Gym Progress 9/19/19; Yoga 9/17

in palnet •  24 days ago 

Down to 216 lbs...lowest I've been in over a year. I think the keto is really starting to work, and the intermittent fasting isn't hurting.

Today's note of gym going interest...

If you are a dude, DO NOT WEAR YOGA PANTS! Gross, dude!

Notes on today

  • I'm not impressed with my output today. This may be the downside of fasting
  • Senza and Jefit have really helped me in tracking health improvement, see Additional Gym Comments - New Apps for more info on these apps.

9/17 Yoga

Sadly, I was right, my instructor was not hitting on me; just a friendly woman that enjoys teaching yoga and is happy to have new people stick it out.

I missed a week of this (this was third time) and it showed in class. Not that I mind rolling around like a fat walrus in front of everybody else LOL.

Even so, I do feel like I am improving my flexibility and balance. I was able to do the ...wait...gonna look this up...tree pose for more than ten seconds at a time, and some of the other movements were easier to get into last time.

I don't know which kind of yoga we are doing (hell, didn't know there were different kinds); I'll ask next class.

And it's time to start looking up martial arts classes near by...I'm ready to start incorporating these into my routine.

It has been suggested that I start with boxing for the footwork , what do y'all think?
