Oh how I hate thee YOGA!!

I am trying to love Yoga, I really am. I struggled with accepting Yoga during P90x but I thought that with the shorter version of Yoga in X2 that I would be able to learn to love it... so far it is not the case! I hate spending a whole hour of my time to burn a mere 179 calories... cleaning the house would have burned more!!! I want to do it... I know Tony says that I should but Gosh Darn IT, do I have too... really?!!??

Anyway, enough whining... I am going to try to keep with it throughout the program but so far I just don't like Yoga. I guess it is kind of like learning to run... I wanted to feel that "runner's high" but at first I just felt like puking or turning around and going home. I persevered with running and I am going to try and do the same with Yoga so that I can find the flexibility and balance benefits from it. But I still don't like it!! At least it is only once a week.

So my friend Laura, who is doing P90X2 right now too, (head over to her blog here and check her out... she is AMAZING!) is doing a weekly Yoga pose entry on her blog so I thought that we could do the same here. I would post a weekly pic on my blog of my MOM (who is 54 BTW) and I doing a favorite pose of the week. I will post them on Fridays... starting today!! YIKES Do not judge me for having gained so much weight... I am working at taking it off ;)

Make it a great day folks... one more day to go and I have been through all of the workouts at least once. I can't wait for the 16th and I am going to try to do the workouts in a hotel room next week -.- that should be fun!

OK, and before I share the pics I want to add a disclosure statement (or three)...

1- I am the photographer in the family and I know what angles to take pics at... not my Mom (Mom took my pic and I took hers)
2- At the age of 54 my Mom COULD be on the cover of downward dog magazine ;) She is hot!!
3- I am sporting some 4:45am hair... looks terrible but I don't care at that hour... sorry!!

Once again... have a great day!

Awww... Thanks for the shout out girl!!! I hope you do stick with it though... I know what you mean about low calorie burn, but it will tone you up just like the other workouts!!!

You girls look great though... Can't wait to see your pics every Friday now too!!! :)
