But First Barre... then Coffee

It's no secret that I'm hooked on barre classes (you can find my comparison of Barre3 and Bar Method here), and I also have a strong love for fun graphic tees. Throw in my love for coffee, and I'm sold!

Keeping up with barre throughout my pregnancy has been an amazing experience. But let me tell you dragging myself to class during the 1st trimester nausea and exhaustion was no joke! However, once I was there I was so glad I forced myself, and I always felt so much better once class was over. I truly believe that staying fit and active has helped me keep a lot of symptoms away (or minimal) such as swelling, back pain, and trouble sleeping. And cute workout clothes make it even more fun to get motivated and get to class.

  5. That is so awesome you have been sticking with barre throughout your pregnancy. A girl at my pure barre was literally doing the class until the week before she had the baby!! You're right, it totally helps when you have cute clothes and I'm obsessed with this top! Love it!

  46. Love this. I wish I would have been more active with my first pregnancy. It was really tough but my second was much easier and I was able to stay more fit. I did ballet for many years and this is such a a great idea!
