Productive Morning, Less Eventful Evening

I finally got my booty out of bed this morning and did some Yoga before work. Rodney Yee’s 20-minute Morning Workout was a perfect start to my day, and I did it right in my living room! In fact, I am going to make it a habit to get up 20 minutes earlier for some pre-work yoga time!

After yoga I whipped up a peppermint protein frappuccino. Yummy stuff, but I still want to tweak the recipe a bit before posting!

At work I did what I always do… baked cupcakes of course!  :).

After work I ran 3 miles outside! Three slow-mo miles…

After my productive start to the day, I have lost some momentum by working on social media classwork all afternoon… For lack of more stimulating information I decided to give you some of my favorite links to yoga things!

My Beginner Yoga Favorites:

  • Favorite Yoga blogger – Jen at Peanut Butter Runner, shares her experiences as a Yoga teacher, helpful tips, and inspiration.
  • Favorite Yoga Pants – Bally’s Total Fitness 2-pack. I got mine for 21.98 at Sam’s Club (that’s a deal!!).
  • Favorite Yoga Mat – Gaiam Prosperity Mat from Target.
  • Favorite Yoga Prop- Yoga Blocks!! I was told not to be ashamed of using blocks if I can’t reach the ground… so I’m not :)!
  • Favorite Yoga Class- Bikram Yoga! I think I would like hot yoga anywhere, so I suggest you find one near you ASAP!
  • Favorite (and only) Yoga DVD’s- Rodney Yee’s Beginner DVD and his Daily Yoga.

Do you guys have any yoga favorites?

  1. I’m always sooo silly and neglect doing yoga..or it’s always the last thing I focus on doing. Ugh. BAD idea, because I know it’s so good for you!
    I like your idea for getting up just that little bit earlier to do it!

  2. I’ve recently been loving Tara Stiles’s yoga videos. They’re great quality and quick! Perfect for me. 🙂

  3. Ohh I can’t wait to read about that drink! I’m not a huge fan of peppermint, but any type of coffee gets me going.

  4. I’ve definitely done that guy’s video before!! Except I was 8 and giggling as I did it with my mom.. I take yoga a little more seriously now 😉
    That coffee looks awesome!! You definitely have to post the recipe once you’ve fine-tuned everything. And I’m beyond jealous that you get to bake cupcakes all day!
    Glad you had a great run! Have a fantastic weekend! 🙂

  5. Love Peanut Butter Runner! Her photos are gorgeous and I was so proud of her when she first started her yoga teacher training and followed her passion.
    That cupcake looks oohhhhh so delectable! I have a Rodney Yee yoga vid too. I won it during a Fitness Magazine Twitter chat! It’s pretty good – my dad has even tried it. I like the short workout length, perfect for a morning pick me up.
