2014TBL Weekly Challenge, Week 1, Challenge #2

Pick something that you have struggled with in the past and give yourself a second chance, try it again and try to do it better this time. Focus on improvement not perfection.

So, there are some yoga poses that I always really struggle with, so I thought I’d try one of those for this challenge. I’m honestly not sure how I thought I would see any real improvement in these since I haven’t been doing much yoga the last couple of months, but one can dream, right? 

I tried Half Moon, one which I’ve never been able to really do without a block. Tried it without a block, that didn’t go well…

Tried it with a block and … a bit better …

For about three seconds, anyway, but then …

So, I think the real lesson here is, at least for me, yoga requires consistent practice. I’ve always had very poor balance. Doing yoga consistently had started to improve it, but since I hurt my back in July and haven’t been consistent, those gains have slipped away.

I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to get back to a consistent yoga practice very soon and see improvement in that again.

62014tbl, week 1 challenge, journal, yoga, haven't been consistent, poor balance,

over-thinking-over replied to your photo “Good class at Jazzercise tonight. My back was hurting a little bit,…”

Check out your collar bones and shoulder muscles - awesome!

I have to admit, before I got the the end of your comment my mind was going, ‘What’s wrong with them?’ LOL! Oh, old, bad habits die hard!

Thank you so much! <3

Thank you, kind anon!

Good class at Jazzercise tonight. My back was hurting a little bit, which reminded me to not jump! Unfortunately, the hardest song in the set, where my HR would get the highest, had LOTS of jumping in it. :(
Some songs depend on using large muscles, like quads and glutes, to get your HR up, others depend on jumping. Unfortunately, when they depend on jumping and you can&#8217;t jump, it&#8217;s hard to get your heart rate up.
But, still, I feel I got a good workout and it definitely lifted my mood, which had turned a little sour for some reason this afternoon. Not sure why, just one of those funks, ya know?
Anyway, I feel better now, which is always good! I got some of my frozen bananas out of the freezer and I&#8217;m gonna make a tropical fruit ice cream thing later with those and one of my mangoes! YUM!  Not low carb, for sure, but 100% natural. Should be good!

I thought I’d make a little post about how I’m loving my Jawbone Up24 and today seemed good as I smashed my goals!
I’ve had it now for a few weeks and I love the band. I forget I’m wearing it most of the time, just wrapped around my wrist gathering all the data. To me tho what makes the Jawbone Up24 that much better is it’s app. The information it gives you is amazing!
You see an overview of your attempts to hit your goals in pic 1, perfect for a little glance at to see how many steps I’ve got. But it’s when you look further it gets better, in the 2nd picture you can see your sleep broken down into digestible info. Handy to see how restless I was, length of sleep, if I woke up and when etc. Its the other 2 pictures tho that I focus on the most. The first is my activity/steps obviously, what I love about this is it not only shows how long I’ve been active or idle, but the ability to log my activities is brilliant. This was one thing I hated with my V1 Nike Fuelband, I couldn’t log a run or cycle or weights session. With the Up24 I can do all that, making it perfect to log my gym sessions into. The other picture is about the food, now you can input your food on the app, but what is great is it can be linked up to MyFitnessPal, which is what I do. While it won’t show up your exact meals it does log aspects of your food (fibre, fat, sugar, protein etc). This I really really love, it gives me an insight I didn’t have before in handy easy graphics. Also I get a food rating (the big circle number) this fluctuates depending on what you eat and log, today was a healthy day!
While there are many more awesome aspects to the Up24 app (idle alert, vibration alarm, motivational posts, challenges etc), these are the main features that appeal to me!
Honestly if you just want a fitness tracker or something to motivate you check out the Up24. I’m so happy I bought mine!!!!!!

This looks really cool! Thanks for sharing it!

6Jawbone up24, fitness tracking, steps tracking,

itsmyfitspo reblogged your post and added:

If you’re really wanting to run, look in to the ZeroRunner that Octane makes. It’s like an elliptical crossed with a treadmill— so the running motion and workout without the impact

Running has never been my ‘thing’, but as soon as I was told I COULDN’T I immediately WANTED TO! :-) When I’m out on my walks I actually have to stop myself from breaking into a jog now, while before it might not have even occurred to me. The old ‘want what we can’t have’ syndrome!

This sounds interesting tho. I’ll keep it in mind, for sure! Thanks !

6itsmyfitspo, running, low impact running, journal, reply, back health,

I’d ask for an MRI before agreeing to this type of conservative treatment. A lot of lazy orthos want to maximize profit by making sure they max out the number of injections your insurance will pay for (usually 3) before they consider anything else

Well, at this point, I’m not going to do anything except something conservative, and he said he felt it would only take one (not that it couldn’t change later, I’m sure).  I understand your point, believe me!

Right now, I’m at the point of doing this or nothing, just living with it, and continue to treat with Chiro and exercise/stretching and see what happens.

Thanks for the advice, tho. I will keep it in mind!

6liveasbravemen, reply, journal, back health, back,

Look at our website Dherbs.com there are all natural herbs for various health situations or call us at 866.434.37.27

Okay, thank you! I will.

6journal, back health, submission,

Have you considered using herbs to help your back ?

No, I haven’t.  I don’t know what herbs to try. Topical or Oral? Can you link me to more information?

I've got steroid injections in my lower back recently and the first one hurt for almost a day and the second one didn't hurt at all. They didn't help me though so I can just take medicine daily and use patches and hope it doesn't get worse.
Anonymous

Well, I’m thinking that there isn’t a lot of down-side to trying it. If it doesn’t work, I don’t think I’ll be any worse off than I was, right?  I’m not to the point of having to take meds daily, hope to avoid that as long as I can.  I’m not looking forward to it hurting from the shot; I hope it doesn’t hurt as badly as my shoulder did, cos I probably will not be able to walk if it does. :/

Thanks for the note!
