Milestones and Foam Rollers and LaCrosse Balls...oh my!
This week we are back at our routine...me and Tasmanian Devil Girl. Truthfully, she's more tired and sore than me, probably because she skipped out on one too many classes during the holidays and I didn't. I've jumped back in full throttle with my Paleo eating...I sort of derailed myself during the holidays. I also hit a major milestone this week, six whole months without a Dr. Pepper. Now that's something I thought I'd never say! I do have a confession to make, I've been cheating on my acupuncturist with the chiropractor. I have to say that both are great for repairing all the damage I do to my neck and shoulder sitting at a desk all day...yes I said it...sitting at a desk all day. As rough and tumble as Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu are, sitting at a desk all day not moving is way more damaging to your body. So, this new chiropractor is giving me tons and tons of good stretching exercises to do. It's all great stuff, who knew the things you could do with a foam roller and a LaCrosse ball. My neck and shoulders are going to feel like a million bucks folks, and if you thought they were flexible before, look out! I'm looking forward to training tonight and then we are going to start a new jiu jitsu conditioning class after our regular class. Working on the re-creation of Mrs. Ibarra begins....NOW! :)
