Day 22 of #fallintoyoga October #yogachallenge: Double Spinal Twist Pose

I could actually fall asleep in this pose; it feels so good. It’s something I do every morning before I get out of bed and every night before I sleep to help keep my back flexible.  These were the best pictures I could get. I put the phone up on the blade of the ceiling fan to take them.

Never push your body beyond mild discomfort, never into pain. Let your body invite you deeper into poses with your breath.

So got the boys to bed and headed for a run. I upped the speed a bit and pushed hard. My brained raged against my legs…. I pushed to shut my brain off. I knew I could do it. I shaved 1:30 off my last time (Friday). It took awhile to get my heartrate down and I was soooooo sweaty. Did some yoga after to stretch out. I am loving lizard pose and half frog pose. I think I’m getting closer to sitting mermaid. And I even managed to hold crow pose for a second. It’s coming!!! I am truly looking forward to some real time this winter to focus on working on my yoga. I have an acquaintance who is a yoga instructor and she has offered to come give me a private lesson. I need to take her up on it. I know it would benefit me.

So awesome!! you’re doing great!

Horror Movie Workout Challenge Day 16, complete! 
evolutionofafitgeek has put together some killer workouts and this one is no exception!  I had to modify the counts down to 10 of each thing cos I only had 10# and 12# pound weights in my workout room (the lower weights are in my car), and I just couldn&#8217;t do all those reps with those weights.
My arms are KILLING ME, BUT I SURVIVED!!! DID YOU???
PS - this is the best 60s flashback I could come up with - a headband and a tie-die shirt!  Hope that counts!  Oh, and I left my hair down too &#8230; very 60s flower child-esque!

Low carb cookies that embody fall!!  I made these up out of a desire to figure out what to do with the pumpkin extract and apple extract I had hahaha! And I’m so excited that they came out delicious considering I made this up! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup erythritol (or other zero calorie sweetener- also optional is adding 5 drops stevia glycerite on top of the erythritol)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin extract
  • 1/2 tsp apple extract
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder (some cook better than others so beware)
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix butter, sweetener, extracts, and egg in a bowl.
  3. Add everything else and blend until smooth.
  4. Scoop 2tsp size balls onto parchment paper or a silpat nonstick mat.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes (in my oven it took 10)

Enjoy!!!! Yummmmm!!!

See, I don’t have all these extracts  and protein powder and stuff. :/  and I don’t’ know what ‘blanched almond flour’ even is! These look so good, tho!  You need to start a company and SHIP your keto cookies to the world!!! I would buy them!!

I would LOVE to do that. Seriously it’d be the best! But I’d need to find a good way to ship the cookies that’d keep them well in tact, fresh, and yet not cost so much that no one would want to order them! Hahaha!

There must be a way, other companies do it, I’m sure! And, if the cookies are as tasty as they look, then people will pay for them & the shipping. You never know!! 

I’ve actually found in my own business that you can charge TOO LITTLE for your products. If you charge too little, people think it isn’t any good or the quality isn’t there. Of course, you can price yourself out of the market, too … but you don’t have to be ‘cheap’ if you’re providing a quality product. Just give people what they’re paying for. :)

#21 revolved side angle — parivrtta parsvakonasana

so… obviously i filmed myself. even though the pose is fairly easy to get into,  @fatgirlgetsfitatlast got the idea in my head and i had to do it. so thanks for that :-) 

i taught myself how to make gifs out of videos today without using a gif-generator website *yay*

Love this! And the doggie helping is awesome!

How do you make gifs without a gif generator!? Share! The last two gifs I made with a generator didn’t move when I loaded them up on tumblr. :(

Thanks! Yes, Paula is always helping me… 

So, ho to do it… i have a macbook, but i guess it’s adaptable if you have windows.

You need a movie editor, in my case iMovie and….. a gif generator. Yep I didn’t do it completely without obviously, just not with a website generator. For mac users i found GIFfun (works with Yosemite), but i take a wild guess that there are a gazillion free ones for windows, too.

Anyway, after you edit your clip (it shouldn’t be too long, i had problem with my minute twenty-four seconds) you have to export it to an image sequence.

In iMovie you find Export with Quicktime in the Share tab.
There you can choose to export it as an image sequence. Under options you can decide how many pictures per seconds should be exported. I played around a bit, but ultimately choose 0.4. In this window is also another option button where you can set image quality. I chose between poor and the middle, you can play around here, too. It really depends how long your clip is, so that in the end you won’t have a 20mb gif, which obviously takes ages to load in the interwebs. 
Save/Export the sequence to an empty folder :-)

Open your gif generating app and import your folder with the sequence.
Generate gif. With GIFfun it will open up in your browser and i saved it from there.

I think I did at least seven different quality/images per second settings until the gif was small enough to show up here (it’s now 1.9mb, I guess it should be at least under 5mb to load okay for everyone).

I hope I could help you fatgirlgetsfitatlast!

Thanks! I used the website ‘make a gif’ (I think it’s called’) and mine were 2.2 mb, only 3-4 seconds, and they wouldn’t play once they were loaded on Tumblr, which sucked. I’ll play around with some other things. Thanks for the info!

Holy Crap!

I was looking for a new studio for hot yoga since the one I’ve been going to seems to be falling apart (teacher-wise).

Anyway, came across this one:  55+ gets ‘Senior Discount’ … I’m only 2.5 years from being a freaking ‘Senior’?!?!?! Really!?

Not sure how I feel about this!

6not ready to be a senior, I still feel like a senior in high school!, of course the discount is cool!, journal, age, old, feeling old, senior?, really?,

6fallintoyoga,

Hey I know I may sound really stupid right now… but what is keto I've never heard of it before?

Hi!! 

First, there are no stupid questions!!

A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy (vs. using carbs/glucose). It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.

Here is more information on it if you are interested.

And my Reading List is full of books and online articles about it.

For anyone who struggles with insatiable cravings for carbs or who is insulin resistant, or who is just looking for a way of eating that improves your energy level, mental clarity, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc, I would suggest looking into it.

It saved my life, literally.

Horror Movie Workout Challenge - Day 16 - Weird Science

                                         ”its alive… ITS ALIVE!!!”

We all know those words. Its the story of Dr. Frankenstein and the creation of his grotesque monster. Its been retold thousands of times and its been the subject of discussion for years. Is the big giant green guy named Frankenstein or Frankenstein’s Monster?

Not only that but in every remake or story that gets told about the monster, he’s either the big bad or just a misunderstood accident. Its likely he may have a bi-polar disorder due to the person that is directing or writing the script at the time.

In other incarnations he throws a little girl in the pool and she drowns because she was throwing rose petals. He believed that every pretty little thing belongs in the water. Later on he is chased by the village with pitch forks and fire.

image

In one incarnation, The Monster Squad (Probably my favorite monster movie of all time… Definitely.) He helps the humans defeat the monsters that are using him for his deformation and strength.

image

With Strength being the key word here, we are going to focus on the upper body… mainly the chest and shoulders area due to his massive size. So bring out the resistance bands or if you have weights, go ahead and use those too.
