We now have just ONE WEEK under our belts and you guys have literally blown me away! Classes have been filling up, with over 100 people registered on my site!!! WHAT!?! The vibe during each bootcamp is more than I could have imagined. Pilates on the grass under the summer sun. Boston lurking in the skyline. Early mornings with crisp, cool air while we breathe in our day and lengthen our bodies and minds.
Just a few weeks ago I did something for the first time. I modeled clothing. Not Nike sports bras and sneakers but I'm talking dresses, stilettos and jewels. I kept thinking to myself, "Who do I think I am? I'm no model." And you know what I am NO model! (And that's not just because I'm like a foot too short.) But I didn't let that stop me. I did it and lived to talk about it with you...
Recently I had the opportunity to work with Janelle Carmela Photography on a motherhood project. Janelle and I had never met before but we corresponded over email for several weeks leading up to our shoot date. I was really apprehensive about how the experience would play out. Life lately at our house has been chaotic, stressful and in my mind, it's rarely pretty. Two children under three, a 70 pound wild woman dog and two working parents doesn't equate for a photo shoot worthy situation. Or so I thought.
My initial response to trying new things is usually to think no. No, I can't do that. No, that won't work. No, I'm not good enough. Some of you may be surprised to learn that I always have this subtle case of internal anxiety. I've just gotten really good at controlling it. Through the years I've learned if there's something I'm nervous or afraid of then that usually means I have to do it.
Recently I sat down to answer a series of interview questions for my friend Lucie Wicker who started a blog series called #FitMomTalks. It was so rewarding to take the time to share my thoughts. I hope you enjoy reading.
As this year continues to spin to a close, I'm so excited to share some schedule announcements. Motherhood is amazingly wonderful (and equal parts exhausting) so I've taken my time being selective on what I can reasonably handle right now with an almost four month old and toddler at home. I certainly have more up my sleeve for 2017, but here a few things to get you pumped for now...
