Friday morning- my daughter has a decent nights sleep besides the intense leg cramps she had fir about an hour in the early morning.Unfortunately I’m not getting much sleep it’s excepted but it’s now catching up with me . at 5:30 am on my way back from getting coffee I broke down and took the elevator and the back to my daughter room. I took the 11 flights down but wasn’t really awake yet to tackle the steps I didn’t have the dexterity or energy.My husband will be coming soon so I will have okenery of oppertunites to rest and once rested I can take the steps later today . After my morning jaunt to get coffee I did 20 minutes of YouTube called twisting yoga for detoxing and engery . Ahhh it was very nice after the uncomfortable night in the hospital room chair .
Maureen hoping your healing well!
Yesterday was day 5 of the challenge for me and I did the recommended 30 min feel good fusion first. It was wonderful and I really enjoyed Jessica’s idea about thinking of it as “movement therapy” and directing gratitude at your body. Then I decided to add the recommended 20 min dynamic stretch straight on, which in hindsight I should have left until later. I wasn’t so grateful with my body during the routine as I started to feel nauseous and my head and neck started hurting. Maybe i just needed some food. So I stopped just before the end and had something to eat and drink and started to feel better. Hats off to you 3 ladies (and Maureen’s husband) for the amount of yoga you all do – something I need inspiration for!! Later in the day I did my Latin Dance walk and then in the evening the buns and thigh walk, just for some extra movement and steps. I did enjoy the “Truth about Getting Fitter” Jackie. My parents go to a Dance group every week where they are always learning new patterns, so I can’t wait to tell them how great that is for their brains!
Thursday morning- I was able to do rise and shine yoga before the testing . Unfortunately will be here at least two more nights . My daughter didn’t have any seizures during the testing period but they have gotten some really good brain wave data . Soooo we get to try again tomorrow morning for the time sensitive test . Thankfully she is being great and not fussy about the situation. I hoping to get in a fusion walk or body weight circuit in.
Day 6 and I am swapping the recommended workouts for another hike. Today I am joining a group to do The Ridge of the Eight Imortals (Pat Sin Leng). This is one of the most beautiful hikes in Hong Kong but it is long, isolated and challenging. I am looking forward to very much and I try to do this at least once every year. It is a winter hike because in summer you would need to take your body weight in water with you as the ridge is exposed and it is quite a long cardio “interval” getting up to the ridge and then a wonderful up and down as we visit each immortal mountain. The views are amazing and I love it. It is also an early start as I live as far way as you could possibly get on an island in South West Hong Kong and this hike is in the North Eastern New Territory and the group is meeting at 8.30am. However, nothing is more than 2.5 hours away in Hong Kong and to people here that is a long way. However, it will be a long day for me if I include traveling and we will be 5-6 hours on the trail.
The plan is to do the recommended bonus 18 minute stretching routine when I get home. I have been stretching or doing some yoga every day since I returned from Nepal. I am really feeling the benefits too.
I hope everyone is well.
Day 5 and I have taken today as a rest day as I was hiking. I started the day with the recommended (Day 7) 15 minute Yoga for Stress and Relaxation from Jessica’s new Yoga Fix download. That definitely got me ready for the walk today which was long, interesting and moderately challenging in fantastic company. I really enjoyed it a lot. When I got home I did the other recommendation for Day 7 Stretch Out Stress. A nice simple, relaxing stretch. Nothing complicated and just what my body needed. I now need to fix our and I am looking forward so much to a relaxing evening with my husband.
