I haven't been posting because of drama, but I'm still doing the yoga. I am doing it earlier in the day now to help ease my stiffness at work.

Because of the issues with my phone, I was at the t-mobile store last night. I did the yoga but forgot to post.
Today I did it again. I may be on a roll.
I'm tired tonight, so I'm going to bed now. Hopefully I get enough sleep that I don't feel exhausted tomorrow.
It may just be the stress at home that causes me to be so tired all the time.

I'm still exhausted, and I got light headed during the personal training today. I also felt rather ill when hubby and I walked around the mall while the kids were in Tae Kwon Do.
I hope I'm not sick, as I'm on the sheet to donate blood tomorrow, my 44th birthday. Every time I've tried over the last year, my iron has been too low, but I've been taking extra iron off and on for the last year. My iron wasn't dangerously low, just a tad low according to the doctor who does my yearly female checks.
I'm going to bed a bit early because I am tired.
I'm having phone issues, so posting from my phone may be problematic tonight. If I can't do it, I'll either post by computer, or when I get to work the next morning like today.

I almost didn't do it tonight, but I thought I should go ahead and finish the week out. Day 7 is in the books it's late and I'm tired but we're there.
Last night I ended up with almost 10 hours of sleep. I fell asleep around 8:30 didn't get up until 5:30. I was less tired today.
We saw the Avengers movie tonight for my birthday. I liked it overall, though I saw a couple of reviews complaining about the number of characters.

Ugh. I can't stay awake tonight, so I'm headed to bed at 8:20. This isn't as unusual as I'd like it to be, unfortunately.
I did 30 minutes of personal training tonight, this time arms/upper body. So I skipped the down dog tonight. I did all the other yoga poses though. I'm still at a 10 count for 1 more day, then I add 5 and more poses.

I'm noticing that I'm not as stiff as I was. I'm not 100% better, but I am better.
Tonight I did the same as before including the mountain pose, tree and side bends. I did some extra leg stretches as well. My hip is aching, but I was able to stand up from my desk with no stiffness today. Yay :)
I've been adding veggies into my diet, but need to add more. I've been watching what I eat, but might need to bring the calories from 1460 to 1350. I need to exercise more. This I know.
On the other hand, I've been doing personal training for 30 min twice a week, and now I'm adding the stretches/yoga. I'm making progress, and have committed to an exercise challenge the month of May. I'm making the changes slowly so they stick around and I can keep the changes permanently.

Day 2 of doing yoga before bed to relax. It's not any easier yet, but as I said, it's only day 2.
I did add a few extra poses to stretch a bit more. I also did a mountain pose to focus, then a 10 second tree pose.
I still woke up stiff, but I didn't expect overnight success.

1) I'm having trouble reaching things. I'm not flexible any more, not like I used to be. Some might not notice it, but I do. Especially with the young kids still.
2) I have absolutely no energy. I'm constantly feeling worn down and want to sleep more than anything.
So tonight I'm starting with the first phase of my change. Tonight I did a total of 10 yoga poses, holding them gently and counting to 10 with each one. As they get easier, I'm going to increase the number and the time.
The poses are as follows:
side angle (done on both sides - I repeated all warrior poses when I went to do the side angle on the other side)
wide legged forward bend
half lord of fishes pose - both sides
I held each pose for a count of 10, but I'm thinking I'm going to look on Amazon for a full easy 15 minute routine to work out the kinks
The lack of energy may get better with a daily yoga practice. The 1/2 hour twice a week personal training isn't helping. I'm keeping active, and I'm wanting to sleep more than anything.
We'll see what happens Either way, I'll be doing the warrior poses, the angle pose and the forward bend at least once a day. The rest will be done before bed.
