Happy Birthday to me!! Ha! 2010 is off to a great start! I brought the new year in singing at church, seeing Cece Winans perform at church, and then being surprised by my husband and our friends with a late night birthday cake and taco bar. Fabian, my husband is a wonderful chef and had to work last night. I believe we officially rung in the new year with Juno, Alaska? It’s been a pretty relaxing birthday, sleeping in a family dinner and a late night movie. Pretty awesome. I can’t believe I’m already 26. It feels like just yesterday I was starting college.

Now, down to fitness for the day. Has anyone checked out Lululemon’s blog?  I love Lululemon and am particularly excited about their Sweat Once a Day Challenge . It’s pretty simple,  not too hard right? This combined with my aspiration to deepen my yoga practice brought me to my workout this morning:

Little Yoga Studio

But our cat, Izzy totally got started on yoga before I did! Not quite sure why, but every time I pull the yoga mat out, she’s the first to hop on. After getting set up, I did 20 minutes of Yoga Download’s Balancing flow #1. I thought I would start off pretty easy, as I usually have the attention span of a fruit fly when it comes to yoga, and this worked perfectly. The great thing about Yoga Download is that it comes with charts for each 20 minute class that is pretty helpful. I actually broke a little sweat, and continued on with…*drumroll*  day one of Oh She Glow’s Whittle My Middle challenge!! I tend to have hamster belly, meaning thats where I gain my weight, so I’m looking forward to participating.

My stats are below. From time to time I’ll be documenting that workout here, but I will totally be following it for the next 31 days.

Front Plank – 60 seconds
Side Plank – 30 seconds each side
Torso Twists – 2 sets 1 reps
Plank Ups – 10 (with both legs on the ground)
Boat Pose – 1 set 15 reps
Side Plank with Twist – 10 reps each side
Bicycle – 2 sets 3 reps

Lots planned for tomorrow: Running, a grocery shop for the week, prepping for a new workout plan, cleaning and a trip to the health food store to see if I can find a natural remedy for this sinus infection 😦 Boo. If anyone knows of anything that could possibly help, let me know. Hopefully it goes away soon!

Have a great night!
