Kathy here. Brooke that is a fantastic idea! Dad and I did one of the yoga workouts from the DVD I got him for Christmas last evening- it was his evening 'off' from his torture-inspired Jillian workout. It was relaxing! Good word to describe yoga, don't you think?! I think it is going to be a good addition to our quest for fitness - today I even feel somewhat less stiff and achy whenever I stand up.A physical therapist once told me that one of the most important things you can do for yourself to age gracefully is to keep flexible. I admit to being a bit skeptical at the time (about 10 years ago...). But am now a firm believer!
Anyway, while I think it is good to get the heart rate up and all that, what you did was a great alternative for 'those days'.
Kettlebell workout later this evening - and I really need to get my fitness plan down in writing.
This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!
