Due to last week’s sniffles carrying over into this week, along with the dental work I have had done this week, I have not been very energetic.
But this has been a good excuse for me to dust off a couple of my old favorite DVDs and give them another try. I have been longing to do Pilates for several months now… but just was not able to because the up and down movements brought on an uncomfortable dizziness that made me nauseous as well. And that is also what has been holding me back from getting more involved with Yoga.
I thought that since I have learned to loves to stretch, that a Yoga practice might go nicely hand in had with that… but the same dizziness kept me from it.
I have found that following the Whole30 Paleo Challenge this month has cleared up whatever inflammation was plaguing my ears and my head, and I am not experiencing this same dizziness anymore. Hurray! So, I have been able to welcome back Pilates and Yoga into my workouts, and they have been a really nice way to get in some exercise and stretching…. particularly on days I haven’t felt well enough to do anything more strenuous.
These are the DVDs I have been using. Are you familiar with either of them?
Do you practice Pilates or Yoga?
What kind of exercise do you do when you aren't particularly feeling well?
