Happy Blogiversary MOB!

Hello friends!  Guess what!?  Today My Own Balance turns two!  I can’t believe I have a toddler on my hands.

Seriously though, when I started blogging in 2012  I had no idea what it really meant to have a blog.  I just kind of saw a few other blogs and thought, “I can do that.”  I had no idea the people I’d meet and how my content would evolve and grow.  I had no clue the opportunities that this little space on the internet would open up for me.  I started My Own Balance as a way to try to find more balance in my life, which I didn’t feel like I had a lot of working in a law firm.  It was a way for me to focus on two things that I find really important: healthy living and enjoying life.  Neither of which were supposed to be a priority to me at the time.  Things have changed so much since when this blog started but one thing has stayed the same and that is my eternal gratefulness to you all for stopping by here to check out what’s going on!  

For more on my blogging story and career change, read here and here.

And because this is fun for me… I like to recap my top posts as selected by my lovely readers:

1. Barre Week- The Best At-Home Barre Workouts

2. Barre Week- The Best Barre Classes in NYC

3. Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Final Recap

4. Getting My Pilates On: Blogilates Review

5. Les Mills: The World’s Best Fitness Classes 

And a few of my favorites:

3.  The Great Barrier Reef

4. How to Start Your Own Fitness Business

    Happy birthday Brittany!!
    I love that you put up your top pins, great idea! Those will be fun to look through!

    What makes me happy?? Being outside in the morning sunrise!!! I’m about to go running at Bear Lake and while typing can see the sun highlighting the grass fields. Wow.

    Happy Blog Birthday!!!! Since starting my own, I’m always intrigued to read about the paths of more-seasoned bloggers. I’d say what makes me happy today is that our nursery-painting and crafting party was a hit last night; we got lots done, which makes life a little less-stressful for this mama 🙂 Enjoy celebrating!

    Happy blogiversary, Britt!! I didn’t know about your career background but I think it’s awesome that you’re doing something that you enjoy!

    What makes me happy today? Well, I enjoyed walking outside in the rain this morning. We’ve been dealing with a lot of heat in Seattle lately and today is the first time it rained in a while. It was nice to enjoy some fresh air instead of muggy air for once!

    WOOHOOOO, Happy Blogiversary!! I love reading your blog!

    This is going to sound a bit nutty, but we’ve had an ant problem in our new home, and a pest guy just came and sprayed all around, so the thought of no more ants is making me happy today! Haha.

    What makes me happy is having family time together. My husband works so much that during the week we hardly see him. When he’s home for more than just a couple of hours in the evening, we have so much fun 🙂

Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!

I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
JenJen
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.

My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
