Working it Out
I have had my struggles, lost my motivation, eaten too much and had more fun than my daily caloric allowance has preferred, but I have still been able to consistently keep these pounds off. No matter how badly I wanted to go a week without the gym, I never once did it; and I continued to forge on with my calorie counting. I am definitely proud of myself for all of these things!
For some reason, I have the urge to get into yoga again. I think that the relaxation, stretching and peace that it can bring will be beneficial for me, and since I would otherwise just be sitting on the couch, why not? It is offered at the Y by my house, so after my Wednesday workouts I will drive over there and hit the 7:15 class, finish at 8 and be home around 8:10 for dinner and to wrap up the day. If only there were more hours in the day!
While yoga really doesn't burn the calories, I hope that it will help a bit with my leg issues. I have had shin splints and just constant leg pains when I run that could possibly be from not stretching enough? I am also in desperate need of new shoes, as even my feet are killing me when I run. It has been almost a year since my last pair, so I am definitely over due and thinking about splurging on some insoles for my next pair.
The cold weather is when most people start to gain weight, I want to successfully avoid this trap!
