Yoga, it's not for the weak kneed

Well - I started up again! Yes - Yoga. I debated between the the "PM and Stress Relief" Video and the "For Weight Loss." Because, of course, I need the one for weight loss, but I also, most definitely need the one for Stress Relief (as the kids are screaming now while playing a game...YIKES!). I decided on the "For Weight Loss." For some reason it seems more pressing. At least when I put on jeans.

As soon as I got the mat out, both my kids came up (my 2 year old son was hysterical watching the beginning where they demo the poses and he did the "Proud Warrior" pose and it was hysterical!!) and I had to "share" the mat with both of them when I first started, but I tried really hard to concentrate throughout this video. I was working my arse off, and then the legs started shaking so bad!! UGH!! I do attribute much of that to being out of shape, but hells bells! I definitely wasn't ready for these poses. Not that "Proud Warrior" is difficult, but I think it was how long they hold the position.
I'm going to keep plugging away - but I think I'll do a couple passes of the "PM and Stress Relief" one first then I'll work my way up to the whole "For weight loss."

But good news - At the new job I'm up on the 3rd floor. The first two days I took the elevator. But the last two days I've been climbing the stairs - 37 steps. Today I walked up them 3 times! Of course I could make heavy breathing phone calls by the time I reach the top! I figure the stairs will be some of my pre-yoga prep. :-)

I'm loving the new job! I'm excited about moving forward in it as well. My new boss is awesome, I've known him for a while and he's just the best! Yes, I'm off to a happy happy!!

I hope you all had a fabulous New Year. I did. Even though I got a sinus infection (again) on Christmas Eve and it's lasted through this week. So on New Years I took some "put me out" drugs and woke up before Midnight. At Midnight I called down to my husband who has become addicted to Bejeweled or whatever it's called on MSN Games. I kept saying, Happy New Year with no response from him. Finally at 12:19am he came up and said, "What did you say? Nice. We're so romantic. :-)

You are back in YOGA!? FANTASTIC! If not for the weightloss or sanity ... at least for the ability to use your body.

And the new job with the new outlook on life in this new year of 2007 ... all I can say is:'change is good'.

Oh, and the upside with the hubby being addicted to Internet Games is that you can slip him a soda drink with viagra mixed in. He'll certainly loose interest in the game ... hopefully.

Yoga is great! It seems to quiet down the brain a little if you have a problem with that. I sure do.

Glad you like your new job! A good boss is a joy!!!

Ahhh, men and their games. Sometimes you just gotta pull out all stops...(and plugs) OOPS!

Sounds like you are off to a wonderful start in 2007! A new job, new outlook...and back to yoga! Good for you.

I tried yoga once and got really sick, light headed, dizzy and just sick so I have not gone back...but I hear it is really good for maybe one day. We will see. I wish you the very best in the upcoming year. Take care.
