Hot Yoga?

In my excitement about pineapples yesterday, I completely forgot to include the new circuit workout I did after my run yesterday.

circuit

During this thing I didn’t think it was so bad, but today, I AM SORE!!  My legs, especially with those single leg squats.  Good thing I have running group tonight to take an easy run and work it out.  

Any who.  Yesterday, my friend Jenna texted me with a hot yoga groupon.  $35 for 10 classes.  Considering a single class is $20, I figured this is a great deal to try it out and get a real feel for what it is all about.  So, we dove in and bought them together yesterday.  This is especially good because one of my goals for this year was to go to a yoga class once a week.  The only one that my gym offers that works with my class schedule is on Friday afternoons and the past few weeks I have been having things come up that have kept me from going.  (Excuses, excuses, I know)!  However, now that we will be going together and scheduling it once a week, it is more built in my schedule now (accountability baby)!

Tomorrow will be class one.  I am going to get a mile or two in first (gotta stay on the April Streaking) then heading over, which I will hopefully not regret.  Until then, I will be drinking water like its running out!

Have you ever tried Hot Yoga?  Am I going to die?

Pineapples Aren’t Scary

I finally broke down and bought a whole pineapple the other day y’all and I swear to you I’m never going back!!  It killed me to pay $5 for the single serving little dinky container that was sitting next to the whole ones for $2 but for years I have always though “That thing is intimidating!”

IT IS SOOOOOO EASY to slice a pineapple!!  I swear to you, here is your proof!

Tadaa!!  That is seriously it!  It didn’t poke me, it took all of 5 minutes and I got a huge tupperware container full of pineapple for $2.  We had enough to put in with the ham Easter Sunday, eat a bunch that day and I have had some for lunch every day (it will probably run out tomorrow though, so sad!).

Hope this is helpful to anyone else that may have been intimidated by the pineapple; my life has been wonderfully changed!!
