It’s a rainy day and I’ve been working from my bed office. It’s just so warm and cozy! I recently made some big changes to our loft bedroom upstairs where I do most of my work. I’ve got the Y&R on my iPad Pro and I’m typing away on that great little table I made (this one).
any minute now to a shoot at Spokehaus for their #spininyourskin class in partnership with knixwear. They’re hosting a first-ever class focused on body positivity, while giving back.
Anyone who choses to #Spininyourskin (aka your knixwear bra & undies, ah!) multiple undergarments will be donated to CAMH Foundation (Center for Addiction and Mental Health). They’re really in need of bras for incoming patients so if exercise with a bunch of rad babes can help them out, I’m down. Also gets me out of the house for a good sweat!
They’ll still donate a bra if you do the class in your clothes. It’s hosted by model and body-positivity spokesperson Elly Mayday. There are more classes tonight if you want to sign up.
This is the bra we are getting. I hope it fits gahhh.
Knixwear is hooking us up with boy shorts and a sports bra and we are going to spin in our skin. The thing is I’ve never actually done a spinning class and I’m a little worried I might PUKE. I’m kinda NERVOUS ABOUT THIS OMG WHAT AM I DOING.
I feel more confident about my body since my surgery this summer. Before the new boobs, wearing a sports bra, or any bra was uncomfortable, not to mention how much I hated working out with those things. I’m going into this workout with an open heart and maybe, just maybe, I’ll like it?!
UPDATE NEXT DAY: I loved the class. It was so intense! I sweat A LOT. My bike was beside a girl who teaches spin at SpokeHause so I had a good lead to follow. Gonna go again. Feeling it today in my arms and kinda all over. Not dying but I feel it! 😃
I was invited to join this class and wanted to write about it because that's what I do. I wrote about things I like. Love this partnership and supporting to a cause that's actually close to my heart, physically. ❤️
Read about my struggles w/ huge boobs most my life and how I feel now. Spoiler - amazing!
If you missed my post over the weekend (here), I’m super excited about 2017 and the year is off to a great start! Last week is LA was just what I needed to motivate and inspire. LET’S DO THIS.
I have two speaking gigs this month and both are FREE to attend. You can get a ticket on the links below.
January 19th I’m speaking on a panel with Tangerine Bank about investments. I’ve talked about my finances a few times of the years and this panel focusses on RSP and investment stuff for millennials. Tickets are free, there’s a Q&A, and you can enjoy refreshments with us at BrainStation. 💰
Jan 25th: Writers Recap CES + Smith Lowdown Focus + Ingress Nex Band
I’ll be joining a panel of journalists talking about wearable tech trends coming out of CES. I’ve spoked at WWTO a few times and they get a HUGE crowd. There’s already 400+ people registered.Pizza Pizza and beer from Lake Wilcox Brewery will be served. 😎✌🏼
💭 This week in LA was a relaxing, reset, recharge. It started w/ a Sunday sound bath & breath workshop where I set my intention for the next few days. 🙏🏼I spent a lot of time alone this trip, driving a convertible all over LA, one-on-one visits w/ old friends, discovering new things, random shopping, last minute airbnbs, and a fancy 🍣 dinner by myself before flying home.
Today we hosted Emily’s 9th birthday party 🎈 (whoa kids!! 😴) and after I started thinking about work. And it made me feel good! I love Sunday cooking and tomorrow I’m making a soup for my job. Sometimes I think to myself ‘this is my life?’ and I’m *finally* starting to (hello 2017) say ‘YEAH GIRL IT IS YOUR LIFE, YOU CREATED IT‘.
I’m feeling energized and inspired by everything around me right now, similar to when I started my blog almost 12 years ago. Whoa dinosaur, April 2017 is 12! 😮
I’m really exited for 2017, to try new things, and put even more action into stuff that brings me pure joy.
Feeling a fire in my soul and warmth in my heart and what is another word for #blessed bc, well y’know what I mean. Here’s to making every single day feel like vacation. 🖤
