26 Weeks to Change – Day 11: Starting to Feel the “Yoga Burn”

Yoga 4

Yoga Inspiration: This side crow pose is awesome!

Ok so “burn” may not be the right word, but after this morning’s workout, I definitely feel the muscles in my shoulders and upper back!

Today’s workout was Yoga Foundations With Travis Eliot – Class 1.

It’s the perfect blend of introduction for the newbie, gentle instruction, and challenge for the beginner.

It in no way raises the heartrate, but that’s not my chief goal at the moment.

  • Healing my right ankle,
  • developing the ability to focus, and
  • having greater self-awareness are what I want to accomplish through yoga.

I know it won’t happen overnight, but I do plan on seeing some positive changes (internally) in the next couple weeks.

Oh yeah, and I had a salad for breakfast to make up for some of my naughty eating habits yesterday.

That’s all for now.

Ciao Bella!

62 Days to Change: Day 11 – Weekend Laxness

Grocery Shopping

Grocery Shopping: This is what I was doing at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning…I avoid the crowds this way:)

I woke up this morning really early to do my grocery shopping.

I’m talking about 5:30a.m, so I could be out the house by 6 a.m. to grocery shop.

Yeah, I know that’s super early but I had a lot of shopping to do and I like to go to the grocery store when there are relatively few people and no crying, screaming kids about.

I got up, refined my grocery list, grabbed my coupons and was out the door!

I finished my shopping and was back in the house with everything put away by 8a.m.

Since I was still so tired, I climbed back in the bed for a couple more hours of shut eye.

Well that was all great, but it threw my timing off for tasks I needed to complete for the remainder of the day.  With that being said, I didn’t workout today.

No harm, no foul.  I’m just moving forward.

Anywhoo, I think my body needed the rest.  Besides from the fact it was a beautiful Saturday, I was able to relax and enjoy the work I had to do.

I’ll be back at it again tomorrow:)
