cardio workouts have become routine ... so its time to change things up.
first change was to add a stairmaster workout; specifically, a step mill. not sure what the other kind is called (maybe a step machine?), but i hate that kind with a passion ... they are not meant for anybody over 200 lbs. those end up being too much of a tricep workout.
second change is to start back with yoga on the weekend. its been 3 or 4 years since my last class. took my 1st class with the entirely devious intentions to meet the contortionist yoga instructor ... ends up i liked the class. strength, flexibility, balance ... everything i'm good at! on the other hand, i cant stand the 'aligning your chakras' bit or 'turn off your mind' meditation nonsense. not to mention being the black sheep in a female dominated class. been staking out some of the classes, and i saw 1 other guy, but i dont think he really counts. you know what i mean. going to have to find the 'straightest' workout shirt i've got to wear. i'm also mentally preparing myself to not snicker everytime the instructor says 'downward facing dog' ... that'll never get old
