walked to the local knitting store for their annual Jan 1 knitting party. Google says that was 2.4 km total. Very few people out today, even though it was a lovely day.
Just finished day 1 of the YWA Home series, it was the perfect practice for me today. Slow and intentional and I feel really great. Also planning a nice walk later once Bobbin wakes up since it’s cold but sunny. We’ll bundle up and go get some energy out of the pup.
I went to yoga this morning. I don’t normally go on Thursdays, but I was unusually free today. Thursday is the hard class, with too many low planks/pushups for my liking. Will be sore tomorrow, but I’m glad I went.
This is lovely. <3
I did some yoga yesterday and got a nice walk in; so far today, I walked to the gym and spent some time on the rowing machine. Hoping to get a nice walk in with Wizard on the way to seeing Star Wars later today.
Today I went on a walk, which was lovely because the sun was out, and I got to explore more of my neighborhood (moved here a few months ago). I found some cool new places, and had good talks with my brother who was with me. After a lunch date with a friend, I was offered a ride home, but I was a 15 minute walk from home and decided to continue my walking trend.
I’m having some lower back pain (minor), so putting a public reminder to myself to do some yoga and/or stretching.
I walked New Pup x 2 yesterday while Oldster was sleeping.
Washed dishes by hand. This totally counts according to my doctor
Moved some furniture from one room to a different room (shelf, entry table).
Walked up and down the escalator at work today (my office is on the first floor, nearest/best restroom is on 2nd floor by escalator), walked escalator and stairs from 1st to 3rd floor and back.
I walked all over the house tidying up and cleaning, and also went out for a walk/run at the local park. It was beautiful and sunny and I had the park all to myself.
I walked through two airports- does that count I’m now visiting parents so I’m going to have to be extra conscientious about getting moving ha
Once Husband got home, he took the baby and I used the chance to get outside and speed walk with headphones in and music playing. It was only like a 15 min loop, but it was good for me. Blustery and drizzly, but I’m glad I went. I was dragging me feet beforehand.
Had to take transit into work because I had my heavy laptop, but walked home with the shadowy one and did my arm weight reps this evening.
Never made it out for the walk I planned since nap time ended up coinciding with it getting dark. But I did end up doing lots of baby presses and other Baby entertaining movement that has left me pleasantly sore and made Bobbin giggle.
Did a short walk with my mum to an op shop close to her house and back, then when it was dark, walked 20 min to the library with husband and back.
I walked part of the way home from work since the train was delayed.
Prompted by the thread, I did my pushups for today.
I did the YWA today and, although I am not sure I love her style, I will probably try to do it all 30 days. It’s a bit tough to do when you don’t know the moves and your glasses hang crooked, awkwardly off your face because they are broken though. It was supposed to be about recognizing right? So one thing I recognized was that my carpet is really dusty smelling despite the fact that I just vacuumed a few days ago. Grr. Also her dog makes me miss my doggie.
For me at least I find that she describes things pretty well, and since its youtube I can always pause and figure out the pose if I need to whereas in a class I would have a hard time asking for help. Plus she’s consistent in how she talks about the movements and phrases the vinyasa so after a while you can start to predict that once she says one cue, usually something consistent follows so it helps me to anticipate what’s coming next.
Today I did day two of YWA Home even though I was really dragging. None of the small creatures in my house slept well last night so I also got movement in the form of a 2:30am & 6:45am pup walk (plus the normal longer walk at a more reasonable time). I am so tired but I feel really good after yoga so I’m glad I did it. Its weird and rainy but I might see if H can get home from work in time to do a family trip to the dog park and then take a walk around the larger park there too.
The weekends are where I always fall off the wagon in terms of doing yoga so I’m going to push myself hard to do yoga first thing in the morning after feeding Bobbin because we have a busy day tomorrow. Posting it here to hold myself accountable.
First swim of the new year!
People trying yoga with Adrienne or any new video yoga or fitness instructor…challenges are cool and all, but until I know an instructor, I’m more successful doing 1-2 videos repeatedly until I get it. In fact, Billy Blanks’ Tae Bo and other VHS series I used to have, would either have an intro video to learn basics, or would tell you to watch all the way through before attempting. Different learning styles for different people
