One-hour of body pump (weight lifting) and 45 minutes of cardio (2 miles and then elliptical).  Good workout with my baby girl!

Back to the gym today for endurance work.  When I'm on the treadmill or elliptical, I go way harder than when I'm road running. I know this because of how much more I sweat.  My Nike+ gives me my speed on the road but it's hard without that panel in front of me to make myself speed up.  I'm sore as heck from lifting yesterday so I'm just going to do an hour of elliptical and 5 min of planks broken up into 1 min a piece.  I have lost 20 lbs since April and would really like to lose another 30 altogether.  

I was doing the intermittent fasting and six workouts a week but now that i'm back in school, my time is so much more limited.  I have maintained the weight loss but haven't really been working out a lot.  I'm preparing my food for the next three days (slow cooker beans and veggies, salads, tuna/chicken salad, etc.) and getting back at it.  Five more pounds to the half way point.  I can do this!

Hey Femme! Big smile *waves*

Are you a beginner? If so, Try to start with something simple like a few rounds of Sun Salutations. There's plenty of examples on YT for beginners. Sun Salutations give your entire body a good stretch from head to toe, increases range of motion in the spine, muscles, & joints, and gets you used to using your breath with movement.

Along with that, there are some balancing poses you could start with such as Tree Pose, Warrior III, But to build the strength needed in the arms and shoulders for things like handstands for example: Downward Facing Dog, Dolphin Pose, Chatarunga Dandasana, (yogi push-ups).



And yes, by all means, for safety...please start on a wall. It takes a lot of strength in both the abdomen and spine to freely balance in those poses. HTH! Smile
