I don't like the yoga workouts

Monday, January 18, 2010

This morning was yoga and core. I really don't understand the yoga except we do end up balancing. This is always troublesome be cause of how I have always had trouble with the legs. I afraid that I will fall. I don't know why, my legs are getting stronger with every workout. We do the superman standing on one leg. I do this better on my right than my left and it is my right ankle that gives me fits. (go figure). Jim is really helping me with this. He went to the store yesterday to get what we need for Taco Salad (made with deer meat) and brought back some ice cream but it was no fat and no sugar added. I think he is also trying to eat better (for the most part) but doesn't want to admit it. He always says that he needs to start working out on the weights but he hasn't done it yet. I have set Sunday's as no work out day. I did good with my eating yesterday.

    I'm glad Jim is helping you. Donald helps me too. I'm proud of you for being in your exercise class and trying new things.

    Hi Sister! My Jim is helping me, too. He eats out at lunch with the guys and I don't have to make much for dinner. Most of the time he just says he'll find something later.

    My depression has passed and I'm well on my way to re-losing all the weight I gained while I struggled just to try to be happy. I've lost 6 pounds this month, but still have 10 to go just to get back to my lowest weight so far. I hate that I had such a major setback, but it is what it is and I'm working on it. I may put my weight tracker back up on my page when I get back to 157.

    I've been riding my bike 30 minutes every day and doing either upper or lower body ST. I'm pushing myself on the upper body ST and now the 12 pound weights are barely a challenge.

    I guess that's all I have for now. I'm going to catch up on my Soaps before going up to the workout room for exercise. I have to push the cardio today because I had a candy bar after working my first store. We don't carry any good tasting protein bars, so I had a Payday. At least it has some protein....LOL!

    I do love yoga, although I quit when my carpal tunnel was so bad, and haven't re-started... Guess I should think about it - as long as I don't skip my other workouts, it can only help. I have real balance problems, so it helps me a lot. But I don't do some of the hard stuff, that's for sure!

    I HATED my first Yoga classes! I stopped going, but found some thigs about Yoga that I did like, and gradually built up a collection of favorite poses. I recently went back to classes, and now love them. You can read my blog YOGA to hear about my experiences with it. There is also a OMY (One Minute Yoga) team here on SP that gives you one pose a day to do for 30 seconds to a minute. With balance poses, I focus on a spot on the wall, it helps me concentrate, and I do them off the mat. You WILL get stronger!

    Its wonderful that your DH supports you on your journey as my DH also supports me. He always says he needs to workout also but hasen't done it yet. It sounds as though you are doing well with your fitness even though you don't care for the yoga. My daughter said that she didn't care for yoga a first either but she said after awhile she learned to love it. Have a great week and continued success. emoticon emoticon
