02/25/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

I have been doing this ‘experiment’ with this workout tape set.  I wanted to see, if I committed to all the recommended exercise tapes, and following the recommended diet plan (which is not something crazy and frankly, more calories than I was used to eating), if I would see results like they claimed would happen.  I am now in the final leg- the third month. 

When I first started and I did the yoga tape, which is 90 minutes, I couldn’t do some of the moves, and frankly, doing the tape for 90 minutes made me anxious and I couldn’t finish. I am a type ‘A’ personality, and I just wasn’t sweating enough for this to be really hard work!  Ask people who do yoga regularly…this is just not true.

This morning I got up super early, and did the yoga tape.  I was still getting antsy around 60 minutes, but I finished it and felt it was my best effort to date!  I went lower into the lunges than I previously had.   I held poses that I fell over in before, for longer.  And I had a real sense of satisfaction for completing something that was a huge challenge for me.

If you try a certain type of class and it doesn’t work for you initially, don’t be intimidated into not trying it again.  As you ability and fitness level evolve, you may understand how that class you didn’t like before is important to your well-rounded fitness plan.
