Three hour naps.

I just had a three hour nap and woke up GROUCHY.  How is that possible?  I’m exhausted actually and thank God I have a husband who understands the importance of my sleep during a challenge and threatened the children with death if they didn’t play quietly while I slept.  The children of course quickly nodded …

I’m done but I’ve just started.

I did it! I completed my first 30 day challenge of Bikram yoga. I ended much stronger than I thought I would and the last 3 days where the best days of my practice so far. I measured myself on the first day of the challenge and over the course of the month I lost …

Day 11.

It seems to me that a 30 day challenge is more a mental challenge than anything else.  Can I find the time EVERYDAY to go and 90 minutes of yoga?  The first few days of the challenge I was so worried about IF I had some non existant appointment and needed to go at a …

Sushi night in Canada.

So “N” desperately wanted to make sushi.  Since there is no family thing this weekend for Thanksgiving I figured what the hell.  We made vegetable sushi and salmon maki.  We also made Orange Chicken teriyaki with homemade teriyaki sauce and vegetable tempura from scratch.  It was AWESOME.  I think I’ll make the kids sushi for …

Chin hairs and dimple butt.

This morning I was awaken by the sweet voice of my three year old saying “happy birthday cake Mommy”.  It was like music to my ears.  I had a glorious sleep last night and do not remember a thing after my head hit the pillow until 7:16 this morning.  What a great way to start …

The size of my assets…

Okay, lets be nice.  If I’m looking at my butt right now I’d have to say that it is a little on the alarming side.  Not in a cute JLo kind of way where the rest of my body is fantastic and then BAM look at that junk in her trunk!  But in a ‘holy sizematology …
