Pink Clouds on a Stick

Well, it happened. Winter is behind us. Those gray, barren trees have blossomed to “pink clouds on a stick” to quote Mary Poppins. The birds are singing. We are 2 days away from Whole Foods opening in Fulham. 6 days away from the final season of Mad Men on AMC. 7 days away from Buggy Bootcamp starting back up. Um, could life get any better? Aside from 2 of my favorite people leaving the great city of London (Anna and Heather we will miss you dearly!), things are truly starting to look up. What are you looking forward to this spring?

I want to take a moment to thank you all again for your ongoing kindness and check-ins. My recovery is going smoothly and it looks like we will be ready to resume our schedule as normal starting a week from tomorrow (Monday 13th of April). Now that we can shed our extra layers I hope we can muster up some extra workout motivation as well. There is so much to look forward to! As classes are canceled this week, I urge you all to set aside some time for some heart pumping feel-good exercise on your own or with a group in the park (happy to help coordinate!). Warning: Exercise has been known to cause health and happiness! Aim to do this tabata session 2-3x this week for max results, plus plenty of walking/running on alternating days:

Also, for anyone interested, Stephanie Wibom is helping to organize a first aid class for babies under 1 year of age, at Holy Trinity Church by Sloane Square, this Wednesday 2:30- 3:30pm. She needs at least 6 mums to join her for it to be scheduled. If you are interested, please email Stephanie at: Stephanie.wibom@gmail.com.

Have a lovely week girls and can’t wait to see you all in a week’s time! Please do some extra planks for me!
