Fitness has always been an important part of my life…work hard play hard right? In the past year fitness had begun to lose its appeal, I had been doing the same gym
work out for a few years and wanted something more. I found out about Eat Play Love Fitness “Vacations” and thought it would be a great way to sample a new challenge.
After my first two-day retreat in Whistler I was hooked. Spending a full day (or two) immersed in physical fitness, discussions about healthy eating, trekking through nature and chatting with other like minded people felt like I was pressing a life reset button. I literally felt like I was resetting myself. I came away with a fresh outlook on my health, a new focus on me and new found perspective on stress, work and the value of balance. Don’t get me wrong it was tough! There were moments after hour 3 or 4 where I thought I just couldn’t do another push up if someone paid me. But I did do another push up and after hour 5 I felt like I could keep going all day. It’s amazing how sometimes we set limits in our minds and realize only after we fly past those limits how much we underestimate ourselves!
The day long fitness retreats at Eat, Play Love, are my gift to myself each month. This past month I decided it was time to up the anti and celebrate the fact that my fitness level was finally where I wanted it to be. I purchased my first outfit from Silver Icing at the suggestion of a close friend who lives in their gear. I felt great in the Layana Capri, spending less that half than I usually do and actually getting a few compliments.
I run a tech start up and the ups and downs of life as an entrepreneur are wonderful and horrible, at the same time…everyday! My fitness bootcamps reset my priorities and remind me that looking good and feeling good are just as important as doing good.
