Day 945... family time

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Walked Cooper before heading to my parents' house to make lunch. I made twice baked potatoes topped with a sprinkle of ground beef and onions, along with corn, sliced cucumbers in a low fat yogurt dressing, and red cabbage. It was very yummy. Jeremy joined us, and there was just enough for everybody. I just had juice for dinner, but also had a couple substantial snacks along the way. I don't mind feeling a little hungry during the day, but I always make sure I have a significant snack near bedtime, or I wake up hungry in the middle of the night and then watch out... I will eat anything and everything. A turkey sandwich and an apple 30-60 minutes before I head off to bed seems to curb the middle of the night munchies.

Walked Cooper 3 times like usual today, plus three walks without him and a little ST and yoga. I don't seem to be getting any more flexible, but I keep stretching anyways. Maybe someday I will see a difference. I do think it helps with back and hip pain.

No firm plans to go kayaking again in the near future. Between the chilly temps and the rain there is not much interest.

    I just caught up on your blogs. As usual, your rest days crack me up as you are lapping the people who are really resting on their sofas!

    Cooper is fortunate to have such a carrying owner! Have a great day!

    Even with daily stretching and yoga practice, flexibility is something that comes very slowly. All of those connective tissues are TOUGH. One of the things that can make a big difference very quickly is adding a myofascial release practice with a foam roller:

If you don't have a foam roller, there is no need to spend $30 on a fancy one. You can just get a pool noodle from the dollar store.

    Sounds like you were busy! I stretch almost every day too and does help some after a time. I had a stroke 6 months ago and the flexibility took longer to come back somewhat afterwards than it seemed to before, even at age 59. I thought it should come back better and quicker anyway LOL. I think the time I spent in hospitals because of the stroke irritated my arthritis. But anyway, I'm doing pretty well and not ever going to give up! Hang in there!

    Our spring weather turned back the clock to winter again - snow in the mountains further north of us, and blowing winds and dust with near-hurricane strength gusts! I managed to get the pups walked in the morning before the winds and "bad air" warnings hit.
