After trying and not loving ice skating and downhill skiing, I was so nervous when the hubby asked me to go cross-country skiing. He is a big winter sports kinda guy and I wanted to share in the fun. So we headed out to a relatively flat area in the Jemez Mountains, the Valles Calderas.
|Hubby Practice Falling|
Ironically, about 20 minutes after taking this picture, Jay really did fall hard on his bum. And then I did a complete face plant. It was really hard to stop laughing and get back up.
In the spirit of trying (and liking) new methods of exercise, I gave a pi-yo class a chance. This mixture of pilates and yoga is so intense! I'm not sure how most classes are set up, but this one flowed from one position to the next and in between there were reps of exercises. For example, we went into plank then did two push-ups, then upward facing dog and back up to plank and repeated the entire process several times. As soon as we finished that we moved into downward dog and did several tricep push-ups while still in downward dog! By the end of this class, my heart rate was up and my muscles were jelly. Fantastic, in my book!
I'm working on a post with an update on my goals and one where I'll be sharing a recipe for crock pot enchiladas. Stay tuned! Have a great week!
