yoga for losers and sandwich happiness

So I ordered the new Biggest Loser Yoga for Weight Loss DVD and it arrived yesterday. I thought it would be nice and relaxing to do when I got home from work to wind down. Let me tell you, this workout kicked my ass!

First of all, Bob is awesome and normal and not all cheesy like some of the DVD's I've had in the past. The DVD is set up for easy progress. You do a 35 minute workout for the first week or 2 and then add to it the following weeks.

I managed to get through the whole thing except for the planks and some of the second sets of the poses. I was sweating head to toe and every single muscle is singing today although I'm not as sore as I thought I would be. It says you should do it 5-6 times a week for best results which is a lot of time, especially if you plan on adding more cardio and strength training. I plan on sticking to it for a while since it made my body feel great.

The reason I love yoga so much is I'm flexible by nature (except for my gut being in the way right now) and I feel like I see progress very quickly which is very motivating to me. I totally recommend this DVD. I think it was $20 with shipping and came in a few days.

On a sandwich note, if you can find these you have got to try them. They are called Arnold Sandwich Thins and they are only 100 calories, 1 gram of fat and 4 grams of fiber. They are whole wheat and have no high fructose corn syrup. It's basically a really thin, whole grain bun. I have one for lunch today that I grilled on the George Foreman with some ham and cheese and spinach for a yummy low-cal, high fiber panini. I really love a good sandwich and this will be so nice for a change.

The motivation switch has been flipped again and I feel really good. I'm going to my first ever Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow and I'm a little nervous but I always am my first time doing things. I signed up for a monthly pass that comes with the e-tools so I'll be tracking my food there from now on. I'm ready to give it a shot.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
