An Introduction to Yoga

I've always been so fascinated with the world of yoga. The peace one seems to cultivate when wobbling on one foot and stretching their limbs toward the sky is admirable. Being someone who loses balance while walking, nevermind striking certain elongating poses, I've never been able to give yoga the chance it deserves. The only time I get close to any kind of yoga is actually just wearing the pants on my lazy days.

That being said, I think I need to give yoga a better shot than simply overlooking the dusty, old yoga video I bought when I was 13 but watched only a handful of times. On my next day off, I vow to pick out a yoga workout On Demand and sweat through that shit.

And, for now, here's a few yoga stretches I vow to do tonight, in bed, before getting some much needed beauty sleep. Full sun salutation, here I come.

Falling Off the Wagon

Well, it's happened... I can't remember the last time I've paid attention to this our little baby blog. That's what happens when you graduate college and spend the rest of your time trying to find some sort of half-decent job in your field. I think I've decided that's never going to happen, so I'm taking it easy on filling out more applications. I suppose when the time is right, it'll happen.

Anyway, speaking of falling off the wagon, I've totally bailed on my daily gym routine. I go to the gym around 2, definitely not more than 3, times a week. I admit it -- it's gotten bad. Especially when I'm trying to get dressed for work and find that I'm squeezing into my current jeans. It doesn't help to suck in and pretend I'm not getting bigger.

Well, safe to say I'm I've got to shape up for two of my best friends' weddings in 2014! It's not that it's just so I don't look like crap in my bridesmaid dresses and totally ruin the pictures of the wedding party, but I want to feel confident. I've said it before -- I'm so entirely sick of looking the way that I do. I'm running behind the wagon and I will slowly mount that bitch and take the wheel. I'm back!

A New Personal Record & A Puppy

Not to brag, but I'm kind of a big deal, guys.

Just kidding. But I have been going on short runs lately, around 15 minutes a pop, and trying to jog more than walk. On a recent run, I was really feeling it and felt that I was slacking compared to normal, but I trucked on through.

When I got home and my Run Keeper app told me that I set a new personal record, I was totally stoked! I was not expecting to have gotten a new record when halfway through I felt like I was going to puke.

Safe to say, I'm excited for my next run. Hopefully I can set another new record for myself, again! If only I can find the time...

I know, I know -- exercising doesn't take long. My runs are just shy of the time it takes for dinner to be prepared. But I've been so busy! Between working part-time (shush) and our newest little adventure, a puppy, time seems to be flying by.

Here's our family's newest bundle of joy, Piper.

At 5 months old, she is a bundle of energy. When I'm not running after her picking up her poop (sorry), I'm trying to tire her out. That counts as cardio, right?

Looks like it's time to finish my Law & Order SVU marathon, and then perhaps I'll go on a run. Tough life, huh?
