I spent a large part of today in a spread eagle/’happy baby’ position at Studio Barre. The.teacher.kicked.my.ass. With yesterday’s food overload I was jonesing for a hard, long workout. Studio Barre’s ballet-inspired fitness moves certainly did the trick. I feel sooooo much better.
Anyway, here’s a little post-Thanksgiving motivation: MC Barao. She’s a blogger babe, a fitness guru, & a popular model. Oh, & I’ll be making her rhubarb rosewater mocktail ASAP:
She’s totally inspiring…check her & her rockin’ bod out [ jealous!! ]…
