I had a really bad IBS episode this afternoon. I haven't eaten dairy, but I started taking fiber pills with a probiotic inside. I don't know if that was the culprit, but the fiber pills are supposed to help, not make things worse.
Despite not waking up early to exercise, I made sure to be active this evening. I did my upper body strength training routine, and I did 20 minutes of Yoga. I did the Shiva Rea: Daily Energy DVD that I purchased earlier this month. I was really intimidated to try it. Let's face it, I am not a skinny mini, and Yoga moves can be very intense. I tried the first 20 minute program, Earth, last night. It was amazing. I loved the flow of the movements. However, this evening I did another 20 minute segment, Fire, and was not so great for me because it involved too much flexibility. One thing I did like in this routine was the child's pose. Very comforting and relaxing. I hope to do a week of Shiva's DVD because I want to try them all so I can make sure of which workout I like best and eventually combine them to make a longer program. That is the beauty of this DVD: 7, 20 minute programs that can be interchanged to make a complete program. Love it!
