yoga week

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Every third week of exercise I'm putting an emphasis on yoga. I'm happy for that because my left leg is hurting and stiff from the beginner running training. I'm convinced on an intuitive level that "downward facing dog' is going" is going to firm up my arms.
And while I make this happen, a shift is going on. My weight has been hovering in the same place, but now I'm more focused on the fitness progress over the next 5 months. The progress on the scale will follow. What I want from the progressive fitness plan is the thing that is getting me up in the morning to exercise. The scale isn't the motivator now. I think I kinda like this shift.

    Good for you on your shift of focus to health over the scale. That was such a struggle for me but I am much happier now that the numbers are no longer my drive.

    I need to investigate some yoga tapes. I know I would benefit greatly from the strething because as I age I am just less limber.

    I LOVE yoga! Found it by accident, but I'll never not be a yogaista now ;)

    It's so good to read your blog. My chiropractor told me I should start yoga (they have a class once a week at his location). He told me roughly what you are saying - start getting fit, then you'll want to exercise more and eventually you'll see a change. I'm looking for yoga DVDs right now as I'm not big into classes - I like working out by myself.

    Good luck to you!
