I see it everyday, overweight people who are sitting down and not walking or exercising. I had an old boyfriend who hated fat people. Hate is such a powerful word and just because someone is overweight does not give another person a right to judge another human being. I don’t hate fat people. I have many friends who are overweight and I see them struggle with their weight on a day to day basis. My friends do not want to be fat, they just cannot get their weight off. I cannot say that they exercise because they don’t. But, they do eat healthy and wisely.
I started the Kettle Worx work out on September 25th. Ryan and his team makes it look so easy. But, after that 20 minute sample workout in his Introduction CD, I was feeling the pain in my body. The only exercise I have been doing in the last six months was a mile of walking and I thought I was doing a great job with that!
I have completed Week 1 of the Kettle Work workout: Resistance and Core. I don’t have the cardio DVD yet and hoping it will be in the mail this week. I completed Resistance Week 2 today. My body must be getting used to the workout because I did not feel any aches or pains today. And I was feeling more energized than exhausted.
I am combining the Kettle Work workout with yoga. Yoga is not as easy as it looks. I must be so out of shape that I was perspiring in yoga class. I have taken multiple yoga classes and I normally do not perspire as much as I did that last three yoga classes. The first yoga class that I took at the Yoga Room in Astoria was Hot Yoga and now I know it is not my thing. I was sweating as soon as I walked into class. After thirty minutes of hot yoga, I almost passed out because of the intense heat. It was probably 100 degrees in the room.
I have somehow lost my flexibility because I lost my ability to touch my toes without bending my knees. And I remember when I used to do flips and somersaults when Iwas younger. I can still become flexible with my yoga practice but I know it will take awhile so I need to be patient with the results.
