Yoga Kicked My Butt

13 Nov

I’ve sort of shifted a bit from crossfitting to more weight training recently. Husband has us on this 5X5 weightlifting plan that is supposed to be three days a week. Since If often only get to the gym 3 times a week these days, that often means I am only weight training. This was one of those weeks. I had done various squats, deadlifts, overhead presses, cleans, bench presses, pull-ups, push-ups, reverse sit ups, and plank before going to yoga with MIL on Thursday. Yoga is typically difficult for me as I’m not very flexible, and I get bored. This time it was extra bad. It seemed to be more leg intensive, and the day before had included squats and cleans, which meant my legs were toast. I sat down several times during yoga hour and seriously considered rolling up my mat and going to lift weights with husband. I did push through, and it was a good active recovery workout as I didn’t get sore later in the day like I typically do. However, I was reminded that I need to be better about stretching, and yoga once in a while really is good for me. How do you exercise? What are things you do because they’re good for you, but you don’t really enjoy?

    I love yoga and do it almost everyday. I have embraced the spiritual side as well as the physical side of yoga, and it has helped me to be more PATIENT with things that are not in my control 😉 I just dreamed I was eating a cupcake-I never dreamed about food before this happened. So, now I don’t get to eat fun things because they make me very sick. But, being healthy is more important.

    Yep, yoga kicked my butt this week too! I’ve been trying to get back into doing the Wii Fit yoga stuff, and I did it three days this week. It’s surprisingly tough. It didn’t feel hard while I did it, but ouch, my poor muscles feel it now. I feel like I’m 70, haha!

    It just proves that I’m waaaay out of shape. 🙂

    I’d like to say that I run, climb, and crossfit… but my last bit of exercise I did was mowing the lawn… boo.
