From work to work out

Athliesure wear is a fun trend right now in fashion and I am ALL about it.  With how busy our lives are I love that there are options of fashion that can take you from the office to the gym and you look good at both places! Plus, it saves time and money having clothes that serve a dual role.

So I partnered up with one of my favorite boutiques again Tiger Lily to help showcase athliesure wear!

30 Thoughts During Barre Class

For those of you who know me know I LOVE barre… I am a “Barre Junkie”.  However, the internal thought process that happens before and during class is quite entertaining (IMO).  Some people are so confident in working out, me not so much. The first time I ever went to class felt like the first day of cheerleading practice.  I was super nervous.

This post is meant to encourage people to try new things and realize even the most expierneced ones are attending the class to challenge themselves too! Who knows in a few months the “newbies” may be looking at you thinking WOW they are good! Hope these thoughts give you a few chuckles!

  1. I wore my cutest workout outfit today…. It will help my talent shine through. [More on Barre Fashion next week ;)]
  2. Gotta be early so I can get MY mat.
  3. OK. Got MY mat. Start stretching so you don’t feel awkward.
  4. I really hope I’m not the only non-ballerina looking, uncoordinated one in the class.
  5. There’s the instructor. Time to start. Man I wish I could have that body. Maybe if I do barre twice a day for like forever I could…. She probably doesn’t even eat pizza….
  6. Warm up time. AND march, march, march… Don’t fall over onto the person next to you.
  7. Ugh already time to plank…. Geeze.
  8. Thank goodness that’s over…. Arm workout engage.
  9. My shoulders are going to fall off… these 3 lb weights feel like 25lbs…. I definitely could never do crossfit.
  10. Ok leg on the barre…. Pretend you are a ballerina….
  11. Wow, everyone in class must have been a dancer their whole life… they all are SO much more graceful than me.
  12. I really should have stuck with dance… I could have been a Broadway star.
  13. SHE SAID GET THE BLUE BALLS OUT…. How does no one else think this is funny.
  14. Chair… I hate chair… more than planking even….
  15. Squeeze the blue ball… on relevé… this.hurts.bad.
  16. This better help me get a thigh gap.
  17. TRIPLE TIME?!??!
  18. Pretzel? Man, this instructor is doing ALL of my LEAST favorite moves
  19. My legs and butt should definately look like a supermodel buy the end of this class
  20. Blue Balls are back in action for core work [internal giggling]
  21. Pelvic thrust. Thank god guys aren’t in this class
  22. ABS. OF. STEEL.
  23. Oh I really like this song…. Has music been playing this whole time?
  24. Back dancing…. This.is.awkward. I hope no one is looking at me.
  25. Stretch time. YES. I see the light.
  26. Happy baby, I hope my pants aren’t see through…. Lululemon I am talking to you.
  27. Ugh I hate stretching my IT band. Not relaxing.
  28. Woah… I think my flexibility is improving…. I am practically a gymnast.
  29. Ahhh lay down and relax time. I DOMINATE this.
  30. Yay, clap for everyone you survived!!! I feel like wonder woman and I’m one class closer to actually being good at this. BROADWAY HERE I COME.

#100daysofhappiness: Day 9

Today was a day to try new things! I have been loving free online Barre workouts so I decided to go to a real class! I had some moral support with another friend who had also wanted to try it! So off we went to Smart Barre.  And guess what?! We loved it!  We signed up for a month of unlimited.  I am really hoping to see some improvement in my tone!  I will keep ya’ll updated!
