Since moving to Augusta I have struggled with finding balance in taking Pure Barre classes and working at the store. I really wanted to get in a routine but I kept making excuses about going back to the barre. So I ended up taking about 6 months off from Pure Barre. I would take a class here and there but nothing consistent. I knew I needed to get back for my health and I needed to start making Augusta my home. I got an email from Pure Barre saying that a new challenge was starting! I decided I had to make the commitment and go to class!
I decided to start documenting my classes for this challenge on Instagram. That way I had some kind of accountability for myself! I know I must have look like a crazy person taking pictures during class and after class to the other ladies at PB Augusta. I explained what I was doing with the teachers and they were helpful in giving me ideas for posts each class!
I wasn't sure if I would be able to complete the challenge this time but I decided to give it a try. Pure Barre Augusta was giving away a Pure Barre tank to those that completed the challenge. I really wanted this tank because 1. It is black and gold (Appalachian colors!) 2. I need some new Pure Barre clothes!
tank for completing the challenge
I love a Pure Barre Challenge!
Up early for a 6 am Pure Barre Class
Pulled out my favorite Lulu leggings for the challenge
Class 4 complete and I even held plank for 90 seconds!
It took me a while to get back to my strength back. I hadn't worked out in months so this was a big accomplish for me!
Class 5 got a Pure Barre selfie!
Another 6 am class
I headed home for a long weekend so I went back to my original barre. Seeing the 100 barre reminded me I can do it!
Boo! Tucking on Halloween!
I love my new sticky socks and my new Pure Barre home!
An old school shirt and selfie for a 6 am class.
Sunday Funday at the barre!
I love Pure Barre!!
Just working on my Pure Barre ledge.
I love that my new PB family was up to the challenge for my posts. We made our own mannequin challenge video!
See Your Strong
(My second for the day!)
Thank goodness class 16 was over!
Another 6 am and I even brought a friend!
Well as you can see I didn't complete the 20 classes in 31 days challenge this time. I had to leave town for a business trip for the last few days of the challenge so I missed getting those last two classes. At first I was very disappointed for not completing the challenge but then decided I needed to be proud that I went back to Pure Barre. I think the challenge did its job - It made me go!
I am close to taking my 250th Pure Barre class! It is my goal to have my 250th class before 2017!
