I had a nice, relaxing three-day weekend. Rest, trashy TV, girly lunches, pedicures – divine! I decided to relish in my “non-schedule” and sign up for Monday’s barre method class w/ Julianna. I’ve mentioned a bajillion times how much I love classes with her and Tanya ~ but sadly I don’t get to the studio very often!
I arrived last night ready for a good ass-kicking….and I got so much more! The workout was amazing (as always) and I am crazy sore today (sore biceps, triceps, abs, glutes….ouch all around!) – but I also got a lesson in living in the moment. I am notoriously someone who “lives in their head” – I’m always playing out crazy scenarios or thinking about my monstrous to-do list or comparing myself to every person with in a 50 mile radius. Last night? Clear head – strong muscles. I was so focused on Julianna’s words and on executing each move properly that I couldn’t believe the hour was up so quickly! I didn’t stare at myself in the mirror and pick apart my every flaw. I didn’t watch the girl in front of me with envy. I focused on my muscles, on pushing myself to do 1 more rep and on truly enjoying every minute of a class I normally don’t get to come to!
Coming home I was on a high like no other and decided this class needs to become my Monday habit, pronto! Ladies who hear me yap about barre and live locally, wanna join me? It will be fun! :0) You will be sweaty and feel crazy strong afterwards!
