So, my plan is to do yoga in 2015.
Looking back at past Project Life albums, it seems that I made this statement in January more than once. But that doesn't mean I cannot give it a shot once again!
And looking at the photo above, I clearly need to gain more tone in my shoulders!
Over the past several years I have been suffering from lower back pain in my sacrum. I cannot put my finger on what caused it or exactly when it started. But I did have a severely torn hamstring incident way back in 2010 and it seems that this issue followed that injury.
The intensity has ranged from not being able to bend over to put my leg in my pants to tension from my right hip all the way up into my head. I have visited the chiropractor and massage therapist monthly. I have had several sessions with an acupuncturist. But even after all that, the issue persisted. I tried my own remedies of stretching, taking Ibuprophen, regularly rolling on a foam roller or tennis ball and using a heated wheat bag to manage the discomfort.
Not meaning to complain, I tell you this simply to say that there were many more days this past year that I was unable to do yoga than there were days I was able to do yoga. That is life.
However, recently (after a sudden and strange cracking of my left hip) things seem to have somewhat sorted themselves out and I have been experiencing a drastic reduction in discomfort.
So I am hopeful.
Wanting to tap in to my OLW less, I am telling myself this year to make less excuses for not doing yoga. (I realize that is not exactly grammatically correct, but you get what I am after, right?)
So I am starting yoga again...
