Name: Em Lo Porto
Age: 31 and 3/4 :)
Occupation: I work full time in marketing and business development for an architectural project management firm! Say that five times fast. I am a momma of two gals (6 years old and 15 months) who I get to see a lot of since I work from home part-time. I have been married to my kickass dh for 8 years!
Fun Stuff: I have been blogging for about seven years though it is getting increasingly difficult to keep my current blog, Ribollita Reboiled, active with my growing girls. I grew up in the home of two countrified-environmental activists (nope not an oxymoron), lived in Italy, was a classical ballerina in a small dance company, used to teach Pilates and am steeped in all things South Louisiana, my home; all of this inspires most of my writing and who I am.
*one more fun fact* Emily is Power Pilates certified in mat and apparatus. We are Classical Pilates sisters! How cool!
|With a face like this, you can get away with just about anything!|
Start your day with a simple vinyasa, like a Sun Salutation. Encourage family participation if you cant go solo. Only spend about 15 minutes on this. Just wake up dem bones.If it's a weekend, grab your family up and hit the road. By foot! Pick a place about 2.5 miles away as your destination, and try to make it non-food related like a cool playground or store just to browse. Encourage big kids to walk. Let your firecrackers run a few yards ahead and then back again. Time them. And then you do the same!On weekdays (just after the wee one starts her nap if you've got one) grab your mat again for some Pilates mat work. Again I only spend 15 minutes here, but I'm choosing quality over quantity, checking my form, balance, breath, and really focusing on my core.
