anyways, i had the chance to actually do my yoga work out last night.
the dvd i bought ages ago has 3 different exercises
1) the total body fat burner work out – 20 min
2) the ab work out – 10 min
3) the leg work out – 10 min
the only one i had ever done on the dvd was the ab work out…cause lets face it…i’m over 30 and i want a sexy belly!!
so i decided i would do the 20 minute full on body fat burner. It was only 20 minutes, like please…i doubted i would even feel the work out
I am able to do 45 minutes of cardio, a 20 min hard core ab work out and can walk 5 miles
this 20 min yoga would be a walk in the park!!!
i should never assume…
yoga totally kicked my ass.
after the 20 minutes, my body had the same reaction as doing a 45 minute cardio work out
i was sweaty, out of breath and my muscles felt like jello.
yoga looks so graceful. so “easy”
it is graceful, but i assure you it’s not easy.
do you know how hard it is to do some of the moves and hold the positions?
i loved it!!!!
my body feels it today. how many muscles do i have???
every new work out i attempt brings aches to muscles i never knew existed.
now i need to learn how to incorporate yoga into my work out routine.
i can’t and won’t work out 7 days a week…so some strategic planning needs to happen.
i’d write more, but the baby is awake 🙂
i really hate not being able to work out.
now there is a sentence i never imagined saying….ever
but it’s the truth.
she suggested i pull out my yoga DVD and do that until my back was feeling stronger.
all the stretches could only be good for my back yes?
So i was excited to get home and get some physical activity in.
It’s been about a year since i tried yoga.
the last time i did it….there was one move (forgive me but i have no idea what it’s called…maybe my friend j can tell me!)
anyways…this move requires you to balance your knees on your elbows.
the first couple of times i was able to do it. the last time i ever attempted that specific move… i literally fell on my face. hence why that was the last time.
funny now…not so much then!
So out came the DVD…and i was ready.
what i did not factor in to the whole equation, was this little bundle of joy that has taken over my home…and my heart.
apparently she has a panache for yoga. she got down on the mat with me…she climbed on my back when i was on my belly
she got between my legs…
i think she even tried to bite my butt.
Yoga lasted 10 minutes last night.
I shall have to figure something out. I can’t give up working out cause she thinks it’s play time, but i also don’t want to accidentally kick her in the head when i am kicking turbo jams ass.
So in the mean time i either work out while she’s sleeping…or i crate her. i really don’t want to crate her though.
oh the dilemma ehh?
Yoga was a failure last night….but today is a whole new day.
