My Weight Loss Progress

Double Disappointment!

I went to the gym for my weigh-in and I've gained back four pounds! After a week of exercise!
The second disappointment was that I didn't make it all the way through yoga class. I was going strong and then, whoosh, all my energy ran away. Kaput! gone! I didn't even try to force myself to finish; I just rested for several minutes. I lay there prone on the mat until I figured I could at least wiggle my toes and then gradually come back to life. Such is my life right now, but maybe next time will be better.

  1. I liked your description of being prone on the matt until you could wiggle your toes! :) Don't feel bad about not making it through the yoga. I know it's supposed to be "energizing" but it really does sap a person's strength. Last semester I took a yoga class on campus. The first day was not too bad because we had a short workout (introductions, etc took up a chunk of class time), then the next time we met and had a full workout, I was so wiped out be the end of class that I had to catch TRAX and go home to crawl into bed for several hours. For the remainder of the semester, I drove to campus and rested in the car before AND after my yoga class--it was the only way I could make it through the day! I find 10-15 minutes of yoga refreshing. Any longer is exhausting.
