Take a deep breath in. Now slowly let it out and smile… It’s Saturday.
I love Saturdays. Almost as much as I love good food. I wake up early and see one of my funniest clients who makes me laugh for an hour, and then I go and kick my own butt along with the butts of several pregnant women in Bloor West Village.
When I first took over the Saturday Belly Bootcamp class for my then-pregnant best friend Dara, I wasn’t sure I’d dig getting up early on a Saturday to exercise. Now – I live for Saturday mornings. Seeing these women working out, getting stronger and bonding over endless burpees and wall sits makes me so happy and proud. We talk about everything – today it was “how comfy are maternity clothes!?!?!!” and “how yummy is pasta carbonara?!???!!”, and we always laugh and sweat together.
After a great workout I come home to find my fiancée usually reading the paper on the balcony and we have a nice brunch together. Today I have a few hours of work ahead of me, but then we’ll get out for a bite or go to a movie.
Bliss…. If only every day could be a Saturday.
