Yoga Hooky

I miss the stillness

I have been very spotty with my yoga classes. Being a one-car family does that to a person. Looking forward to having a car back again.

The Morning After

The best part about working out has got to be the morning after. Friends, my abs are so sore it hurts to sneeze. In the States, I have spring and autumn allergies; here it is summer that makes me Sneezy. I forgot to take medication yesterday so this morning I have been sniffling and sneezing- and every single sneeze makes me clutch my abs in delighted pain. I may be far from a six pack, but every aching sneeze reminds me that- at least yesterday- I did my part. At least yesterday, I killed it. 

Hello! I am still here! We moved into our new house and our furniture should be arriving in the next week or so. I am so looking forward to normal routine! I love our new house and all the shops & farmers market (twice a week!) that is walking distance from my front door; however, it is a good 20 minute drive from the nearest gym. Uhgh. I went this morning and did 15 minutes of cardio, 10 minutes of weights, and 30 minutes of abs. I tried this hanging crunch machine and it was awesome. I have a new favorite exercise. On a side note, the showers at this gym are wonderful- I like them better than my shower at home!Breed: Hanging Tree

I am dog-sitting for a friend for a few weeks. The dog is medium/large and a sweet heart. He and I have
been walking several miles each day. Other than that, my fitness has really declined. I haven’t put on weight (I think all the walking is helping) but I am not in a workout regime that I am comfortable with. I think I am going to have to start working out at home like I used too.

Oh, did I mention my new house has an apple tree? It has an apple tree. I picked about a dozen last night and tomorrow I am making “healthy” apple crisp muffins. And some chicken pot pie. Because I have a craving.

Yoga tonight! I packed yoga clothes so I could work nearby today and be close to my yoga class (it’s at the gym I went to this morning) to save myself the 20 minute drive.
