Today was supposed to be a rest day, so I thought it would be a good day to try my new yoga DVD.
I should have known better – it is Jillian Michaels after all. Who else would call out, “Who’s your daddy?” in the middle of a yoga video?!
It actually wasn’t so bad, but was more fast pace than you would expect. It got my heart rate up to the point where I felt I got a good work out, but I wasn’t exhausted by the end either (like I am with 30 day shred). Since my legs were sore today, I chose to stretch through some of the leg strengthening exercises, but I got a great upper body and core workout.
It was entertaining to watch Jillian try to teach yoga. You can tell this is not her strong suit. At one point she tells you to, “meet your heart into your thigh… that’s yoga speak for stretch as far as you can,” and she cracks up a bit 🙂
I had some company during this video. Bailey wanted my yoga mat for her own stretching!
I tried kicking her off a few times, but ended up doing my exercises on the carpet next to her. I guess she won that battle!
