Workout Wednesdays

Workout: 45 min Vinyasa Yoga Flow

Calories: 2300 (boo me)

Today’s workout was AWESOME. I’m really loving this online yoga thing, it really feels like I’m in a studio. The only thing that’s missing is the instructor walking by and correcting me, but I just pretend my Dulci baby is doing the same thing but giving me kisses instead. Love it.

Here’s part of the description:

Abdominal core work kicks off our strengthening practice followed by a simple warm up of backbends to Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar). Forward bends (Uttanasana), Crane/Crow (Bakhasana), Plank Variations (Vasistasana) and Warrior 2 Flow sequence (Virabhadrasana) bring suppleness to the spine and strength to the arms and core. Our peek posture is Half Moon Sugar Cane (Ardha Chandra Chapasana). With the body nicely heated we move into backbends Locust (Salabhasana), Bow (Dhanurasana), Bridge (Setu Bandhasana) and Upward Bow (Urdhva Dhanurasana). Marinate with the heart energy in a finishing hip opener of your choice!

Sometimes I feel like I need a translator, or a pocket dictionary might do. I hope eventually these pose names will make sense to me instead of just sounding like gibberish.

The day started off great, but I quickly racked up the miles and couldn’t stop. Not couldn’t, I guess, I chose not to. Girl scout cookies and tiny muffins were just too much to overcome today. Fist pump!

I have to shake it off and start anew tomorrow, I’m not waiting until next week to start. Double fist pump!

Quote of the day:

“The background harmonies were [wait for it] delicious!”

Gotta love me some Steven Tyler.

I wish they had a Steven cam at all times so we could see more of his infamous expressions. They’re so entertaining!

Are you watching American Idol? How are you liking the new judges?

Off to finish watching, and I guess “I’m more Atari”. AI can be educational too, who knew?

Many Blessings!
