I'm hoping my yoga background will help with balance, strength, coordination etc. I also took kickboxing classes in the past and karate when I was a kid. So hopefully, all will go well and maybe someday I can kick ass like Avivit Cohen. Big Grin

RE: Atheists who work out
Okay, so I've had a migraine for like three days now, and today was almost as bad as when it started. It's not that 'time' (sorry tmi) so not sure what this is about. I'm thinking I consumed too much sugar this week, not a lot on average but I don't eat a lot of sugar anymore and I wonder if that could be the culprit. So annoying, it stops you from being productive. Weeping

Hug I hope you feel better soon!

Down 17 pounds from mid July: aerobic capacity better, lifting more, better balance/flexibility. Why do I still feel so flabby/fat??? Annoying. Refuse to believe it's the extra wine this week plus a night of Mexican. Will blame on the change redistributing fat into odd places.

Wow good for you! You shouldn't feel flabby/fat, you sound like you are doing great!

I'm definitely proud of making some positive changes and seeing the results… I think the problem is that I used to be in REALLY good (fitness model-level) shape. Of course, at that point in my life I had the time to teach 20 exercise classes per week and work out on top of that, which I do not now. Somehow the closer I get to a decent level of fitness, the farther away from it I feel. It's kind of like when you stop doing something for a while, you start again and at first you just feel kind of great, and then the critical sense kicks in and you realize how far you have to go to regain your old skills.

I know what you mean, I used to be in extremely good shape as well from teaching exercise classes plus working out on my own on top of that. I still consider myself to be in pretty good shape--but nowhere like I was. At this point in my life, I'm kind of happy to have a Sofia Vergara-like body as opposed to a "model skinny" athletic body that I used to have and needed to work extra hard to maintain. I like drinking wine and eating sweets and junk food on occasion. I used to avoid all of that stuff. I'm much happier now. I also find I get more attention now from the opposite sex having toned curves than I did when I had a more athletic body.

I am sure you will get yourself back to where you once were if you keep working hard--especially since it sounds like you know what you are doing from having a background in fitness. It'll just take a little time, but you will get there. Smile
