25 THINGS {BY SAYEH}! 28 Aug 2013

This week's 25 Things comes to us from one of my newest favorite instructors, Kelly Wong. Her style is encouraging, yet relentless and firm yet infused with humor. Exactly how I like it, and exactly what her list below demonstrates. Her Watershed has even pulled me out of bed to make a 7am class, and we all know that I am not a morning person. There's something to be said for a person that can make me laugh while I have a spiky ball pressing into my IT band. Enjoy! I certainly did. 
  1. Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Do one thing every day that scares you." One day I tried cliff jumping. It's terrifying.  I wonder if Mrs. Roosevelt ever did that.  
  2. I am a slow reader because I...savor...every...word. 
  3. I have one sister, who still laughs at my jokes, no matter how corny.
  4. I love movies about high school even though I didn't really love high school.
  5. I was born with a full head of jet-black hair that stuck straight up in the air.  I was known as Mophead for the first 3 years of my life.
  6. My grandfather was a U.S. Army WWII veteran who once told me that if I didn't stop sucking my thumb, he would cut it off. I believed him and stopped shortly thereafter. Effective indeed.
  7. You can find me with a cup of green tea on any given morning.
  8. I didn't exercise regularly until I started at Lithe, but quickly became hooked.  I wouldn't let myself "late cancel" and set weekly goals in a journal.  I learned to prioritize exercise and make plans around my workouts. 
  9. I couldn't swallow pills until I was 14.
  10. I want a party, not a funeral.
  11. I have dyed my hair only once and donated it twice.
  12. When I was a kid, I had a dream that I was married to Mumm-ra, the evil demon sorcerer from Thundercats. Only I could make him be nice.  I guess my ideal super power was to make the bad guys be nice!
  13. I listen to the Spa satellite radio station when I'm driving to avoid road rage toward aggressive drivers.  Who can be angry amid the harmony of pan flutes and waves crashing on the beach? Possibly Mumm-ra.
  14. My teenage Hollywood crush was River Phoenix.
  15. I am easily startled.  I'm talking high-shrieking, large-gasping, blood-pumping, hand-to-heart startled.  Scary movies and I don't mix.
  16. I am filled with gratitude that my parents have been open-minded and supportive through all my major life choices.
  17. I have two rescue dogs who love mornings even more than I do.
  18. I practice yoga, which helps me breathe better through stressful moments and busy days.
  19. I clean, decorate, or organize when I'm procrastinating from stressful projects.
  20. I've never seen The Matrix -- not for lack of trying, but something always gets in the way. 
  21. My strange party trick: I can rotate my shoulders almost 360 degrees around. 
  22. I was born at the hospital shown in the opening credits of General Hospital.
  23. I have driven cross-country 3 times, with 3 different people, in the same car, with the same dog.
  24. I often sleep diagonally in the bed, with my arms spread out, and I steal all the covers.
  25. My husband is my best friend and is really understanding about my sleep habits.

This was so awesome! Such a unique and funny list. Kelly's the best! xoxo

This was an awesome read after Kelly's 7am watershed ;-) Glad to know I'm not alone in my lack of regular exercise until I found Lithe and a serious mindset change (now a year strong and Kelly was my first Lithe 101 instructor!!)

#5 is still cracking me up!

She is great. Always pleasant and full of energy and strength

I LOVE General Hospital!

#5 cracks me up because my oldest son was the same way and up until he was 10 mos old I always said his hair grew up and out, not long.
#1 is something I am trying to work into my life - it's important to challenge yourself.
#10 I want people to literally be dancing on my grave because that's what I would be doing.

I love your classes Kelly! Thank you for sharing.

kelly's got killer form and stamina, and she's such a sweet and beautiful person. she's incredibly motivating and fun:) i love learning all these neat things about her! what a beautiful family, too, with awesome cross-country travels.
