Summer Solstice Yoga

Last Friday I celebrated the summer solstice with a little yoga in Times Square. For the past 11 years the Times Square alliance has hosted an all-day yoga event right in the heart of TSq. This was my first time participating and it was awesome!

I went to the 10am class and it was packed. I got there super early so I didn't have a hard time snagging a mat or finding a spot.

While I'm not really a yoga person(I think it's kind of boring), I am trying to incorporate it more into my life because I know it's good for my body.

Getting to do yoga in one of the busiest intersections in the country was definitely a unique experience and I'm definitely going to participate again next year.

June Goals

Here are a few of my goals for June:

*Eat more real food. I tend to rely on frozen meals and packaged snacks, which aren’t the best, so I want to eat better.

*Use MyFitnessPal to track calories. I want to lose a few more pounds so I feel confident in a swim suit and the only way for me to do that is to actually count my calories and make sure I stay in my goal range.

*Run! I’m going to start training for the NYC Marathon in July so I really need to use June make sure I have a steady base to start my training plan.

Weekend Scenes

I had a great weekend! Way too much food and zero exercise…oops….

Friday night I went to a dance/aerial show in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

And I spent Saturday and Sunday at the beach in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. It was my first time at Jenks and Tiki Bar – quite the experience!

This week I’m going to make an effort to clean up my diet and make it to the gym. I’m feeling quite sluggish after all the booze and fried food this weekend, so I really need to detox!
