I'm a 26 year old mother of twin boys, born 10/26/11.

I've always been a higher weight than I've wanted to be, and with the weight I put on while pregnant with my twins, I reached a dreaded number for me... 300 pounds. While I lost most of the pregnancy weight, I'm still hovering around that mark, and it's a place I simply don't want to be.

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU

This Friday is International Star Wars Day, so celebrate with ... yup, you are reading this right... YOGA. And not just any yoga... STAR WARS YOGA. Oh yes. "Much to learn you still have...my old padawan. ... This is just the beginning!"

How fabulous is that??

So if you're not a Star Wars fan (and really, how could you not be?)... here's the back-info:

"May 4 is called Star Wars Day (also sometimes known as Luke Skywalker Day) because of the popularity of a common pun spoken on this day.... "May the fourth be with you".

'May the Force be with you' was a phrase used to wish luck or good will, generally when individuals parted ways or the object of the expression was facing some sort of imminent challenge. The phrase implied the speaker's wish that the power of the Force would be working alongside the addressee, in order that the addressee's goals would be more effectively accomplished.... Current day Star Wars fans were not the first to introduce the line "May the Fourth Be with You"; When Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain's first female Prime Minister on May 4, 1979, her party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News that said: "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations."

In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada [YAY, TORONTO!!] at the Toronto Underground Cinema.... The second annual edition is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 4, 2012.

If you need a little more motivation today, look no farther than wise, old Yoda:

"Always pass on what you have learned."

"Named must your fear be before banish it you can."

"You will find only what you bring in."

"When 900 years old you reach, look as good you will not ehh." - Yoda

and of course, the most famous and wisest of all Yoda-isms:
"Try not. Do or do not, there is no try."

and now... for this laugh-out-loud commercial break...

We really do need some Storm Trooper or lightsaber emoticons... sigh.

This coming Tuesday, May 1st, is the celebration of May Day.  This day has been adopted several times over for different purposes and may be called by different names so no matter what you celebrate;

May you find happiness and health
May you receive help when you need it
May you laugh every day
May you find and keep love 
May you feel light and inspired
May you be respected and valued
May your wishes come true
May you be a bright and shining fire to others
May you experience beauty and bliss
May you be nourished and cherished
May you look in the mirror and find no faults, no insecurities, and no fears,
for you are beautiful and confident, strong and brave.

The History of May Day: 

"Etymologically, [May Day] is a homophone (same sounding word) for the international call for help. It is a corruption of the French imperative “M’aidez” meaning “Help me!” As a holiday it is claimed by many. It is known in the pagan world as Beltane, a fertility celebration... Beltane is the day of fire commemorating Bel or Belenos, the Celtic sun god. Indeed, in the modern Irish language, Bealtaine is the name for the month of May. The early Anglo-Saxons began their celebration on the eve before, feasting the end of winter and the first planting. It was a time of revelry and abandon... But this day’s celebration of the revival of vegetation goes back to the Roman practice of visiting the grotto of Egena. The people of ancient Rome honored Flora, the goddess of flowers and springtime.

"...In America: The Puritans frowned on May Day, so the day has never been celebrated with as much enthusiasm in the United States... But the tradition of celebrating May Day by dancing and singing around a maypole, tied with colorful streamers or ribbons, survived as a part of the English tradition. The kids celebrating the day by moving back and forth around the pole with the the streamers, choosing of May queen, and hanging of May baskets on the doorknobs of folks -- are all the leftovers of the old European traditions."

"In 1886 it was co-opted as an international workers day to celebrate the 8-hour workday movement, following national strikes in the US and Canada. Later, the French declared May 1 the International Working Men’s Association holiday in 1889."
