    I work at my computer all day, 4 days a week and have definitely suffered from tight hips, stiff neck and tight chest and arm muscles. I get massages twice monthly to help as well as doing yoga and getting chiropractic adjustments monthly. I think the thing that has shown me the most improvement is regular yoga classes. I am have only been going for almost a year but I really have more range of motion and less discomfort. I especially love yin yoga which I think is helping a great deal. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget to take a break every 20 minutes or so to get up and stretch. Think I need to set a little timer to stay on track with that. :-)

    General pet peeves:  I also get annoyed with people talking too loudly before AND after class.  I mean really - it's not a cocktail party!!  Before is a bit irritating but after is really a vibe destroyer!  Just my opinion but I have been trying to remember what my teachers have suggested which is to consider the threshold of the doorway to our yoga studio the point at which you remind yourself to relax, let go of everything 'out there' and focus on calm, etc.  Most of us speak softly but there are still a few regulars that can't seem to help themselves.
     
    Also, people coming in late is very disruptive as well as some who SLAP their mats down loudly!!  GEEEEZE!!!  Okay, I'm working on the judgmental thang!    :-)

    This morning, always a class favorite (and a personal fave, who am I kidding?) - an awesome shoulder stretch with graphic and video.

    I feel the same way as you. I work at my computer, 5 days a week, around 10 hours per day with minimal walking. My shoulders hurt really badly after I graduate from school (slouching every time!) and enter the workforce. I go for a massage at least once a month previously, and usually the shoulders hurt again the next day. Even the therapists say that the knots in my shoulder are so tight. Then came yoga, probably the only thing that worked for me. Feel my shoulders loosening and it doesnt hurt anymore.

    Loving my elliptical at home right now because you can get an intense workout in less time.  Also mixing in weights with my weekly yoga classes and bike riding around the beaches here.

    I don't mean this to be a downer but I have just re-read a book that I loved called Losing Your Parents - Finding Yourself by Victoria Secunda.  I know it sounds depressing but it isn't and is amazing and very eye opening.  I was blown away the first time I read it and saw many similarities in my husband's family after both his parents passed. It wouldn't normally be the type of thing I'd read but after I saw her interviewed when the book launched, I was hooked.  Here is a quick description:
     
    A groundbreaking book that explores the impact on one's life of losing a parent in adulthood. Drawing from her study of 100 adults and her own experiences, Secunda addresses a myriad of issues. She also explores how losing a parent reshapes one's sense of self, causing a reevaluation of choices not possible before.

    At the moment i read "fierce medicine" by Ana Forrest, the founder of Forrest Yoga. It's about the healing aspect of yoga, the transformative power that lies within mind and body and the absolute amazing story of Ana's life from being a shy and aggressive drug addict to a healthy and balanced yoga hero. Very inspiring!!!

    Apart from walking my dog for an hour and taking a shower, I have literally sat in front of my computer all day long ( over ten hours - major tech problems today, ugh!) and it started irritating my left hip and radiating into my low back. Gah! I'm a yoga teacher, yeah, but in running YBC I am always at my computer and the constant sitting impacts my hips and low back.
     
    It got me thinking about how people's jobs directly impact how their bodies feel. I have some friends who are massage therapists and they've always got tennis elbow, other friends are teachers and their feet always hurt.
     
    Does your job impact how your body feels? What do you do about it?

    Well, that depends!!  Today I'm carrying It Cosmetics Celebration Illumination Powder Foundation in 'Fair'.  It is great for sheer coverage where you need it and best applied with a brush.  I also apply under my eyes with a brush to hide dark circles and it works like a charm without looking heavy 'cause we don't need any enhancement of fine  lines now do we? :-)  Also using Maybeline BabyLips lip balm.  Love the sheerness of the colors. And for a little extra sass I apply a little Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip gloss in 'Fashionably Late'.  It has a really pretty opaline sheen over other colors or alone.  I also used a dark bronze-brown liner pencil from Mally Cosmetics to line the inner rims.  It gives a cool smoky look but not as harsh as a black.  Can you tell I used to work in the industry?? LOL!!  As for MASCARA.....(since Candace mentioned it) I am always looking for the perfect one.  Right now I've gone back to an old fav:  Great Lash Waterproof in black although it's not the ultimate I just refuse to pay a lot for something that you should throw away every 3 to 4 months so I'll keep trying new drugstore brands on the the great hunt.  :-)  I always have a large collection of brands that I'm experimenting with.  One of my favorite makeup gurus can be found at lisaeldridge.com.  She is a well-known British makeup artist and has great videos on Youtube with all product info.  Love her!!

    Yay! A new topic! 
    In my current city, my gym is an hour and fifteen min away, so I really have to talk myself into going because it's like an all day event 
    Recently, I've been doing more HIIT workouts - (jump rope is KILLER and I can do it from anywhere which I love), sprints at the track, and when I do make it to the gym I'll do a treadmill or bike HIIT workout (25 or 30 min sprint intervals) and then lift weights.

    I'd love to hear more about your HIIT workouts. That's something I've always been curious about.

    I try run a few days a week and incorporate bodyweight workouts. I like doing push ups, burpees, squats etc. I use Tone It Up workouts and some of Sarah Fits videos. They are really easy to incorporate into your schedule.

    I started yoga because my weight training took away my flexibility.
    I lift 3 days a week and now do yoga 3-4 days a week.

    Today was my first Yin Yoga class.
    I didn't even know this existed and now I want to go every day!
    It was an hour of intense stretching and it hurt and felt good at the same time.

    I love them because they're done fast! I used to do 45 min cardio sessions and my husband was like why are you doing that? It's not going to get you what you want to achieve. (He's against long-distance running because it burns muscle or something instead of burning fat? I have no idea.) Anyway! My jump rope hiit routine is here, and for other hiit routines I just use youtube. Search fitness blender. It's a husband and wife team, and I like that they have a variety of lengths and are always switching it up.
