Barre Love

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a fabulous Thursday.

I went to my first barre class at Pure Barre and it definitely kicked my booty.  If you aren't familiar with a barre class, the outline is something like this - arm work, thigh work, seat work, ab work.  The arm work was definitely more fast paced than other barre classes that I've taken and I struggled a little bit at times.  The class was definitely challenging but not impossible.  My favorite aspect of barre classes is that they never get easier as you get stronger - there are always modifications or you can go a little lower to still feel the burn.  My groupon was for 6 classes and today's class was free.  They also offer a new student special - $99 for a month of unlimited classes (!) - so we'll see... that might end up happening :)

For the rest of today, I'll be applying for another full-time position and preparing for a couple of client meetings that I have tomorrow.  I love doing individual nutrition counseling - it's probably one of the favorite aspects of my job.  I also have discovered that I love doing nutrition presentations - isn't that crazy?  I used to be terrified of public speaking and I probably would be for any other topic that isn't nutrition.  I gave so many presentations in graduate school that it doesn't even phase me anymore - now I worry more about people getting bored!  At my part-time position, I do workshops for undergraduate students on various nutrition topics in addition to teaching nutrition makeover classes.  

And now... a little inspiration for your Thursday...

See you tomorrow!  I'm off to make Mama Pea's gluten-free scones :) Mmmm, I can't wait!

What's your favorite non-traditional workout?
