No Grit No Pearl

Good morning friends!  I hope your day is off to a good start.  I overslept and missed my spin class, so I did the T25 Core & Cardio Beta workout in my living room this morning.  You can see me action on Instagram (Warning: I’m hot sweaty mess – don’t judge!)  Also, I want to share this print I discovered from  Lulu & Georgia.  I LOVE it so much that I bought a copy and am going to put in a really cute frame.  Does this quote inspire you?  To me, it’s so simple and direct.  Pearls are created when little piece of sand or dirt (grit) enters an oyster shell.  Then inside of the oyster the grit gets coated and over time becomes a pearl.  Isn’t that beautiful?  It captures the reality that the greatest things in life are simply “trash” transformed into “treasure.”  Through patience, pressure and persistence anything is possible – that’s the truth!

Speaking of grit, tomorrow I will announce the winner of my signature GRIT tank top giveaway.  It’s not too late to participate – just post a comment telling me what “grit” means to you.  I’m loving the responses so far – very inspiring!

Last but not least, I’m officially encouraging all of the Dallas readers to sow their grit by waking up bright and early this Saturday morning and join me for the very last PiYo class on the wet deck of the W Dallas Hotel.  As usual, class it totally FREE!  We start at 9am (arrive at least 15 minutes early to get a spot) and bring your own yoga mat.  To celebrate a super successful Summer, we are having a special “Burpees & Breakfast” event.  After class you can enjoy FREE snacks from Cook Hall and drink specials – yay for $5 Mimosa pitchers!  Am I the only person who enjoys vino after vinyasa?  

Last #piyo clas @wdallashotel is this Saturday - see you there!

See you Saturday and show remember to show your GRIT!

Lots of luv, Brit

    It must have been that kind of morning Brit, I slept in also, as did everyone in my house. It can be SO hard to keep motivated when oversleeping. I just wake up without the start I need, and try to find my go go juice in some coffee but that just doesn’t cut it. Exercise is the only thing is, even if the traitorous brain tells me I have no time, OR desire to do it.
