Eating, Reading, Listening, Loving

Hi All, Welcome to another edition of ERLL! Let’s jump right in, shall we? Eating: Since two of my kids have moved out in the last six months, how we eat dinner has changed. I used to fix a big family meal most nights which required planning and thawing and cooking and cleaning up and putting away, but now since…

A Yoga Site for Regular Folks

I’ve dabbled with yoga for a long time, but have not been consistent in my practice enough to feel anything other than a beginner each time I unroll my mat. I’ve come to accept that this is perfectly fine – and I would also love to spend more time in yoga and make it actual practice instead of an occasional activity. I…

MyYogaWorks review

If you’ve been reading me for very long, you know that I love yoga. After all of last weeks physical and mental activity I decided that this week I would treat my body to some gentle early morning yoga – so far it’s been exactly what my body needed! ♥ About a month ago, I received an offer to review…

Quitter

Howdy!  So hey guess what?! I hate running!! Ah, I love this time of year…it’s the season of quitting. Yes, folks more times than I can count I have emerged from a dreary winter and had aspirations of becoming a real runner, so I download a C25K program, buy new running shoes, and start running. Then approximately 6 weeks in,…

BUI

Um, wow. Well yesterday’s post was just weird…and random. Take note, kids: never blog while under the influence. Even if it is just antihistamines. Blogging Under the Influence is bad for the planet. And it makes the angels cry. Don’t make the angels cry. Not even once.  Lots of stuff going on in the world of The Pear. I’m still…

New blog layout

Do you love it? I do. This theme is called “Crafty”. I wish the little apple was a little pear, but I still like him. I think this layout fits my personality. 🙂 In other news, What the heck is going on in the universe lately? Everyone I have talked to is having a difficult time right now. My problems are…

I did yoga and other random tidbits

Happy Tuesday E’rbody! (source) So I got my happy arse out of bed at 5:30 this morning and did some yoga. When it was over I remember thinking “that was definitely worth getting up for!!” I love yoga and I don’t know why I don’t do it more. Oh yeah, because I work full time and have 3 kids and…

Everybody Zumba!

Oh my gosh y’all – Zumba was so much fun last night!!! It was the first class being offered at this gym and I guarantee there were 100+ people there – it was packed!! I went by myself since my buddy T couldn’t go, and out of all those 100+ people there, I didn’t know a soul. Granted it was…

Shoulding all over myself

This feels different. I feel different. I feel like taking things slow and not stressing out about what I’m not doing or what I should be doing. I’m taking things at my own pace and I like it. In my past dieting life I thought: • I should be eating only the cleanest, most natural, most wholesome foods (rarely did…

VIM – I got the vision part down

I really didn’t want to post about this. I mean, I did, but it’s kind of embarrassing, so I have put it off for awhile, but Debby’s post today (go read it, I’ll wait) made me think that I need to go ahead and just do it. A couple of weeks ago, I was doing a yoga DVD and meditating…
