We’re 7 months (almost 8!!) into 2017 and so far this has been one of the greatest and most difficult years of my life. I’ve learned that everything is temporary – moments are fleeting, feelings change, people grow, and flowers bloom and wilt…I learned love is about giving everything (literally) and letting it hurt, especially when you don’t receive the same love back. It has been a year of hurting so bad but living so good and making friends out of strangers and vice-versa. I learned how important honesty is and being kinder to others can allow us to be kinder to ourselves.

All of this, is a work in progress. I am a work in progress.

I’m a really big advocate on SoulCycle. I’ve been going since 2015 and I’ve gone in California, DC, and now Austin. Everysingletime I leave the studio feeling different and feeling a growth in myself.

I went to Soul with Corey and Chris (the trainer) was saying everything that I needed to hear. I’ve been hurting really bad, like more than I ever thought possible. I try to be strong and keep my resting bitch face on like all the time, but I’m broken. (give me a break, Soul makes me vulnerable)

This cycle was all about being good to your body and removing the mental blocks that hold you back in every aspect of the world and what you do. It’s so important to treat your body with love and respect, and realize you are good enough. You are strong enough. 

SoulCycle is kinda like a religion for me – there’s a lot of preaching and there’s a lot of influence. Sure, it’s a kickass workout that literally sweats out all the negativity in your body. BUT!! There’s a mental release of the negativity and a move in a more positive direction, even though you’re on a stationary bike…haha.

My advice, go to Soul, use your first-time rider discount, and tap it back. It’s worth it.


A special thank-you to our friends at SoulCycle Downtown Austin for treating us to our class. As always, all opinions are my own.
