Asanas before Manana

Hello Hip Hugging Hipsters! Happy Dad’s Day!

Seeing all the beautiful homages to the world’s great dads on Facebook  and Instagram certainly had me super emotional today.

So, here’s to my amazing dad, whose sick and in hospice and whom I miss dearly in many ways,

but will always be the first love of my life!

dadday

But today is a happy day, and we had an amazing Father’s day weekend! I almost hate for it to end!

Tons of food involved, and quiet time alone with the hubby. The weather was absolutely perfect and it was well deserved,

My hubby is the BEST! Such a great guy, in a million ways… easily my better half and hands down the best thing that has

Ever. Happened. to me.

Happy Father’s Day, Mike! We LOVE you!

Just got home from the pool with the kiddos. A great end to a great weekend.

But hey, manic Monday isn’t here yet, so let’s talk a little weekend fitness, shall we?

 …

Still not much cardio, and even less lifting this week. What has happened to me?

 I don’t know if I am trying to find balance with the 2, or just spending way too much time balancing on my head.

Either way, Yoga is the exercise special of the week,  so here’s plenty of it:


Day 14 Yoga Challenge:

I was tagged to #stopdropandyoga – I was stoked! So, I kicked off my session yesterday with Parsva Bakasana, or Side Crow.

I later flowed into Mermaid Pose, King Pigeon, and the most challenging, Firecrow.

 I spared you the long Sanskrit names THIS time, thank me later.

Day 15 Challenge:

Virabhadrasana (Warrior I), Pincha Mayurasana (a modified forearm stand) and Sirsasana.

The challenges have been getting pretty, eh challenging. My ultimate goal is still to perform

a nice full split like I used to do inmy heyday as well as balance for at least 1 minute on my hands.

Just to think, 4 weeks ago, I didn’t even want to stand and touch my feet because

the intense rush of blood to the head hmm, need to find that Coldplay cd and now I’m upside

at least 5 minutes,in some yoga capacity, for some part of the day.

Haha! We shall see.

Gonna log off and spend some time outside watching the kiddos play kickball in the street,

sip some wine, and enjoy the evening.

Namaste Hip Huggers.

 I hope you all give lots of love to a good dad, or anyone’s dad, this Fathers Day.

And a huge Happy Father’s Day to my guy readers… you absolutely rock!!

Question: What did you all do for Father’s Day? Who got fitness stuff?
