PiYo & Weight Watchers 8/21/13

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

So I went to a PiYo class last night. This is an hour long class in which we did a combination of pilates and yoga. I thought about it, and it has been over a year since I last went to any type of fitness class; and I could really tell. Wow, this was a real work out, and I felt it. I feel great today, and I slept better than I have in a while last night.

I could not believe how out of shape I have gotten though. I used to go to aerobics 2 nights a week and I was doing good; last night I was sweaty, out of breath, and I turned so red it alarmed the staff at the gym (I turn red very easily and assured them I was fine). I love my Wii Fit, but it just is not keeping me as active as I thought it was. The funny part? I do the yoga on Wii Fit, and when we had to do Downward Dog last night I could not get my balance right without the Wii trainer to tell me "You are putting too much weight on your hands". I felt so clumsy :-)

Tonight I am going to my first Weight Watchers meeting. At first I was not too sure about Weight Watchers. I know a lot of people who have used it and been successful, but I was thinking that $43 per month was a lot to pay for some meetings and online tools, when I can use SP for free. Then I thought about how much I spend each month on junkfood and realized that it is a good trade. Do not go to Royal Farms or McDonalds this month, spend $43 on tools to help me get healthier. Got it. Hope it works. Besides, I find that my SP usage is sporadic, maybe if I am paying for the tools I will use them with more conviction. If I don't I will cancel after the month is up. Either way, I will keep using SP too.

Unitl later...
