Wednesday, February 03, 2010      3 comments

I did yoga today as I make my transition from being awake during the day to being awake during the night. I find it calms and settles me more than anything else: strength training, swimming, or even taking a rest day. I look forward t... Read more

I led my first yoga class this morning at 5:45 a.m. To be honest, I was astonished at the number of people that turned out (about 24). Ages ranged from mid 20s to early 60s. Majority of attendees were women, however, three men also participat... Read more

I did a little yoga with Tony Horton this morning. I'm always impressed when a yoga workout can make me sweat and breathe hard, especially one that is only 48 minutes long. Swimming laps tomorrow morning....... Read more
Breakfast Front Loading
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      2 comments

I tend to eat as much as I want before noon. It helps me not feel hungry or deprived the rest of the day. Mind you, it is good food (high fiber cereal, low-fat yogurt, eggs, whole wheat bread, etc.) Today is another big breakfast ... Read more

55 laps. 169 pounds. I think most of the latter is additional water in my muscles, as I'm quite sore from doing double work-outs the last few days. Tomorrow is week #7 of P90X. ... Read more
Yoga Core

As part of my trial run as a fitness instructor for our local wellness center, I have been asked to design a yoga core workout. This is challenge for me--largely because of the 30 minute time constraint. I am also challenged by the va... Read more
