Hello, hello! Sorry I’ve been more on the MIA side this week…too much going on. I hope you’ve been well.
I got a very nice break from the usual madness, and met Taylor (with Kaylin) at Black Tap Coffee in downtown Charleston.
The shop is hidden away on a side street, but it absolutely beautiful inside:
Taylor and I discussed our upcoming wedding dress race and sipped on almond milk lattes (I want another one right now!!).
I definitely plan to visit Black Tap again.
The rest of the week has been filled with work, teaching, taking care of the peanut (who enjoyed a little pasta and turkey meatballs last night):
and I also got my hair done yesterday (very necessary).
Last week, I received a comment that made me smile and also got me thinking. Miranda said:
“I love your attitude towards fitness. It's so easy to get sucked into the mindset of having to have a six pack or be perfect instead of having fun!”
I couldn’t agree more. I think goals are fantastic. They help you determine how to get where you want to be. BUT…I do think that on occasion we all have a tendency to get sucked into the vortex of I need to look exactly like this, or work out strictly according to x, or eat strictly according to y….and it drives me a little batty.
I think one the best sources of motivation we can all have is a good fitness role model. While I have many fitness role models that I’m close to (specifically my Mom and some of the other instructors I teach with), I also have one “celebrity” fitness role model, the Program Director for Body Attack, Lisa Osborne. Lisa is on the shorter side (like me), but she is ferocious when it comes to fitness! Here is a little video of her and some of the other male Body Attack presenters preparing for the filming of the latest Body Attack release:
Who is your fitness role model??
