The other night, I was flipping through the latest issue of Shape magazine. I have a subscription and definitely look forward to reading it every month. For April’s issue, the beautiful Alison Sweeney is featured on the cover … I’m a big fan of hers. I remember watching Days of Our Lives when I was younger and adoring her then, and I still watch her every week as the host of the Biggest Loser.
But my adoration of Alison Sweeney is not the point of this post, so I’m moving on. While flipping pages, I saw this:
Ummm…this is weird, no? I’m all for trying new exercise routines. I love mixing it up. But can you imagine trying to conduct a business meeting while sweating your face off? Trying to agree to the terms of a contract while your face drips? Or for me, doing an interview for a story … while I have sweat stains under my arms and
probably smell terrible?
WHY would someone want to do that?! Perplexing.
Remember when I went out and bought myself a yoga mat? I’ve been putting that sucker to good use. In fact, I’m becoming a little bit obsessed. I haven’t signed up for any studio classes yet, but have done several videos online at home … and I have a favorite pose.
I could dolphin pose all over my house! I love that feeling in my shoulders … it really eases a lot of the tension. I’ve been pushing myself a lot at the gym lately when it comes to upper body workouts (tank top season is soon!) and this is a welcome stretch.
Do you practice yoga? Like I said, I’m a total newbie … but I like it! What is your favorite pose?
I’m a romance novel/movie/television show junkie. I’ve read countless Nicholas Sparks books, and my FAVORITE ONE is The Lucky One. So you can imagine how excited I am for this …
I know I’m not alone on this one any other eager fans out there? I’m ready and willing to sob my eyes out.
…and swoon over Zac Efron, obviously.
