Your 6:00 am alarm goes off. Another Monday. Another crazy morning getting your troublemakers to school is about to unfold. You have three breakfasts to make (and one of them isn’t even your own). You hear your husband coughing and sneezing downstairs, and you already know he’s going to want the day off. Make that a fourth breakfast.

“This is a standard raw tuna (poke) salad served in most Hawaiian homes. Although unconventional, it is sure to please the more adventurous seafood lovers. Be sure to use fresh tuna for the very best flavor, although fresh frozen tuna will produce acceptable results.”

The idea of breast cancer, well really any type of cancer, has always been an “it’ll never happen to me” situation in my own head. I try to maintain a healthy diet, a healthy attitude, and a healthy body (Studio Barre is a clear representation of that positive lifestyle!), so I just never even considered it an obstacle I might have to deal with at an early age.
Oh summer, we love thee, but it’s time to bid you adieu. The beginning of September is upon us, and as much as we’ve cherished every moment spent entertaining, chauffeuring, and feeding our children on break, it’s now time to GET BACK TO BUSINESS! Yup! The “Summer of We” that kept you in total entertainment mode is now the “September of Me”, and we fully expect to see you back at the barre, tucking off all of your BBQs and beach bonfires! As fabulous as summer can be, we also know how frustrating it can be to not have a whole lot of time to yourself, and often your fitness routine gets the short end of the stick.
Do you think of yourself as a positive person? Are you always encouraging family members or friends to look for the positive sides of situations? Are you the parent who cheers their kid on, no matter the situation? I definitely can say that about myself. A friend gets what they think is a bad haircut, and I see them rocking a brand new style. One of my sons has what he perceives as a bad day on the soccer field, and I point out a new skill I saw him master.
Have you ever been in a situation where just thinking that the end is near gets you that much closer to finishing? Of course! We all have! Whether it’s a long drive, you’ve gone for a run outside, or you’re folding laundry, just the idea that you’re right around the corner from being done is what helps keep you motivated to reach that finish line.
