Election Day is finally here!! With all of the campaign commercials I’ve seen in the last few days, I kind of feel like this girl-
In joking aside, if you haven’t voted yet, get out there and do it-it’s your civic duty! Google even has a nifty tool to help you find your polling place and follow along with all of the action today-click here to find out where you can vote.
On to fitness!
Last week was “one of those weeks” so I decided to follow Clare’s example and decided to get in a little yoga…at home. Since drop-in classes near my house are $18 per class, it’s not a habit I want to get into, so I decided to turn to the internet to see if I could get in a good session and turned up two resources I’d never used before.
First, I came across BeFit’s YouTube channel. BeFit is the YouTube channel for Lionsgate, which produces workout videos Denise Austin and, you guessed it…Jillian Michaels. I was thrilled to see that BeFit had the full length version of Jillian’s Yoga Meltdown available online since it’s one of the few Jillian DVDs I don’t own.
I tried out Level One since it was my first go round with Jillian (and she can go off the ranch sometimes), which was a great way to get in a bit of sweat and wasn’t too hard.
Next up, I wanted to get in a good stretch-especially for my pesky hips [insert link]-so I did a bit more Googling and found that yogajournal.com has an entire library of free yoga videos for yogis of all levels.
I did the Gentle Flow sequence led by Kathryn Budig. The practice (am I yoga experienced enough to even call it that?) was relaxed and was just the thing my hips needed.
