The Way Way Back

Oh another good movie weekend. I have been waiting for this one to come out. The previews for it caught my attention!

I went to see “The Way Way Back” this past Friday night. I LOVED it. It is funny, sweet, sad and exciting all at the same time. Plus you get to see Steve Carell in a whole new light.

Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner

T&G

I finished Lisa Gardner’s “Touch & Go” last night.

I really enjoyed it! I Could not put it down.

About: “When Justin and Libby Denbe, along with their beautiful 15-year-old daughter, disappear, investigator Tessa Leoni must race against time to expose the Denbes’ darkest secrets to discover who would want to kidnap such a perfect little family and just how far they are willing to go.”

Really recommend this book and any of Lisa Gardner’s books.

Working out can be addicting with Pure Barre

Pure Barre 7

I am not one to “have fun” while working out. I hate running, I get bored at the gym and I have no motivation besides trying to look ok in a swimsuit in the summer.

Well in January I discovered Pure Barre. It is a mix of Pilates, Yoga, Plyometrics and Ballet. It is all VERY small movements. So small an inch this way, an inch that way is all you are moving.

Pure Barre 1

I couldn’t walk after my first class and I still can’t walk even after doing it for close to 5 months now. Their moto is to LTB (Lift Tone Burn). This happens every class. You burn between 400-650 calories in a 60 minute class. Your body will shake but boy does it work. You see results after just ten classes. So you come into the room and grab your weights, ball and band. The warm up and Arm exercising is always the same. The different excerisies for your thighs, seat (butt) and abs is up to the instructor.

Pure Barre 5

You start with your warm-up which will make you tired and can’t believe that you have 55 minutes left of class.

Pure Barre 3

You start with Arms. Such a good arm workout using your own weight (planks/push ups, etc) followed by different moves using 2 or 3 pound weights.

Next you move onto thighs. This KILLS me. You do 3 different thigh exercises and it is all tough! Your legs will shake and that is the point! Embrace your Shake!

Pure Barre 6

On to “seat” work..AKA your butt. Two excerises here (per class) and your butt is bound to look amazing! If someone was to walk into class, they would truly think we are not doing anything!

Pure Barre 9

Finally minutes of class are spend on ab work. You spend around 10 minutes on ab exercises. Your abs with shake and it will hurt but it is totally worth it!

Pure Barre 8

That is the bases of Pure Barre! It is so worth it and your first class if FREE! Give it a try. I promise you you will not regret it.
