If you know me at all, you know patience is not something that I possess. I wish I did! What little I have is very limited! 🙂
Yesterday I jumped into week 8 of DDP Yoga. Although due to things going on I have missed Friday workouts for the past 3 weeks. So I’ve only been getting in 2 of the three workouts.
This week I have 4 workouts to do. I’m going to be out of town Thursday and Friday after work. So rather than follow the schedule and skip a day or two, I’m tweaking it. I looked at the workouts and I’m going to basically work out Monday-Thursday. While I’m busy Thursday night, I have a short workout when I get home. Then I at least get my yoga in. I’m also hoping to get some walking in over the holiday weekend.
Last night, I also hit a personal milestone. I was able to hold a pose in a fairly advanced position and I loved it. Three years ago when I started this adventure of blogging my ups and downs of getting healthier, I wouldn’t have come close to where I am today. Weight wise, in three years I haven’t lost that much but I gained some muscle tone, I feel better, and I’m able to hold poses that I thought were impossible. I still have a goal to drop pounds and now that I’m getting back into a workout groove, I think that will start to come back in to play.
This is the pose that I was pretty close to holding, except I held my feet instead of pointing hands and feet but I’ll get there. I took a picture to check my form but I’m not sharing that on here! 😀
Eating wise, I’ve been having some tummy troubles this week. I’m not sure whats going on with that but I’m just taking things one step at a time. I’ve also started adding fresh fruit to some of my water bottles just to mix things up a bit and not have “plain” water. I’m currently enjoying a strawberry & lemon mixture.
So for my weekly weigh in, I gained a bit. Nearly a pound. However, while I’m working thru this tummy trouble, I’m not going to focus too much on it. I think part of my issue was eating heavy foods the past week. While some are more indulgent than others, its not always a healthy decision! 🙂
Have a fantastic week friends and a lovely holiday weekend!
