I didn’t see a December thread so started us off, hope that’s okay. I stole Pat’s excellent intro from last month.

ETA Vantreesta, I haven’t used Insight Timer for ages so I can’t answer your question, but I’m sure someone else may be able to.

Hi,

I'm going to try to start checking back in. I have been exercising but not posting. I'll start with today's workout:

Jessica Smith Get Strong DVD "Strictly Strength" workout (bought this off VF Roost and finally tried it. I found it challenging)

Yoga Upload-20 minute restorative program with a bolster (you tube)

20 minute outdoor walk

I'm not really chatty yet, but I'll try This month is extra difficult for me. I hope everyone has been doing well.

Thanks, Pam. I haven't found it yet but I've also had two long days on the road so haven't had much time to look more!

I went for a 2 mile neighborhood walk this morning.

Beth, it helps me to do CS more regularly if I do the episodes that I enjoy the most so I have marked those with a "star" next to the favorite episode. Yeah, I need to fight stiff old lady syndrome too.

Pam, enjoy your visit with DS2 at Salt Spring Island!

I'm waving to everyone!

Good morning everyone! Yesterday was a bust. Started out very well with a nice meditation and yoga, but then I faded fast. Just YWK Morning Yoga Movement Day 5 - Best Yoga to Wake Up plus 5,000 steps.

Tonight is my office Christmas party. I'm looking forward to arriving home from it, LOL.

Thank you for starting our December check-in, Pam.

Hi Sherry, welcome back! I can imagine this is a very sad time of year for you. Good luck sorting out what will work best for you and your son.

Beth, what a bummer about your glute flaring up. A friend on another check-in has been using Annie's Pilates Physical Therapist on YT and it seems that she's got lots of very helpful routines. I'm going to explore her channel soon.

Good morning Sandra, Paine, and all who visit!

Pat/Paine - yeah, my glute/hip issue seems to be chronic, similar to Pam. It's not exactly painful and doesn't prevent me from exercising or doing anything else, but it tend to bother me more towards the end of the day. The band workout I linked to was with Annie Pilates PT.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I finished the Human 2.0 30-day movement challenge that I had been doing; I did all 30 days, although some days I did 2, some none. Some of the days felt really good, others were more "meh." I'm going to try to do Katy Bowman's exercise advent calendar this month. I did Day 1 yesterday; she hasn't yet posted Day 2, but here's the link:
