You don’t have to know me very well to figure out that I’m not the healthiest person alive. I absolutely love junk food, fries, pizza, fried chicken and ice cream. It wasn’t until recently that i realized that i felt like i really need to start making healthier choices as I’ve entered my mid twenties; for I no longer have the same metabolism of a 22 year old college student.
Join me in my journey as I struggle to eating healthy food, work my way out of toning my body, go to different fit events, learn how to balance my life between family, friends, fitness, work and blogging.
Tonight I went to my first fitness event called “Girls Night Out” by New Balance. We had the ever beautiful, soul inspiring, Shay Kostabi as our host and instructor for the night. She started our work out with her speech about “why we sweat” —- that we sweat for the struggle, strength, grace and victory. We sweat because it makes us happy, beautiful and glow. We sweat because that’s how we grow and learn together. Shay lead us into a fun, powerful, dance work out and through the 45 minute session, I definitely had my moment of struggle and it was very loud, screaming in my head to give up. But there was also that still, small voice of victory that I can do it— to not give in. So thankful for Shay for pushing us and encouraging us to keep going.
My girlfriends and I got to take pictures in the photo boot, drawn into caricatures, got a free gift bag with goodies and a very yummy treat, acai bowl for the rest of the night. There will be another Girls Night Out New Balance Event event in Santa Monica on May 19. Grab your squad and join us as we sweat and sparkle together!
