What Is Your Fitness Minute Minimum a Week?
My minimum is supposed to be 150 minutes a week, but that exploded to 400 to 700 minutes a week after getting my groove. This week, I only managed to go to two yoga classes and one insanity class, and I had to rest more than I planned. In fact... Read more
Had to Rest This Week
Even though yoga is very gentle, I took rest days in-between workouts. In general, I am doing less fitness than I was this summer, but I must be overdoing it because I started getting weird foot and hip pain. Too many downward dogs, maybe. I ... Read more

Yoga is Exercise! Yoga IS Exercise!

When You Get so Active You Start Falling Asleep at the Nail Shop . . .
This weekend was intense and carried over to today in terms of activity. I was at the nail shop and was falling asleep, so I had to think back on why I was so tired.

I Was Going for an Hour Wak and Made the Insanity Class Instead
Quick blog post because I am ironing my kid's uniforms for the week and doing chores. I feel like I worked out my body well this week, even though I had to do 30 minutes in the morning and had to finish working out in the evening.

Feeling the Work Outs and Back to Unwanted Low Caloric Averages

Tonight, my son and I have insanity work out class. Then, I may stay for yoga, bu... Read more
Did 60 minutes of cardio and 10 of ST and the hotel. The family didn't fall apart.
I am so blessed to have a supportive husband who watches the kids. I ended up not going to the pool because I started my period (which is awful, awful, awful this month), so I worked out instead. I snuck in some ST and stretched out.

Dragging My Butt, but Still Worked Out This Morning and Am Going to the Gym in a Couple of Hours.
This morning, I was dragging my butt because I stayed up watching The Good Witch, which is not the most compelling show. However, I still woke up at 6a.m. and power walked very badly. I did ST with my resistance bands, and I only 1 rep per mus... Read more
