It’s been a jammed pack week! First I have been house/dog siting all week (back to my house and pups and husband today!!!!!). Got to spend the week with my buddy Oliver (Oli, olister, olinator, Oli van damn, and my favorite OLI-WOOD). It’s been about 12 or 13 years I have been watching Oli. He was just a puppy!!! Amazing how fast time flies!
Monday Baron developed a cough :( So bright and early we took him to see Dr Steve at Davis Islands Animal Clinic. For you locals, if you are looking for a vet, make Dr. Steve your guy! He is awesome and Baron and Ava love him. Case in point, even though it was Baron’s visit, Ava jumped up on the table tying to get Dr. Steve’s attention!
Wednesday we got our new fence!!!!!!! BARON AND AVA ARE IN HEAVEN!!!! Pics to come.
While the fence was being put in, I was at the Rays game. My work treated us all to an afternoon of baseball. An AC’d stadium is pure freaking genius! Not even kidding. It was so hot that I think we all would have melted had it not been ac’d. Plus I think the sting rays enjoyed the AC. Yes, our baseball stadium has sting rays swimming around. We are so Florida! Thanks work for the fun afternoon!
In the tank are sting rays, sorry there are no close ups, I didn’t make it up over there to see them.
and our seats were pretty good!
Thursday’s I leave work early to make it sailing. This Thursday I left at normal time so didn’t make it to the dock in time. However, it did give me the chance to watch the race from the yacht club and snap some pics of boats coming up to the finish line. Including my crew on Time Bandit!!
The boats approaching the last mark before heading to the finish line

There they are!! And my husband waving for the camera!
And of course I did a lot of yoga. Mostly in “normal” places:
by the water
by a tree, doing tree (this is also Day 2 of the challenge with Erin Motz, see more on that below).
Then there were some random places:
on the breakfast bar in an RV (posts to follow about the RV)
For this next one, it is for a yoga challenge on Instagram. This is the first one I have done and here’s why it appealed to me. First it is by Erin Motz, she is my FAVORITE yoga teacher. She did the 30 day Yoga Challenge and she also did the Kickstarter with MyYogaPro.
What I liked about her challenge is it wasn’t about her posting a pose then everyone doing that pose.
She says it best on her website: “Starting august 1st, ill be hosting the first ever bad yogi instagram challenge to showcase how#badyogisdoit!*** it’ll be 10 days long, and each day i’ll give you a specific theme (like where, when, or with whom) and you tag #badyogisdoit along with your picture entry. you’ll pick the pose, i pick the theme. that way, everyone can participate regardless of how strong, flexible or advanced you are“.
Day 1 was your first time doing yoga. Pick what pose you couldn’t do and now it is a part of your regular practice. I choose Crow. in the beginning it was so hard to do and now I pop into Crow anywhere. Including on top of file cabinets at work (if you look closely you can see downtown Tampa in the background). It isn’t the best quality of pictures and not to mention, it was challenging because the file cabinet was moving around the entire time.
Seems appropriate I end this post with yoga as I start weekend 5 of my Yoga Teacher Training today!! Holy Crap, it’s already been 5 months!! Today we are doing 2 hours of Ashtanga and tomorrow there are two graduating students to that means two graduating yoga classes. It’s going to be a great weekend in the yoga bubble!
Hope you have a great weekend!
