I'm a Yogi
After watching "The Biggest Loser" this week and reading Workout Mommy's post about yoga, I tried it. I wasn't expecting much, but she promised that I'd have sweat running down my back just by doing the simple Sun Salutation. I tried two rounds of the moves and at the end, I didn't have sweat running down my back, but I could definitely feel that my heart rate definitely was faster than before and I did feel like I had just done a workout.
Last week, I had to laugh at work when a co-worker did the same series of moves during a presentation on India. She demonstrated the Sun Salutation and at the end stated that she was sweating. Little did I know it was such a workout.
What a great way to start the day! If you haven't tried yoga, give it a whirl. I'll be adding the sun salutation to my early morning routine.
WOW! Someone on the WW message boards mentioned adding two packets of splenda and a teaspoon of cinnamon to some 94% ff popcorn. It was delicious. Something I've been missing is sweetness to go along with crunch and this did the trick. I probably should use this new treat with caution as it is definitely addicting.
