Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope you are all feeling stuffed with love and gratefulness. This is absolutely my most favorite time of year. I am a total sucker for everything holiday. And yes, that totally includes crazy holiday treats, meals and drinks. And lights, and decorations and yes my Christmas tree went up before Thanksgiving this year! (Thanks BMW!) But most of all this season, I am trying to take little time keep up with my workouts, be more purposeful about what I put in my body and give myself a little time to meditate, pray and be intentional with my days.

Since it’s Fit Friday I thought giving us all a little reminder about the wonderful benefits of yoga would be helpful during this stressful (and fun too!) holiday season. A big thanks to my friend Jessica Fajans for being our Fit Friday this month! She teaches at CorePower Yoga here in Austin and we’ll dive into all her favorite things!

PS- major shoutout to my friend Jessica Johnson for providing all the gorgeous photography today! Check out her work @jessijoh if you’re looking for a photographer in Austin.

I can’t believe it is almost November! Seriously, this year has been flying by. And despite some of my best efforts, fitness hasn’t made the top of the list. Luckily, between all my travels I was able to sneak a few classes at The Barre Code in Austin on South Lamar! Different than a traditional classes, it’s more high-intensity and getting that cardio and toning all in one. Plus, Cami, the owner, is like the nicest person ever! You’ll want to go back just to hang out with her. And there’s a whole parking lot on-site, so parking is never a problem when you’re trying to squeeze a workout into your hectic schedule, whew. Now I am going to kick it over to Cami Kirschner, Owner + Master Trainer of The Barre Code Austin to give us a background on her passion for barre and her fav eats in town!

Fit Fridays with Bryan Gonzalez from LOVE Cycling Studio

For this month’s edition of Fit Fridays, I am lucky enough to feature my friend Bryan Gonzalez! He works in food, just like me, and also teaches spin at LOVE Cycling Studio! So he’s the perfect workout, foodie guru that totally gets that boozy life balance we are all trying to achieve. Plus, he’s got two adorable pooches and I know you all love dogs as much as me.
