me feel better about my sad German skills. I told the guys they didn't need to translate, but I guess they were already going from Italian to why not just go to English from there.

Just Two More

Those have to be some of my favorite words as a trainer. Those wonderful looks I get from my clients as the sweat is pouring down their face, their legs shaking like they can't go any further, their forehead wrinkling so deep I wonder if it will ever go back to normal, the shade of red their cheeks turn as their breath quickens, all the while I am smiling amazed at how hard they can push past what's comfortable...and then I get to say those dreaded words, "Just two more".

I have missed these days.

Throw those Hausfrau frocks away and hand me my beloved workout gear. Inner Strength is open again for business!

So far, I am learning the in's and out's of working at a new studio. Super exciting! I am reconnecting with past clients. Missed them. Taking in all the energy from having new trainers around. And, just building this business back up to where it used to be.

Here's to working again! (I know you are all thinking...'bout time, Deb -- love you too.)

Sea Shipment

Finally. After 58 days, our final pieces of Switzerland have made their way home. I wish I could say I had unpacked all the other boxes we had left here in storage, but I can't. So, lucky me...we can just add these to the pile. Remind me again how everything fit in this 1200 sq. ft. house before. 

Oh...and Stella also wanted to say "Hi" to everyone.
