DEAR LITHE {LOVE LETTERS} 5 Dec 2013

LOVE LETTERS
Lauren and the ladies of Lithe,

How do I say this? Where do I start? You ladies are incredible.

I got my Lithe Anniversary email when I was in the hospital, just after delivering my daughter in early August. (It's funny to think I took a class with Lauren on July 11th and I thought I was delivering then! Ha!)  I remember thinking there’s no way I would feel this amazing postpartum without something like Lithe.  I was anxious to get back to the studio but had to wait for my clearance from the doctor.  That came just before the start of the Fall Challenge so I had a chance to ease back into Lithe after 7 (long) weeks away. 

I told my husband about the Fall Challenge and we (yes, we) decided to do it.  Why did I say we when my husband clearly wasn’t coming to Hot Legs?  Because this challenge was going to take effort – and not just from me and my drive.  It was going to be about him coming home to help with our 3-month old and occasionally using his flex hours to work from home if I couldn’t do the night class.  It was about my infant daughter that is still nursing staying on schedule so I could adhere to the class schedule.  It took coordination.  I’m so proud to say I was able to do 16 days in a row.  Yes, 16 days in a row.  I wish I could finish the challenge because I know I can but a family emergency has brought me home to Dallas.  This situation means I won’t be crossing that finish line in the Fall Challenge but that’s not stopping me from setting a new line.  I’ve shown myself what is possible.  I’m strong. I’m driven. I’m lithe.  When I come back to Philadelphia, I will work to complete those 14 additional classes.  I know there is no discount for my new finish line but in this case, as a new mom, the reward is in showing I can do it.  I’m bouncing forward and I’m loving the results.  

Can't wait to get back into the studio!

Congrats! I just had my first four weeks ago and am anxiously awaiting my 6-week appointment so I can get back to Lithe. It's great to hear that another new mom is managing to get to class despite the hectic newborn schedule!

Alli you are my hero! I hope your family situation in Dallas resolves without incident allowing you to return to the studios so you can show the rest of us Lithers how you bounce right past us! See you soon! xo
