Shopping counts as a workout, right? The walking, the arm strengthening as you carry hangers and hangers of clothing, the contortions (stretching!) as you try to shimmy into and out of certain items (sports bras are especially challenging), the bending down to try on shoes - it all adds up to a workout when you shop like Barbara and I do!
We also wiggled into these Vibram Five Finger running shoes:
Getting back to workouts, though - I actually did something new, something that I've been curious to try but not brave enough to do it on my own - we went to a yoga class on Tuesday! And you know what? I liked it. Luckily Barbara gave me a little lesson the night before, so I understood when the instructor would say things like "curl your toes under" and "child pose" and other mysteries...that really helped me keep up. Also, I gave up trying to inhale and exhale at the correct moments as I was doing the poses and just concentrated on getting the pose down, and that worked for me. Breathing will come later. ;) By the way? I broke a sweat in that class, and it wasn't because it was hot yoga - it was intense! We are planning on going to another class on Friday...should be fun!
