Exercise


I have really been trying to make time for exercise the last few months. One of my favorite classes that I take twice a week is called "Yogalaties", which is half Yoga and half Pilates. I LOVE it!! Since I have neglected a regular exercise routine the last few years, I felt like every time that I reached too far or reached in a different direction, that I was pulling a muscle. Talk about feeling old! So this class that I take is wonderful...you really feel like you are getting such a deep stretch for those muscles we don't use all of the time. I feel like my balance has become so much better since doing this, too! I also like this class, because even though you are tired at the end of it, it is relaxing and goes at a pace that doesn't make you feel like you can't keep up. The instructor plays a beach sound effects tape in the background...just lots of fun!



My friend talked me into taking a Latin aerobics class. We started that last night...talk about funny! She has us doing Salsa dancing with a fast aerobic type of rhythm. Oh, my goodness!! We had fun, but talk about feeling uncoordinated!!
Boy did we have a good laugh during that class....when we had enough breath left to laugh. hee hee!!




I liked these pictures of the girls, because their outfits are almost the same exact shade as the new grass coming in!! These outfits were only $6.94( for both pieces) in Wal-mart!

Thanks, my friends, for all of the prayer for Ryan! He is doing okay. Sore and slow moving, but alright. He started back to school yesterday with a few arrangements. he has to have someone carry his stuff for him, because he can not carry or lift anything. Also, he is dismissed from classes early so as not to get caught in the rush of the hallways. We go to see the spine specialist tomorrow and hope to hear things are going in the right direction as far as healing.

Have a great day, everyone!!!

I love the outfits! The girls are cute too. :-) I might just have to look at our WalMart for those. Of course it is way too cold yet here to wear them, but it will warm up eventually!

Have a great day!

I pray you get a good report at the dr. That is smart thinking, him getting out of class early before all of the other kids are in the halls.
I love the girls outfits. :) We have a few Walmart things ourselves. They had some cute Disney capri sets Caitlyn has been wearing. I got most of their spring clothes at Target because my credit card offers Target gift cards for rewards.

Great job on the excersize, I've been trying to work out too. That yoga/pilates class sounds fun.

Hmmm...your Walmart has cuter things than ours does!! I love them they are darling!

Good for you for exercising. I do love the way I feel throughout the day when I get up early and walk before I shower. Alot more energy!

I just found your blog when I was blog hopping. Your girls are precious! I am glad your son is ok. I see you recently got a new furry friend. We did too. Her name is also Daisey. We call her Daisey Mei. She is a Bassett Hound.
Again, you have a lovely family.

I'm with you - I won't exercise unless it is FUN...that is why I love my hip-hop class so much. Enjoy your dance class - and remember that laughter does the body good too!!!

Love those outfits on the girls - and I love a good deal as well.

Glad to hear Ryan is on the mend too.
Enjoy your weekend, Michelle.
