I went to my very first ever yoga class last night and the stretching felt sooooo good! I cannot do a couple of the poses due to tenderness in my toes so the instructor showed me alternatives using a wall for support, sort of doing pushups on the wall instead of the floor.
My exercises have settled into a routine of cardio every other day and strength and stretching on the alternative days.
I start the twice a week aerobics class in two weeks, the structure will be welcome!
Still at 122 pounds, managed not to gain anything over the holidays. Now that I'm gaining muscle I'm enjoying feeling stronger after being so weak from the arthritis attack. And, I hope more fat from my thighs goes away.
I'm still focused on climbing the backside of Half Dome in June. Slow and steady wins the race.
