Come, relax and enjoy the ride!

I am excited to open my own cycling studio, Sol Pedal. To be doing what I love and have loved for the past 6 years is a blessing. Many of you have ridden many miles with me, so come back and lets travel together. Time flies as we cycle to an eclectic mix of music. I created the studio to be funky and fun, a place where you feel surrounded by happy, healthy energy.

So join the Ride. Its the only hour of your day that you can completely get away. We sweat, sing along, push each other and have a blast. Sure it's exercise, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun! After all, life is what you make it!

Dale Carnegie once said, “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It’s what you think about."
It is perfectly normal to have bad days and not be happy every day, every month, even year to year. In fact, in a recent scientific study, overall levels of happiness decline from one's teens to their 40's and then pick up again until they peak in the their 70s. So your happiest days are yet to come. That should give you something to smile about! ~ Marc and Angel Hack Life

There are exactly as many special occasions in life as we choose to celebrate. ~ Robert Brault

The Holidays are upon us - celebrate how great your life is everyday, not just when the calendar tells us. Sometimes we go through our day and do not realize the gifts we have to offer and the gifts others have to offer us. Make this a season of giving and receiving. It feels good. Celebrate your day to day life!

The holidays can be one big fat trap. But before you steer clear of the dessert table, take a look at the who knew health benefits of these seasonal treats.

Pecan Pie - Research shows that pecans have the most antioxidants of any nuts, including almonds. As a bonus, they are loaded with cholesterol-lowering plant sterols and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Pumpkin cheesecake - A half cup of canned pumpkin contains more than 350 percent of your recommended daily value of vitamin A, and immune-boosting nutrient. Plus, pumpkin has high levels of carotenoids, the pigments responsible for its bright orange color, which studies suggest may neutralize free radicals in your body, helping prevent disease.

Gingerbread - A natural anti-inflammatory. Ginger can reduce exercise related muscle pain. The potent spice also aids in digestion, which makes gingerbread a perfect finish to a big holiday meal.

Hope is the feeling that the feeling you have isn't permanent. ~ Jean Kerr

Psychologists suggest that we are driven by two connected motivations: to feel pleasure and avoid pain. Most of us devote more energy to the latter that the former. Instead of being proactive and making choices for our happiness, we react to things that happen in our lives, and fight or flee in minimize pain.
