This "chick" is concerned with "clicks." (I'm long over "cliques" and refuse to recognize anything that resembles a "clique.")
But as to clicks---well, I've gotten clickier and clickier.
I wake up. I walk down the hall and hear (and feel) my ankle click with each step.
My shoulder joins in--click!
My knee will sometimes--pop!
And you've already heard me moan about my shin splints--achy.
I've gotten clickier as I've gotten more active. I am getting sorer and sorer from working my body.
I'm just not used to it. My mind? yes, used to that. My legs? No. This is new....
So I'm working on helping the discomfort. And the clicking noises that come along with it.
My new arsenal:
And I do these two things in the morning:
I wake up, bless and embrace the day, and then
- Stretch arms straight out, making a little "t" with my body. Hooooold....
- Then stretch one arm straight across my chest, joining the arm on the other side. Pull that arm over even further by folding up the arm at the elbow. Hooooold.....
- Now the other side.
- Onto those over worked legs. First, I bend one leg up, bringing my knee way up to my chest, holding with my hands. Hoooooold.
- Now the other leg.
- Finally I bend my legs and drop them open, bottoms of the feet touching. It's kinda like the goddess pose, opening your hips.
But I'm telling you--I'm less clicky when I walk down the hall!
Once I'm up and at 'em, I'm taking 2 Osteo Bi-Flex with my breakfast. I'm currently loving and living on that yogurt recipe I shared yesterday. (These days Daughter has grits, and Hubs has Lucky Charms.)
Yogurt and Yoga and Dr. Teal and Bi-Flex. Sounds like a clique to me....
