Doing yoga and loving it

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

This is doubly thrilling because I usually hate exercise. Well, okay, that's not entirely true, I don't hate exercise. I hate getting on a treadmill or any other repetitive sort of routine. Hmm. So does that mean at some point I will get bored with yoga? Not sure, but it's something to be aware of. Hopefully I can just change up the routine and that will keep my interest. But at this point, probably because it's new to me, I'm really enjoying it.

I am also enjoying the feeling of taking care of myself. That should be enough alone, right? But after just the first session I notice it relieves a lot of the stress in my neck and shoulders from sitting at a computer all day. I haven't taken any ibuprofen in days. Hurray.

So, I've made two 15-min yoga sessions as SparkStreaks. Let's see how long I can keep it up!

    I'd be bored with a treadmill too. But I've been doing yoga for almost a year now, and I never get bored with it, because I'm always being challenged and always seeing improvements.

Its good to switch things up. In addition to yoga, I look for other workouts that I enjoy. I sometimes do cardio kickboxing, or kettlebell, and just recently I started doing a cardio workout with stability ball.

Good luck with your yoga streak!
