Weekend Chatter

Happy Sunday Everyone! I type this post while watching the second quarter of the Cowboys-Giants game (DVR'ing Breaking Bad-- decisions, decisions). I love watching a good football game, especially when it's not a Jets game. My poor husband, a lifelong Jets fan, suffers season after season watching the Jets. Sometimes there's cursing and yelling involved. … Continue reading Weekend Chatter


100th Post!

After starting this blog with a sprint from the starting line on January 3, 2013, I now crawl over the 100 post milestone, almost six months later. So what have I learned from blogging? Well, I've read that most blogs die around six months. I've definitely slowed down, but I'm not dead by far. I … Continue reading 100th Post!

My yoga classes are held at a gym-- a regular gym with rows of treadmills and ellipticals, a basketball and racquetball court, and even a "Cardio Cinema" (Basically, it's a movie theater that substitutes cardio machines for seats. Ingenious.). The good thing … Continue reading Giggle Girl

Back into the Groove . . .

Tonight I attempt to get back into the blogging groove with a short, simple post.  Thanks for coming back. I'm immersed again in my yoga book:  The Heart of Yoga: Developing a Personal Practice, by T.K.V. Desikachar, and wanted to share.  Here's a verse I found in the "Yoganjalisaram" section: Respect parents, avoid evil, seek … Continue reading Back into the Groove . . .

Adam Levine, Chicken Wings, and Yoga

On Saturday, M. and I ventured on our weekly food shopping journey to Whole Foods.  My husband requested wings for Superbowl Sunday and Whole Foods was having a sale, so M. and I did our shopping, then grabbed a bucket and filled it up with three different types of chicken wings. M. and I were … Continue reading Adam Levine, Chicken Wings, and Yoga
