30 Day Yoga Challenge


Yep, you've heard that before.  Now I'm within a year of my 30th birthday which means things need to get crossed off my 30 before 30 list.  This time is the real deal.  I've got everything I need.  I'm doing everything from home because the thought of a class terrifies me still.

I'm using videos from 3 main people to get me through.  Rodney Yee, Erin Motz and Mandy Ingber.  I'll be throwing in a little Jillian Michaels here and then to really make my muscles hate love me.


My favorite pose to start is anything where I can lay down.  I've learned to double up on my mats on our floor in my first 2 days.  I also realized that I am lightyears from any sort of handstand.  Obviously I needed to test my skills before getting this thing started.  I promise, I won't be trying anything crazy anytime soon without Justin's supervision.


I asked J to take pictures of me this time around (something I don't normally do) because I'm embracing all of it.  I could use some muscle tone and a few less pounds on my body, so I'm going to work towards that.  I'm not going to hide behind it and wait until everything is "perfect."  I'm also going to pretend we planned for the pictures to be a little blurry... yep.  My brand new yoga outfit is from YogaOutlet.com.  The shirt is my new favorite and the pants are EXTREMELY comfortable.


If you want in on the most comfortable outfit in the world, you should head on over to YogaOutlet.com and get 15% off your first order.  They are wrapping up their summer sale and you probably need to take advantage.  Click here to see the sale!!

  2. yes to yoga! when you're doing any type of side plank that requires you resting on your elbows, roll the mat twice so that you have extra cushion :) take your time; muscle strength/endurance takes time and pretty soon, you'll be killing it. it took me a good 3wks of consistent yoga to finally be able to do the crane pose and not face plant!

  6. 'my favorite post is anything where i can lay down' ; hahaha!
    i really love hot yoga ; doing yoga at home {or not in a heated room} always makes my mind wander. i focus on the dog hair on the carpet or the noisy folks outside.
    excited to hear how this goes!

  8. Which videos are you using? I'd love to start with like 10 minutes a day. I get stiffer as I get older and I'd like to fight against that.

    I love the pants. I might have to check it out. Thanks for the discount code!

  9. These pictures are all AWESOME! I love that top and maaaybe if I got a new yoga mat I would be more inclined to pull it out more often?

  12. Yoga is something that I really want to get in to! A few years ago I tried and did this morning yoga dvd that I picked up at Target but I got bored with it after a few weeks and quit. I want to pick it back up. Yoga is so good for your muscles and your core and back!

  14. I've tried to do yoga once or twice, and I fart like crazy, so I feel like Im ruining the aura and chi in the room for the rest of the class. Plus, my ass stinks, I don't want to kill anyone. But, I wish you much luck, no doubt you will kick some ass with your downward dog. LOVE L-O-V-E that shirt!!!
