So, I just tried yoga for the very first time, and I have to admit that I’ve been so wrong about it my entire life. It’s actually insanely difficult to perfect the moves and properly align your body. It actually left me quite out of breath if I’m entirely honest. Admittedly I started off with some really advanced moves; I wanted to get an idea of just how hard things could get so that I knew what to work towards. I think, all in all, I did really well, and I’m keen on finding a place for it in my life. My fiance suggested alternating days, (strength and cardio on one day, followed by yoga on the next) and I think that’s a great place to start. Combining this with breast feeding and a healthy diet, I should drop my baby weight in no time!
I’ve just finished the biggest workout, and despite the fact that my entire body is trembling, I feel incredible. I think there’s something kind of arousing about how I feel after I’ve pushed myself this hard. I don’t know what it is or why it happens but I can’t be alone in this. Perhaps it’s something to do with the rush of endorphins after exercising? Whatever the reason, I love it, and I know my body is thanking me for the effort I put in today.
This morning I had an early appointment with the dentist, so I didn’t manage my usual walk in the park. I did, however, walk home from the dentist (CBD - Richmond) and sneak in three laps before picking up my eldest from school. If both children are content with entertaining themselves then I’ll workout once we’re home, or I’ll try and get out again later this evening for a few power laps!
