We’ve been inspired by Michelle Obama since she’s been in the White House and love her focus on health and wellness. Her “Let’s Move” initiative was one of our favorites and we love seeing that she’s still dedicated to the cause.
Yesterday, she took a boot camp class with some friends and let’s just say we’re totally motivated by her. She posted some pictures on Instagram and you can see how tough this class really was, but that didn’t stop her.
When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends. It didn’t matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first. And even though I’m no longer at the White House, I’ve continued this tradition and wanted to share some photos. My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years – including a pretty big one recently! – and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together. Whether it’s a bootcamp or a walk around the neighborhood, I hope you and your crew can find some time this summer to be healthy together.
“When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends,” she wrote. “It didn’t matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first.”
Seriously, so much praise for her caption. This is such an important reminder to us that we need to make sure that self-care is always in the forefront in our lives. If anything, just do it because Michelle Obama said so.
