Progress Report #1

No big moments of bing. I don't know, personally I feel a bit blank and empty after doing Shiva Nata. (I know, I know, I've been doing it for, what, four days? Talk about needing to cut myself some slack!) But I've learned a few things from reading the archives on shivanata.com. One is that I should probably slow the heck down. I was going through the entire Level 1 series (or at least most of it) every time, but Havi recommends that you only do 10 minutes at a time.

The problem with this is that I bought the DVD out of a desire to keep exercising, lose weight, get in shape, that sort of thing. 10 minutes a day isn't going to do it for me.

But I'm all for the epiphanies and the increased coordination part of it. So I'm going to keep going. Flail about for 10 minutes, rest for 2, then do some other kind of exercise.

Some possibly shivanautically related things:
  • The other day I came home from walking the dog before bedtime, and when I walked in the door everything looked new. Or, more like, I felt like I was looking at it all from a different angle. My first impression is that I felt taller. Just a moment of hmm.

  • This morning, when I tried the new routine described above, I was trying a new dance aerobics video. I love me some dancing, and I want to learn new moves, but usually these videos move too quickly for me and I get way frustrated. This morning, however, I was able to...well, not keep up, but at least follow along closely enough that I didn't feel like throwing anything. (Or drowning my sorrows in chocolate, which would be counterproductive at best.)
