Astanga! My body told me that’s what it wanted, during my morning meditation earlier

Same practice as last time but a much higher rev, even though I didn’t do any jump rope warm-up again. Lately I don’t want any bouncing before yoga. Poses Comments Suryas & Standing Fundamentals w/ standing arches in the 5 Surya As, 3lb hand held weights for 3rd – 5th. Held that last standing backbend longer than again, 5 breaths. Two, 5-breath handstands @ the … Continue reading Astanga! My body told me that’s what it wanted, during my morning meditation earlier

Looks like it’s another 4-day week

I’m not that motivated lately. In the past, when in this mood, I’d buy some new workout clothes and/or a new piece of equipment. I might take a yoga class in a non Astanga studio, or sign up for circus training. But now? Eh… I could repeat a Summer Shred, just to get the blood moving, but today I don’t really want to bother. I did … Continue reading Looks like it’s another 4-day week

#TitanUpin30 Week 4 Workout + HIIT & Yoga

I finally got around to this one! (I ought to have known better than to decide I had a chance of wining an Instagram contest. That’s for people with followers, lol.) Anyway – Yay the battery change seemed to work! Monitor didn’t drop out!!!! It might seem silly, but working out in the buddy-less, gym-less, studio-less, new clothes-less vacuum as I do, tracking my output … Continue reading #TitanUpin30 Week 4 Workout + HIIT & Yoga

Didn’t stretch at all after b/c no stats. Just occurred to me the battery might need replacing so I’ll try that… Anna’s Birthday Workout Warm-up Bonus: Abs … Continue reading Anna’s Birthday Workout

(a take on) HIIT Pairs & Burpees by Meghan K, 2nd half

You know, I was thinking in the first half of this WO that I might prefer it w/ double (or more) of the HIIT and half the burpees. Like… 3 rounds of each pair, for six minutes, and then ten burpees. Or… no reps at all! This is much less psychological and physical work, and was good for me on a day I just wanted … Continue reading (a take on) HIIT Pairs & Burpees by Meghan K, 2nd half

Deeply restorative Astanga yoga

I took another rest day yesterday. Helped with trimming more instead. Went grocery shopping with Charlie… Today’s been a cooking blitz. I made this lemon & almond flour cake… Messed up following the instructions, but it just may be edible, warmed up and with vanilla ice cream, rather than the lemon & confectioners sugar glaze. I made some rice with leftover mushroom stock & veggies … Continue reading Deeply restorative Astanga yoga

HIIT Pairs & Burpees by Meghan K, pt 1 & some yoga

Tailoring things to my current level Yesterday I took a rest day… I’d intended to do yoga but so far I can’t get myself to it more than once a week, despite my best intentions. I did take a walk up the hill to Council Crest carrying Theo though. (I’d thought she felt more substantial but no, still only 5.8lbs.) And still I only wanted ½ of a … Continue reading HIIT Pairs & Burpees by Meghan K, pt 1 & some yoga
