Wednesday Weigh-in - 173.0

Weight is up a bit, but that's OK. I was not eating well, and I am doing BETTER at that and that's what's important. Focusing on the health of my body more than the number on the scale right now.

On Sunday I got up and my right hip was REALLY sore. I went through a horrible time in 2010 when I hurt my hip. I even did physical therapy for several months but it still hurt almost all the time. So I was having flashbacks and thinking the worst. But thankfully, I had a chiropractor appt AND a 90 minute massage scheduled for Monday. I LOVE my chiro, he is just amazing. He would do a few things, then have me check it, it was still hurting, so he adjusted some more. A couple of times I felt like he was using my leg as a wishbone! Putting constant pressure on a couple of points was not pleasant at the time, but it felt so much better when I walked out of there. Then the massage! She did some great deep tissue on the hip, too. When I got up yesterday, I barely felt a twinge and I couldn't help but marvel at the difference between this time and back in 2010. So, again, I'm really, really, REALLY thankful for the best chiropractor EVER!

Last night I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike and no pain in the hip. Yay! About to do the bike again for my exercise today. Will do my yoga stretching, too. The DVD I've been doing has the same stretch for the hip that I did in physical therapy.

What yoga DVD do you use? Could someone that has never taken a class in person catch onto it?

Whew! Glad you were able to work out the hip problem!

Jessica, it's actually a video that McDonald's gave out when they first started selling salads. You got a salad, a bottle of water, and a workout video! So it's REALLY old. My daughter had used it quite a bit and when my doctor recommended yoga, I stole it from her. :-) I've never taken a class, so I had to watch it first to figure out what the moves were since she didn't exactly say what to do when she was doing it, but I picked it up quickly. I think if you find a beginner's yoga dvd or even a free program on TV, just watch it first to get the poses.
