More Yoga!!!! This is part two to my Yoga VLOG ventures! I'm a bit more shaky in this one, but I enjoyed these exercises so much. I will say that my balance STINKS-It always has. I am really trying to improve that stinky balance, all the time. I really get into this side of it with the leg extensions. Wanna improve strength and flexibility? Gotta try some Yoga.....

This is my first Vlog ever! I am a total Yogi, and thought it might be interesting to see how I look when I am practicing a routine. I picked a routine that I have NEVER done before, so this will not be perfect, BUT isn't that what makes life REAL? Enjoy me looking as graceful as an elephant . Get ready to see my "nerdiness" and hear southern accent
This routine and many other's are free on Hulu.
There were some weird moments here, and I have 3 more video's that actually finish the routine. I made this video to be REAL and not perfect, so don't expect anything I do to be "spot on". i actually adjusted the camera and some items on the other video's so they won't look the same.
We are all here for REAL motivation and not gimmicks right?
If nothing else you will get a few laughs out of my weirdness. Jack my kittah had a cameo as well :) Yeah, that black lump in the chair is Jack, he will eventually jump down.

So last week I cleaned my bedroom, and I found an unused gift card from Target ,and I thought to myself, "Hmm... What will I do with this?". Needless to say, I had been wanting to buy a balance ball for some time now, and I knew that it was high time that I done so! So without further adieu, here is my workout on my new bouncy ball :). The ball came with a workout DVD, and resistance band so that was super cool! Never mind the awkwardness, LOL I was focused (most of the time)....
Sporting the excitement, that is the Blue Ball!
I must admit that I was actually afraid that I would pop this thing! As you can see, the fear went away quickly!!!!! Gotta start out with some good stretching!
Getting into it with some simple crunches!
Working those Arms!
And now comes the BUSINESS!
My Abs are a BURNIN!
Now for the REAL DEAL! Double crunches and leg raises!
I love this angle!!
Now for Swimming...
Don't laugh, it ain't easy, ok go ahead and laugh- I did after falling off the ball many times!!
Now for some silly time!! Time for the "GUN" show!!
And what does my cat do this whole time he is in the same room with me???
LAZY, LAZY, LAZY!!
I had a blast with my new toy, and it REALLY added another dimension to my ST Mondays!!!
If you don't already have one, you so gotta go get one!!!! This thing rocks!!!
Stupid iPhone has rotated the pictures, sorry about the perspective ya'll.

So this week has been a tough one for me. Everything pretty much came to a grinding ! I was so weak and tired that I could barely function let alone exercise. I didn't even bother with taking time to fix meals. I haven't been so tired in over a year.
I cannot begin to tell you how long I slept last week. I know that Monday I slept a normal 8 hours, got up ate breakfast, took a two hour nap, got up ate lunch, and took a 21/2 hour nap. It was bad. I knew something was up because not only was I exhausted but I was also feeling light- headed.
I finally went to the doctor because I thinking that it had been a few months since I had my Vitamin B12 injection. i then realized that I also have a Vitamin D deficiency along with the B12, and Iron.
I was told to to eat a little more and back off the exercise. ARE YOU SERIOUS? EAT MORE AND STOP EXERCISING?! That is so not what I wanted to hear!
These vitamins are essential to having a strong functioning body and brain. The lack of B12 was causing tingling and neurological issues.
The Vitamin D Deficiency was what was making me want to sleep constantly.
So I got the B12 infusion, and picked up some Vitamin D supplements. My hubby also bought Vitamin D milk for me to drink. I know this is a good thing but I do worry about the fat content.
I have managed to let this go, and take good care of myself this week. I have not exercised ANY this week, and I gave myself a few " free" days. I did not go crazy, but I noticed that when I ate more (especially protein), that I felt a lot better.
Now, that I am feeling better, I am going to get back on track, but I'm revamping my daily calories up a bit until I get back up to speed.
As for the Vitamin D, lets see, drink vitamin D milk, and get some sun. You mean to tell me that I just need to lay out? Yeah, I think I can handle that!
