I dragged my ass to produce a little sweat this evening. Instead of taking bus to go to Carrefour, I decided to walk all the way there. It was fun, a little bit cold but I enjoyed it.
I really want to try to jog, but dang it’s so windy and cold! If you asked, why don’t I use treadmill? Well, I don’t like walking or running in a running belt like a hamster, it’s boring for me 🤣🤣🤣
Jogging is quite challenging for me. I always have cramps after jog, so I take it easy… I know my limit 😊
The last time I did yoga was in January 1st, 2017. Yes, it has been 2 months. this morning I woke up with slight lower back pain. My body felt so stiff like a wooden board, that’s why I decided to do yoga.
I’m just a beginner. I do yoga mostly at home, so I can’t do any fancy asanas 😆😆😆 Since I had miscarriage in May 2015, I mostly do post natal yoga. I found it it help to “massage” my uterus, I could feel relieved for my pain. It also strengthens my core muscles and stretches my back muscles, which I think beneficial for people with the same condition as I do.
I follow Elena Brower’s Post Natal yoga video for my exercise. I used to do it everyday, but I’ve been lazy these last couple months 😰
You can get this DVD on Amazon. Nope, I’m not being paid for saying this 😆
This video is very gentle, that’s why I really like it. It also toned my fat tummy. It took more than a year to burn my stubborn fat belly but I got rid of most of it and feeling stronger.
I did the exercise from this video this morning, my body was as stiff as wood. I was struggling to do the poses properly, even for downward facing dog… one of my favorite poses. I was shaken when I did warrior I, oh dear😰 I must accept the fact that it will take couple weeks to stretch my muscles. Well, I did it to my self…
This is my yoga mat from Lululemon. It started to worn out 😬 My cat scratched it a couple times, added the beauty 😂😂😂 I love this mat, it’s not slippery and doesn’t smells like chemicals. I’ll keep to use it until it torn apart or I have extra money to get a new one 😜
I feel that I need to vent once in awhile, and today is one of those days…
It’s day 13th of my cycle. I felt great this morning. I went to an animal hospital to get my cat vaccinated. I carried him in his pet backpack. He was a little upset but he seemed enjoying the trip. I took a taxi to go to the vet and took a bus home. I felt just fine until I have arrived home.
I feel lower back pain again. Seriously? It’s day 13! Why don’t you leave me alone, Adeno?! 😖
Until yesterday I still felt back pain and slight cramps. I thought I will be free today because I have passed my ovulation day, but then the pain sneaked back in! 😭😭😭
Guess what? I will have my next period in 12 days. It means I might have 11 pain free days in a month. I have more painful days than pain free days. I’m trying to be positive all the time, but there are times when I feel tired with all of this pain. I just want to scream and cry! 😭😭😭
Another cat hot water bag! 😁
I need to replace my old cat hot water bag, so I got this one. Slightly bigger and softer.
I always have cramps and lower back pain on my period, so I need two water bag to relieve the pain. One for my lower back and one for my abdomen.
I have a big smile on my face because my pain is light today.
I love to feel the heat on my lower back and abdomen. It’s kinda distract my brain from the pain. I usually recharge the bag every 3 hours. The bag will keep warm until 5-6 hours, but it’s not hot enough for me 😬😬😬
I think I’m kinda addicted to the heat to relieve the pain. Before I use the electric bag, I used to use the one where you need to boil the water manually in a kettle. I burnt my lower back almost every month. Seriously, it left blister!
I’m glad I switched to the electric type, it’s much safer. 😊😊😊
