“A piece of fruit never made anyone fat.” Thank you! So sick of diets that won’t allow you to eat the beautiful, healthy, natural food God put on this earth. Gimme a break. Just show some self control and don’t eat a pound of grapes at a time, ok? ;)

You just gotta respect this guy. Dew Manning went from fit to fat to fit again just to prove a point and to “walk a mile” in his clients shoes.

inspiring on so many levels

I followed his blog as he went through this. AWESOME.

You know, I don’t get why people even bother with personal trainers anymore. You can just get all your workout and diet advice from Facebook; who needs someone who know what they’re talking about? A very sarcastic and wise soul

I seriously can’t take it anymore. I’m going out on a huge ranting limb on this, and I’m sure very little care, but I am sick and tired of hearing excuse after excuse from people refusing to help themselves. Complaint after complaint about their bodies, but when given the option to do something about it. They just sit and stare blankly. I weighed 210 in high school, and while I am nowhere near happy with where I am now, you don’t see me complaining sitting on the couch saying I’m not flexible enough for yoga, or I need to practice cardio BEFORE going to the gym. I mean seriously. You get what you work for. Quit handing me excuses and complaints in the same breath. Every time you do, I lose just a little more respect. It can be done. I’m breathing, yoga practicing, long distance running, weight lifting, healthy eating proof.

I meant to write a post before I got here, explaining about my yoga journey in life so far, and that just didn’t happen. And seeing as though in the past 48 hours, I’ve looked at Facebook for a total of about 45 seconds, that might help you understand just how insanely busy this next 15 days will be. 

8:30am-9:00pm. Every day. Including weekends. For 15 days straight. Thats a lot of knowledge being pounded into my brain. All I want to do is sleep as soon as Im done for the day. I don’t even want to veg out with tv really, I just want bedtime. 

And food. But that’s because I somehow stupidly decided to pair this experience with the Clean diet, but Im hoping ill end up being ok with that. At most I will get an hour of work out a day while I’m here on days that I can get up early enough to hit the gym. 

Anyways, I wanted to post a few thoughts every day while I was here, just pass on bits of interesting facts or personal lightbulbs as I go. It won’t be as in-depth as it could be, or I would be typing twelve hours a day, because its all fascinating. But here’s a MINISCULE teeny mini mind snatch of Day 1 & 2.


Day One: Introductions

"Do what challenges you the most"
Realization that I’ve been instructed incorrectly through 99% of yoga classes
Balancing the body is far more complex than you would think it is. 
I have tightened up so much and lost so much of my fluid flexibility. Lost so much / tight
I’m really struggling with my desire to train to build this muscle like I have for the past year, knowing that I am now struggling with what used to come easy in yoga.
However, I do know I can build back to it rather easily, because I haven’t lost as much ground as it feels.
Day Two: Group practice, Theory, Anatomy, Partner/Acro Yoga

"98% of your body is brand new every 365 days"
Pigeon is a horrible pose for the mass majority of us.
Most of us have been doing Triangle wrong for years.
Emily and I  created a new partner yoga pose, “Horse pulls the Plow”
AcroYoga is the scariest fun you can do with just your body.
