Sunday, the 17th day of summer, brought a new, soothing experience for me. I tried hot yoga for the first time. My regular workout routine has been on hold this week due to my back acting up and I’d been hearing quite a bit about hot yoga from my sister and other people too. It seemed like time to give it a try.
I wasn’t sure what to expect walking into the super-heated room. I don’t know what the exact temperature was but it wasn’t overwhelming. I sweated, that’s for sure! The instructor’s voice was soothing, and he was helpful to newbie me in getting the correct form for poses. I enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again sometime.
I continued my soothing day once again enjoying the new-found comfort of the air mattress in my pool. I thought it would be nice if I could show you my view as I lazily floated, drifting in gentle circles. I was wearing sunglasses, so to make the photos as close to what I was seeing as I could, I added the polarizing filter to my lens to be my camera’s “sunglasses”.
In a very unusual situation for us, just Meghan and I were home for dinner Sunday night. So, like with Sarah the night before, we enjoyed dinner al fresco. After dinner we watched the movie “Dirty Dancing” – Meghan had never seen it before.
Can you believe it has been 27 years since that movie came out? Ay-yi-yi!
I ran errands while hubby worked on fixing our leaking A/C. We have central air and it was leaking water all over the basement.
For not knowing what was for dinner when I started the day, I turned out a pretty good one in my opinion. A little mixed grill of kebabs with help from Cooking Light magazine:
The ones on the left are yogurt-garlic chicken with zucchini and the ones on the right are southwestern style beef with cherry tomatoes and avocado.
