The first bite of what I consider more of a ‘winter’ fruit – a pear – and thinking: “man, I need to buy these more often, so yummy.” <– love how good ‘healthy’ tastes…
Glancing in the mirror while washing my hands in the bathroom at work the other day and doing a double-take, thinking: “is that really ME staring back at me in the mirror?” <–fit ‘self-love’ moments like these are rare, but when they happen, embrace them: note to self but also note to all of YOU to celebrate you and your unique beauty and strengths more often…
Shamelessly shooting ‘selfies’ and sharing them on instagram after particularly fun sweat-fests and resisting the urge to think: ‘man, I must look so vain by posting this,’ and instead thinking: ‘Sweat just feels good. Maybe someone will see this and get motivated to get their workout in today…’ <–this actually happened after I posted this pic the other day on instagram, and seriously it made my day.
Excitedly discussing ‘fitdate’ plans with my sis over IM – both in advance of last night’s fitdate at the barre (where my sis royally kicked my ass at barre n9ne thankyouverymuch) – but also in advance of next week where schedules will finally allow us more fitdates together, and thinking: “how geeky do we sound right now chit-chatting about when we’d like to run together and what classes we can take together…but I wouldn’t have it any other way….” ❤
Taking the extra time this week to throw a few fun curveballs into my barre n9ne classes – which took the form of killer core and glute work, two of my favorite areas to work (if I *had* to choose…hee) – and thinking: “I hope clients don’t throw the silver balls at me after class is over…” 😉 #Ilovethisjob #livingthedream
Fit makes me happy, what can I say? What also makes me happy? Spending the next few days with the ones I love most on this earth, cherishing every memory made, every moment big or small. And I hope you’ll all be doing the same. ❤
you make me happy! and you are never vain. just HAWT!
Love this and how happy you are with yourself. That is so great. I love how you said you looked in the mirror and had to ask yourself if it was really you (in a good way, obvi!). So great!!
Love this post sis! Especially since I obviously agree with it all, and love love love putting the time in to switch up our classes, learn new tweaks and confuse our bodies and clients’ too! And I loved our fitdate last night and our fit chats hehe 😉
Man, I haven’t had a pear in AGES!!!!!! They kick Apple’s ass! LOL. Did you get that pear in one of those Dean & Deluca gift baskets? ha ha.
I love that sweatshirt you are wearing – where is it from???
Have a great Christmas, Jess!!!
Happy holidays my friend!

Sweat is the new super model!
I’ve had some of the same thoughts. About oranges, seeing my arms in the mirror, and actually being excited about my December workouts 🙂 I love reading your blog.
