I've recently gotten back into juggling. The first thing I noticed is my lower back quickly got tired. And my timing was rusty, especially with 2 in one hand. I had forgotten how fit juggling makes a person.

Time for winter clothes. Posted by Hello

Consistancy counts

Last night I waited too late to get around to exercising, so I ended up doing my walk in the dark. So I only did 15 minutes. Today I got a much earlier start and walked for 20. My knee didn't hurt as much as it did yesterday. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Creative workout

Friday's workout consisted of sorting and stacking boxes and moving furniture and dragging things out to the garage.
Which meant my Sat's workout plan of walking in the park turned into a slow stroll because my lower back hurt something awful.

Tough to decide sometimes.

They say that athletes make the worse patients. They won't stay off of injuries long enough to let them heal properly.So for once I'm going to let my head rule my heart. I'm staying off my bad knee today because I know a 2 hour class tonight would kill my efforts to let it heal this week. My two students are too new to go through class with verbal directions. I feel bad that I had to cancel though. Still better to skip one class than to do permanent damage.

Working around injuries.

I'm nursing a sore knee that I aggravated in belly dance class last Tues. I just hope I don't make it worse next Tues. I'm trying to stay off of it and work out my upper body instead.

Are you having water guilt?

I have always been sceptical of the commonly held belief that we should each drink 8 glasses of water (8 oz. per glass) every day. So this morning I did some research into it. And Bingo...I found an article that says this water thing is an urban myth. And that much of the daily quota is met in the foods we consume that have water in them already. So go check it out if you also have wondered about this watery obcession. Perhaps the bottled water companies don't want us to change our watery ways.

We all need help now and then.

Like most people, I'm always struggling to get in shape and stay in shape. Since I'm alone a lot of the time, it's hard to stay motivated. But I think having a blog will keep me more aware of it, so I can stay on top of things. Intellectually, I think fitness is extremely important. Realistically, I'm not getting to the point I want to be. So there you have it. You can all witness my fitness efforts.
