Bikram Yoga - So Totally Not My Bag!

In true Try It Girls fashion, I tried it, and without question, I will never try it again.  Don't get me wrong, loads of men and women love sticky, sweaty, impossibly hot yoga and I guess I can see the draw.  I was able to bend in ways that I would have never thought I could and the amount of sweat that was dripping off of me could justify a really intense workout, but all in all, not my bag.

Super-sized easy bake oven - got to love bikram yoga!

Ok ... what is that smell???
Oh ... it's coming from that smoking hot easy bake oven of a room.
So i'm sitting on this bench with Tasha and Reen (just outside the easy bake), waiting patiently for our turn to go in. I'm watching people stumbling out (from the class before) ... all wet and ... hold it ... pretty much naked. That looked like a bra... I think those are boxers. What am I wearing you ask??? YOGA PANTS and a tank. I learn pretty quick that this was a big mistake.

I think I'd rather SKYDIVE ... again!!!

So... I keep hearing about how amazing laser hair removal is. Seriously??? The girls keep recommending it - encouraging me to show up for the next big adventure ... in less than 2 months (and counting down!).
I admit it ... i'm not great with pain. Somehow I managed to have kids without drugs - not sure how that happened, but its not like I was given much of a choice! You wouldn't believe the words that come out of my mouth when I decide its time for a bikini wax!

I can live with hair. I think. As long as there is some kind of maintenance program :) I just cant sign up for this - sorry to disappoint you all. When I hear about the experience ... that it feels like an elastic band ... snapped over and over again ... over your woo-hoo ... i'm in no rush to get in line. For the meantime, i'm embracing my current body ... all shaved, waxed and trimmed :)
Just before the girls went in for 'the big day' I remember telling Reen about the time I went skydiving. I did a tandem-jump the first time ... almost 13,000 feet up. Honestly - i'm glad I did it - it was on my personal 'check list'. All I remember is how my face was literally stretched back to my ears from the wind ... and the huge amount of saliva that pelted it because I was so much in shock I couldn't keep my mouth closed! My free-fall lasted almost a minute before my chute opened. At this point, I finally took a breath. I remember being sooooo excited to skydive. After I did it, I looked at my husband (then - boyfriend) and told him clearly that this was the first and only time. Thankfully, I survived and I have the picture to prove it!
The point of this long winded story... When Reen tried (...ever so nicely) to encourage me to join them in their laser removal adventure, I simply responded "I'd rather skydive"! Looking forward to the next adventure though ladies! A little Zumba???? - Jennie

Hot Bikram Yoga...

Well I asked the girls if anyone wanted to try Bikram Yoga. To tell the truth I had no idea what it was all about. I did know that you could burn up to 1100 calories a session. That was all I needed to know. I was up for it. I had never done any kind of yoga prior to this, so I really had no clue. The website said that Bikram yoga was perfect for beginners. So I thought I was prepared... hahaha right!
