A Day of Fun at the Boston Children’s Museum

Hello and how was your weekend?  We had a great weekend here!  I did a barre training this weekend to help hone my barre teaching skills.  It was really amazing!  What did you get up to?

Last week I met up with my brother, his baby and my cousin and her two boys to check out Boston’s Children’s Museum.  I vaguely remembered it from when I was a kid, but I was excited to become reacquainted with my little guy.

Fit Fashion Club: PopFlex Dark Bloom & Kate Spade Activewear

Hello hello!  How was your weekend?  I spent mine in Pilates training.  Even though I already have my mat certification, I wanted to explore a certification program that went deeper into the exercises and also could progress beyond mat.  I chose Balanced Body because I love practicing on their equipment and they have a comprehensive training program that goes well beyond just basic mat.  So training 1 is done and now I just have to log my practice hours before moving on to more trainings!  I’m hoping to become certified by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) after I complete my Balanced Body training. 

Knowing that I was going to be around some amazing Pilates people this weekend, I knew I was going to have to look the part.  So I decided to check out two new lines that had my curiosity peaked: PopFlex Active’s Dark Bloom Collection and Kate Spade Beyond Yoga’s Spring Collaboration.
