Group Fitness, Athleta Shopping & Painting with a Twist

Happy Monday friends!  Hope you had a relaxing weekend and are feeling energized for a wonderful week ahead.  I had a weekend full of positive indulgences and I’m feeling super satisfied this morning.  On Friday,  I had the privilege of teaching PiYo at Fossil World Headquarters in Dallas.  To my surprise, the entire Michael Kors jewelry team came to my class and boy did they rock it out.  We had a fun, sweaty, lunch break indeed!  There’s nothing I love more than meeting new people and connecting over our love for fitness and active living!  Also, shout out to Fossil for being an amazing company that supports healthy living among its employees.

On Saturday, I did my usual 2 Hour Saturday Detox workout with my gym buddies at 24 Hour Fitness.  I’ve been working out with these ladies for 3 years now and they are truly my best friends.  They even starred in my workout DVD (you thought they looked familiar, huh?).  We did our usually 1 hour Turbo Kick class followed by 1 hour Body Pump class.  We’re also planning a hiking and wine trip in the coming weeks which I’m very much looking forward to!

After class, I enjoyed a nice long shower, rubbed my body down in Marc Jacobs Lola perfumed lotion and headed to Athleta for a little retail therapy.  We just got Athleta in Dallas like 4 months ago.  I already like this brand because some of the Athleta employees came to my PiYo class this Summer and passed out free headbands to the students in my class – how nice is that?  I ended up buying 2 cute black workout tanks.  Both are kinda sheer and have a cool open back (I’ll post pics soon on Fitness Fashion Friday).  I wanted something that would go well with my neon sports bras and head bands.  The tanks are exactly what I was looking for.

Checking out the Fall collection at Athleta

I have to admit, this was actually my first time ever shopping at Athleta.  I was pleasantly surprised by the bright colors, chic styles and super friendly staff.  I think I may become a regular customer.  The ultimate determining factor will be how their yoga pants/leggings fit me – I haven’t tried any yet.  Do any of you shop at Athleta?

Loving that bright colors are on trend for all seasons!

Later on Saturday night my college friend from Cornell, Nicole (pictured on the right) planned a lovely ladies night for our Dallas crew.  We went to Painting with a Twist where you BYOB and take a paining lesson.  I had a blast!  Not only did I get to hang out with my friends, but the icing on the cake was that we painted a picture of the Eiffell Tower.  I have a soft spot in my heart for Paris because my birthday is July 14th, Bastille Day.  I’ve never been to Paris but I want to go SO badly – the City of Lights, sigh…

Ladies night wine & painting party!

Nonetheless, I’m super grateful the good times I shared with my friends.  Overall I had an amazing weekend and I’m looking forward to more goodness this week.  I can’t believe it’s going to be October!  Time flies when you enjoy good workouts, good shopping and good friends 🙂
