In the past week
I’d been doing ok, but now I”m struggling. Nobody is taking anything seriously. I feel like i’m living in fear. I know so many who have been sick and more than one person who has died from it. I want to get out and move around, but I don’t feel safe. I tried just walking yesterday and got boxed in between someone else and a fence because that…[Read more]
Thanks! Ok, that’s what I’ll do. That makes a lot of sense. I’ll just ease into it. It’s funny how I needed someone else to point that out and now it all sounds so obvious. I had an all-or-nothing mindset going on.
Ok, so I was hearing all these things that say in times of stress, don’t do high impact workouts because they spike cortisol levels – the stress hormone. But I really need a fat burning workout. I need to do better than what I’m doing. I don’t know what workouts to do. Any ideas?
Pump up the tires, make sure the chain moves smoothly and is properly greased, check over your tires for damage or cracks. Check over the whole bike for visible damage. Test your brakes. Go for it. You’ll be fine.
They usually range from about 1/8 inch thick to 1/4 inch thick. It mostly depends on your knees. The thickness doesn’t matter much except when you’re in positions like crescent lunge that push your knee into the floor. You can get the thinner (and usually less expensive) kind and just fold your mat to double it under your knee in those moves or…[Read more]
I’m not sure if I’m depressed but I feel like I might be. I’m not unhappy all the time or anything but I’m not motivated to do any of the things I used to be able to push myself to do like skipping an unbelievable number of snacks and I only reach my step goal around once per week now. What do I do?
I have been doing more fitness stuff than I have in years but I am eating so much food and tons of it is junk food. What am I doing to my body? Will i be as big as a blimp when the quarantine is over? I’m eating a lot of chocolate, baked things and chips, but I go for a brisk long walk every day and I do 1 to 2 yoga sessions per day. When I do…[Read more]
I hope you’re feeling better. I don’t think you’ll be holding yourslf back or anything. Once you build up your strength again, you should be able to get back into your regular routine. As long as you ease in while you get stronger, you should be right back again.
Hang in there! Get sunlight or at least daylight when you can. The days are getting longer now and the warm weather is nearly here. YOu can get through this. Not overwhelming yourself is a good technique. The kinder you are to yourself, the better prepared your body will be to help you combat this. It’s good that you can talk about it.
I’m looking for a new yoga mat bag. I currently have a Gaiam sling bag. It’s pretty much a big soft cotton sling bag that has enough room for you to jam a yoga mat into it. It has little ties to stop it from flopping around because it stands straight up. I love my bag but it’s really lived its life and I’m ready for a new one. I want one that will…[Read more]
I’ve cracked my knuckles for probably 20 years. My hands are definitely not as strong as they used to be with grip. I can’t open the jars I used to, which makes me very frustrated.I don’t know if they’re related though or if it’s just that I’m not in my twenties anymore
Hamstrings are a common problem. I’d say just keep trying. Do your best at each of your yoga sessions. Over time, you’ll stretch and improve your reach. It’s not something you can do all right away. It’s something you’ll get as you work that part of your body regularly.
I love the way sling backpacks look compared to regular ones. It’s more of a regular everyday look instead of an academic or outdoor hiking look. But it’s only on one shoulder so is that just as bad as carrying a backpack on one shoulder or having a shoulderbag?
