I slept in a little late today and then was pretty lazy. I decided it was time to do something. My hips have been feeling better. They still have a little pain when I sit for too long, but I decided they don’t burn.
I gave P90X Yoga X a try…boy was this tough! I couldn’t do all the moves, but I did my best. Once I got towards the second half, I was so … [Continue reading]
