Day 248 & 249: one day I will do yoga and I won’t be in pyjamas
One day, but not either of these two days.
For this post I have a brand new blog friend along for the ride… I am shamelessly stealing some of her awesome doodles today, please click on them because they will take you lovely posts on her blog: perpetualplothole go and read it…but please come back here too 🙂
As Monday morning approached…ok…by that I mean Sunday evening… It became apparent that I was either not better, or ill again in quick succession. GRRRRR!!!
By became apparent, I mean that I felt sick, my tummy hurt, my temperature was wrong and my skin hurt…I didn’t even know skin could hurt!Due to this new and unpleasant development I stayed at home on Monday and decided not to over do it in the evening by going to body pump. ( 😦 I miss body pump!)
Instead of lifting stuff up and putting it down again I decided to do some Yoga, from a pretty good app that I found which had beginners routines and poses. there were 4 beginners workouts which were 15 mins each.
Beginner Seated Poses
Beginner Lying Poses
Beginner Standing poses
I did the Routine and the Lying poses on monday and the Seated and Standing Poses on Tuesday.
In my pyjamas.
The main problem I had with this was the tendency for my pyjama top to flop around and fall over my head. this is moderately distracting while trying not to fall over and hold a correct downward dog!
I have no way of knowing how ridiculous I looked while I was doing this…but let me tell you that my pyjamas are somewhat on the big side… and got in the way really quite a lot!
However, it definitely counted as a good workout in my diminished state, and I actually felt the stretchy bendyness of it being beneficial.
Or rather, I felt that is could be beneficial if I did it more than twice!
I am now investigating yoga classes to attend, which I have a sneaky suspicion I will have to wear real clothes to and not red tartan pyjamas that used to fit me 2 stone ago!
any way…in a more restful way than normal!
Day 248 & 249 complete 🙂
