            Sunday September 11th : Day 17 of Foundation, level 1.
            Steps : 11493
            Daily dare : Done with EC - in position A, I guess. As a few others mentioned, I could get to position B if I want, but to hold it properly 3 mins? Probably not.
            Interesting observation : my left ankle started feeling incomfortable so I tried to slightly shift the foot in or outwards, then shift the weight a bit more right - no dice. But then I did a mental control of my posture and did the good old "suck your guts in and your ass in" (i.e. a sort of rotation of the pelvis so that glutes are tight and abs in), and suddently my ankle was fine. I did not think it'd have an effect on alignment (since only left ankle hurt), but guess a slacker posture somehow twisted or put more weight on the left foot. Every day you learn something

            ETA : I had a nice compliment today - I had not seen my parents in about 6 weeks, and we got to meet for a belated birthday lunch (Morrocan - yum...), and my mom looked over at me as only a mom can and said, "Hmm, looks like you lost some weight" . See, I adore my mom, she adores me too, and I am fully aware she is a bit tight with complimenting me on the physical side (her love expresses itself in different ways). So, yay! Apparently, something like a dozen of days of Hero's Journey, and 17 days of Foundation, level 1, CAN make a difference!

                Tuesday Sept 13th : Day 19th of foundation Level 1, 8,476 steps (couldn't reach the 10K because of a forced detour to buy a heavy bag of cat litter, so I had to take the subway to my closest station, instead of leaving it earlier as I usually do), and Daily dare with EC. As I mentioned on the DD thread, I hope my form was correct... At least I tried.

                Oh, in the Foundation workout, I discovered doing the inclined slow climbers. Interesting new exercise! I remember seeing the climbers in the Hero's Journey workout, and being overwhelmed - this one is doable. Step by step, this wolf learns

                  Wednesday Sept 14th: Day 20 of Foundation level 1, that bit of stretching was hard on the arms, I switched the order of the exercises so that the two arm exercises (the upward dog stretch and the plank step-ins ) were separated by the superman stretches. Not ideal, but ... my arms were calling me names.
                  I did the daily dare - with extra credit, and 10,635 steps. 0)
                  Tomorrow is gonna be a long day - meeting, and concert in the evening (I rarely go out during the week, but this particular concert really attracted me)

                      Your daily walk is a major upgrade to mine! Ah! So wonderful!

                        Thanks KaseyRose03 , I started that around February, and kept pretty well to it. My "off" day can be Saturday for practical reasons (when I work, I leave the subway a few stations before mine to get my step count, and on Sundays I walk to my congregation, but Saturdays are not so well structured). If you do already 5,000, that's more than lots of folks so don't sell yourself short And with Chicago, you gotta count with the winter wind... I lived there 1 year 1/2, liked it a lot, but outside walking when it got really cold? Uh... No thanks, my lungs will pass this opportunity ! I lived in Buffalo NY a few years too, and it was snowy, but definitly less cold - I used to have a good long walk to work, and that was OK.


                        Today, 7,246 steps (did a long walkaround for my grocery run to still have some steps, LOL), Foundation day 23 Level , and Daily dare with EC - I surprised myself with the EC.

                          Today 10,278 steps, Daily dare with EC, and Foundation Day 24 level - stretching day so fairly easy and very enjoyable.

                          I am now pondering post-Foundation. I will be doing the 7-days yoga challenge, but after... I hesitate between 90 days of action, which sems a nice and complete one, or do total abs and then 30 days of gravity, to target both the upper-body-planks and the abs challenges... Any suggestions between those two schemes?

                            You can do total abs with any other program. I totally enjoyed gravity.

                              Hmm, Gee , you are giving me ideas with 90 days + other program in parallel. If the workout doesn't become too long, of course ... I exercise generally right after waking up (cleaning my face, putting the kettle over the fire, feeding my darling cat the dry food portion of her breakfast, and opening all windows for air - OK, now you all know my morning routine ), I already wake up fairly early , and do not want to leave home later to avoid getting in the morning rush in Paris subway... Guess we will see.

                              Sooo, today, Foundation day 25 Level 1, did the Daily dare with EC - and got a nice shoulder burn , and did 10,099 steps. Good day, good start of week.
