Nike Boot Camp Training

The class killed it today with Nike Boot Camp Training -- kicked my butt in a good way. I encourage you to push yourself just a little bit each time you exercise. This will help you reach the next level. I am not talking about the "no pain no gain" philosophy. I am speaking of just good ole exercise and motivation to arrive at the next level. Listen to your body first, and your endorphins will take over. Exercise will help keep you young. Exercise Keeps You Young

Kick Butt and then Yoga!

Yesterday, I was really mean to myself and kicked my butt in a Nike Bootcamp Training Class!!! Was Awesome and Hurt so GOOD! Today, I tuned it down with Yoga. I am sore, and it did help. There are so many types of Yoga for you to try. Challenge yourself today if you are not already a Yoga Buff to try something different -- some are more challenging than others.
  • Hatha - physical poses as a way toward self-realization.
  • Vinyasa -- Fluid movements and frequent switching between poses, thus raising the heart rate.
  • Ashtanga -- Fast-paced cardio with strength training (vigorous and awesome).
  • Power Vinyasa -- More physical and taxing than vinyasa and does not have a set sequence of poses.
  • Iyengar -- Perfect alignment, using props such as belts, belts and blankets.
  • Bikram -- "Hot Yoga" -- 26-pose sequence in temps that can reach 105 degrees and up to 40% humidity.
  • Mamaste -- Yoga for women who are pregnant or who have recently had a baby.

Hope is beautiful

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ~George Eliot~
While staying focused, I am still excited and hopeful to be able to share the concept of never giving up on your dreams -- no matter what they might be. So excited to even be in this position -- one that I would have never dreamed of in a million years. I am working with a screen writer -- we'll see where it goes. Hope is Beautiful.
