I'm not too sure what to blog about today.

I'm enjoying all the stretches. I think the morning ones will be integrated into my routine from here on in. I also quite like the movement, balance, and pose ones as well. I feel really great afterward. And in the evening, well, I actually feel like I'm stretching.

The hips are still giving me some grief. The pain actually kept me awake last night. I have no strength, especially in the left hip flexor. Getting up from off the floor is a real challenge. The activity that seems to make things worse is walking. Today I went cycling and I feel fine. Saturday I also went cycling but got a flat tire and ended up walking 8km back home.....so yesterday was not great. (for the record, last night, I also learned how to change a flat on my bike......)

Tomorrow we are off on our cycling trip to Quebec. I've packed my yoga mat and intend to continue on with the program as best I can. My hiking boots are also packed but not sure how much hiking I'll be doing.

As for the diet.....let's just say we're not really going to talk about the diet for the next eight days.

        Yes! It's so much easier to incorporate something into daily workout routine when its enjoyable and leaves you feeling great afterward. I think a lot of us will be keeping wake-up stretches in our lives long after the program ends. Sounds like you have a wonderful week ahead. Hope the hip pain doesn't get in the way of all the activities you have planned.

          Gisele, you know your body well. When I read, "I had a hard time getting up off the floor" my heart wants to break a little bit. And yet, it doesn't seem to deter you at all. You are finding a way around, over, and through the pain. Learning all the way. It's remarkable!

          Enjoy your holiday. Continue to listen body and nurture your well being. We'll be here!

              Those morning stretches really helped keep me limber through my last pregnancy.
