June Yoga Challenge, Week 3

Happy Fridayyyyyy! How’s everyone doin’ this morning? We’ve got some yoga talk to get to, so let’s quickly whiz through breakfast.


Today was a cereal kinda day. Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Cascadian Farms Purely O’s, blueberries, banana slices, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.


Those Quaker Oatmeal Squares man…they’re probably another food that would be up there on my “I’ve started and can’t stop” list next to yesterday’s animal crackers. They’re just so darn scrumptious.


Alright, it’s Friday, so you know what that means!

June Yoga Challenge – Week 3 Recap

Three weeks in to the June Yoga Challenge. Good lord, is June flying by or what? Unfortunately, this week didn’t go so well for me…

My Challenge: Do 3 yoga sessions for the week

Actual: 1 yoga session done (certainly not as great as last week)

I felt like my schedule has kind of been all over the place this week, and some of my “planned” times for yoga ended up getting messed up. For example, the yoga class I was really looking forward to last night. I wanted to go in the worst way, but I couldn’t let my softball team down…

I may have sweat my face off, but we did win! Smile

I’m not quite sure what little bro is doing here…

But anyways, back to the yoga. The session I did do this week was great; a 40 minute core strength video from my Yoga Bootcamp DVD. Even though I didn’t reach my goal, I’m certainly not loving yoga any less; in fact, I’m still craving it like crazy. I think I’m just going to have to chalk this week up to bad planning and bad timing. Hey, it happens, right?

Next week, I’m going to attempt to up my goal to 4 sessions. I’d really like to do another video or two from mybarre3.com, and possibly take a class somewhere if my schedule allows. I may still try to get another session in today, but I have a feeling it’s unlikely, since I do have plans for a slightly different form of relaxation…


I bought this Living Social deal a couple of months ago and am so excited to cash it in today. I’m opting for the 45 minute Swedish massage + 15 minute reflexology. I’ve always wanted to try reflexology but I’m a little nervous I might end up kicking her since my feet are a tad on the ticklish side. Winking smile

So since this is week 3 of the June Yoga Challenge, let’s see if any of you guys did better with your challenge than I did. Go ahead and link ‘em up here (you’ll get yourself an extra entry into the giveaway for the Aurorae yoga mat) and let’s cheer each other on!

    Hahaha if you kick the lady during reflexology, you’ll have to let us know ;). I’m ticklish too! I was always afraid to get a regular massage for that reason- but I’m glad that I didn’t feel like I was being tickled to death during it. Um and seriously, quaker oatmeal squares are addicting! I feel like I can finish a box in 3-4 bowls haha

    I met my goal this week but did better last week. Here’s to hoping next week will be our best week yet!

    I have that same problem with oatmeal squares! Just curious but why do you consider the barre3 class yoga? All of the barre type classes I’ve taken have been strength traing in my book with leg lifts, squats, and arm work. Are the ones you’re doing full of downward dogs and vinyasas?

      You’re right – technically, most of them aren’t a typical yoga class, but there are a couple on there that are labeled as yoga which I am planning on including. I haven’t watched the full videos of them yet though, so we’ll see how they turn out! :)

    Oh, I need to join this challenge! I feel like I always slack on my yoga when I’m NOT in a studio taking a class. Kinda stinks…it’s so easy to let it fall to the wayside when you’re not paying for a class. Not to mention my living room is too small – I’ve hit the ceiling fan several times. (This is when I wish I were short.) Thank God we’re buying a new home! 😀

    BTW: I have a HUGE cereal container filled with oatmeal squares at all times. You aren’t alone in the addiction. :)

    If you are feeling bored with your yoga DVD’s, check out gaimtv.com. You can stream hundreds of yoga and fitness DVD’s right to your computer for less than $10 a month. I love it, and rarely do I feel energized and motivated to try another video. I’m loving the June Yoga Challenge!

    I went to an awesome yoga class on Monday. It was hardcore – I always love going to a class with this teacher because while it’s a great stretch and relaxing at the end, she works you really hard in class! All of us were groaning with effort! lol. Enjoy your massage – I have no experience with reflexology, so looking forward to hearing more about that!
