Baby Outing: The Dailey Method Barre Studio

As I’ve discussed before on this blog, I’m trying to get back in shape and “tone it up” after having my daughter 4 months ago! It is proving to be a little more difficult than I had imagined, mainly due to the lack of time that I can allocate to working out. That’s why I was extremely excited to hear about the new Baby Class at The Dailey Method Barre Studio  in Carlsbad.

What is The Dailey Method Barre?

Pre-baby, and even pre-pregnancy, I had always been very curious about Barre classes. I learned that the Dailey Method is a unique combination of ballet barre work, core conditioning, muscular strengthening, yoga and orthopedic exercises (yep, yep and yep – I’d like all of this, please!) This form of exercise is safe for all levels of fitness, even pregnant women. And they play really fun music.

Baby Class

The new baby class incorporates your baby into the workouts allowing them to be the added challenge of working through thigh work with the babe as your resistance. During the workout, your baby is in her carrier with you through every motion – or on a mat staring up at you as you complete the exercises.

Let me tell you – this class was HARD. I was sweating bullets and had to take little breaks here and there. And the next several days after the class my legs were like jello jigglers – so sore! I hadn’t completed that intense of a workout since before I was pregnant. I was hooked. Finally, a more intense workout that also incorporated the babies. I’m looking forward to making these classes a part of my weekly schedule. The Dailey Method Barre Studio in Carlsbad also offers childcare right there in the studio if you decide to sign-up for regular classes (sans baby) – so convenient for us busy moms!

Spring has Sprung: 5 New Goals

Happy first day of spring! There’s something about the first day of spring that just screams new beginnings. The flowers blooming, the birds chirping, Tucker chasing the birds that are chirping…

I always like to set little goals for myself right around this time, because, let’s be honest, my New Year’s resolutions don’t always stick at first (I think everyone needs a good couple of months after the holidays to recover and regroup).

So, in no particular order, here is my list of 5 goals for Spring 2014:

1. Exercise More: I know,I know, SO predictable. But after my Fit, Fab Feb, I pretty much fell off the wagon. With this warm weather upon us, thinking about getting back into a bikini after having a baby is probably the scariest thing I’ve faced since a man with a chain saw chased me at a haunted house two Halloween’s ago (and that was TERR-I-FY-ING)! That being said, I MUST find the time to workout. And “finding the time” has come to mean, incorporating Blake into my workouts. Here are some great links featuring workouts that incorporate your baby. Blake and I tried a few of these and Blake laughed the whole time – so much fun!

2. Entertain in our Backyard: Pre-baby I use to love to entertain at our house. Strike that, pre-pregnancy! I tried to entertain a few times while I was prego and the whole, being too tired to enjoy the party and not being able to indulge in an adult-beverage with my guests, really just put a kibosh on the whole thing. But, now that Blake is a little older and not crying every hour, I can’t wait to host some fun spring and summer parties in our backyard! After finding this awesome lantern at HomeGoods and digging out this cool book from the closet, I’m ready to start planning some par-ties!

3. Plan Summer Vacations: Some of the best memories from my childhood were while we were on vacation. I can’t wait to take Blake on so many fun adventures, exploring new cities and countries. I want her to know how to get dirty while roughing it camping but also how to dress up for afternoon tea in Paris. (Check out more of my hopes for her, written before she was even born). I just can’t wait to show her the world!  This summer we’ll be taking her to Lake Tahoe, Colorado and the Outer Banks to start. So much planning, so little time!

4. Launch my Business: It’s official – I won’t be returning to Hyatt after my maternity leave. After living and breathing that job for 4 years, it’s time for me to take the next step professionally and launch my own marketing consulting business. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but finally life seems to be just where it should be in order to take this next step. It will also allow me a flexible schedule to be a full-time “Mommy” to Miss Blake. So, with one client strong, I’m launching KH Marketing in the next couple of weeks. Maybe I’ll even throw a Launch Party to also help with my goal #2?

5. Teach Blake How to Walk: Juuust kidding – the child is not even 4 months old! But, I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next. Her belly laughing and now, rolling over are so adorable I just don’t know how she’s going to top those. (Somehow, I know she will). :)
