So, I have to ask you the simple question – what did you do to make yourself feel good today? I’ll start – after work, I rallied to my gym (LA Fitness) and went for my most favorite spin class with Jay [spin instructor extraordinaire]. 28 miles later and over 400 calories burned, I feel amazing. 

It’s about pushing yourself to your limits, trying new things, and putting the pedal to the metal [quite literally]! 

I chose fitness as my ‘feel good’ thing today – now it’s your turn – Leave your comments below! 

 

PS – Make sure you listen to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke while getting your fitness on! 

The Story on Lahotski

ImageFor starters, Lahotski is my last name pronounced exactly like it’s spelled…LA HOT SKI. I came to terms with my last name from a theatre class at Penn State University when everyone just started to call me that – and I liked it. 

I was born and raised in Scranton, PA. Ventured off to Penn State’s main campus at the age of 19 – graduated – and a year later and made it out to Los Angeles where I spent 8 incredible years. During that time, I dated up a storm, met so awesome people (as well as some idiots) and started on my journey of adulthood. I went through many jobs learning that the entertainment industry is not so fun and wound up in marketing.  Don’t worry, I’m still in marketing and I love it. I also drank [alcohol] a lot – which became a problem while I was dating and working. 

Approximately 3 years ago, I decided to become sober. I changed my job of 4 and a half years, moved apartments, and got a Prius. This began my road to recovery and who I am today. I was and am inspired by many along the way – the first being Gabrielle Bernstein – then Marianne Williamson, and Michael Beckwith, and many more. I’m fully on a spiritual path and am determined to make spirituality cool. 

Right now, I stand tall – I love my life, my family, my boyfriend, my friends and my spirituality! Don’t worry – you’ll learn more about me soon enough – but consider this the preface. 

I’m eco friendly, fitness-savvy, beauty-product lovin’, fashion-foward and a true Spirit Junkie [as Gabby Bernstein would call it]!
