New water pitcher

July 18, 2011

I just found out one of my friends can’t come to my wedding, but she did send me this lovely water pitcher.

I absolutely love it, and even used it for dinner tonight. My fiance and I attempted to make meatballs with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, breadcrumbs, and anchovies, but we forgot to add the breadcrumbs and accidentally bought sardines instead of anchovies. So yeah, they weren’t as good as they could have been. But they were still pretty tasty (guess mozzarella will do that!).

The gift of yoga

January 3, 2011

The yoga book and DVD I bought the other day

In college, my friend Michelle and I regularly attended yoga class. I enjoyed the relaxation it brought me, and learning how to better stretch my muscles (one of my favorite moves was the shoulder stand…try it sometime– it helps the whole body!).

After graduation I partook in a yoga class here and there, but it certainly wasn’t a regular thing. I have also, from time to time, done some yoga moves on my own. Well, I finally bought a yoga DVD and hope to do yoga more often. I think it will be a good complement to cardiovascular activity.

I tried out the DVD yesterday (it came with a book).  I really liked how the workout is divided into mini-workouts (like sun salutations, standing postures, and balances), the relaxing background music, and Gena Kenny‘s contribution to the exercises. She helps you along without annoying you (I’ve done other exercise videos where the fitness personality is overly peppy or just plain talks to much).

Plus, she has a cool Australian accent.
