Weight Loss Project

O.K.--after Bikram Yoga today (I sweat like a pig, but drink lots of water, and finish up with a 20 oz. Smoothie) I weighed in at 190.2 pounds. 
I think I've figured something out.  One of my problems is always balancing all of the working otu, and fighting burnout.  One of the problems is that, if I'm not careful, after a brutal workout ther eis still so much tension in my obdy that I don't sleep well that night, creating a vicious burnout cycle.  You have to RECOVER from a workout for it to be useful.  Well, this week I carefully, VERY carefully experiemented with a little Clubbell or kettlebell work before yoga.  A couple of weeks ago I started experimenting with doing a few Hindu Squts and Pushups IN the heated yoga room. 
Today, I did a little of body.  The idea is to do no more than 15 minutes of kettlebell or Clubbell (or less) and then as many Hindu Pushups as I can do in the yoga room, and double that number of squats.  Then survive yoga.  The next day---Five Minute Miracle (using Body-Flow variations), with Warrior Wellness and Silat ONLY.  Don't push the tissues.  In other words--pure active recovery day.  I felt like superman after class.  it was terrific. 
My reasoning:
1)  I figured that the heat would reduce my endurance so much that any Hindus I did were worth twice the actual count, while not taxing my joint and tendon recovery as much.

2)the KB and CB work "pre-exhausts" me for the Yoga, making it more effective as an endurance builder.

3) The Yoga is active recovery from the KB/CB work, guaranteeing me a deep, healing night's sleep.

4) I confess it's  actually good, evil fun to watch the people suffering around me in Yoga, because they have no idea what I put myself through before I even got there.  Does my old heart good.  When I see people half my age crawling out of the room....well, sniff, I get all sentimental inside...

Really, really interesting.  Keep you posted!

So work out hard and run hard. Walking is fine if you are just starting out or you need to just get out of the house. But for long term health and weight loss you need to actually exercise and walking is about as poor of an exercise as you can get Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Today, I did a bit of body. The idea is to do no more than 15 minutes of kettlebell or Clubbell (or less) and then the Hindu Pushups as much as I could do in a yoga room, and double the number of squats. Then survive yoga. The next day --- Five Minute Miracle (using a variation of the Body-Flow), with soldiers Wellness and Silat ONLY. Do not push the network. In other words - pure active recovery day. I feel like superman after class. it was great.
