April Showers…

Bring May Flowers?




Happy Friday!

Only 1 more day til I get to see Leah! :)

Last night I spent a few hours working on Glo Bakery stuff and I needed a break from the computer! I told myself I would only do 5 mins. on the treadmill, and that turned into 30!

Last night’s workout:

  • 30 mins. treadmill
  • Incline 10%, speed 3.8 mph
  • Max Heart rate: 143 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 124 bpm
  • Feel the burn: 183 kcals

After my cardio I decided to hit the floor for some yoga poses!

I did the Camel Pose:



As well as the Bow Pose:

Taking pictures is a great way to see your form and where you need to improve!


I think my favourite pose out of all of the ones I have done so far is the Camel Pose. It just feels sooo good on the back!

I also discovered last night that I enjoy yoga much more when I am NOT following along with a DVD. Weird, huh? When I have poses to pick and choose from I enjoy it much more. I guess that is because I have more freedom to follow my heart instead of doing things that I may not enjoy.

Today’s Question: What is your favourite Yoga Pose? What is your least favourite?

I absolutely hated the downward facing dog when I started. I am slowly starting to like it more as I get more flexible. I still can’t put both feet on the ground though!

I do think I am getting more flexible slowly but surely though.

Untitled-51 Day 8 (April 3rd): I want you to try 3 Yoga poses from Yoga Journal. Extra bonus points if you have never done them before! Even if you despise the ground that yoga walks on I want you to give this challenge a shot. If anything it will be a great stretch that you normally wouldn’t have done!

Also pick 2 exercises featured on my post here and do 2 sets of each as many reps as you can do!

How is everyone doing with the OSG BBBC Challenge? Drop a line and let me know! Also, if you have any suggestions for daily challenges I would love to hear them!

fixups FYI: I have updated the nutritional information on all of my bars in Glo Bakery. The nutritional info is no longer in a link, but I included it directly on the page. I think it is better this way!

I’m off to try to make a Jocolat bar! :)

Also coming up today a chocolate cake made with…BEETS!

See you later!

i love camel pose, too!

I always feel weird in it, but “dead bug” pose feels so great on my hips.

I can’t wait to see the jocalat bar try!

lol Oh downward dog . . . I’m trying to convince myself that I’m getting closer to being able to put my heels on the ground.

In reality I’m not so sure! ;)

Sooo much rain here – I hope that the May flowers come soon.

**My favorite yoga pose = twisting half-moon

**Least favorite yoga pose = temple pose

Pigeon pose without a doubt and down dog feels awesome after running.

I am not big on the warrior poses.


Mara @ What's For Dinner? April 3, 2009 at 10:36 am

I’m not big on yoga, but when I do any of it, i LOVE the warrior poses.

I guess I love child’s pose because I could take a nap in it. Other than that, (along with dancing and chocolate), I do not like Yoga. I also dislike downward dog because it hurts my swimmy shoulders. :(

Onto more positive things – not sure if you saw it, but last week I did a post on how my roll moved! (The title of the post is “Progress!!!”) When you started the BBBC challenge, I took it as my cue to intensify my attempts to get healthy and in-shape, so all of the challenges you’ve been posting have been a fabulous jumping-off point for me. I’m pretty sure I lost a pound this week. Woot!

I can’t for the life of me balance through the tree pose and feel awkard in downward dog… My favorite right now is the bow pose!


Bec April 3, 2009 at 11:57 am

Run sarah April 3, 2009 at 12:38 pm

I love the pictures you post of the area around your house. It looks so beautiful! I am so jealous of all the wonderful looking hiking trails you have right around the corner from your condo. Lucky!
