    Congrats to your winners!! And have a great time dancing this morning Gina! I’ve never done a ballroom dancing class but I hear good things!

    So sad I didn’t win. Maybe you have mentioned this and I missed it, but I was wondering what your new employer thought of your being pregnant, especially given that you are teaching fitness classes. (Pre-children I was a labor economist, so I actually find this kind of thing very interesting).

  6. Cait @ UrbanFencepost on June 15, 2011 at 10:03 am

    Ballroom-based dance cardio class? Sounds interesting! I took my first cardio dance class at the gym yesterday and LOVED it. I was awful and must have looked like a clown, but I was having so much FUN I didn’t care!

  29. Ana on June 15, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Hi Gina
    Did you remove the new family post? I saw it this morning on my iphone and I wanted to read it again since I LOVED it, so informative. Thank you for sharing all you did, that was super nice. I would like to read it again and would love to see if you could send me your doctor’s name. I have a 9 year old and we have been trying to have another child since my son was 4. We tried a lot of things already, including fertility treatments, and it didn’t work. I haven’t tried a naturopath or acupuncture and was really interested on your post about your success with these.
    If you are not going to post that again, would you mind at least forwarding it to me? I would love to read it again, I found the post to be super nice.
    Thank you so much, I love your blog!

    • Kimberly on June 15, 2011 at 6:49 pm

      Hello Gina,

      I too would like to read it again. I only had a chance to glance at it at work. I went through fertility treatments with no success also. Any information would be very helpful & I appreciate you sharing it with us. I am so happy for you and your husband!

    • Roni on June 15, 2011 at 8:39 pm

      I second that πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on June 15, 2011 at 9:21 pm

      i did remove it and will repost it in a few weeks after editing it. let me know if you’d like me to send it to you!

      • Brittany on June 15, 2011 at 11:26 pm

        I was very curious too, I’d very much appreciate being forwarded the post πŸ™‚

        • Fitnessista on June 16, 2011 at 12:38 am

          send me an email and i’ll copy and paste it to ya πŸ™‚

  30. mi-an on June 15, 2011 at 6:25 pm
