To Perceive and Expel

My name is Kate! Hello! Below is a combination of random thoughts, photographic inspirations, and reviews of shows/music. You can follow my other blog which chronicals my new life as Mama to my sweet little baby Jack who was born April 12th 2011. www.jackpjarrett.tumblr.com Thanks for visiting!
On our lunch break the other day, we head to Lake Holt which is just a few minutes down the road from the hospital. There, we are surrounded by a peaceful serenity! And why not decompress a little bit and do some yoga! 
I think yoga is best done outside on a nice day. Some of my favorite memories of the music and art festivals I have attended was going to the outdoor yoga sessions in the morning. Not much beats feeling the soft breeze against your skin without the distraction of mirrors and artificial lights. Best in the shade, but feeling the warm sun. The lake adds a nice touch!
There aren’t many benefits to working in Butner, NC, but having this little treat near by is definitely one of them.
Huffington Post highlights the benefits of a mid day workout HERE. Study’s show a mid day workout boosts productivity, creativity, and energy (Good bye 2:00 sleepiness!)
Thankful for my lunch breaks!! (In hindsight I wish I bent my right leg more- working on flexibility)
Also, it’s super important to stretch out those muscles if you are weight lifting. It can help prevent injury, and also help range of motion. I often end my session with 5-10 minutes of yoga, and practice my Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) as it leave me feeling relaxed and focused. My favorite is the Pigeon Pose for those stubborn and always stiff IT Bands (especially for us ladies).

So this is Kayla’s stomach after Phase 1 of Jamie Eason Middleton’s Live Fit, which is four weeks long and is the “bulking” stage. We have been doing 30 second Sprint/60 second jog hill sprints 2x a week (even though it’s not really recommended in the program). We didn’t want to lose our cardio fitness because we worked so hard to gain it! 

We will have a real (non-smart phone) pictures up in the next two weeks showing off our progress, and hopefully will do it at the end as well. The last phase includes High and Low carb days that will surely kill us, but the goal is to shed serious body fat.

Easter has always been a special holiday for us- It was Jack’s first holiday, and in his three years on planet Earth, he has already celebrated four. He also grasped the concept of looking for eggs far before the concept of opening presents. 

It is also a time where we have actually managed to take a picture of Jack to show how much he has changed within a year with his special little bunny Cindy made when he was an infant. 

We had a great easter (and a healthy one minus the cheesecake and chocolates!) and the weather was super nice so we were able to spend sometime outside. 

Looking forward to celebrating Josh and Jack’s first Canadian Thanksgiving in the fall! It’s been 10 years since I have celebrated thanksgiving at home, so I am especially looking forward to it.
