Life Lately // Yoga, Holidays, Kayla Itsines and the bump back down toreality

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I have had the best snoozy, lazy Sunday morning for a while. My usual 8:45am Sunday yoga class was fully booked so I took the opportunity to sleep in a little and start the day slowly. It's good for the soul! Made even better when your boyfriend brings you freshly brewed coffee with almond milk in bed :)

This week has been tough. Just for the simple reason of getting back into the 'going to work' mode following an amazing time away in the USA. I will be bringing you some photos from my travel this coming week so watch out for that post. The good news is that I am now only two weeks away from starting my Yoga Teacher Training adventure. I am so nervous but so excited at the same time. It is a residential course so I will be in a yoga bubble for the whole three weeks. I am hoping to bring you updates as and when I can.

I started a new workout plan then decided it wasn't for me. I started following the Kayla Itsines works on Monday. Monday was a leg workout, they are basically hardcore circuit workouts. There are two circuits which you follow twice through for seven minutes each. Boy did it kill my legs! I was so so sore for two days afterwards. On Thursday I did the abs and arm workout... I am still sore now. Yesterday I decided that although the workout plan is VERY effective (hello abs after 5 days) it isn't for me. I can't afford to be sore for days after a workout when I have yoga to practice. So it's yoga, yoga, yoga for me for the next two weeks with some light cardio thrown in.

While we were out in the USA we spent a day cycling up and down the beaches from Santa Monica to Venice Beach. We hired some beach cruisers and I totally fell in love with cycling again! Since returning home I have been doing my research and hopefully a pretty beach cruiser (with gears!) will make it's way into my life this summer. I think it's a great way to get out in the lovely weather and it will be a good way for Matt and I to get some fun workouts in while enjoying the weekends.

Have a fun week everyone!
