Just For Me

For a few weeks now, on Tuesday's I have been taking a Latin Cardio class followed by a Yoga Fusion class. I am pleasantly surprised to say I am LOVING it.

I need to be doing more for me. That should be the mantra for all mommies out there. So, I am trying. Once a week, I drop the kids off at school and head to a small fitness studio.

We spend an hour sweating and dancing salsa, bachata, with a little african and belly dancing thrown in. It is great fun.

Then, we spend an hour doing yoga mixed with pilates. The emphasis is on core strength. Right up my alley.

And the best part, it is all taught by a physiotherapist, who knows that most of us are moms desperately wanting our old bodies back, many with joints that no longer resemble that of our former selves.

A perfect mix, just for me.

Good for you! That's one of my resolutions for the year, to do more for me, I know it sounds selfish. It's so hard for us mommies to make time for ourselves but when we're happy, everyone is happy! You've inspired me! :)

That is fantastic. I can hardly wait until I have free time! It is so important to do stuff just for you, makes everyone feel better.

And the classes sound like a lot of fun!
