Happy New Year! Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately—I’ve been all over the place. I visited my parents on the Vineyard for Christmas; headed to New Hampshire for another family Christmas party; spent three days in New York to see my college friends and ring in 2014; and am finally back home in Boston just in time for a snowstorm. Woof.
2013 was basically just one continuous quarter-life crisis for me. It was wonderful and came with a bunch of major changes that now have me actually doing what I want with my life, but wow—it was messy. Exciting, but messy. Now that Hurricane Nicole has sufficiently destroyed everything and passed, I really feel like 2014 is going to be a productive, successful year for me. Already there’s so much to look forward to…
Teaching Pilates Plus at Btone
I’m starting the training process to teach Lagree Method Pilates at Btone in a couple weeks! I’ve talked about how much I love this workout a billion times on the blog, and soon I’ll be officially able to teach it. Can you say dream job?? All you in the Boston area will have to come check out one of my classes (if I make it through training, of course haha).
A P&I YouTube Channel
I’m going to (slowly) start turning my workout tutorials into YouTube videos. Finally! It may have to start as a once-in-a-while thing, depending on resources, but I’d love to have videos accompany my workout picture tutorials on the blog.
And speaking of this, if you know of a videographer or anyone in the Boston area with video shooting/editing experience (college students?), I’d love for you to pass on contact info! I know the basics of iMovie, and can definitely piece together (shitty) workout tutorial videos on my own, but I’d love to put out something of quality.
Running Another Half Marathon
Lately spinning has replaced running as my cardio workout of choice, but I miss it! I’m going to find a fun half marathon to get me back into the running grind—any suggestions?
Weddings, Weddings, More Weddings
Shit, I think this means I’m officially old: Everyone around me is suddenly getting engaged. I’ve been to one or two each year since I graduated college, but this year I’m officially entering that five-plus-a-year wedding vortex that is your mid-late twenties. My wallet might not be excited, but I can’t wait—the weddings on my horizon are all in beautiful locations (including Australia!!!). So fun.
Getting My Yogi On
I’ve mentioned on the blog before how I despise yoga. Ten minutes into every class I’ve taken, I start looking for a clock and itching for it to be over—too slow, too much “ohm”-ing going on—not my cup of tea. But I think I just haven’t found the right class/instructor, and the health benefits of regularly practicing yoga are just too attractive to write off. The hunt for a fun, upbeat yoga class in Boston starts now. Even if it’s just once a week, I’m determined to practice yoga this year.
What are you looking forward to this year?
