My new thing

I've been very consistent with my yoga classes on base. The teacher is great (albeit, a little too chatty and high-energy for yoga). She teaches more of a power yoga, and makes it well-known to all of us that she's not into New Age-y stuff, and tells us if that's what we're looking for, then to go somewhere else. It meets twice a week after I get out of work.

Well as of last night, I've added more on to my exercise regimen. I found an article in Fitness magazine that talked about a great 45-minute treadmill workout. I don't have the best endurance, so I didn't know if I could make it that long on a treadmill. The most I've done before is 30-35.

Well, I tried it last night at the base gym, and let me tell totally kicked my butt! I'm proud of myself because I did, indeed, make it the full 45 minutes. It flew by, because I was constantly checking the magazine to see what to do next, listening to my iPod, and watching Seinfeld. The article gave a minute-by-minute breakdown of changing up the workout. Every couple minutes you either change the speed, the incline, or both. It was great! So I'm now going to try to do this 3 times a week, and my yoga twice a week. Five days of working out! I don't know if I can handle it, and Grant thinks it might be too much, but I'm going to try. If I get burnt out, I'll do the treadmill thing twice a week.

In the meantime, I'm totally sore, and I have yoga tonight. I don't know about this new-found desire for fitness...It's very time-consuming and it really takes away from my laziness. And I love my laziness!

    That's how I was with Jazzercise. After not exercising at all. I started doing it 4-5 times a week. I loved feeling all active. I really want to get into it again, but it's a lot harder now that I have to worry about getting childcare for Joey.
