Yes, well, I slept until 6:07 and wanted to sleep even longer--it took me over an hour to get to sleep after I went back to bed. Grrrr.
The reason is mostly that darn leg pain. The same pain that drove me to vow to lose weight one last time has returned in the past few weeks. It hurts mostly when I sit on a hard surface, and it feels like pinched nerve. But lately it has been hurting in the car and most esepcially when I'm in bed. I can't sleep pn my left side at all, and I'm a migrating sleeper, switching frfrom back to right to left all night long.
I did the "seated hip opener" yoga yesterday morning and the pain held off a lot longer. Yesterday we took our grandson to Matanuska Glacier, which is a medium-long walk to get to, or at least so I remembered from my old days. The path keeps changing over the years, of course, with weather and the glacier, and we took the wrong path at first and had to re-trace out steps. But we were determined to to get GS out there, because he's 12 and this was something he really seemed to like--and those of you who know or remember, 12-year-olds are hard to impress!! Anyway, my point was that my hip/leg/knee pain didn't even come up, even on the drive home, and I was so glad, and I think the yoga helped. But at bedtime, I went right to sleep, but when DD came home from the airport from taking her boyfriend on his flight back home, I woke up and the leg pain started playing with me. I was fine sitting up (but it hurts me now, sitting up), but when I went back to bed at 1 am it bothered me just enough to keep me awake. I finally took Ibuprofen and went right to sleep.
I've been up for a while, putting my food together for the trip to Homer. I really should get dressed and do yoga this morning or I will regret it, but I don't know if I have the time. Let's see if I can go do it right now.
