My yoga mat went with me to West Chester …

and came home having never come out of my suitcase. I received a mini stepper for Christmas from Curt. So for the days when I am too lazy to go to the gym or when I want a little extra workout I have my mini stepper to do some cardio while watching TV. I am […]


Lazy Christmas morning

I had planned to do some yoga here at home this morning. But I decided to be lazy and enjoy my morning on the computer drinking coffee instead. 🙂 I did go to the gym yesterday after work. I got to the gym about 1 p.m. and pounded away on the elliptical for an hour. […]


Wonderful way to start a Monday, which is really a Wednesday …

well, I only have three days of work this week. So today is Wednesday for me, right? Anyway, had yoga this morning. We had a sub named Brian. (Oh, the teacher who has taken over the classes, Sarah, is really great.) Brian was really good, too. There were only two of us in class. He […]


A nice way to start the workweek, even if it is Monday

Went to yoga this morning. Man, that alarm went off way too soon it seemed. But I got myself up and off to yoga at the gym. The kinda new teacher who instructs the Monday and Wednesday morning classes is just OK. She isn’t horrible. But she isn’t great either. She does a great job […]


6 times

My goal every week is to workout six times a week. Usually it is more like four to five times. But this past week I worked out six times: Monday: yoga Tuesday: yoga Wednesday: yoga Thursday: kickboxing Friday: yoga Saturday: spin; abs/core My normal sked is 3 yoga classes a week and 3 cardio: kickboxing, […]


What a wonderful way to end the workweek

I attended my regular yoga class tonight with Suraya. She is such a great and caring yoga instructor. It’s at 5:30 on Fridays. Which is great because it gets me out of work at a decent hour. But I am starting to miss the class at times because sometimes I have something planned. At the […]


New yoga teacher is great

I haven’t been able to attend my regular Tuesday afternoon yoga classes lately. We have a new teacher. I really liked Suraya. But I have to say Sean is a great teacher. I like his style. His class was challenging and a great workout. I was trying to convince him to take over the Friday […]


One-on-one yoga

I almost didn’t go to yoga this morning. But I thought I need to go. Get up! So I did. (Oh, and last night I finally–after months and months–went back to kickboxing. Man, it was tough. A co-worker, Kim, joined me, which made it a little easier.) There is this yoga sub at my gym […]


I’ve Got You Babe

While I was in the locker room this morning getting dressed after my yoga class this song was playing. I have to say that is not a very gym-like working out, sweating song. Weird.


About a year now

So about a year ago I started working out (first in the gym at work). For a month I walked about 3-4 times a week. Then in April I started the walk/run thing. My goal was to be able to run for 30 mins straight–because it is easy cardio and you can do it anywhere. […]
