So I held my very first event and it turned out great thanks to the wonderful staff of One Medical, Yola, Mint Fitness and Immersa Marketing. I cannot thank Quynh enough for her patience and incredible professionalism throughout the whole planning process! Mint Fitness is by far one of the nicest gyms I have ever went to... from the people working there to the spa facilities to the locker rooms... 1st class all the way! I have always been googoo gaga for smoothies and yogurt and Yola didnt disappoint.. I think I had 3 cups and I know for certain some of my guests had far more than one a piece as well if that doesnt attest to how positively yummy they were!!!
Sunday was my first time taking a Zumba class and well, to be honest, I not only was HORRIBLE at it but I couldnt keep up (not everyone is as energetic and awesome as you Kate lol). I really went into it thinking I was going to be super rhythmic like back in my Grind Workout Video days but yeah, ummmm, NOT SO MUCH! Even though I was all over the place and you will see in the pictures, I had probably one of the best times at any event I have attended in DC. and noooooo not because I hosted it either! The reasons being, it was nice not to have to dress up and do the pretentious thing and it was fun to see everyone cutting loose and enjoying themselves. Don't get me wrong I adore getting dolled up but every now and then a change in routine is always needed! We laughed and laughed and laughed and to me there is nothing more fashionable than a healthy heart and a genuine smile!
One of the highlights was of course getting to meet some of my readers. It is still very surreal to me that I have readers lol and I get sooooooo geeked to see everyone in real life. I really hope you all had a fantastic time!! I got so many requests to host more fitness and fun events sooooooo I have already started planning the next adventure.... this is my version of "fashionably fit" and I hope you will all join me!
Huge thank yous again to everyone that RSVP'd and attended. You guys are my heart and I forever appreciate you! Big thanks and kisses and many more homemade dinners to my boyfriend for taking all the pics without me even having to ask. He is truly the best!!!
Now on to the fun..... I do have some super duper hilarious pics of everyone BUT I didnt want to embarass anyone nor do I know everyone's comfort level so I tried to pick the most tame ones...... BUT I do have a disclaimer: I put up every ridic crazy pic of me that wasnt blurry so please prepare to laugh because I certainly did!!!!
