It's been a busy busy day. I taught a Mat class this morning at 7 AM, worked at the studio until 12:15 PM, and then headed to the doctor for my 24 week appointment. We got to hear Annabelle's heartbeat and the doctor said she looked like she was right on track size wise! Always good to hear. I made it back home in time to grab a quick snack and get a few things done before heading back up to the studio for my 5:00 PM class.
I have some extremely exciting news!! I had the honor of filming a Cardio Barre Fusion class for DestinationFit.com last week. DestinationFit.com is all about helping people find workouts they love and can do in the comfort of their own home.

I was lucky enough to have three of my wonderful girlfriends shoot with me, so it was an absolute blast! Cardio Barre Fusion is designed to increase your cardiovascular strength while helping you to tone, sculpt, and lengthen your muscles from head to toe. We began with a 40 minute barre portion that focuses on toning the arms and sculpting long lean legs. Next, we moved to the mat to challenge our core in a way that only traditional Pilates mat work can do. We wrapped up our workout with a flowing yoga sequence to further challenge our bodies while stretching and lengthening our muscles. Don't worry, no prior dance experience is required for this workout! Just grab your equipment, be prepared to sweat, and get ready for a great time!
I hope you'll check it out! If you're not into Barre or Pilates, there are tons of other workouts for your sweating pleasure!
Today's IdeaFit word of the day was Inspiration, and my friend Alison, from Fierlessly Fierce, is a huge inspiration to me. She always has the most amazing attitude, is an incredible fitness instructor, and one of the best friends a girl could ask for! She wrote a great post today about how her pups inspire her to stay fit and included some fun workouts you can do with your dogs. Go check it out!
It looks like her workout definitely wore out the pups! I'm off to finish cooking dinner. Crock pot Mexican Chicken is on the menu for tonight!
