After my post last night I had the crazy urge to do Sculpt 1-2 on P90.  This is the first P90 and although tough for me, it is not the insane one they advertise on tv.  I am nowhere near that level.  In fact, Sculpt 1-2 is pretty challenging for me, but it felt great to actually sweat.  This video consists of weight lifting, push ups, squats, and lunges and it is only 28 minutes long.

It has been a year and a half since the last time I did the video and while it was difficult, it was much easier than my first attempt at it.  Thank you yoga for making me strong in a not as sweaty as at the gym kind of way.  Doing it after yoga might not have been the best idea.  My body was shaking during my shower.  I am sure it was due to muscle fatigue, but be careful if you have this same feeling (particularly if you are diabetic) as it can be a sign of low blood sugar.

I am hoping that doing a combination of different types of work outs will aid in my yoga.  They might not make me more flexible, but strength is also important.  Especially because I really Really want to be able to do the crow posture.  I don’t know why I latched on to that balancing pose singularly; maybe it has something to do with a yoga teacher when I was young trying to describe stacking your bones and muscles to hold yourself up in it.  Last night was the first night I was really able to lift off of the ground controlling my muscles.  I did not try to fling my self into the pose as I do so many others.  And it worked.  I could only hold it for 2 seconds.  I think that is a good start.  And I had similar success with it this morning.  I think I will be flying high in no time.



P.S.  As soon as I can do it without straining my face ( I think of a wrestler, maybe Macho Man and how he would strain his face until it shook and turned violently red) and can hold it long enough, I will post a picture.  It will be nice to look back and remember where I started.
