Yoga and Home Improvements

I cannot believe it has been a month since my last post. I have been busy but not too busy. I guess you can say I have been distracted. However, lacrosse season has ended and summer has started. My tennis league began on Wednesday and I am looking forward to being around more this summer. I also decided to finally jump in and do the yoga challenge. 

I began on April 30 to try and complete 60 classes in 60 days. Today I finished my 13 class in 11 days. I will take a class tomorrow and then will need to take off for the weekend. It has been so awesome so far. I see major differences in just these first 11 days. Almost 1/4 of the way through! Here is my pretty little chart that hangs on the wall at Bikram Yoga Chesterfield. I get a sticker each time I complete a class!

Just for an image... here is me after a double I completed. I did a 4:30 class...rested for a half hour...then did a 6:30 class. I had to do that to make up for the days I will miss this weekend. I wish this picture could truly capture how sweaty I get in this thing. It is so hard but so awesome.

Tom and I have also had lots of fun doing house stuff. Here is Tom using his new bbq grill he got from his family for his birthday. I am so excited to grill on the patio this summer. Behind him are the veggies I am attempting to grow!

We also did our first outdoor work this past weekend. It was pretty tough. The old owners had a raised garden bed but it was all deteriorated. We decided to pull up all the railroad ties. After much work we got them up! AND CARRIED THEM TO THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE! woof.
 Next job: fill in the trench and figure out what to do with the back grass. Home ownership is fun, but exhausting.

I will try to be better and keep yall posted on my 60 day challenge and more home projects.
