Getting to the Core of it All

As I have stated before, I do like to exercise. I don't consider myself to be too much of a gym rat, but if I don't get up and get out there and do something I have like no energy and I feel kind of down. Typically I like a vigorous, hopefully short, exercise routines. It is difficult for me to think about slowing down and doing strength and flexibility training, but I am finding that I must try and do this, too many aches and pains otherwise. With that in mind, I went to my first yoga class since the pregnancy yoga class that I took when expecting my first child almost eleven years ago. I feel great. This class advertised increased energy and I have to say that even though it is late in the afternoon, I haven't gotten the afternoon foggy head that sometimes overcomes me. My goal is to learn some of the stretches and routines and do them at home on my yoga mat whilst attending class once a week. Attending class and learning yoga wasn't a resolution, but I think that I am going to make it one so as to increase my chances of sticking with it.

Good for you!
I'm at the gym (step classes etc.) 2-3 days a week now, or, trying to, and when I manage to stick with this routine, I'm a better person, better mom, better wife. It's really working on my moods...
I would love to do yoga, but I haven't found a class that suits my schedule here.
