I taught some Boot Camp classes this week at a dance studio I was a regular instructor at a few years back. Man, it felt great to be with the students, dance all day and enjoy time out of the house. I was also ever so harshly reminded by my hips and knees of my AGE. Sheesh! How rude, body!
NOW… speaking of dance and before I get to everything fantastic, I have a fun GIVEAWAY!!!!
Has anyone done The Bar Method? In case you haven’t, it’s all the rage and it’s incredible! “The Bar Method integrates the fat burning format of interval training, the muscle shaping technique of isometrics, the elongating principles of dance conditioning, and the science of physical therapy to create a revolutionary new workout that quickly and safely reshapes your entire body.” Celebs like Drew Barrymore, Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards and Zooey Deschanel (favorite!) all swear by it.
I’ve done it once and was sore for daaayyyys! I’ll actually be in Denver in a few months and am already looking forward to visiting their studio.
I have a special giveaway for one lucky Momma-To-Be: The Bar Method Pregnancy Workout DVD!
To enter, leave a comment below sharing the best/worst/craziest pregnancy advice you’ve heard. I love everything BABY, so spill it!
Note: you do not need a ballet barre to do the workout. The back of a sturdy chair works just great!
Entries/comments must be posted by 7p (CST) Monday, July 1. I will post the winner on Tuesday, July 2.
(This giveaway is open to any reader in the 50 United States.)
And now, without further ado, as the week rounds out, relax with some of my most fantastic online finds. Click the blue “Fantastic” link to go directly to the source page.
Fantastic Knock-off: With news that Chipolte will now label GMOs (and I super applaud this since there are still clearly a handful of GMO items on their menu), I thought this recipe looked extra yummy. We love Chipolte and are glad we can now order smarter, but we also like making things at home. This looks mouth-watering!
Fantastic Welcome: The entryway is the first impression your guests take in about your home. Doesn’t this color feel welcoming and calming? And dark floors with white trim/crown molding is my wood crush. Dreaming…
Fantastic Knees: Talk about adorable! What a great sassy addition to a little girl’s jeans after she blows out the knees at recess!
Fantastic Bright: Unfortunately this was posted awhile back and the item is no longer available. DARN! What a fun father/son project this would be! Anyone know of something similar?
Fantastic Flyer: How fun are these?!?! The little wings are just tooooo much to handle!
Fantastic Accent: I think my winged flats would go perfectly with this necklace, right? In orange, please.
Fantastic Tool: I don’t think Finn will be working on handwriting in school next year, but he’s already eager to write and loves showing people how we can spell his name. I think this would be a great way to improve what he’s already doing!
Fantastic Fourth Food: How incredible does this salsa look? This would be a great addition to any 4th of July spread.
Fantastic Flexibility: Challenge: each pose 30 seconds for one month, 14 minutes start to finish. No promises on the last 2 and no expectations…. who’s with me?
Fantastic Clean: The Wellness Mama has amazing posts. I have this image printed and hanging in my laundry room for reference.
Fantastic LOVE: My Grandma is moving this week. Lots of changes. It’s hard. Saw this picture online this week and was reminded of the million reasons I love her so.
Fantastic Jam: These voices melt like butta together!
Have a fantastic weekend! What’s on tap?
