Worcester friends – what are your memories of Institute Park? Bob See and I went there today for a delightful walk! We saw red-winged blackbirds, Canada geese, mallards, but no wood ducks … here’s our video!
Exercise Day #4! I planned a quick at-home workout, but Bob said after my Teen writing class, “Let’s go for a walk.”
Rule #1 when your exercise partner offers a walk in the woods – you say YES :).
Just what is a “little” Purgatory? Is it for barely-seen sins? 🙂
Exercise Day #3!! It was WAY too cold to go out, but I wanted something aerobic. I said to myself, what would my mom enjoy?
Bob and I spent a solid hour clearing out my corner of the basement which has my TV, PS2, and floor dance pad. I can once again Dance Dance Revolution!!
I then spent a non-stop hour with my favorite songs, Long Train Running, In The Navy, and The Reflex in honor of Jeanne!! So happy!
I have four different DDR game discs and I cycle through each in turn, because there are certain songs I like on each one. 9 on the first, 3 on the second (x2), 3 on the third (x2), and 3 on the fourth (x2). They ramp up in difficulty as they go.
Daily Exercise Day 2 – it is 25F outside. I am following the Kris theory of staying inside when it’s below 32F. So today I did an hour of yoga
. Both kitties helped so much with the poses. They would lie underneath me during plank so I had to hold it for longer.
Right now my body feels like a tangled cassette tape, but soon it will be a smooth-playing LP :).
What exercise did you do today?
The cyanotype is actually darker than it seems in the cat photo. It looks like this. It is a 5×7 one-of-a-kind cyanotype framed to a 10×12 frame. Available for only $40!
If anyone wants to see my full yoga routine, I have it for FREE in this book. Grab a copy and follow along!
So happy! I’ve been working on a big project to do full write-ups for each yoga pose for a new yoga website. So far I’ve gotten the first 25 poses done, covering letters A through E.
They’re pleased with my work and want me to continue on through the entire alphabet!
The kittens are quite helpful in demonstrating how easy a spinal twist pose is. Simply point the arms in one direction and the legs in another. They also like to challenge me by randomly removing various parts of the yoga mat from play. Especially when I’m up in a pose and trying to transition to another one. Have you done your yoga today? If not, roll your shoulders! Every bit helps!
Do Yoga Every Day – You don’t have to do a long two-hour yoga practice every day to get benefits. If your schedule is busy, just make time for ten minutes. Fifteen minutes. Even a few minutes of gentle yoga reaps wonderful benefits for your health. It impacts your immune system, your spine health, your levels of stress hormones in your system, and so much more.
My yoga practice today was fairly brief, as I have some pressing tasks to get done before end-of-day. Even that short time invested repays in dividends as everything else I do hums along at a solid clip.
Did you do any yoga today? Even a brief head roll? Make the time to invest in yourself!
My kittens Zuzu and Felix helped with my daily yoga session today. They especially like walking beneath me when I’m doing plank pose and sticking their tail all over my face. This helps me practice my focus and breathing. Have you done any yoga yet today? Take five minutes to stretch! #namaste
Morning yoga time. The two kittens helped by crawling in, under, and alongside poses. They have mastered the spinal twist. Did you get any stretching in yet today? Do some neck rolls! No kittens needed! 🙂
Today was my first yoga session with the kittens. They were fascinated and helped out with various poses by testing my balance. By the end I had soothed them into a snuggly sleep. #Namaste
