Monday (Day 1) Overview

So, we all know that yesterday was...well, a Pain In The A$$. Literally, my sciatic pain was so bad, and I can't figure out what the trigger was. But I decided to go to Yoga, and that was the best decision of the day. Have I told you how much I LOVE Yoga?  LOVE IT!!! There was a lot of moves and positions that I had to modify to keep the pressure off my lower back/hips/butt. But, it really helped loosen me up. I know it wasn't smart, but I did get into a crow arm balance. I was so proud of myself. Then I tried standing, and realized I should have probably waited for another day to try that one. Denise, the Yoga instructor spent some time after class stretching me out, and showing me a few stretches that should help. She's really an amazing woman.Here's a link to her blog; http://myheart2yoursyoga.blogspot.com/  It's amazing because she's been through so much, and I feel that I can understand what she's been through. I've felt it. I just love her, and I'm honored to take classes under her.

Calories Consumed - 1485
Calories Burned - 560

Yes, I was at the top of my caloric intake, but it was so hard NOT to snack!!!! ugh!
And I went for that short jog that really made my sciatic hurt, and then Yoga, so that's why my Calories burned was so high.
