It's time to get back to the yoga....

    I've let the yoga fall by the wayside lately. Don't get me wrong, if it was part of my regular workout I would never skip it. I was trying to incorporate some yoga in the morning before I got ready for work. It was like a 10 minute wake up yoga thing. I do like it, but I just can't get back in the habit of doing it. 

    I was doing the yoga really consistently before going to Nebraska in March and since I've been back from that trip I can't get back in the groove. I tell myself that I will get up and just do it. It's only 10 minutes. But that little devil on my shoulder keeps reminding me how much I hate yoga. I will find anything else to do other than yoga. I will even clean my bathroom and vacuum just to get out of it! 

    I did notice the benefits of the yoga while I was consistent. I lost a crap ton of inches one month while I was doing it every day. It was crazy how many inches I lost! I also did feel more energetic, and I hate to admit that. 

     I'm still fighting my stereotypes of people that do yoga and that's why I still can't into it. If you would like, here are some links to other blogs I've written about my dislike of yoga. 

How can I breath through my eyes?

Hopefully I can get my butt in gear and start doing this yoga business in the mornings again!


  1. Yoga REALLY makes you lose inches! I concur!

    What do you do in 10 minutes? I do some morning stretching/pilates for about 20 minutes in the morning to get the blood going !

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I didnt realize yoga helped lose inches.I just figured it helped with have to give it a try

  3. Ha ha ha, read the "How can I breath through my eyes".
    I have the same urge to go hippi yoga punching sometimes. As most middle age white men, my flexability is a joke. I would feel so stupid even trying yoga but I bet it would be awesome for that.

  4. I've been thinking about yoga but kind of forgot too! 10 minutes in the morning sounds good, any recommendations for a routine?
