Who says you can't do hot yoga at home??
I'm trying to run every other day until I feel like I can add a couple more days each week. Saturday was just a little hike with Lucy dog. I wore my traction aids from Yo Momma Runs on my running shoes for the hike and they stayed on much better than before. It took a while to find the right grooves on the bottom of my shoes to slide the rubber bands (not sure how else to describe them) into but once I did, it was great to have them on. I could step with reckless abandon. Well, I could of if not for the steep drop offs to the frozen creek below.
Yesterday I decided to give my legs a break from running on slippery pavement and take it to the treadmill. I brought my laptop to the basement and watched an episode of The Office while I ran (heaven forbid I go 20 minutes without being completely entertained. I couldn't hear the computer over the sound of the treadmill and I couldn't get close enough to plug my headphones in. Not a problem because I have seen this season so many times that I already know what they are saying. Music via headphones + watching the office = tolerable 2 mile treadmill run. Let me give you a visual of my classy set-up (do you know where your nearest fire extinguisher is at all times?):
I followed the run up with some hot yoga. In my home. If you think you need to go to a fancy studio, you are wrong. All you need is to put your mat beside your 1930s heater and have your upstairs neighbors control the heat. Bam, sweaty mess.
I know it looks like my yoga instructor via dvd looks like she is bustin out a move in the club. Lucy did join me for yoga, as usual:
Last night Frank and I watched a documentary called Hungry for Change which Sarah posted about a couple days ago. Sad news, it is largely about how sugar is bad, bad for you. Happy news, I needed to hear it. It also talked about loving and affirming yourself and I always eat that stuff up :) The film did turn into an infomercial for juicing at one point, which I didn't 100% buy. Jury's still out on that one for me. Overall I think Hungry for Change had an important message about how so much of our food is engineered chemical stuff and the only "diet" you need is to eat real food and love yourself/others.
What is your go-to, makes-you-laugh TV show?
Have you seen Hungry for Change? Other documentary suggestions?
Any experiences juicing??
