Haven’t you heard, healthy interaction is totally the new bar scene and this past weekend was all about working out and feeling strong, healthy and above all simply great. It was a weekend to live better lives and work hard for what you want. And that all started on one Saturday of one weekend. My fitness getaway kicked off with the Spartan 5K aka one of the hardest challenges I have ever completed (thank god for great friends, endurance and a stubborn personality). It was, of course, celebrated with margs and ended on Sunday with a Pop Pilates class by Cassey Ho from Blogilates (you may have heard me tweet my soreness/ feeling of death after one or two of her classes here and here) It was definitely NOT easy. And definitely much worse after a 5k. My muscles were all sorts of shaking.
Isn’t it crazy that the most intense moments can leave you feeling the best about yourself? You only need a few essentials to have your own fitness getaway:
- Cute gear = weird feeling of wanting to go work out and get pumped for push ups = magically run harder and faster = stronger. Don’t believe me? Test it. Buy new shorts or bright neon shoes and you’ll just go all ham during your next work out. This should just be an excuse to continue shoppin every day… and then working out #HelpingTheEconomy
- Protect your hair!! Healthy hair is always glam, but not when it’s greasly grossly stuckly to your neck. Tie it back, braid it, throw on a cute headband or one of those cute Goody Ouchless (and crimpless) Ribbons and afterwards please don’t forget to dry shampoo it
- The best beats on your iPod! The right song can keep you running that much longer or finish that last set of sit ups that much quicker. And occasionally busting a move makes the entire idea of working out that much less painful.
Don’t forget to pack your shoes and yoga mat this weekend,
