I’m going to recycle one of my challenges, only because I love it so much!  I’m going to do some more yoga today because this came in the mail a few days ago:

earth-mat-new400

It’s a yoga pad that I won in a giveaway from the lovely MizFit and Lotuspad Yoga Mats!  It’s spongy and big and fun!  It was in my hands for approximately 3.4 seconds before my kids got hold of it and went berserk using it as a catwalk, a tight rope, and a slide (I freaked out when I saw the oldest one holding one end in the air, and the youngest one trying to slide down it!).  I finally wrangled it away from them long enough to do a little Warrior 1 and 2 pose, ignoring the rolling eyes of my husband who thinks I’m going to become some kind of pot-smoking hippie earth-mama (and really would that be such a bad thing if I did? Earth mama, not pot-smoking hippie.).  He was not on board with the whole yoga thing until I told him it would make more “bendy”, then he was all for it. Typical male. 😉

Anyway, I think I’m going to find a more challenging yoda dvd and try to make this at least a weekly thing because I really feel so good after I’ve done 45 minutes of stretching and breathing!  I highly recommend it to anyone needing a little “me” time. 

May we all have a wonderful, stress-free weekend!
