Not ready yet...

Happy Saturday people! I know I say this all the time, but I really love Saturday. I just think it's the best day of the week. Boston weather today.... 11°F Real Feel® -10°F Brrrrrrr! Too cold!

I woke up this morning and for some reason in my head I started to think...I'm going to jump out of bed and my hip is going to be miraculously healed, there will be no pain damn it. Well, unfortunately that's not exactly the case. Better though. I notice that I can get out of bed in the morning and put weight on my leg and walk without wanting to cry. That's good right??? This is just a slow healing injury but since I have taken the last 5 days off (ugh!) I notice a marked improvement. We're getting there. I wish I had done this sooner rather than trying to work through it. But at least I'm doing the right thing now. It's just not ready yet. Have to keep repeating that word in my head...Patience.

Today? Today I really have to urge to put yoga clothes on and head to my Bikram studio for a nice Hannane class. It's like I have the angel and devil on my shoulders. The angel is saying...Your hip is still healing; you are doing the right thing and resting it. You have taken steps forward in the healing process and don't want to take steps backward at this point. The Devil? He's saying.... Oh, just go you wimp! You haven't been to yoga since last Sunday...Almost a week! You'll be fine. Just go.

Hmmm....Whom should I listen to? I know, I know. I should be smart about it and not head back yet. It's hard though! Don't you guy's find the less you workout the less energy you have. I feel like a slug today and just know a good Bikram class would take care of that. Oh well, soon enough I suppose. I'll just need to find another way to pump up my energy! 

I did some easy yoga postures to loosen up this morning. Just had to stay away from any postures that use or stretch the hip. Ever notice how many postures use the hip? ALOT! Anyway, what I could do felt good.

Hope you all have a great Saturday. If you practice Bikram today enjoy some postures for me, okay? Typical Saturday chores and errands to do and then I'm looking forward to a fun girls night tonight! Bundle up out there!

Cheers all! Traci
