Yoga for your back & #GoalsCheck Monday!

This is the last week of July and I hope you have tried a few of the exercises we introduced this month. As always, please check with your doctor if you are unsure about trying a new exercise.

I have done something to my back, I think it was the sit-ups last weekend. It was better but had gotten worse again, came back with a vengeance. I swam last night and stretched. I was searching for stretches for me and then decided to share what I found with you all.

You’ve probably seen most of these, but they really felt good to my back!

I’m hoping a few days of stretching and maybe some light exercising will get my back well. If not, I may have to pay a visit to my favorite chiropractor. Marathon training officially begins in 2 weeks so I don’t have time to play around!

Here are my goals for this week.

#GoalsCheck 500x500

  • Swim: got that done last night, will try to go again this week.
  • Water: I have to be better. I’ve been trying to tell Ally to drink water and she might have finally heard me Saturday. She had a really bad run and I think it was dehydration.
  • Still tracking my food in My Fitness Pal.
  • Running: gotta push myself to do 5 miles on Tuesday and Thursday. I have been cutting it short and walking a lot instead of pushing myself to finish my run. The humidity is getting to me, but I can do this. I just have to get past my head.
  • Home organization: Need to tackle another cabinet, hopefully this week.
  • I need to be better about cooking meals at home.
