I have always been underweight so I can't speak from personal experience, but I have heard running is not the best sport for weight loss. I'm not sure why that is, but I can say I have actually gained about 8 pounds since I started running. For me, I think it's because I run marathons which requires replacing a lot of calories after training. So I'm sure I eat more now than I did before I got back into running.

It really varies from person to person, but the most important consistent thing is making sure you're in a calorie deficit. I personally am really not worried about how much I weigh as I'm more muscular and broader shouldered than most women anyways. I'm never going to be lean and petite. I just want the belly fat gone! lol

I also like to take it down a notch after a harder yoga practice, so going easy today (plus, I'm teaching two classes later). Yesterday, I did some advanced poses included in about 80 minutes of asana. So vinyasa plus some of these poses:

I also did some handstand variations using a wall like this lady

RE: Atheists who work out
I got the treadmill belt installed and did 30 minutes of basic cardio. Great to have it going again, as we live out in the sticks and the local walking is not good.

You gotta work up to it Tongue I have to admit I'm kind of obsessive about yoga (in a good way Big Grin ) But I couldn't do all the poses when I first started. However, over time your body adapts into various shapes.

I've always been really flexible, just naturally and had pretty decent upper body strength just from working out, but you don't really need either of those things to start yoga. If you take it in baby steps, I bet you could get there too Thumbsup or even if you can't, it doesn't matter, true yoga is about doing what you can do and honoring where you are.

RE: Atheists who work out
Every so often I like to mix things up with a circuit which I combine with yoga poses. Today, did some mountain climbers, burpees, planks, side planks, and crunches.

RE: Atheists who work out
Not that I don't love having the kids around and gorging on Christmas chocolate for a few days but between work, daycare being closed for the holidays, and my girlfriend's parents being here, it's hard to get in a satisfactory workout Weeping

Thanks Sanata, now go back to the north pole and let me get back to the grind. My to-do list is getting backed up.
