Pure Barre PLATFORM - Bigger, Faster and TUCKING Awesome!

I've been dying {dying} to share this secret with you all for quite awhile now. Remember when I alluded to crazy loving a new "life-changing, calorie torching, is-this-twerking?, burn-in-all-the-good-places, hello skinny jeans favorite something" in my last Wednesday Loving Post here? Well, here it is my friends! Rolling out nationwide {look for it at your local studio soon!}, Pure Barre Platform is just another freaking awesome way Pure Barre will CHANGE your body. Lucky enough for us here in Lake Norman, we've been able to take these waitlisted, heart-pounding, hard-core Pure Barre classes for about a month now. And, we've lived to tell about it.

I've got 10 in so far so I'm halfway there at the halfway point which isn't half bad, right?! But oh em gee, I'm feeling it. Couple that with feeling extra tired lately because my sweet baby girl has suddenly decided she wants girl time at 3am, my motivation for getting to the barre at 6am every day even on my days off {especially on my days off} is waning. Sooo, to put more oomph! under my {sore, but mostly lifted} seat, I've compiled a list of motivational tidbits to help even the purest of Pure Barre Addicts set their {my} tired eyes back on the prize. Leading into my number one motivational factor:
