Back on the blogging wagon February 2, 2011

Hey gang,

Sorry I’d seemed to disappear. Life got crazy after April 2010. My fiance and I moved to a larger house with a huge yard for us and our 5 dogs. Yes that’s right 5 dogs, 1 lab and 4 chihuahuas. If that wasn’t enough there was just the day to day craziness of running my business and trying to keep up with classes, clients and Urban Adventures. I loved every minute of it but felt at times like it was a game of catch up and what never got caught up was this blog.

I am now in a much more relaxed place. I have given myself mandatory breaks and short days instead of being available 6am-8pm, 5 days a week and 6am-2pm on Saturdays. That was running me into the ground and on the fast track  to burnout.

Now that my days are shorter, I have had time to get back to not only this blog but to cooking which I will share with you both in recipes and photos.

Well it’s great to be back but I’m going to keep this one short. I will be back tomorrow with a workout and recipe for the week.

Happy Sweating in 2011.

“Heather Parsons is a stellar Pilates teacher and trainer. Her knowledge of body mechanics comes not only from her professional training, but also from personal experience in rebuilding herself after a debilitating cycling accident left her with permanent and semi-permanent injuries. Heather is funny and supportive, which helps when she demands that extra set of squats or pull-ups. Heather is always willing to devise new approaches to work on or around my weak areas, making each session engaging and effective. And then there is her love for Chihuahuas.”
