      Yesterday was 100 swings and 3k steps

      I took another "off" day.

      Did my yoga.

      Did my ironborn back/biceps day w 15lbs. But shrugs instead of carries bc that is light.

          THIS...so relatable. I have to make myself get up and move because I really absolutely have no desire to. Kudos for the effort you put in, I know its a struggle

            There is quite a bit of controversy in the yoga world over hero pose. Some folks are in love with it, "Hero pose is so awesome! Everyone should learn to love it!" etc. Others shout, "OMG! Hero pose is horrible for your knees! No one should ever do hero pose!" I personally am more in love with my knees than with any specific yoga pose, and there is no functional value I can see in bending my knees at such an extreme angle. So I always substitute thunderbolt pose for hero, and in place of reclined hero I do half reclined thunderbolt half bridge.

              I'm with Rainbow Dragon regarding hero pose - I do thunderbold pose instead to protect my knees. In aikido, we call it seiza and it's the default for sitting and listening to explanations. It stretches your ankles a lot, and it fixed my back issues that were caused by sitting with a hunched back (seiza forces you to sit upright).

                My joints are hypermobile...no issue with hero pose...I used to always get yelled at for W sitting as a kid, but it was my most comfy way to sit! I think my joint hypermibility helps to a degree with my yoga, but I know I gotta be careful with my spine & hip issues

                  I also do the thunderbold pose. I didn't even know there was a specific name for what I was doing!

                    Me too; and neither did I. I opt for this frequently instead of cross legged as “a comfortable seat of my choice” to start.

                      Thank you Rainbow Dragon ! That is such a "basic" pose I didn't even think to look for an alternative and sleep_twitch CODawn DorothyMH I am glad I am not the only one... also interesting to know the opposite "issue" is a thing as well MissMolly

                      and Trbrat75 it is somewhat comforting to know I am not the only one in this shitty mindset.

                      I am really in some anxiety/ennui pit. If the world were not going batshit atm I would be calling a dr about it but....looking at things.... being really fucking frightened is actually not an illogical response to what's going on. As long as I keep up w the baseline basics (check work email daily so I know when to go back, fill unemployment weekly, pay bills, get some daily movement, wash face/brush teeth, care for cats, cook for hubby and I) I am not going to worry about it. If I am still in this state when things normalize I'll see a dr.


                      IRONBORN- legs w 15lbs then abs, but I can't do v ups so did boat folds.

                      Yoga day 10

                      Restarted w2r bc I took a long break and I needed to start on a win. This 30 day program might be like the 30 day French program that took me 6 months of restarts >.>.

                        I went through a really bad time mid-March through mid-April. I was doing the bare minimum (walking , 4 minutes of supine twists). I just didn't care, which is weird because in past times of anxiety\depression, working out was my coping mechanism. But these are different times. Hang in there.

                          I have some strange mood swings as well, some days I'm extremely irritable, some days I suddenly feel like crying for no reason. Cuddling grandpa cat helps me a lot.

                            I think we all are struggling. I'm finding myself craving old things...like diet mtn dew (that I gave up 5 months ago) and alcohol which I rarely consume...both are old coping mechanisms. I'm also finding water not as satisfying and the irritability struggles on top of anxiety just downright suck. Sometimes I bake, sometimes I workout, sometimes I walk, sometimes I just veg out and medicate to try to escape....hang in there my friend!

                              I join the crew of people with mood swings and just trying to cope. I'm glad I've come to hate shopping so much that I want to get it done as quickly as possible, otherwise I wouldn't skip the sweets aisle and would be back to consuming ridiculous amounts of sugar.

                                CODawn sleep_twitch MissMolly Mianevem ... the fact so many other strong women are in the same anxious/irritable/depressed place tells me I am definitely right about this being situational and not some new development that requires a drs apt (altho trust me, if I do not go back to my normal "midling anxious but able to manage self w the very occasional Xanax" after this I'll go).

                                My poor cat is getting pretty sick of me scooping her up and kissing the top of her head, but, hasn't started hissing abt it yet so whatever.

                                yesterday had 4k steps and 0 swings
