Fit but you know it.
Every year, I say that I should get in better shape, and every year I manage to accomplish about 7 weeks total of fitness. For 2010, I'm attempting to be less severe and more serene with my workout...by eaaaasing in.
Years ago, Brother-elli got into yoga through a book called Richard Hittleman's 28 Day Yoga Plan (which also rules because the model wears a leotard AND tights a la Jane Fonda in all the example shots.) Brandons's super in-shape self bought me the book for a following holiday, and I didn't even make it through the first week of exercises. So, Step 1, reconcile with Mr. Hittlemann. Step 2, be active in some way for at least 30 minutes a day. This exertion need not be a gym session; I could do yoga, take The Boys for a vigorous walk, kick some Wii Fit arse. In 2010, I just want to be moving every day.
For some inspiration, I submit the photos of my co-worker's amazing sis Missy doing AcroYoga here in The Bean with teacher Bonnie Argo. I never even knew this discipline existed, but anyone can easily admit -- if a body can do that, then I can move my rump roast for 1800 seconds a day.
