MegaYoga dvd November 15, 2011

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I pre-ordered a yoga dvd from Amazon. According to the UPS, my package should be here tomorrow. I cannot wait! I went to a store and bought a yoga mat for $5 in preparation for tomorrow. Being as big as I am it is hard to move, bend, and stretch a certain way. This dvd was made for plus-size people. There is another one that I want to get but I'm having a hard time finding it at a price I can afford. It's by the same lady, Megan Garcia. She's a plus-size model and Just My Size clothing developed a yoga dvd with her. It's called Just My Size Yoga. It got rave reviews and now I'm fixated on getting a copy. I'll keep searching until I find it.

I had a small loss at WW this week, .2 lbs. It's a loss, so I'll take it and be happy about it. I have been tracking my food and limiting eating out. Lucky for me that when we ate out it was at Subway and I knew what I could have without ruining all my hard work. We had dinner at my best friend's house and she was great at understanding that I was watching what I was eating. She made a delicious chocolate chip pie and I had a slice about as big as my thumb. It was smaller than everyone else's but just as good!

At WW we discussed what our eating plan was going to be on Thanksgiving. I'm not having people over this year because I have to be at work at midnight. I'm a cashier at a department store and this year we are open 24 hours on Black Friday. I don't have to make as much food as in the past. And since my daughter is vegetarian, I will probably make more vegetable dishes. I have a recipe to make Pumpkin Fluff instead of pumpkin pie. I have a goal to reach on the 29th of this month and I am going to try my hardest to reach it. I aim to lose 5 more lbs by then. It'll be hard but I'm going to give it my best shot.

    That is so wonderful! I'm with you if its a loss then I too will take it. I like having an option do exercises at high intensity & low intervals so when I find a dvd that has them both, I'm all in.

    God bless & pumpkin fluff sounds sweet.

    You are so right! The dvd I'm getting tomorrow is titled MegaYoga and the instructor is a plus-size model for Lane Bryant, etc. She has an older dvd that I also want, Just My Size Yoga. They have it at Amazon for an outrageous price for used. I will wait until I find it for less. I liked what you said about stretching and I noticed that my daughter's posture improved once she started doing yoga. I find it difficult to get on the floor and I'm envious of you! I can't even remember the last time I was able to get on the floor willingly. So I figured that you were right. Stretching will lead to other things.

    As for Thanksgiving, I plan on having a great day! I have some modified recipes that I used at Thanksgiving in 1999 and I lost that week. I want a repeat. There was a saying in the weekly handout at WW today. It said "if you fail to plan, you plan to fail". So true!

    Have a great week! =D

    PS There was also an article in the handout about yoga and stretching. I wanted to scan it and put it here but I didn't want any trouble for posting something that isn't mine to post.

    I had no idea there was a Yoga DVD for plus size peeps!!! I need to check that out! I'm glad you're so excited! I always get the most excited about stretching and exercising. What I want most is a GOOD mat to support my back. i have one from modell's but it's just not enough support for me at this weight. you will DEFINITELY lose that 5 lbs! How many Thanksgivings have you lived through? You know what they're about, and you have a plan, and it is JUST ANOTHER DAY. have a slice of this or that if you want so you don't feel deprived, and then keep it moving cause it's JUST FOOD and you have more important things to worry about, like the rest of your healthy life and all the healthy Thanksgivings to come! Next year at this time we will be looking back out our photos shaking our heads, GRATEFUL that we worked so hard a year to make BIG changes in our lives!
