I’m on my way people! 5 days ago since I decided to get moving and work off some of my honey-moon phase weight. I have done 5 workouts already….that’s everyday! That’s a new record for me, usually after 2 days I need a day off. Anyways, yesterday I started to get that anti-gym itch so I decided to do some weight loss yoga and go on a long walk with the dogs.
No, not an insane calorie burning workout like the 500 Calorie Burning Treadmill Run, but it was beneficial all the same. Plus my whole body was still in pain from the last couple days so it was probably a good time for some yoga 🙂
I used to be a yoga hater and if you are too, I understand. I thought “How is stretching and laying on the floor gonna help me tone up and lose weight!?”. Then against my better judgment I took a “hot yoga” class. HOLY S&$%! It was serious full body sweating, can’t breathe, break you to your knees kind of work out.
So when my sister-in-law recommended a Weight Loss Yoga DVD by Biggest Loser I decided to give it a try. I’m definately a program kinda girl, so having the moves all laid out for me was really beneficial….not to mention this DVD kicks my ass everytime. Perfect for you stay-at-home mammas, in fact my “kids” even tried to join in 🙂
Anyways, here’s 5 yoga moves to tighten up your muscles right in your living room! All’s you need is a mat and a little motivation 🙂 These are from Prevention.com.
