On a Roll

Yesterday I bought this!

I did a bit of rolling when I got home.  It hurts when I roll my hips, but it's like when you get a massage and it hurts... but it hurts so good.  From what I've read, I believe this just confirms that I will definitely benefit from the rolling.  I'm thinking it will also inspire me to clean the kitchen floor more often, because for some weird reason sliding my body along the floor yesterday was a little less than desirable!

And tonight I did some yoga.  I went into the fitness menu in Xfinity On Demand and found a yoga for athletes video and a yoga for all video.  I did all 17 minutes of the yoga for athletes workout and then I sort of did a pick and choose method with the 20 minute yoga for all video since it had a lot of repeat poses and my hamstrings were over it.  I liked the videos and will definitely be trying them again.

I'd like to think I'm pretty fit and more flexible than most, but yoga is so humbling.  I am a beginner!  I love that there's so much room for improvement, but I just need to stick with it.  There are so many videos on youtube, I need to find some that I like so I can master them!  One of the hardest things for me is just to remember to breathe during the poses, but practice makes perfect.

Tomorrow is Friday!  Get excited!  We are getting some days in the 50s, I love it.  Happy Weekend to you, my friends :)

Do you like yoga?  What's your favorite pose?  Any online yoga video suggestions?


  1. I love my foam roller and use it every time I work out (running and cross training). It's made a huge difference with my IT bands. Enjoy the "hurts so good" feeling!

  2. I've never even seen the foam roller before but now I'm going to have to try it! Today is beautiful and it's beginning to look a lot like SPRING! You know what that means, right? Volleyball and softball at the ranch! Hooray :-) I like yoga because they offer beginning intermediate and advanced options for each pose so all walks of life can be in the same class.

  3. Have you ever done a yoga class? I like having the other people around. Although, I can't say that I've ever really made an effort to do it by myself. I got some free yoga videos off of itunes podcasts with the ambition of trying the solo route, but never have found myself doing them. (partly because the house is packed to the gills and I don't have the floor space just yet!) But I also like the feeling of the yoga studio/room - I don't know if it's the "energy," of the setting, but there's definitely a mood. Anyway, if you want to try it sometime I think there's a new yoga studio in Lederach? Or if you want a yoga buddy for the onDemand vids in the living room, I'd be into that, too! :-)

    1. I know what you're saying about the energy of a yoga room. I'd love to go to a studio but I usually find the prices a bit insane! We need to find some bargain yoga in the area lol.

  4. By the way, your background looks like some paper I made over the summer with peony petals! (I love it!)
