jackieshadows My little foster bird Luna almost made me late this morning. Mojo was being grumpy and had a temper tantrum in her happy hut. So she didn't get to come out this morning. 6h

jackieshadows After a week of fun tough workouts I was so happy to end and restart the week at my home studio @embraceyogadc Took a perfect level 1.5 #EmbraceFlow class. There was no pressure or yelling for who can hold the longest, get there fasted, do one more round. I had my fill of that all week. This class was for me, to rejuvenate my mind and body. That doesn't mean the class was easy. Teacher Carl had us doing many one-legged standing poses. Much more than I'm used to, that I felt like I did my best standing split ever. No hands on the mat, the longest I've held, and a deeper stretch. Certainly not the easiest pose. I chose to challenge myself in almost every way but mindfully because I was my own teacher, Carl was my guide. He created a safe space that welcomed taking things up or down a level. And I did both. 1d

jackieshadows Tara kicked my butt today! I fell off for a while, been busy, not making the gym in weeks. My legs felt so weak and were out of control shaking. Gotta get back into the routine and strengthen up. #SolidCore just gets harder and harder. Like each damn time! 6d

jackieshadows I'm fostering this #blueQuaker parrot via Phoenix Landing. The adoption coordinators told me to change "Buddy's" name, it's terrible. Haha She's a 2-year old female. She is beautiful so she needs a pretty girl name or something unique. These are some names I came up with. Which one should I pick?
Aviana "Avi" for short
Amy
Echo
Emma
Luna (moon)
Lumi (snow)

jackieshadows Fell in love with so many animals today. This little girl melted my heart when she placed her paws in my hands. Totally need to start volunteering with dogs. All my years of animal planet and pet sitting have prepared me. #dogwhisperer
Hopefully, Scarlett and @dunn.md end up together once he's out of the marine corp. #puppylove

jackieshadows I don't know that I'll ever enjoy or be comfortable to do handstands but I'm choosing to challenge myself and play with inversions more. Plus it's a great core workout. ;) Putting all that weight on my hands usually hurts my bad wrist but today it felt up for the challenge. Then it was time for a mindful beginner #embraceflow class. #namaste 3w
  •   yogijmiles I can help you with that 🏾🏽 3w
  •   iteufela Love ur pink hair dye matching the wall keep up w the handstands! 3w
  •   jackieshadows @iteufela thanks!! It's all faded now from the sun. Hard to keep it bright. Are you dying your hair blue soon? I remember your mom saying you were thinking about dying it. 3w

jackieshadows My Body Sculpt class was cancelled today due to the new studio room flooding again. I had to be self motivated today and hit the weight room, which is also newly renovated! When did this happen? It's been a while since I've stepped into the weight room, had to look around for my fav machines haha I actually enjoy weight lifting but not cardio, I ran out of the cardio room. "F that! I get my cardio by walking and through Body Combat!" 4w

jackieshadows Trying out some wrist curls post Body Combat class, to strengthen my baby wrists. No back to back classes for me today. I was exhausted. Just finished up with a little foam rolling. Exercise is a blast when you find something fun to do. 1mon

jackieshadows I think I'm in love. Took my first #solidcore class today with instructor Mary at the brand new location at #mosaicdistrict I've heard the hype and really enjoyed the tough workout. Mary made us work our entire body in a high intensity/low impact workout. Ivana and Rob at @embraceyogadc worked my core so much this week with all their inversion play, that my body was on fire during my first class at @solidcoreva Also, bought a cute [happy] shirt after class. I'm official now! Can't wait until my next class! 1mon
