I have been such a slug lately.  I think the weather has me in hibernation mode.  That’s my only excuse.

 

On Friday I got myself to the gym and did 2.5 miles on the track. I also worked on bench press using a Smith machine. That is my worst lift by far.

On Sunday it warmed up to 32 F. so Freckles and I went for a walk.


I’m taking an online course that incorporates some energy work.  One of the things that we are supposed to do everyday is the Five Tibetan Rites. We started doing 7 of each exercise and are adding three each week until you get to a maximum of 21.

The first one is to turn clockwise.

The second is this leg lift followed by three deep breaths with your hands on your lower abs.

The third is this chest opener that reminds me of preparation for camel pose.

The fourth is this table pose followed by three breaths.

The fifth is upward dog to downward dog.

It doesn’t take long to do these in the morning (when I remember to do them) so at least that’s a little bit of exercise in my sluggish time.
