Chugging along, week 7 done!!

I can’t believe that I am almost done with the second DVD! Now I have to admit, I really had to push myself this week. Is the workout hard? Not really. It is challenging though. This week my hamstrings really got put through the wringer. Warrior 3 poses don’t look great in my video clip but I assure you that as the week went by and I got more repetitions in, my form improved. Balance was my biggest struggle this week.

I love the bicycle move with the resistance band, and the dancer pose was a nice add in to the routine this week. My goddess pose is a little lackluster in the video which is why I recommend filming yourself or practicing in front of a mirror. It’s hard to improve if you can’t see what areas you need to work on.

My body really is starting to tone. Even though my weight is the same, I’m starting to swim in my clothes! I was already in a size 6 thanks to Keto (link to Keto blog in sidebar) but now I may be looking at a smaller size. 👀 I also have noticed my batwing span has decreased. 😆 If you are considering this program, I recommend it. Of course, always consult a doctor before you begin any diet or exercise program.

Inspiration & Quick Thought

I was looking up at our family photos today and was reflecting just how far I’ve come. I wanted to share this in hope that it will help someone. No matter where you are in your journey, remember that nothing is impossible. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. Keep pushing forward. Now for a quick thought about the challenge.

Toward the end of week 2 workout, there is a segment where you really ramp up the burn. Last week was the goddess pose. This week it is a warrior 2 pose that alternates from one side to the other in quick succession. Now, this is where I feel true yogis won’t like this program. When you are taught yoga, you are taught that your form is important. You seek to master your poses. In these “burn” segments of the workout, your form suffers because your goal is trying to get your heart rate up. I understand that this is Yoga “Burn” so I am following the program. I just thought it was worth mentioning because I know this may be a deal breaker for some folks who have practiced yoga for any period of time.

Week 1 Done!

I have finished it off. I now only have 11 weeks to go. Honestly, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it through the 3rd rep of my week 1 workout. I muscled through it and got it done. However I was truly beat afterwards.

The morning after is surprisingly pleasant. I was fully anticipating not being able to walk. My soreness is there, I can tell I’ve worked. But I am not to the point where I want to lie in bed all day.

The one move that really got me this week that I had never practiced before was the “Goddess pose.” This is the move that really worked me out. I don’t know if this is a traditional yoga pose but it really is what I felt most from week 1.
