Today's Living Social deal was $25/ classes at Pure Barre. I've been wanting to try this! It seems to be a combo of ballet techniques and pilates/core stuff. Basically all those tiny muscles you never know about until they hurt like hell. I wanted to buy a bunch (usually a class is about $20-$25. Steep, imo.) There was a gift option so I thought I would just make friends and family buy it for me! But I called and they said no, the purchaser has to use it. Thwarted, again.

UPDATE: It let me buy another one with a different email address! Uh oh! Plus there are two locations I can buy from. Y'all. I'm about to make them really regret this decision. 

They also have a $100 unlimited month membership for new members which I could maybe make worthwhile. I may do that in a few months. I have a 2 week boot camp that I need to use as well. With the 2 wks they have a cheaper option to finish out the month. I'm waiting on the boot camp until April b/c I will be out of town some in March and you pay whether you go or not. Actually, I need to find out if it is a calendar month or just 4 straight weeks. Then maybe Pure barre. I don't think I can do both at the same time without dying. I'm looking forward to both!! Well, as much as one can look forward to something they know is going to hurt them and kick their ass. I love classes and totally need the motivation.

Boring post! Sorry. I'm planning on doing some more recipes/nutrition posts for National Nutrition Month! And a post of my new favorite things.

I took a Bar Method class a few months ago, which is basically the same thing, and it kicked my ass.

What we shout at the screen depends on the exercise. "Oh my god" makes us have to do burpees, so there's a ton of "SHUT UP SHUT UP!!!" Last night we were screaming at the girls to CRY CRY CRY!!!! because we are terrible people, and wanted to do more curls/pull ups. Definitely not enough crying this episode.

Ballet dancers are HARDCORE. I took pilates classes with someone who works with the Boston ballet, and OMG. Pain! Good luck ;)

Oh I would love to take a class like that! Why do they have to be so expensive!! I wonder if they have classes like that here!
Cant wait to hear all your good nutrition info! :)
