Well, not good ones. They’re kind of half-assed. But I think they still count. Not easy (maybe not even possible) to do a lunge correctly when you’re carrying around almost three hundred pounds and have like, no muscles! XD
I’m not writing a long post, because Memorial Day and barbeque. As a side note, do you think steak sauce (like A-1) is better for you than ketchup and mayo? I hope it is, because that’s what I put on my hamburger.
Anyway, yesterday I did some more yoga. Both videos I found on YouTube. One was basically for relaxing and stretching, so I did it first. It was a little bit of a workout on its own because…I guess because I don’t move much. >_>;
The other was supposed to be yoga for weight loss. And any skepticism I had towards yoga for weight loss vanished in about one minute. It was hard! I was so jealous of the woman doing the video, with her happy bouncing and spot-on lunging. Meanwhile, I’m trying to copy her, which is hard as-is but harder because I have no balance, which I mentioned before. So I’m sort-of lunging, not like she is, but I was doing my best, and I’m also all wobbly and my cat, Sweet Pea, is on her perch watching me like I’ve gone insane.
This is Sweet Pea, in case you were wondering. You probably weren’t, but just in case.
Anyway, so long story short, I did the first video which was about 20 minutes, and I made it about 4 minutes into the other video before I stopped, crawled upstairs (not literally, but that probably would have been easier) and drank like a gallon of water. It was a bitch.
I did it again today, and this time I made it a whopping four-and-a-half minutes into the second video. It was still a bitch.
Every part of my body from the neck down, with the exception of my hands and feet, is a big ache. But I’m SO happy that it is! Because it means I’ve worked my muscles harder than I have in a longer time than I can really remember. And the videos, though the second one was really hard for me, were a lot of fun!
So I guess this is going to be my new habit. I think I’m gonna become a yoga girl. 🙂 And that’s much better than staying a couch potato. 😉
Happy Memorial Day, by the by. As an Air Force Brat (My father was not in the air force when I was a child, so I don’t count according to the other Brats, but my dad’s former drill sergeant said I still count because my dad still had a very military mind-set. Anyway…) and with my favorite uncle a Marine and a Vietnam vet, I humbly ask you to please respect our soldiers and the sacrifices they make in the name of freedom, even if you don’t agree with the wars they fight. Don’t forget that today is not just Obligatory BBQ Day; Its for THEM, our men and women in uniform.
