I don’t really feel like blogging tonight. I just wanna relax on my deck with my pup and a friend and a glass of wine. It was a bit of a stressful day.
But! I did want to tell you one thing I’m starting tomorrow that I’m really excited about: the Pure Barre 30 Day Challenge. The challenge is to attend 20 classes in the month of May. Between a half marathon I’m running (oh hey, I should register for it considering it’s this Saturday) and my parents visiting (yay!) and a wedding that I’m in (yippee!! oh…I better get my dress altered), it will be tough to make 20 classes. But darn it, I’m gonna try.
I can’t wait to see how my body responds to this type of workout. I know running intense intervals, doing yoga and lifting weights has improved my physique a lot so I’m a little nervous to switch it up. But hey, change is good for the body! [You can read my review of my first Pure Barre class here.]
If you’re local, I would LOVE if you’d join the challenge with me! I’m gonna need moral support and it’l be more fun if I get to take classes with blends! Seriously, please come sign up and join me! The Pure Barre studio is in Reynolda Village. Here’s their website and here’s their Facebook page for more info about the studio.
I’ll keep you updated as I go along to let you know the results. I’m still going to try to run 2-3 times a week and do weights at least once a week because I don’t want to lose my cardio and just because I love weight training, but I probably won’t have time for yoga. To keep running + lifting weights will likely require two a day workouts, which is a little ambitious, but we’ll see! 🙂
What workouts does your body respond to best? What has given you the best results for tone/leanness/fitness/overall health? Running + yoga + weights has been the perfect combo for me that benefits both my physical and emotional health.
Your homework: Don’t forget to enter the FlipBelt giveaway! [Growing up, I wanted to be a teacher so since i’m not, I’m just going to pretend and assign homework on my blog, k? 😉 ]
Second question: What did you want to be when you grew up? Teacher or lawyer or the CEO of USA Today. hahahaha. 🙂 I visited my aunt who worked at USA Today when I was in middle school and thought it was the coolest. So I decided just to aim to take it over. I don’t think it’s gonna happen.
Full disclosure: I’m getting a free month unlimited pass to participate in the challenge, but as always, I’ll be honest about my results and experience!
