DAY FIVE: Exhale Boston
Core Basics: still hard! YOGA - YanaPrayu 2/3 Good thing I’d warmed up in Core! Because there was no warm-up for Yoga. And before I knew it, my shoulders were under my knees and my feet were in the air, I was crowing up a storm, and tripod head-standing (shakily!). Great class and still in love with that dark lit studio. (DAY SIX = day off! & DAY SEVEN = New Year’s Day yoga +...
This year I’m serious about my resolution to go to the gym. Last year I only...– Text of today’s Wall Street Journal cartoon, submitted by Dad (Thanks Dad!)
fitnotfat: Like everyone and their mother (really…my mother emailed me to echo these sentiments herself) work this week is boring. Like, fall asleep sitting up at my desk boring. I can only surf the web so much before wanting to chew on something. Hence the birth of this blog. And this post. I am trying to avoid going to check out the chocolate donuts in the kitchen or walking to Rite Aide to...
MOTIVATION: one big happy family on TLC.
I LOVE this show. For a few reasons: 1. They’re real people on a quest to get healthy. 2. This is one of the most loving families you’ll find on TV today. 3. They’re a black family with their very own show. 4. It’s inspirational whether you’re 150 pounds of 400 pounds.
MOTIVATION: NEW RUNNERS!! (my favorite)
m-a: for all you runners out there… I want to start running in the new year. I have slowly started out by walking and increasing to eventually running for 5 mins. I’ve never been a runner but I want to be. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to train etc? Saying “I’m not a runner” only means that RIGHT NOW you might not run on a regular basis. But if you want to...

MOTIVATION: just do it.
From FITsugar: I bet you can think of many reasons why you should exercise, but some days, well, you just don’t feel like it. Nobody is in the mood to work out every time we’re supposed to, because it’s hard work. It requires effort to gather up your gear and head to the gym. If you’re not feeling very motivated, it’s easy to be lazy on the couch and skip out on the...
