Reaching a healthy weight while practicing yoga
What do you get out of your yoga practice? and how often do you practice?
Does the wii fit yoga count? Gotta start somewhere eh :-)
Yes! I used to do that all the time. Then my kids and husband disconnected my wii fit and I miss it. I used to like a few of the games on it....Starting is great.
I've been lagging on my practice but then a couple of buddies reminded me and all of sudden I can't wait to get onto the mat this morning.
I recall reading that yoga won't make you lose weight but a continued practice will make you want to eat well and make better choices. I'm not sure I completely agree with this. I've had a few times where I know my heart rate went up and I felt like I really exerted myself during my practice not to mention the strength training using my own body weight but I get they mean when they say it makes you want to make better choices.
You end up feeling like you are caring for your body. I suppose that's why I keep this team open. I keep thinking that there will be someone who will stumble across a yoga practice and feel like they found this great thing and want to talk about it. Share some of their experiences they've had on the mat.
Yoga can be a really powerful tool. Well...enough of me talking. I'm going to get on the mat.
My husband is kind of stiff and has so many aches and pains from working a physical job for so many years. I told him that there are a few gentle poses that he can try that may give him a little relief and he always turns me down but today he said he'll try a few before dinner.
I'm excited! I think he's going to love it when he gives it a chance. :)
I'm going to get on the mat today...then do a few laps around the house. I've been concentrating on my dumbbell challenge and the treadmill. I've come to miss the mat so here goes. :)
I'm so proud of myself....I'm on day 24, I've been doing treadmill time and now I'm using yoga as stretching...
How are you all doing?
I haven't been posting my daily stuff but I'm now on day 17 for the dumbbell challenge...I had a few busy days and I'm doing my best to get my steps in...this are moving.
Hi, I'm Tara. I just joined. I have a 3 mth membership at a hot yoga place that I've been taking advantage if, but I really need to be more consistent about my diet. Hoping to find some support & accountability here!
Hi Tara...welcome. This group seems to be a little quiet...but I'm always checking in. :) Maybe we'll encourage the others.
7/15 Day #10
7/16 Day #11 20 mins on the treadmill

woooohoooo look at me go! I've been doing a little yoga to stretch in the evenings or after my day's challenge. Right now I have that nice little soreness going on. :)
