Week 2 - Day 4

Good god, I'm sore today. I figured Cindy was going to come back and kick me in the ass, but I'm still never quite prepared. Oh, I'm so happy to be crossfitting again! Today was a "day off", even though I'm going biking later and did yoga at lunch. My back has felt REALLY good today. I think I'm finally getting past the hard part. I've been working really hard on my hip and hamstring flexibility and I think it's starting to pay off. I've created an excellent yoga routine to really stretch out the hips:

Forward fold
Repeat 3x:
Lunge (right foot)
Twisted lunge
Inside reach in lunge (?)
Downward dog
Lunge (left foot)
Twisted lunge
Inside reach in lunge
Downward dog
Repeat 2x or more:
Child pose (or downward dog)
Half warrior (repeat with child pose in other side)
Seated bound angle
Repeat 2x on each side:
Side seated angle
Revolved head to knee
Prayer Squat
Forward fold
Five pointed star
Standing yoga mudra
Standing angle
Goddess pose
Forward fold
Downward dog
Cat/cow stretch
Repeat at least 2x:
Double pigeon (both sides)
Knee cross twist (both sides)

At this point I like to repeat any previous poses that seemed tight to see if I can get deeper. It has been amazing the results I've had just in a few days.

Breakfast: 1 cup Kashi, 1 cup soy milk, 1/2 cup egg beaters
Snack: Yoplait, 1/2 cup CC
Lunch: 1/2 can tuna, 1/4 orange bell pepper, 1/2 tomato, 2 tbsp Cheese Fantastico, banana
Snack: Zone bar

Weight is down to 154. Finally losing some pounds!
