I started a Healthy Back Challenge last night. It's the same guy that did the Hip Opener challenge and I really, really liked that. My thought is that I would do both every night, but the back challenge has a stretching component so maybe not. I don't know, we will see how it goes. But I did it last night and it felt good. I definitely need to make stretching/flexibility/opening/etc part of my self care. It is super important to me. I want to be able to move easily through my life and to continue to do so.
In other news, there is really no other news. Yesterday was Monday and so it was back to school.
Oh, I don't know if I've written about this yet but I got an Oculus 2 for Christmas. I quickly found this app call SuperNatural. It is a workout app. They have boxing, meditation, stretching, and what they call flow. Flow is where you have bats and hit at things flying towards you. It is super fun. Anyway, in my effort to move more I have signed up for it. I know that I can't go crazy with it because it is all cardio and I know what too much cardio does to my body. But it is a great stress reliever at the end of the day, just listen to some music and bat at things. Boxing is fun too, I can feel it in my arms and shoulders. There is another app called Beat Saber where you slice things to music, that's fun too. So I've just been doing those things when I feel like it. Just working on getting up and moving more. It's fun. It's not a super strenuous workout and I have to remember to keep it light and fun.
Otherwise I got nothing really. Just need to keep typing until my tree grows. Focus, focus, focus.
Yesterday was far better than any day last week because I was not so completely tired. I was still tired by the end of the day, but not that complete and total exhaustion I had last week. Part of that exhaustion was the lack of movement recently. I've been averaging well under 5,000 steps a day and sitting a whole lot. So actually being up and moving last week was completely exhausting. Also, not sure if I wrote about this, but my sleep was off. I could not seem to get the rhythm of sleep again. I analyzed it and worked it out and I think I got it back. At least I hope I do. Okay, time to get ready for work.
