I just cant make myself like it....

Oh gosh y'all...

I tried...

once again.

What in the world am I talking about?


Except this body has a bad shoulder & I will basically cry in extreme pain doing this move

The amazing workout program that I see a lot of people talking about - the workout that combines Pilates & Yoga.

First, let me once again reinforce my struggle with Yoga.

I just can't make myself like it.

I WANT to like it.

I know my body needs to stretch & I know I have kinks I need to work out.

But with this stupid sucky bicep tendonitis, it totally kills me to do hold all my weight on my arms to do these holds ... & I can't handle the repetitive sun salutations over & over. 

Just punch me in the face instead.

I will say, I do like Pilates. I like the ab work on that.  Strong core - I'm all about that.

So yesterday, I found a hybrid sheet that combines T25 with Piyo & thought, this may be something I need to challenge myself with.  Get the cardio of T25 & then try the full body workout of Piyo.... I printed out the schedule, pinned it to my cork board & put in the first DVD that started with Piyo Sweat.

I was 15 minutes in & I was MISERABLE!!!

I even said out loud, "I cant make myself do this anymore"... & popped it out & put in P90X3

(I also found a hybrid of P90X3 & T25)

I don't feel like I'm giving up on a workout - I just know its not for me.

Just like I want the world to love kickboxing... not everyone is going to love it.

It's good to see there are options for everyone out there - right? 

Not everything is black & white... no one is going to agree on everything

I just know I don't want to be bored out of my mind & making my BT any worse then it already is...

Piyo - back into the back of the cabinet you shall go...


  1. I know how you feel! Not everyone is going to like the same things and that's the awesome part about fitness! But it's good to experience and figure out what we do like! :)

  2. I feel ya! Sometimes I have such high hopes for something to add to the mix and I just can't. Not even a little. Alas- keep doing what you like to do!

  4. I feel ya! I have a shoulder that pops all the time, the other has 3 shots of cortisone in it....my knees on the inside get very tender, the aches and pains stink, but I just keep trying to find things I can do :) If I do most of the classes at the gym anymore ,like kickboxing or combat I can not walk for a few days...i want to like it, but it is not for me.

  5. definitely true - we are all different and we all like different stuff. i have never tried this, but i really just don't like working out at home to dvds and such. i can do a 15 minute video here and there, but my attention span doesn't last much longer than that.

  6. For me with yoga it's the repetitive downward dogs. When I did hot yoga the other day I seriously got a major headache from being upside down that much. Just say no to downward dog! I haven't tried PiYo but I don't know if I'd like it. I like moving a lot, not holding poses and stuff.

  7. I applaud you for trying all these different workouts. I think they all look hard...lol. My problem is that I just need to make myself MAKE time to do them..lol

  8. I don't think I"d like piyo. I like yoga. Yoga is the yin to my running yang.

    1. I always love seeing your yoga pictures... you make it look so calming :)

  9. I nearly ordered PiYo but a running friend of mine said :Dont do it!" I like me some yoga, but I want a hard workout.

    1. Good to see I'm not alone in my dislike for it :)

  10. Hey I use this phrase often: That's why they make chocolate and vanilla ice cream! Thank goodness we don't all have to like the same thing. I haven't tried either but you keep doing what you like and you'll put more effort into it than something you don't! :)
