15 days without exercise!!! :(

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

This is a complain to myself. I have been 15 days without doing any exercise, one week because I had friends at home for a week, after that I hurted my big toe missing a step that means a week with pain, after that Monday and Tuesday off from work thinking going to the gym and I woke up with a big pain on my right shoulder, looks like muscular spasm.
I thought that i will start the week without carbs and I didn't, that's why I am so disapointed with myself.
What I can do?????? I feel bad :(

    Ahh, my soulmate you must be! We definitely all go through this! I so feel your pain, especially when you wrote, "I thought that i will start the week without carbs and I didn't, that's why I am so disapointed with myself." If I could lose a pound for every time I SAY I'm going to eat a certain way...I'd weigh a lot less!!

Don't worry, you'll get back to it. I have faith in you!

    Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and begin again!! We all have weeks like that - I had a week without exercise myself last week. But today I started over - WE CAN DO THIS!! emoticon

    I recently had the same problem with my little toe (kicked something with it) so I didn't exercise for a week (or more?). I just started walking for 10 minutes a day to start rebuilding my routine. I am now back exercising regularly a minimum of 5 days a week. You can do this. It is hard to start back but worth it. Take it in small steps.

  You can start back in again! Soon you'll forget about this exercise free streak and will be excited about your new exercise streak!

Yoga!!!!, really interesting.

Friday, May 24, 2013

Yesterday I 've had my first Yoga class, i love it !!! I haven't realize that i can stretch my body in the way that i did yesterday. One of the girls who was in the same class told me that she felt that her body start changing after she started yoga, what do you think??
Above you can read a information article about Yoga that I found on Spark People website.
I'll love to hear from you if you have any experience practicing Yoga. emoticon

Relax Your Mind and Body with Yoga
Yoga: An Introduction
-- By The American Institute of Cancer Research

Is stress wearing you down? Are your muscles tense and your posture less than perfect? Bringing yoga, a touch of Eastern culture, into your Western lifestyle may be the perfect answer to help you unwind both your body and mind.

People of all ages and physical abilities have been practicing yoga for more than 5,000 years for general well-being. Today, an estimated 12 million Americans practice yoga for conditions as varied as addiction, fatigue and weight management.

De-stress and Lower Your Health Risks
Studies show that yoga, like many forms of physical activity, can actually help relieve stress. Emotional stress from daily life often contributes to physical stresses like muscle tension and constricted breathing. Because of its impact on the circulatory system, stress is also linked to cardiovascular disease. By alleviating physical and emotional stress, you may reduce your risk of heart disease and other illnesses.

Some hospitals are making yoga and meditation classes available to cancer patients, and reductions in stress levels have been observed. It is yet unclear, however, whether stress reduction influences long-term prognosis for cancer. But studies show that stress relief helps bolster the immune systemís ability to fight diseases, including cancer.

Yoga reduces stress by encouraging deep, rhythmic breathing. It also promotes relaxation by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to each part of the body. Some forms of yoga include meditation or the repetition of a soothing sound or phrase.

Because yoga also lengthens muscles, stretches joints and limbers ligaments, the exercises may actually help reverse some physical effects of aging like arthritis, stiff joints and general aches and pains.

So, take a deep breath, and open your mind to this ancient form of exercise.

Pointers for Starting Yoga

Start out with simple standing and sitting poses. Some forms can give you an intense workout. If in doubt, ask the instructor to clarify what will be taught.
As a beginner, it is advisable to choose a gentle, slow form of yoga. Consider one of the following:

    I've taken a lot of yoga classes and I have several yoga DVR's. I love the stretch and I'm sure that's what slimmed my waist.

    I feel the same way. I was in a rush before but am finding out that slow and steady is more promising and less frustrating.
