Big, beautiful bowl of oats!
No better way to start the day…. especially when eaten while listening to the new Snow Patrol album. Snow Patrol is our favorite band of all time – the Husband and I even danced to one of their songs (Chasing Cars) as our first dance song at our wedding. The new album is great so far; I especially love the song New York.
In the mix:
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup almond milk
Toppings: frozen blueberries and brown sugar
Guess what I managed to do this morning? A little prenatal yoga. Without caffeine in my system. Pat on my own back, y’all.
I’ve completely fallen off the yoga bandwagon. This time last year, I belonged to a hot yoga studio and went two times a week, usually hitting up the 90 minute hot flow classes.
Eventually, I got to the point where I could do this (a Bird of Paradise)…
I stopped going because classes felt way too hot and uncomfortable in the summertime and then… I just never went back. And now I struggled to stay in Warrior I position. Whoops.
But I’m going to try to get back into it. I’m doing some social media work for a website called GaiamTV, which streams yoga videos, fitness videos, and other workout videos like Jillian Michaels and Pilates on your computer or phone for a flat monthly rate (they do a free 10 day trial!). They’ve got a little prenatal section, and I tried out Shiva Rea’s standing poses video. It had lower ratings – 2 stars – but I thought it was a nice program. Or maybe I’m just super out of practice because although it seemed pretty basic, I felt challenged.
Steaming Streaming workout videos is the way of the future, yo. I’m hosting a #GaiamTV Twitter party tonight at 7 PM EST from @CaitlinHTP if you want to join in – you could win a subscription to the service!
Do you own lots of workout DVDs or are you switching to streaming option? And if you’re preggers like me, can you recommend any good prenatal yoga videos?
