Yesterday I did a short strength practice (which is the norm right now!) from Lift with Cee followed by 2 different yoga practices, a short flow from Kate Vantucci Yoga and a short neck and shoulders practice from Yoga with Olga.

Sandra, how frustrating! I worry whenever I feel those little tweaks in my low back because I do NOT want to have an episode again. I hope you are able to head things off.

Linda, hope your headache improved. You are really getting back into the swing of things exercise wise!

cyana, I love your February theme!!! We've had a bit more sun here, which is great, although prepping for bitter cold tomorrow.

Hi Paine!

Good morning all! The leg kicking started again last night. I rubbed my leg down and massaged my feet with lavender lotion, and it calmed down enough I could get to sleep. I wonder if it's nerve impulses from my hip issue, which has been sore? I follow up with the ortho Monday and have a lot of questions.

Yesterday I did:

~ GYM for 20/15/10 arc trainer, recumbent bike and treadmill
~ SarahBeth Deep Stretch Neck & Shoulders
~ 6,390 steps

Sandra, oh no! So sorry to hear you tweaked your back. Lee's Qigong for Back Pain is perfect for it, I hope it helps you get better quick.

Waves to all!

Pat, do you have Restless Leg Syndrome? I've had that a few times and it's annoying.

Beth, my strength workouts are usually under 30 minutes, so they aren't that long.

cyana - there's a fake Cubii called Ellipsefit. The rotation is bigger and so is the price. Too bad it looks cheap.

Beth - I still have a headache but I worked back and biceps last night because I could. Now that the pain is gone and I can use my wrist for almost everything, I can do some of what I want. I'm rethinking getting the right thumb and shoulder fixed to get rid of the pain. Too bad they can't fix them both at the same time.

I don't know what I'm doing today other than hand therapy and laundry.

Hi!

Today's "Workout": My Thursday shift at the food closet. My back is doing better but stiffens up some when I sit for long periods, so being up and moving around felt fine. On Friday I may be ready to try yoga class again -- will wait to see how everything feels tomorrow.

Beth: This tweak wasn't too bad, but like you I've had some bad ones that really incapacitated me, and I don't want to go there again.

Cyana: I like the "Join the Resistance" theme also!

Linda: That's great news that you can use your wrist again.

Pat58: I like how you used lavender lotion and massage to soothe your leg.

Waving to all!

Testing the waters, I did upper body with a body bar. The dr said I'd probably never be able to use a straight bar. I didn't have a problem with it. Happy! Happy!

This yoga was nice overall and especially because it gave me an opportunity to use my strap for a couple of moves (a single leg stretch and arms in cow face pose).

Sandra: Sorry to hear about your back, but glad you were able to recognize it and and make sure you didn't do anything to make it worse. And yay for having a go-to practice to coax it back to normal!

Pat: Hope you get a solution or some answers for the leg kicking soon.

Linda: You are making GREAT Progress!!

Waves to all!

TGIF all! I will have to catch up later - I had a frustrating day yesterday where I had to reload all of the music on my phone and lost all of my playlists that I use for yoga. Long story short, I hate itunes!!! I might have to spring for a Spotify subscription.
