I hadn’t worked out since I graduated h and a wonderful stress relief for me. It’s igh school, which was half a lifetime ago. I liked the idea of yoga, but every time I tried, my body didn’t cooperate. Running is something I have never enjoyed, except if its to a sale. I got tired of a close friend’s persistent requests for us to try a spinning class. So when an opportunity presented itself to attend a flywheel class with fellow mom bloggers, I agreed to accompany said friend purely for moral support. Turns out, she didn’t make it to the class due to a raging stomach virus but I preserved and attended solo. That in itself is a huge deal.
But the craziest thing happened, I felt energized and immediately was hooked. I definitely owe the instructor Lissa for that. The timing couldn’t have been better. My mom got sick around the same time I started FlyWheel making me much more conscious of needing to stay active, healthy and fit for my own family. I never want to put my children through watching me deteriorate and suffer. flywheel has also been very therapeutic and a wonderful stress relief for me. It’s one hour that is all about ME and I block everyone and everything out of my head. I let my body feel the beat and fly.
I have already invested thousands into my new hobby and a few weeks ago attended Self Magazine’s Up N Out Studio. I went strictly to take Lissa’s FlyWheel class. I stopped dead in my tracks when I noticed the Chantelle booth.
Most females dislike bathing suit shopping. But I truly detest having to buy bathing suits and bras. All year, I have been unsuccessful in finding any sports bras that fit me and I’ve tried everything ranging from Reebok, Nike, Gap, Old Navy, random brands at Target, the list goes on and on. Chantelle is one of three brands of bras that fit me (Wacoal and Mysterie being the other two). So for all my fellow big chested friends, Chantelle has added a high impact sports bra to their line which “effectively reduces bouncing up to 68%”! I was lucky enough to get fitted on site and receive a 15% off discount for being at the event. I eagerly ordered my bra on an iPad and it arrived within days.
I am also very proud to boast that because of doing flywheel weekly for the past four months, I went down from a size 36 or 38 to a 32! I am so satisfied with my new sports bra that I bought a second one in the neutral/grayish shade at full price at Bloomingdale’s. Now that’s a happy customer!
Stay tuned for my continued progress.
Also loving my new pants mesh and cut-out pants from Luluemon. I broke a vow and broke down and bought my first piece of over priced, but highly worth it, work-out gear! My work-out collection is growing leaps and bounds as I’m shrinking and becoming more fun to shop for than my regular wardrobe!
Love my custom made MILF tank? I’m taking orders so let me know if you want to purchase one!
