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?
