Day 13: - Namaste Yoga

I don’t have very much to say today. Other than I feel I haven’t been working out nearly as hard as I could or should. I think at home there is a little too much freedom to slack off. Some people probably still push themselves despite not having a room full of people and an instructor pushing them. I’m not that person. I need to find a way to really push myself. I’m not burning enough calories and I’m not getting any endorphins. But, on the bright side, I am probably getting enough to get health benefits. That’s something.

I'm in a funk and it's dissapointing. I didn't expect to be here at day 13 of this journey. I expected it to happen at about day 90 or so. Urgh.

My Workout: Namaste Yoga, FitTV

What I liked:
1. Definitely peaceful. I could see doing this at night to wind down. I liked the breathing in and out. I forget to do that. 
2. It feels great to stretch in the morning!
3. Simple, effective moves

What I didn’t like:
1. I don’t do yoga often (ever) so I don’t know the poses. The instructor didn’t go into directions on how to get into positions. I figured them out easily by looking at the tv screen, but that meant I had to crane my neck funny to see it. Not really a big deal. I could see how it would only take a few times doing it to have the moves down without looking.

  1. Hang in there, girl! I love reading your reviews. I am a work out at home chick now. It is hard to get motivated and in a routine. But keep at it. :) Nancy
