This past month has been a little tricky. You may have noticed that I haven’t posted a wedding film in a little bit. Those of you who have ever edited video footage know how time consuming it is – WAY off the charts! Well, I feel like I should explain why there hasn’t been much posted these last couple weeks. One of the hardest parts of owning my own business has been figuring out how to balance my family life with my work. We decided this summer to take the kids to the ocean for the first time, so we packed up the car and took an old-fashioned road trip to Florida in July. Yes, it was hot, but not worse than Kansas! After our trip we only had a few more weeks until school started, and I THOUGHT I would be able to work with the kids at home. That turned out to not be the case. 🙁 Normally, I would just stay up until the wee hours of the morning editing away, but this is the summer of my midlife crisis, I mean fitness! Preparing for this event required an amazing amount of training, all of which happened around 6am. No more midnight workshifts for me! The good news is that the kids went back to school this week and I am back in the editing chair working on the MOST beautiful wedding! You can see the beginning of it on my website. Stay tuned for it on the blog very soon! I plan on sticking with the fitness part of my life because, frankly, I just feel better, but my balance is starting to feel a little bit better now that I am editing video again!
So, it seems fitting on the eve of leaving for Chicagoland to participate in this Triathlon on Sunday, to share a few more images of the work that we are doing over at Bootcamp Fitness with Coach Rut. I have done bootcamps before and bounced around several gyms, but never anything like this! The combination of stretching and a## kicking work, then stretching again is amazing! It was hard to get going with it, but after a couple months, I have to say that I really crave it on the days I don’t make it in.
So here is a little warm-up for you….
then some a## kicking – I love Coach Rut’s demonstration in the air!
and we end with some deep stretching.
Here is a little break for the advanced class. Maybe if I work hard enough I will be as strong as these ladies. They are amazing!
I have to end with one of my favorite detail shots – we carried these balls while running up a STEEP hill the other morning. I still have 15 lbs to loose, and it was pretty humbling to think that I was struggling to run with my 15 lb ball up that hill. MOSTLY exciting to think of how great I will feel when that 15 lb ball is gone! Wish me luck this weekend!
