About a week and a half ago, I decided that I wanted to do the Sunrise series (morning series) yoga on Gaia.com all the way through. Each video is about half an hour so I thought that this would be a good way to get some yoga in while still having energy for other things. But, what I found is that a lot of the videos are repetitive, and that I don’t get enough of a workout in the half hour videos, because much of the time after 15 or 20 minutes they start doing restorative poses, even in the Vinyasa videos.
I still want to get through this whole series but want to change things up a bit. So, I’m going to do longer practices Monday, Wednesday, Friday and still do the series on Tuesday/Thursday.
I’m also wondering if part of the reason why I’m not losing weight is because I’m doing the same kind of exercise every day versus varying my exercises. Because of this, I might tweek my workout plan even more in the future.
I also emailed my doctor and am going to get my hormones and cortisol levels checked. I think that this is important because it could be the reason why I can’t seem to lose weight. It would make sense that with hyperthyroid and Lyme that my hormones could be off.
I am feeling much better today, too, than yesterday. Yesterday I felt sick and tired all day because of the loud fireworks that kept me from sleeping the night before (and likely the smoke in the air). Today, after getting a good night’s sleep, I’m feeling much better.
For my yoga practice today, I’m going to do a 45 minute Vinyasa gratitude/detox flow. I really like detox flows because they tend to help me to feel better overall. As a Lyme patient, it’s really important that I detox in any way that I can. This flow is my favorite so far too that I’ve found on Gaia. It’s taught by Steph Schwartz and it always helps me to feel good.
