Oh My Yoga and Good Gracious Pilates

Somebody bring in the body bag and a few pounds of russell stover's.....QUICK!

I had this fantastic idea that I would start eating better, avoiding all my usual junk food and that I would start trying to do some excercise videos. It's easier than loading the kids and go to the gym right??

My first attempts at this were completely demolished when someone brought over an ENTIRE cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory (which by the way, they make cheesecake....and it's good) and oh please....contain myself? Then I had also made a butter pecan cake with cream cheese frosting (as I had no idea they were bringing the aforementioned cheesecake) and so my fridge has had to play host to an overload of scrumptious goodies...sent from the firey pits of hades. I pawned as much as I possibly could off on my skinny little buddy and hoped that would help. After days of trying to avoid the temptations I was quite ready to throw in the towel and eat myself stupid.

Next enter the excercise. I went to the Goodwill, really where else would you buy work out videos? If you think about it, I am paying for what obviously wasn't working for someone else.
So, I purchased three fabulous tapes (the only ones that weren't jazz-or-cise with cindy including pink headbands and leg warmers). One was a pilates video that I actually had before, loaned it out and never did see again, one was a yoga and the other is a toning one.

Yesterday I did pilates. Oh mylanta. My abs are ticked off. They have been yelling at me all day. "Jenny, what in the name of all that is reasonable were you thinking" they say to me. Honestly my abs, I just don't know. Let's not even go into what my thighs and buns are saying...they are not nearly so polite.

Today I decided to go with yoga, it's relaxing and not so tough right? I got through about 15 mintues of the 47 minute video, considered throwing myself off of a tall building and into a man eating lion hole, just because it would be less painful than trying to continue with yoga.

I need Brusters.

Oh my love! You are funny! I do go to a gym everyday because those exercise videos get me everytime... I would say the yummy things calling your name from the fridge would be a nice treat when you finish a video.

Skinny little buddy???? You are funny. Your muscles should start to forgive you in a couple days. Just try to modify the moves some so it doesn't put some much strain on your muscles and then you'll work your way up. We need to take a class at the gym. I'll look at the schedule.

LOL you are so funny! I do a cardo work out which at first whipped my butt! Now it is fine. I started with 25 mins then worked up to the 40 mins. I decided though to work on my abs and that I wish I never did. UGH painful!
