Legs say no way…not sleeping going to hurt…

All night long my legs screamed and hurt and stung and tingled and wiggled and stretched and … well did I say hurt? So today is not going to be a push it day. I will go for a walk this morning, later on cuz I don’t have anyone this morning so a nice morning to just take it ease. And tonight is Venture Crew Scouts and we’re going mini golfing so a slow and easy evening but still no sitting on butt doing nothing.

I have learned from last year that when my legs scream QUIT!! I do. I have to cuz I am not going to be in pain and laid up for months just because my brain says don’t listen to them, get off your behinder and move. Not this time.

So I am thinking today is a good day for those fish flopping exercises. You know the plain old regular leg lifts, crunches, squats, plants and more. In fact I am thinking before I finish dressing would be a good time to do that so really that means NOW!

I better go and do it before I change my mind and think of something else I should be doing just so I don’t have to do them. Take care my friends and have a blessed day.

Of course I have to leave you with a picture. Ain’t love grand!!

Such a sweet picture! I'm glad you're listening to your body! We stubborn people do eventually learn our lessons, don't we? LOL

Listen, listen, listen. great advice and you are doing it.

Are you stretching? Have your tried some light yoga. May legs will yell at me when they start to get to tight and they remind me to stretch.
