    Do you find yoga helps with fat loss? Or it's more for toning? My yoga teacher friend swears that yoga teachers generally have 'nicer figures' than Pilates teachers but I think yoga teachers self select from a crowd of people who focus on eating healthy (low fat/low calorie/ lots of veggies) and are usually slender to begin with. Pilates is more about restorative work and muscle/bone structure so it draws from a more cerebral fitness crowd or ex-dancers. That's just what I randomly think.

    Also, I thought it was so cute how you and @JocktheMotie posted right after one another! >_< Also, your respective work outs are so different. 0.o

    yoga is definitely great for toning like you said.
    but i think you'd need to be doing the most fast
    paced / cardio types of yoga that'll raise the
    heart rate up (ie ashtanga vinyasa/mysore/power yoga)
    yoga is definitely more of a "lifestyle" compared
    with pilates--where its focus is more on the physical
    aspect. pilates for me is very ab intensive, i think
    i what i get out of it is a stronger core. which in
    turn helps me with my yoga practice. it's very
    complementary.

    i like workouts that i can do on the go. things
    i can do at the office or at my apartment or
    in a hotel room.

    oh and @CzeCze, i was just telling jock about

    SO! Officially home, a little hung over But I feel amazing! I've tweeked my plan a bit thanks to some people that know how to work out for real. I.E. Not myself.

    The plan:
    - Two badass outdoor workout days. Run the distance, and mat drills on the way back at every quarter mile marker.
    - Two days of gym time. Warm up run/walk for only 20 minute followed by cross fit training.
    - One day of stretching and flexibility concentration. Yoga moves and working on holding positions and contractions.

    The goals:

    1. 270 on my PT test. This requires:
    - 46 push-ups in 2 minutes. While I CAN do that already, the goal is to be strong enough to do them without pausing or stopping, which I'm not even close to doing.
    - 80 sit ups in 2 minutes. Not even close to this one yet either.
    - 18:36 for the 2 mile run. The other two events are max, as in 100 pts each. This one is only 70 points, because the 100 pt mark is 15:36. I have never seen that time in my life. I don't expect to see it now.

    2. Be stronger.
    :c I don't have anything specific for this. I'm going to utilize IRL situations to guage how well I'm doing at this goal.. i.e. if a situation comes across I was able to handle, I'll consider it a good mark. If not, I'll know what to work harder on.

    I have completely forgotten where I am on my weeks, and if I am late posting or not. Must. Get. BETTER!

    Anyway, I've done 90 situps in the last week, 2 sets of Pilates, and a ton of walking. Actually, I did about an hour's worth or so of running! My small ankles don't handle running well, so I never do it.

    Since I am going up to Boston soon, much of my exercising will be in the form of Pilates, push ups, sit ups, and walking.

    Now, I am off to do 30 more sit ups. Not sure why I choose 30. Anyway, I am noticing some change. Fiesta!

    Ooooh, might incorporate some lunges.

    Going to be walking at the very least two hours today. And maybe running part of it. Thought I'd update first so I wouldn't for get.

    Fri 9/30 Home Workout

    20 wall squats
    20 stair lifts each leg

    5 rounds:
    15 pushups
    20 backups
    20 situps
    5 chair dips

    Completed the 5 rounds in 10:15.

    I changed the pushups again to an easier version to allow more reps, focusing on my weakest spot - the deep dip portion.

    Today I achieved a Zen-like mastery of my mind and body, somehow carrying myself over 6.5 miles in a sustained run

    Today is an incredible day, because I learned I can still surprise myself

    I'm going to go ahead and count yesterday's strenuous activity as a workout for me since my muscles are sore all over... I say it counts!
    I moved a 22 ft ladder around while I repaired my gutter in a couple of places.
    My glutes got quite a workout going up and down that ladder!

    This week's goal met!

    I am not working this week, so I will up my goal to TWO workouts per week - probably Saturday and Wednesday.
    I will probably go back to once a week, once I get a new job, but for right now, twice a week is a challenge for me.
