Adding Yoga To My Exercises

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

This morning after doing my 95 minutes of water aerobics, I had time to shower, dress and attend a new yoga class. I've done "Pilates and Stretch" but have always wanted to try yoga. I loved it! It was a great way to stretch out after my morning workout. I was surprised at how well I was able to keep up with the class. I loved the way the teacher said, "No pain and breathing are the focus of this class. If at any time a move hurts, stop and just concentrate on your breathing." After the class I felt so relaxed! Wow! I think I'll do yoga again!

    I looooove yoga! In fact, my yoga class is one of the reasons I'm on SP now. I felt like I wanted to go as far with it as I possibly could, and at my present weight I felt like I was missing out on some of the more advanced asanas. They're coming so much easier now...woohoo!

Congrats to you for jumping in and trying something new. It's wonderful that you found something you really like. Keep it up!

Here's to exploring new frontiers!

Glorious Sunshine And Cold Today

Monday, March 05, 2012

I can't believe how bright it was outside this morning! Here in Florida the sun was shining well before 7a.m. The sky was a gorgeous, clear blue. The sun was warm and the air was cold this morning but that didn't stop me from heading to the pool for a good workout. I have enjoyed every moment of the sunshine today!

    Me, too! I took a new walk this morning and I just kept on going for almost an hour before I got back. I think I might do it again this afternoon!

Craft Fair

Sunday, March 04, 2012

Yesterday hubby and I walked around the Bloom'n Arts Festival in our town. We didn't buy anything but just enjoyed walking and talking as we looked at beautiful works of art. Everything was crafted by hand and beauty abounded. It was a great day!

Good Workout Today

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Despite the crowded water aerobics class this morning, I had a great workout. I think that you get out of it exactly what you put into it. There were 35 people in the class this morning so space was tight. I simply strapped on a floatation belt and moved to the outer edges of the class. I was able to move around way more than the folks in the shallow water and my workout was much more aerobic. As the old saying goes, Instead of griping when troubles are thrown your way - When life deals you lemons, make lemonade!!! I happen to love lemonade too!

Tickled Pink

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

A lady at the gym stopped me yesterday and asked me what I've done to change my body so drastically. "You've lost a lot of weight haven't you?" she asked. Seeing as how the scale has been going in the wrong direction lately, I said that I was losing but I seemed to be gaining lately.

The woman said, "But I've noticed that your body has changed shape - I mean it's changed a lot! You must be doing something."

One of my friends turned to her and said, "It's the 2.5 hours a day of exercise that she does!" I laughed at that because it is indeed true and my friends kid me about it.

"Wow!" the lady said. "I think I'm going to work out more then!"

I was tickled pink!

    It is so nice when someone notices. This morning two of my neighbors stopped me on my walk to tell me how skinny I was looking! But my scale is not moving well, either.

    That's just a little reminder that it's not always about the number on the scale
