Rock you like a hurricane

Stay safe, east coasters!  I’ll be hunkered down with the boyfriend and the cats for the duration. The worst thing for me during these storms is cabin fever.  I get this insane urge to go outside (usually for coffee) at really inappropriate times.  This time, when that happens, I’m going to do some yoga and … Continue reading


If you saw or check out my post What’s in a name? you know that enrollment in my “plus size” yoga class series is down…The yoga director and I came up with some ideas to try to market the class but, unfortunately, the owners of the studio didn’t go for it.  Sadly that means that … Continue reading

Standing Split at the Wall

So I’m back from vacation, and none too happy about it.  As soon as I got back to DC, my sinuses immediately revolted and my eyes started to itch like crazy.  My stomach has been bothering me since yesterday and then I couldn’t sleep.  Meh.  So, right now, all I’d like to do is go back to … Continue reading
