Movement One and Two

I decided to join the "movement" over at 2nd Cup even though I may have been officially too late to get in on the action. So beginning on Thursday, I decided to move my "Ahem" for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week....and to my immense's for only two weeks. So at the end of two weeks, I shall reevaluate my insanity and see if I can tolerate such activity. Since it has been officially Spring Break for me for the last 4 days, I've been celebrating with such activities as shopping, cleaning closets, shopping, visiting with a friend, shopping, studying, shopping. Well, you get the picture. So my first attempt at shhhh!! exercise was to walk around the store in these for half an hour.
Really! I did! Don't you think that should count for the first thirty minutes of movement???

Okay. I didn't either. Although, my calves thought it counted. And so did my lower back later that evening. But in order to wholeheartedly participate, I went for a brisk walk around the neighborhood later in the evening. Thirty minutes. My broken finger was aching dreadfully from the cold.

Then, this morning, I did 30 minutes of Yoga -- well about 20 minutes of Yoga with 10 minutes of Callanetics thrown in for good measure. (and if you think I took a picture of me doing Yoga, you're crazier than I am!) It's all my poor body would take after the 5 inch stilettos. By the way, I did buy them!!! Yep. Those are some killer shoes--and I bought them! Please remember that I'm nearly a senior citizen. Surely that buys me a bit of sympathy. No????

So after the session this morning, I wore these today.
Nothing like my beloved Crocs to rest my permanently 5 inch arched feet. I kept a sharp lookout for Clinton and Stacey today because I surely didn't want to be caught out in my Crocs. No way are my comfy shoes going into the garbage.

I'm trying to figure out what movement I shall attempt tomorrow without offending either my arches, my lower back or my the rest of my muscles which are complaining about the workout today. Does a BM count as movement???? Although I might put other parts of my body in distress if I tried an entire thirty minutes at BM "movement."

Maybe Pilates tomorrow. I could dust off one of those balls and maybe I won't break my neck!!

I am so glad you're jumping on the bandwagon! Yes, those are killer shoes in more ways than one. I hope you enjoy this effort, or at least feel physically better after two weeks. That's what I'm hoping for!
