Fun fact: Static electricity gathers at ESB high heights, and under the right atmospheric conditions, couples can experience a slight electric shock when they kiss.

Would you believe this trip was both Jordan’s and my first time to Mexico?

Being so close to Canada, Mexico is usually a default location for Canadians to flee to during the winter months, so I can’t believe it took me almost 29 years to go there myself! Although we plan to return to Mexico many more times to explore even more, I have received quite a few questions and DMs regarding where we were, where we stayed, and how we liked it!

So, keeping with the theme of yesterday’s post — I plan to add Isla Mujeres, Mexico to my list of pending blog posts. If you have any burning questions you’d like me to cover, be sure to leave them in the comments below 👇🏼🇲🇽

Things I said JUST 22 weeks ago...⁣

🔴 I can’t ever be the same size I was before babies.⁣

🔴 I don’t have time to workout all the time.⁣

🔴 I can’t afford a gym membership/personal trainer. Plus, where would the kids go?⁣

🔴 Who cares if I feel sluggish and like a mombie all the time (mom zombie).⁣

🔴 It’s fine I’m surviving off coffee and Starbucks double shots.⁣

THEN I was reintroduced to my workout programs that I can do from home, super short, comes with a nutrition plan and meal replacement shake — it was the perfect combo for me. ⁣

I could easily afford it ☑️ ⁣
It only required 30 minutes per day ☑️ ⁣
It was like having my own personal trainer - just in my living room ☑️ ⁣
No need for child care ☑️ ⁣
I can do it while they’re awake or do a quick workout while they nap ☑️⁣

Now I’m not going to pretend every single day is easy peasy. There are of course days I dread working out. But I push play anyways and it’s over so fast. I KNOW I love the feeling afterwards that it makes it worth it every single time! ⁣

My February challenge group opens up soon and I’d love for you to join me! We will focus on your nutrition 🥦🥕🍓🍇 and select a workout program for you to commit to! 💪🏼⁣

Drop an emoji or message me if you’d like to reserve your spot! 💗💗💗

📍 #Modica #duomosangiorgio


Il duomo di San Giorgio è la chiesa madre o duomo della città di Modica che si staglia in altura, con tutta la sua imponenza, dominando tutta la cittadina.
Come tante altre chiese tardo barocche della Val di Noto anche quella di San Giorgio, così come ci appare oggi, è il risultato della ricostruzione dopo sisma del 1693. La sua origine è in parte oscura: si hanno notizie dell’esistenza di un edificio già nell’Alto Medioevo che poi venne distrutto nell’845 da parte degli arabi.
La chiesa fu poi ricostruita per volere del Conte Ruggero e affidata alle cure dell’abate Umberto, che la inaugurò tra il 1120 e il 1140. La prima fonte certa che parla dell’esistenza di questa chiesa è una bolla pontificia del 1150 di papa Eugenio III.
Nel 1643, in seguito ad uno dei tanti terremoti che colpirono la zona, si ritenne necessario un radicale intervento nella chiesa; l’incarico del rifacimento venne affidato a Frate Marcello da Palermo dei Minori Riformati di San Francesco. Molto probabilmente non si trattò di una ricostruzione totale ma di una trasformazione. In seguito, il sisma del 1693 intaccò gravemente l’edificio danneggiando molte strutture, avviando così la fase ricostruttiva post terremoto.
La chiesa di San Giorgio è quindi il risultato di più secoli di trasformazioni. Gli interventi più consistenti, sia per quanto riguarda l’esterno che le decorazioni interne, sono stati completati tra fine Ottocento e i primi del Novecento.

L’attuale chiesa è sicuramente l’esemplificazione della teatralità barocca a cui contribuiscono sia la scelta strategica della posizione che la spettacolare scalinata.
Posta tra la parte alta e la parte bassa della città, in posizione scenografica e con il prospetto rivolto verso occidente, è l’architettura più imponente di Modica e di tutta la Sicilia sud-orientale.
Una massiccia ed elegante scalinata monumentale, con i suoi ben 260 gradini intervallati e circondati da giardinetti, precede la svettante facciata barocca della chiesa e crea un’ambientazione scenografica singolare. ⠀
