This and that

When I ended my cleanse a week ago I was a little worried that I would gain weight. Well, with food tasting so good. And I had some good meals the past week. Such as delicious welcome lunch on Tuesday at work; lasagna Curt got me at Market Hall the day I called in sick; […]


Unexpected relaxing yoga

  I had so many ideas swirling in my head for tonight’s post that I wasn’t sure what to write about. At first I was going to write about the 7-day super cleanse, which I will start tomorrow. But you will have to wait for that … The second possible post was to write about […]


Aligning the spine in yoga

I attended the 6 p.m. yoga class, which Baxter normally teaches. I forgot he is in Costa Rica this week for a yoga retreat. Dominick was the sub. I like Dominick’s teaching style and he is funny. But his class starts at 4:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays. So I can rarely go. But I do […]


Exercise, vegetables and dancing … oh my!

Sorry for the slacking in blogging. But rest assured I have not been slacking in the exercise or the caloric intake department. Let’s see. What have I been up to since I last blogged on Tuesday … On Wednesday I walked with some co-workers/friends. It was a small group, but we were/are fierce. The walk […]


Hurrying to relax at yoga class

I literally ran to the yoga studio tonight to make it on time to Baxter’s Hatha class. Traffic from South City to Emeryville was pretty tame, especially since there is a 49ers game tonight. But from Emeryville a drive in the evenings that normally takes me 15-20 minutes took 40 minutes tonight. I quickly changed […]


Holiday weekend full of emotions and some yoga

I started my Thanksgiving holiday weekend with a Wednesday night Hatha yoga class with Baxter. I love his energy and humor. And he gave the class a Thanksgiving theme, which made it even more fun. Thanksgiving morning Namaste Grand Lake hosted a 2-hour Day of Thanks workshop. Seventy-five people signed up. The workshop was $25 […]

It was a yoga kind of weekend

Over three days I took five yoga classes. I ¬†am definitely putting that unlimited membership to good use. Oh, and I got a second yoga bingo today. I had to turn my card in for a drawing and was given a new one. I had two yoga bingos, so I am entered in the drawing […]


Exercise is my drug of choice

I saw this on a license plate frame yesterday. It gave me a chuckle. Even though I regularly exercise, exercise is definitely not my drug of choice. Mine is probably alcohol and then high fat, high calorie food. So in the end I need exercise. One of my regular readers and good friends asked if […]
