    Getting Our Licks In!

    Quick check in: Did Jari Love Ripped 1000. I think I only ever did this one once before. I remember I didn't really like this it as much as the others which is why I never did it but I'm glad I gave it another try. It's a good workout. I still wanted to get in some yoga so i just did a short...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    Yesterday I did my 2nd outdoor yoga class and I had a pretty good turnout. The students seem to really enjoy it and asked if we could do another one next week. The weather was beautiful although some students are having difficulty adapting to doing yoga in a different environment. It takes...

    Sunscreen Recommendation

    I have sensitive skin that reacts badly to a lot of sunscreens. I like Lancaster or Vichy sunscreens. They cost more than coppertone but I'm willing to pay more for skin care products if they work for me.

    I miss my Dad!

    I lost my father to lung cancer when I was twelve and I still miss him. There are always moments such as milestones, fathers day, and those random moments that come out of nowhere where I really miss him and wish I had more time with him. I feel very lucky to have had such a great dad, if only...

    Creative Outlets-whats yours?

    I like to draw and doodle in my sketchbook. Lately, I have been drawing a lot of mandala type of designs which is very relaxing for me. You just start in the middle and work your way out in a circular pattern. I have been trying out different media for different effects: pen, markers, coloured...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    Hi Cathletes! I just checked the weather and looks like it's going to be a beautiful day tomorrow for my yoga in the park.:) Yesterday I did Shiva Rea's Yogini DVD which I didn't like when I first tried it, but I really enjoy it now. I'm glad I continued to use it since it's a really good...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    I'm still around but keeping busy and trying to get outdoors as much as possible since the weather has been so nice. I hope you don't stop the check-in! I know I don't check in regularly but it's nice to know it's here whenever I come on to CatheNation. So I have added in some more DVD's to...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    Hello Cathletes! Today I dusted off Jari Love: Ripped to The Core. I haven't done this one in ages and I was happy to see that it was a lot easier than the last time I did it!:) Must be all those Chaturanga's I have been doing in yoga! Later on I did Shiva Rea's Daily energy: Solar Meditation...

    Extreme Couponing

    They were showing a marathon of back to back episodes and after a while all the episodes started to seem the same to me. It kind of looks like organized hoarding to me. There was one guy that donated a lot of the stuff to charity which I thought was really cool but here in Canada I don't even...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    I finally caught up on all the posts I missed. It took a while, but I'm now up to speed on what you have all been up to. I'm sad to see that Shoegal still hasn't been back. I hope she's doing well wherever she is. I decided to paint my bedroom which disrupted my yoga practice a little bit...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    Hi Ladies! Sorry I have been MIA for a while but so much has been going on and I just didn't make time to come on to Cathenation for a while.:o So, the biggest thing is that I lost my job. I'm actually relieved, since I really wasn't happy there anymore and it was causing me a lot of stress.:)...

    WARNING Smartphone users

    I have also heard of this before. In addition to this, people share a lot of personal information online with a false sense of security because they have their settings on "private".

    Getting Our Licks In!

    Dark, gloomy, and very wet here in T.O.!:( I've been very busy this week at work. We are understaffed, and in addition to my own work, I am crosstraining on payroll so it's been busy. I went to physio on Mon & Wed and they gave me a pillow to sleep on which i am getting used to and a back rest...

    Getting Our Licks In!

    This morning I went for an assessment for physiotherapy. While I was not seriously injured in my car accident, I still have lingering effects of minor whiplash, such as muscle tenderness in the center of my shoulder blades and I was really concerned about some periodic popping/clicking in my...

    21 day yoga challenge

    Hi Farah, Great job on completing 10 days of your challenge! :D You are off to a great start. What you were saying about about practicing piano, my own yoga teacher has said about yoga: It's far more beneficial to practice yoga daily, even if it's only for a few minutes, rather than practicing...

    new vegetarian

    My advice would be to avoid getting caught up in all of those processed soy vegetarian products out there. They really aren't that good for you, in my opinion. Take a good multi vitamin, but more importantly eat a good variety of foods and avoid getting into a food rut. If you enjoy cooking...

    Hi David! Sorry to hear about your nagging cold. If you feel up to it, I say go ahead and workout but go easy on yourself so you can fight that bug. Even though you may want to get back to exercise you don't want to push too hard and then have this cold linger around longer than it needs to.

    Chapped Lips?

    I also really like Burt's Bees lip balm. I have the honey, pomegranate, and acai berry. My lips have improved since switching to these. I was slathering my lips with vaseline and palmers (which is also petroleum jelly based) but they seem to make my lips even more flaky and dry which is why I...
