Half garbage (yes that’s what it’s called and it’s delicious) half margarita with a side of chicken parm 🤷🏼♀️ Last night I went on a double date to @comedycellarusa (one of my fav third date activities) After the show we were all hungry and discussing where to eat when we walked by @deninos_greenwichvillage - my friend was #glutenfree so we first had to make sure they served gluten free pizza and pasta (they do! ) It’s super casual with affordable prices, a great wine selection and perfect salads/pizzas. Denino’s is your GV 💏🍕🍷 #NYCDATENITE
Winter is coming! Are you ready for the first snow? 🌨 #nyclives

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting my first ever career seminar telling my story, from corporate to self employed entrepreneur and influencer. I was humbled by the supportive and eager girls who attended and took notes. I met lovely women from all different career paths and stories, many of whom I can’t wait to connect with further. It made even me realize how far I’ve some. We can hustle every day, but it still isn’t until we take a moment to stop and look ourselves in the mirror hat we see the progress we’ve made. You are our own worst critics. I never see success and growth in myself .... until I look back and say “hey, I didn’t even realize as it happened, but I’m not that girl anymore!” It’s called growth and I crave it. After a few tougher weeks, I’m back to feeling FATALE. Thank you @barley for having us and @bonlook for the gift bags. Who wants to see more of these seminars happening .... maybe one in Toronto?

2003:Told I wasn’t a D1 athlete, played 4 years as a walk on at a D1 school earning a scholarship my senior year.⚡️2007:Told you are crazy for moving to NYC, it’s so hard.10 years later, I love my career+make a living doing what I set out to do.⚡️2009: I start to feel like the city is too much, that voice was right, I give notice at my job, decide to move to CT, 1 week before moving I change my mind and decide at that moment it’s for me+I can. I do.⚡️2012: Audition at a top spin studio in NYC, was told I was not peppy enough, didn’t get the job. My insecurities of group fitness were then solidified, kind of.⚡️2014:Explore group fitness again+begin working within companies turning offices into studios+continue to do so across NYC while pitching my vision.⚡️2015: Create Elise’s Bodyshop with the intent to inspire, connect+motivate a wider audience.⚡️2017: Audition to be an instructor for a live streaming workout.I was turned down and told I was a strong candidate but not selected.Felt that insecurity thing kick in but I talked it down. •Added another group fitness class to my schedule that rocks. 2018: A full year teaching at Google with classes reaching capacity 5 mins before the class starts+ my business continues to grow. Asked to be on a panel with industry leaders discussing women’s empowerment in fitness+in front of those who at one point told me I wasn’t the right fit. ⚡️Why do I share this? Because the paths will always be changing + unpredictable.What we can control is how we handle adversity+ the decision to continue to work forward with a positive outlook+strength. Regardless of where you currently stand, believe in yourself, believe in your power. No one helped me in this journey, instead I have this fire within me that only elevates when told no. To all of you questioning your current place, self worth, fearing rejection, whatever it may be, know that we are ALL challenged every day, yet it’s how we rise above. Overcoming adversity is what sets us apart. Hurdling roadblocks is just part of the journey. To everyone who has told me no, I stand here telling myself yes. You are your power.⚡️ Post revisit inspired by late night conversations. ⚡️
SO FUN having @maddztaddz ride tonight! When I rode in Boston with Maddy she had me ride podium, so I got to return the favor 😘 If you’re ever in Boston, catch this rave queen on a bike and you’ll be forced to sweat glitter. Love you Maddy thanks for coming by and hanging with the squad 💛💛💛

Got all up in the nosebleeds to geek out over astrobiology with my boyfriend @neildegrassetyson. New thing learned tonight: “octopuses” would be a realistic macro life form found on another planet — if macro life forms exist at all. 🐙 @startalkradio
Any of you ever take yourself out on a date??
I began dating myself a couple years ago, and let me tell you, it’s amazing.
One of the best self-love practices.
And the love grows!
It got more comfortable the more we did it. (We?? Lol!)
But seriously. It is We. My human self (Me) and my higher self (My self that knows unconditional love and the one who like, truly knows who I am). .
I’ve gotten to know that higher part of me. And she is a stunning soul to mingle with.
I want pizza and wine and kind words? Sweet nothings? She delivers! Every time!
Building a strong relationship with you is everything.
You can’t love another completely if you don’t love you. 💋
