Yoga Night

I’m currently working on creating our 2 week plan for Reach the Beach. Week 1 will be the Low-Carb Week and Week 2 will be Carbo-loading. I’m including in our 2 week plan our exercise schedules and tapering schedules. It’s quite the task! I decided that I’m also going to schedule 2 days a week for yoga. No matter what. We are both pretty tight in the legs and desperately need to increase our flexibility.

Last night was our first attempt at doing yoga. I tried to find a yoga show on our On Demand but was unsuccessful so I resorted to some random yoga show on Netflix.


This was Michael’s first time doing yoga so we only did about 20 minutes of it. It was fun! I’ve taken a bunch of yoga classes over the years and once I started doing it again last night, my body seemed to remember what to do. Some of the positions were definitely difficult for us. I am glad we started now!

After yoga, I showed Michael how to do the Foam Roller. I absolutely love the Foam Roller now that I do it consistently. It feels sooo good on my legs!

For dinner we made turkey burgers on sandwich thins.

We baked a side of seasoned fries too.


Last night on Twitter was a #fitblog chat. I am always late to the game and somehow never see the reminder for #fitblog. But it was so much fun to chat with other healthy bloggers! I’m looking forward to the next chat.

QUESTION: Do you think yoga is hard? Did you participate in #fitblog chat?

  1. I’ve found a bunch of good yoga workouts on demand on ExerciseTV. For a cardio one, try Yoga Meltdown (Jillian Michaels) and then AM Yoga or Yoga for Beginners are good flow and stretching ones.

  2. I have never done Yoga before…crazy right?

  3. Your blog is definitely one of the best going around, always posting and always interesting with new topics etc.

    I’m interested to know how much of your weight loss success you believe is linked to your consistent and thorough blogging?


    • Thank you!! šŸ™‚ That’s awfully sweet. To answer your question, I started blogging AFTER I lost 100 pounds. It definitely helps me stay on track now and blogging about my health has helped me to make better choices.

  4. I’ve been meaning to get into Hot Yoga with a bunch of friends that already do it regularly, but that stuff is EXPENSIVE. I like the “stand and pose” yoga….the yoga flow is still a bit too hard for me. I’m sure when I get smaller, it will be more comfortable, but right now, I just feel awkward.

    I don’t use twitter, so I am way behind on understanding things with “#” by it. How does that work?

    • Ivie, I wanted to try a hot yoga class too but a friend discouraged me from trying it. She said it smells like “sweat and ass”. YUCK! lol

      As for Twitter, I think every Tuesdays there’s a twitter chat for healthy bloggers. The # symbol means that only those posts with #fitblog at the end of the message will show up.

  5. I just found your blog via Carrots N Cake and wanted to congratulate you on your weight loss!

    I made a batch of Turkey Burgers the other night and loved them! Wish I had thought to bring one for lunch today.
