I need yoga
After my lunchtime workout, I was reminiscing on how much I miss yoga. I’ve used the Yoga downloads, videos and improvised on my own for a while now. But something about being in a class, away from everything (like distractions), with an instructor there to literally adjust you if you need help; there’s just nothing quite like it.
So, my goal for the next month or so is to do some research and find a yoga studio! I’ve taken classes here or there around the city but I would like to find a place that I could go to repeatedly. We have classes here at work, which I like, but I have to wait and see what their schedule is going to be for the summer.
I already know the gym is going to start opening later, so that is going to nix my early morning gym workouts. The cool thing is that its Spring and eventually Summer and I’m thinking about trying to work out some at home morning workouts, including outdoors! 🙂
Anyway, just got back from my lunchtime workout…I did 30 minutes walking on the treadmill, conquering 2 miles at various inclines along the way. I do very well at moderate inclines like 5.0-7.0% but when we start getting closer to the double digits, I have to use the handrails! Since I used the inclines, I think I probably burned close to 200 calories in this workout.
I was so excited to do planks today! That sounds crazy, especially coming from me because I used to hate them. I was breathing heavy and shaking the whole time, but I managed to get through 2 sets of 1-minute regular planks and 30 second side planks (on each side). My heart was thumping in my chest when I got done so I know that by itself is a good workout. I’m interested to see how sore my abs and arms are tomorrow, if its anything like the last time 😉
Nope, that’s not me, haha…but I did that!
Lunch was awesome! Now that I have tried a hummus wrap, I can see it becoming a regular part of my lunch rotation. I don’t know what I was so afraid of…I guess I thought it wouldn’t fill me up or hold me over very well, but I was way wrong, especially paired with the spinach. I think I would try it as a sandwich too sometime. There are just so many varieties and flavors of hummus that possibilities could be endless!
I have a refreshing Fage yogurt to look forward to this afternoon and then its off to class, the last one! Next semester it will be Tuesday nights, so I’m hoping that will be easier than Monday, right?!
Hope you are enjoying your day. It’s been raining here but the Sun managed to pop out for a few minutes 🙂
