Coming Out of Hibernation – 30 Day Yoga Challenge

Hi Steffiiiiiiiiililili.

I haven’t worked out in 4 months! I took a hibernation break or something. Don’t judge me. Three things happened to me recently that I’m realizing now were slaps in the face to wake me up.

Thing #1.

Thing #2.

I found my favorite yoga pants. I thought I lost them! Last time I was missing clothing it was mingled in with Grayson’s stuff, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. Well I guess I hadn’t looked in my work out clothes drawer because they were RIGHT THERE.

Thing #3.

DoYouYoga.com sent me an email about a 30-day yoga challenge starting on April 1st. It’s for beginners, but it should be good for me since I’m all rusty and not flexible. Putchoyogapantson and do it with me! It’s free and you can do it at home and it looks like they will only be about 30 minutes. I’ve done a few classes and another challenge on this website before; I signed up for a lifetime membership when they first launched. I’m going to try to keep up on my profile over there so I can track my progress. Also, I have no friends over there -_- wahhh.

How are you coming out of hibernation this spring?

A New Yoga Room Floor!

HiSteffiItsTuesdayyy

My awesome husband made me a new floor for my birthday! Yes, a floor. Remember my yoga room? It hasn’t really been used for yoga lately; it hasn’t been used for anything really except it’s where Midna looks out the window. It’s difficult to do yoga on carpet – really bad for your wrists and things – so I needed hard flooring. Grayson bought flooring at Costco in arcadia sunset and followed the instructions on the box, easy peasy! Well, he won’t say the same, but nevermind that.

Here’s the room before

Underneath all that carpet was horrible vinyl! Grayson hacked at it for a couple hours before it was all gone.

He put down a moisture (ew) barrier first and then started piecing the wood panels together. The barrier didn’t reach all the way across the room, so he just made sure the uncovered part was along the inside wall because here in AZ there’s hardly any risk of water coming up from the ground.

Apparently there was a fair bit of finger smashing during this part.

Aaaand done!

Well almost. Still have to do the baseboards and right up to the door but look at it! What a difference, I have a yoga studio! I’ll show you a picture once I’ve got it all set up 🙂
