Saturday, June 30th Workout - Full Body Yoga Workout and Stretch Plus Some Workout Stuff


My day started with a massive fibro pain flare (thanks to both the weather and my food choices yesterday... the culprit was sugar alcohols and not carbs!) and ended with enough pain tolerance to attempt my old yoga routine (in it's new order and sequence which, honesty, flows much, much better!) and it felt amazing!

I feel like I used muscles I forgot I had (my thighs were shaking so hard during the warriors and lunges) and my back feels great! I definitely need to make this a regular routine again!

And doing this tonight made me realize how much I love my own workouts and how much I want to keep doing them instead of the Lauren Gleisberg ones (although I get some great ideas from hers) so I'm going to go through tonight and modify my own workout based on the modifications Nola and I talked about for the LG one last Tuesday. There's some changes I wanted to make to my workout anyway so this is the best time to tackle it.

I also narrowed it down to what exercise pushed my back too far during the workout last Monday so that's being removed for now and replaced with something else.

But in general, I feel amazing now (despite the somewhat lingering pain and nausea which I guess is also part of fibro flares, just not one I often experience) and I'll definitely be working out tomorrow even if it's only yoga again!
