Maybe some of you have heard of Athleta

It's a magazine that comes every so often in the mail. They sell yoga pants, running shoes, and other exercising clothes/accessories. The thing I love most about this catalog is the photos! They show the models doing some crazy-pretzel-shaped-yoga-pose, or lifting some huge weight with their massively-super-toned arms and stuff like that. 

The photos are all really inspiring and they really tempt me towards dropping out of school and becoming a yoga professional. 

Anyway, I went home this weekend, and I was flipping through this month's Athleta catalog that I found on the couch....

....and this is what I saw.....


As soon as I saw this, I just HAD to try it!!!! So I grabbed the only person who would be willing to attempt such a thing in the middle of our living mum. 

Here we go! It only took my mum and I just a few attempts to get to this point! 

My little brother, Travis thought we were pretty amazing, so he wanted to try too! 

Then he wanted to try and lift me. All I can say is that he is a really good sport for an 8 year old! Especially since I kinda sorta landed on top of him, and nearly crushed his rib cage. 


Whoops! There goes mum! 

We were laughing so hard, which means it was the best 5 minuets I have ever wasted!

Once Athleta sees these photos we will be hired immediately as their #1 yoga studs. 

Don't roll your eyes at're just jealous.
