Woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend... Just when I thought life could not get any better I heard a knock on my door, it was Cancer.
It changed everything but not for the worse. I choose Life and Hope .
BACK OFF CANCER is what I say!

Feeling ALIVE...

Before I got sick, I can honestly say that I was in the best phisical shape of my life... I exercised regularly and was able to do some pretty crazy stuff ( ok! maybe a head stand is not that crazy but it was crazy for me as I had never managed to one before.. not even as a kid!) . .Anyway, I also used to take KINESIS classes with my all time favorite trainer ever ( Artie- Hi !) ..Kinesis looks a lot easier than what it actually is... the slow movements combine strenght and balance ... I used to love it !
Fast forward 10 months and here I am... healthy... and I just signed up to this really fancy new Gym .. and today took my first Kinesis class... I was a bit nervous at first... These people looked SOOO fit and strong... But you know what??? Is till have it... sweating like a mad woman I finished the class and did all exercises... and I felt ALIVE... I actually could never really explain what I felt... it was FANTASTIC !

i went to a pilates class last night at the gym. And I've been doing lots of sit-ups and things. Well nothing prepared me for this "beginner" class. It was tough, but I felt sooo good after. I feel like my body is getting sculpted into it's potential! Way to go! You inspire me:)
