the love is gone

as quickly as it started, it ended
or so it seems.
after one weekend of yoga…i am ready to call it quits.
the last time i did it (yesterday) i found i was extremely frustrated and wanting to stop before it was over.
i pushed through it and thanked god it was over.
it’s hard to get motivated to do something again when you are surrounded in frustration over it.
first of all, the instructor annoys the living hell outta me.  this dvd reminded me of all the other work out dvd’s i gave away or gave up on because of the instructor.
perfect example would be hip hop abs.
my lord.
one attempt at that work out and i was done.  have never tried it again.  the instructor is so unbelievably annoying that i could not get a good work out in no matter how hard i tried.
Same goes with the yoga instructor.
i get the overwhelming urge to reach through my tv screen and punch her.
that’s how annoying i find her…and really who needs that??
the 2nd reason i think i may just give up on yoga…is the mat.
I have a wonderful mat at home…but i just don’t think it’s yoga appropriate…it’s more for sit ups etc.
So a couple of people recommended the yoga mat…from the dollar store.
i know, i know….you don’t even need to say it.
you get what you pay for.
even the lady who was cashing me out at the dollar store went on and on about how great these mats are.
i didn’t even get through half of the work out before the mat started ripping.
literally ripping.
so of course that added to my frustration level.
i was tempted to take my shredded mat back to the dollar store and give it to the lady who raved about it…
alas i did not.
maybe i need a different dvd.  i am too scared to go buy one…cause you never know if the instructor is going to drive you mental.
i think i just miss my turbo jam.  it’s perfect for me.  she doesn’t annoy me and it’s a good work out.
i think my back is ready to tackle that tonight.
sorry yoga…i must let you go.  it was a short and painful love afair.
maybe one day i shall love you again…maybe.

    Life is too short to do an exercise routine that annoys you (you are right that the instructor is an most part of an exercise tape – I have a picture of your arm reaching into your TV screen and you pulling her out by the neck and slamming her down on your yoga mat! 🙂 You go girl!!!
