If you are familiar with yoga, no doubt you have heard of the pose called "downward-facing dog," which is pictured at the left.
Well, I have been doing simple stretches for 6 weeks so thought I'd try some actual poses today. Note to self --- when you still weigh about 300-plus or minus, do not allow your mind to write checks that your body cannot cash --- lest you catapult yourself across the living room, landing on your glass coffee table-- which miraculously doesn't break, but your back nearly does.
So, I invented a new yoga pose today called "downward-facing whale." I don't suggest you try it unless, A) you are at goal weight and B) your parents were circus performers and you are accustomed to being launched about the room.
Oh well, I am still on track with the food and exercise, although I won't be trying any other new things in the near future.
