Knock-Me-Off-My-Feet Virus vs. barre3 Fall Challenge

Knock-Me-Off-My-Feet Virus – 1; barre3 Fall Challenge – 0.

Let me backtrack. It’s been a month (!) since I started the barre3 Fall Challenge. I started strong but  hit a wall when I was knocked out by a virus, leaving me sore, weak and voiceless. I couldn’t teach, let alone take, a barre3 class for 1.5 weeks mid-challenge. Needless to say I was majorly bummed. I’ve been slowly easing my way back into workouts since then.

So much for a successful challenge, right?

For the most part I was able to stick with the nutrition component so maybe I’m not giving myself enough credit. It worked out well that there are so many barre3 soup recipes to choose from! I also stopped eating out for lunch and my dinner recipes made great lunch leftovers. My favorites? The Red Bean Quinoa Chili, Pork Lettuce Wraps and Warm Kale Salad. If you don’t have the barre3 app or an online subscription, you should immediately do that. Those recipes alone make it worth it!

My new goal will be to start working out regularly again, teaching three times/week and heading into the studio for my own classes four times/week. Wish me luck as I finish off November with a renewed energy (and immune system.)
