A New Chapter…..

Hey Hey everyone!

Today I’m so excited to share what I’ve been up to behind the scenses the past few months! I wanted to wait until it was official and I had a job (haha not to jinx anything.) I’ll be officially starting mid- May as a Pop Pilates instructor. Hooray!

I snuck down to Austin in February for training and worked my butt off to get my evaluation video in a few weeks later. And ever sense I’ve been learning choreo and reaching out to gyms and studios!

So let’s back up a bit on how I landed here….

I have followed Cassey Ho for years on her Blogilates site. Her youtube videos are great and something I could always quickly do if I wanted a home workout.  I heard about the Pop Pilates certification a couple years back and thought “that’s fun, but I don’t have time to do all of that.” This Fall, I was wanting to add a little something more to my schedule, but at the same time find something flexible that worked well with our family.  I was randomly scrolling through Instagram one night and saw a post about Pop. I delved in a little further reading about the certification process, AND as luck would have it, there was a training in Austin a few months away. Talked with my hubby about it, signed up and the rest is history! 🙂

Why do I love Pop?

  • It’s an equipment-free workout. All you need is a yoga mat!
  • We have different sections for each body part = lots of changes during class so nothing is boring!
  • The moves are unique & many are ones I’ve never seen before
  • You get the combination of toning exercises as well as cardio. All in one workout!

I have a couple more weeks before I start my first class, eek! I’ll be sure to share updates!

A Bittersweet Week

We are so excited and thankful to introduce our newest family member, Charlotte!

Char

She came into the world on March 9th, earlier than expected, after my doctor was unable to find a heartbeat on our baby boy.

As you can imagine our emotions have been all over the place. She’s still at the hospital to get a little bigger, she’s a tiny little thing, but is doing great and just needs more time.

We are trying to focus on the positive and are so thankful we have her!

Dallas….here we come!

I may be away from the blog for couple of weeks because we are MOVING!!

Our lives are changing so quickly, but all in good ways so we are nothing but excited.  Once we get a little more settled I will fill you all in on the details. We have a great network of family and friends in Dallas, so that will make the transition much easier.

Can’t wait for our next chapter! 🙂

Thanks for following along!
