    Elastigirl's Exciting Endeavors

    Well today was interesting. I was doing my workout, and I went to do the shoulder stand, and somehow did a flip and landed on my back. Just lay there dazed for a moment, then sat up, to see if I'd injured anything seriously. My back is sore, and my butt is sore, but I don't think I did anything serious. I took Arnica and Advil, and pretty much took it easy most of the day. threw some pork in the Instapot, and sweet potatoes in the oven. It's been 5 hours since my Advil, and I'm not in too much pain, so hopefully it's something that heals quick. I'll have to post on the GMB forums and figure out what I did to make myself flip. @@mu Have you ever done that? Any idea how I did?

    I have a friend who if you hum a song he will automatically start whistling. It's fun to get weird turns in his head.

    See answer below I agree. Hatter, I think in most places seasons are counted in moths, not days. Seemed like one day you were enjoying the fall leaves, and the next you said all the trees were bare.

    Mint and Dill and Cumin: Tanktimus Fights his Legalism

    We are Rangers, and Rangers love to change it up. Bodyweight workouts are great, and kettlebells are amazing. Sounds like right now working out at home is a great fit for you. Maybe not having it be such a time drain, you will rekindle some enthusiasm for working out

    I love the show America Ninja Warrior. I follow several of them on Instagram. Their agility and strength always motivates me

    jstanlick explores new health horizons

    I hear you on DST messing with sleep. I'm consistently waking up early, no matter what time I go to sleep. Sorry about the diabetes frustrations. You are working on your health though, and you will figure it out. Have you tried a combo of something like HIIT and walking? Maybe you could do a less grueling HIIT workout if you did some low intensity right after? Another thought to explore was that I read somewhere (sorry not sure where) that there is a small percentage of adults who get Diabetes 1 as an adult. Not sure if treating that would be any different, if you thought maybe you had it, but just thought I'd mention it

    Great progress. . Good call on working on form more and getting it down before you move up

    Funny story: After we vacationed in Hawaii, my friend was asking me what the weather was like. I said it was sunny and gorgeous. She replied that she had other friends who had also just visited and they said it rained every day. I thought I moment and said, "Well now that you mention it , it did rain every day.But, except for one time, it was just a brief 5 minute rain shower to settle the dust and cool everything down and then the sun came out" So I guess it all depends on your outlook. Next NF meet up in Hawaii! Maybe what we need is just for the world to shift temporarily on it's axis , so for one year we all experience different climates, and then it rotates back.

    Xena goes for a run

    I'm just learning that I am not as energetic in the winter as I am in the summer and spring. Instead of fighting it, I just let myself take it down a notch, and then when spring comes around , with sunnier and longer days, I find my energy just naturally picks up

    I was thinking more like Hawaii. Sunny and warm, with an occasional ocean breeze to cool you off
