So, rather than cause further injury and completely sideline myself, I opted to take it easy. I still managed to get out there for a total of 8 miles and lose an inch and a half total.
I did notice this week that even with those set backs and challenges, I feel that I have more confidence and I stand a little taller. I feel good about myself for the first time since probably my wedding. That feeling will be what keeps me going.
On Saturday, a friend invited me over to for yoga. I've never done yoga, but she practices it all the time. We've talked about it for months and I finally decided to try it. And I really enjoyed it. I never realized how tight my muscles really were until I tried yoga. I wasn't sure if it would be something I would enjoy, but I did.
This has led me to decide to add yoga, as well as, Pilates to my workouts. I tried Pilates many years ago and at that time, I didn't really like it. Mostly because I was new to it and it felt awkward to me. So, I am going to bust out the DVDs again and give it another go.
I'm really excited about adding these 2 elements into my workouts.
Have you ever practiced yoga or Pilates? Do you enjoy it, do you have suggestions or advice?
