Well, I have been on Sparkpeople for just over a year and my morning routine has become just that, I guess, a routine. My alarm is set way earlier than I would like, & I've never been one to hit the snooze, so I'm up & into my workout before my brain has a chance to say, wait, maybe we can skip it today.
But today, my lower back was very tight & sore, my DH brought me an icepack when he got up for work but it didn't seem to help this time. I got up and walked around & checked on my Spark challenge as to what I was supposed to do & by then my brain was trying to talk me out of a workout. Although I want to take care of my back, I'm finally on a decline with the scale numbers again & I don't want to lose that.
The nice thing is, is that I have quite the variety of workouts I can do...cardio dance, ST, Spark DVD of cardio and/or ST, pilates, ski machine and.... YOGA...of course, I can do the yoga because it is gentle movements and I decide how far I can stretch I went through one set and my back was still sore so I did some gentle touch my toes stretches and did a 2nd set. walking around (& ibuprophen) has started to help so I am proud of myself for not just dropping the ball on my workout. Even the gentle movements I did are helpful so I guess I never really have a good excuse for not trying SOMETHING each day. Every little bit helps!
