Where young people go to retire...

Pin It Now!

Tonight is the premiere of the new show Portlandia.  
I can't wait to see how Portland is portrayed. 

This is supposed to be a sketch comedy about two locals, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, living life in bridgetown.  You'll have to check it out!

Portlandia looks hilarious!

Resolution Progress Check-In: Week 1

Pin It Now! Well it's been one week since my 2011 resolution post and I'm happy to report that I've made some progress!  

Yesterday I started at my local Bikram Yoga studio.  I was prepared to sweat, but I had no idea what Bikram would actually be like.  Whoa!  It was very difficult, but I felt amazing afterwards.  It relieved so much stress and all of my muscles felt warm and strong - exactly the feeling you want after a hard workout.  Here in Oregon there's not much opportunity to sweat, so it also did wonders for my skin.  I can't wait to go back tomorrow!

I've also been tracking my calorie and water intake.  Lately I've been bad about drinking water, so it's really important to track it so I know how much to drink and it forces me to drink more!  

As for the calories, I have a limit each day and have been very good about staying within that range.  I've been eating a lot of soups lately, which are filling, but low in calories.  I've also been eating more fiber and taking probiotics and a great pre-natal vitamin.  {Prenatals are great for ALL women, not just pregnant women}  

I think I'm making good progress towards a healthier, happier life!  How are your New Year's resolutions coming along?
