New Things and Reading List

This is a two for one post today.  First in keeping with my resolution to try new things I have been doing a lot more yoga.  I do yoga once or twice a week at lunch and for the past two weeks Dave and I have done yoga in the basement after the kids go to bed.

Yoga is a great workout because even if you're tired, it is still easy to motivate yourself to go and do it, and then before you know it you've done something good.  We have found a few good yoga teachers on YouTube, but if you have any other suggestions, leave them here.  So far we have tried Yoga by Candace and YogaTX.

Since this book was on my Reading List for this year, I thought I should write about it, but I didn't really care for it.

It is a non-fiction book by an overweight woman about her body - why she is overweight, how it affects her daily life and relationships with others, etc.  It was somewhat interesting because it is a view into someone's life that is different than mine, but I didn't think it was groundbreaking stuff.  So many people write books now about anything and everything and this one just seems like another one to add to the pile.  I realized halfway through the book that I had heard her on This American Life one time, and I do not deny she is a talented writer but the book wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be.  Her style is to write in short little sentences and chapters, which can be effective sometimes, but here I felt like it was lazy writing.  It is an easy read though and it's not bad, just not great.
