If you are doing yoga and it hurts, you are doing it wrong.

Why fight? Because I don't want it and it is damaging my health. I'm too young to give up. Baby steps, I'm just in the first stages and my research has shown that I can do this and it will help me. And maybe if I can get Shrek into it, we can celebrate our 30th anniversary, in December.

Besides, my fat jeans are getting tight

There are lots of different types and levels of yoga. For some advanced poses, the beginner's equivalent is lying on the floor doing some stretches.

Please, do you have any sun salutation sequences? You could start by doing a few reps of one of those for 5 or 10 minutes and then go for a walk.

No offense taken, just giving my rationale for doing it. If it makes me miserable, I will stop, but so far it's just made me sweat...a lot.

It might be easier to do yoga later in the day, when your body has already stretched a bit.

What I can do is step out of this particular subject gracefully.Without further unintentional bent out of shape sequences intended.

What I said was meant to be taken in a light hearted way.No more no less.

Best of luck to you with your new yoga regimen, princess. I can imagine starting out is the hardest part.

Son in law is working night shifts this week, so daughter and grandson are coming over for dinner tonight. I'm thinking a nice cool taco salad will be good, and grandson loves it. Heading out to the store now to get the ground beef for the salad, I have everything else. Except I'm out of ice cream, MUST have ice cream...

Since I am just starting out, I need to find the best time for me, one day does not a habit make...maybe after work but before dinner.

I am going to work on some of the simple stretches tonight, before bed.

Going to go dig out a couple more sets of my weights.

I'm sorry, a typo got past me. The word please above should say PF. I was asking her that.

I'm not upset or offended in the least by what you said. I was just trying to explain a bit about my experience, which has been all at the beginner level. No worries
