yoga

I've decided I just need to update my blog during my lunch hour, cause I swear that by the time I get home in the evening I have lost all the wind in my sails to do ANYTHING. So here I am.

I've started going to yoga! I hear that Leann Rimes does yoga and she is most definitely my "I-want-HER-body" celebrity. See what I mean?? [I realize I will never look like her...but it motivates me when I workout, ha!]

So, yoga. The first time I went I was a little skeptical cause when I think of yoga, I think of...weird stuff. Like, meditation, sitting cross-legged and trying to reach a "higher plane" or something goofy like that.

Well, hells bells, this yoga was TOUGH. Kid you not, I was so sweaty and just cashed at the end of the session. Turns out the class is called "Power Yoga/Pilates". That would explain it. At any rate, I loved it and really felt like I got a great workout. I had sore muscles in places that never get sore when I workout!

Excited for the weekend! I have a hair appointment tonight - thank GOD - and we're probably going out tomorrow to our favorite bar in town. Brad and I are going to do some cross country skiing tomorrow, which should be fun as long as I don't die. If you ever want a workout where you feel like you're going to literally fall over and die in the first 10 minutes, try XC skiing! Promise, it will kill you until you finally get a little more comfortable. I haven't skiied since last year so I'm really looking forward to it. Sarcasm. No, really, I am...just have to resign myself to skiing alone at a turtle's pace for 2 hours cause God knows my incredibly skilled husband won't wait around for me!

  1. Yoga is hard! And don't even get me started on Pilates! I'm the girl who can't touch her toes- and it kills me because there are 50 year old women rocking it!

  2. Did Pilates every day when I lived in DC and loved it! It does really work, too. Don't think I could do half of them now! :)

  3. Didn't we have an argument like 3 years ago when I said Leann was pretty and you stood by the fact that she was super man-ish looking? :)
