Not getting very far these days. Workouts have been a bust for me due to illness and back pain. After chiseled upp and core 1 I have been
dealing with terrible back pain.
Yesterday for the first time in a week and half I did:
a walk on the TM 4.0 and hills up to 8% (an ifit WO) 2.58 miles total for 42 min.
Then I did Stretch Max 3 with the band This felt great on my back! Just did the legs mainly.
Today was catching up on Z's due to poor sleep last night. This after was house pick-up. I just can't stand a mess... :/
Maybe do another stretch out this evening.
My goals for this year: Add more stretching!!!!
I hope that you all had a great Christmas and New Year's Eve. Sorry I have been MIA...just not up to sitting very long or doing anything really these days. Getting to work each day has been a struggle. Popping way too many Aleve just to get through it.
Have a great first day of the New Year 2016!
I also did Weight Loss Walking (4 DVD's) Walking for Weight Loss = 43 min. You probably wondering why I am working out so hard, lol? Well, my son is getting married the end of this month. DH and I will drive in our RV for 3 day's, not sure how much/how many workouts I get in? I usually workout in the RV with no problem, but I want to make sure I am not behind my weekly dvd goal
Quick post to say - yesterday - no wo, but all the guests left and I signed up for a marathon in October. Today - ballet, dog walk and D28 - continuing to make progress on STS but will need to switch to a running/keeping legs & glutes healthy routine when I'm done.
Belinda - Great job on your wo's, as usual. Will be interested to see what you come up with to keep wo's on track during your RV trip.
Heidi - Sorry you have been feeling so bad lately. Totally agree on the stretching!
Ok, gotta go. Meeting with friends tonight - and it's not at my house (thank goodness!). Be back tomorrow.
I just did JS 5 Mile Fat Burning Miles plus both bonus workouts. One bonus workout was The strong feet and Ankles = 15 min, the 2nd workout was The strong knees & Hips = 15 min. Really liked both lower body stretches. I also did GIAM Upper Body BalanceBall workout w/Suzanne Deason = 40 min. Great arm/ back/chest opener. I really needed those stretches today. I need to start doing more yoga/stretches. I am so stiff these day's
Hi Heidi! have you tried Acupuncture for your back pain? I use it faithfully for my neck and have used it for back pain as well. I've had a synovial cyst in my spinal cord, low back area, had surgery for that and then not long after that I had a bulging L5, acupuncture does wonders for me not only for pain, but i really think it helps with healing! I like it much better than massage for the muscle spasms that can come with spinal issues.. also foam rolling the muscles that attach to the low back, hamstrings and even quads. Take care, I hope you feel better soon!!
dawn9222 - thanks! I think I need to try Acupuncture for my back. I also had a few bulging discs. I will look into it next week.[/QUOTE]
Yes, do it! I have a special love for acupuncture.. it helps with so many things.. from digestion, sleep, hormones, pain, I do it for my neck and knee pain right now, but she'll also do stuff to help with digestion if I need it! Good stuff.
Sherry - we are almost at the finish line YES, I will complete the wo list include all premixes for every DVD The reason I am doing it with ALL the premixes.....so I stop buying new dvd's It's a shame, I have so many dvd's with premixes that I never do. Quit frankly, there nothing new out there. I have enough dvd's to last me a few years. I am happy to report...I survived all the sales in Dec and Jan Every time am looking at a dvd in the store, DH reminds me of my "NO BUYING" All my dvd's collection dust, have to use what I already have!
