DDP Yoga – Day 2
I woke up this morning (no, I didn’t get myself a gun nor did Momma ever tell me I was the Chosen One) to a few aches in my arms and chest – evidently the little jaunt on DDP yesterday worked a few of the muscles that I don’t really work out much nowadays. After the mini session yesterday, I had to walk to the school and pick the kids up and walk back (about 2 miles round-trip) and the walk killed my back. But despite the aches in my arms, shoulders, chest and back I actually felt pretty good energy-wise and mentally. It’s my third day of annual leave and I was up before any alarms went off, sorted the kids’ packed lunches out, did the washing up, cleaned out the cat’s litter tray and food bowl and put down fresh food and litter, sorted out the kids’ breakfast and that was all in the first hour of getting out of bed. Usually I drag my heels and probably would have only managed to do the kids’ breakfast and packed lunches in that time.
Georgia normally has her nap around 11am so once she was up in her bed I decided to hit up the ‘Energy’ workout. Clocking in at just under 25 minutes, it took my mind off the aches and pains and loosened up my back and hips. I still haven’t got a heart-rate monitor but I could feel that the workout was working. Some of the ‘moves, were a bit of a struggle due to the lack of flexibility/pain threshold so I modified where I could but still pushed myself to the point that I felt I would get some value out of today’s work out.
I still ache but it feels good as it’s pain for the right reasons. I hope that this new found vigour that hit me this morning continues tomorrow and so on as it feels good to be productive and despite me being on annual leave, I don’t want to waste my time off – now is the time to work on myself and get any side projects I want to do started/finished so that I can maintain a focus and a drive that I so desperately need!
I know weight loss isn’t a focus at the moment but I wanted to track my weight out of curiosity. Today, I weighed in at less than my usual weight (13st 5lbs/187lbs) and weighed in at 13st 0.5lbs/182.5lbs so we’ll see how that goes as time goes on.
