Dogs + Yoga = Doga

It's way too hot outside to play tennis, so hot I can't accomplish anything else in the evening if we play tennis.
It's also way too hot to get in my normal lunchtime workouts. Last week I gave it a shot, worked out at lunch, cooled off a little in the locker room, put my jeans back on, went back to work and felt as though my jeans were painted on and needed to be burned off. Lesson Learned: Skinny Jeans + Lunchtime workout + 105 degree heat = Really uncomfortable afternoon.

Enter: Body by Bethenny Yoga DVD
 Ahhhhhhhh! It's a great workout. (Read: I was reeeally sore after the first time!) And I can do it in the comfort of my own air conditioned living room. And when I'm finished, I'm not a disgusting sweaty mess that has to peel her clothes off and get directly into a cold shower. Win. Win. Win.

Even Cooper and Nigel enjoyed some yoga with me this weekend!
What are you all doing to workout in this heat?

it's days like these (or should i say ALL summer long) that i'm thankful to have a treadmill in my house. i just bought "yogalosophy" by the yoga instructor that jennifer aniston uses. i'm planning on trying it out tomorrow. if i don't like it i will have to check this one out! i'm super picky about yoga videos though...i love denise austin, but her voice killlllls me!

I've recently become hooked on kettle bells. Jillian Michaels has a great dvd workout based on them.
