My mom’s cancer this time feels different. I am not sure I worry any more or any less — but watching a parent go through cancer affects you differently as an adult than as a child. I often relive the fear and concern I had as a child, watching my mom and family experience cancer and all the things that go with it: hair loss, doctors appointments, missing activities because she isn’t feeling well, and the overall fatigue that takes over her body.
As someone who suffers from depression and anxiety, I have started to identify my triggers. And mine are the “should haves.”
Another year of A to Z. And for me, a challenge within a challenge — to find, try, and write about an exercise for each letter of the alphabet (or in my case, some letters had several exercises).
It’s April 30 and that means it is the last day of the A to Z Challenge! “Z” brings us to Zumba!
I really didn’t think I would find anything for X. And then I found X-Jacks.
I chose walking to highlight for me “W” exercise, because not only is it universal, but it is a great way to control your pace and place.
The letter “V” brings three very lucky exercises: V-ups, vertical mountain climbers, and vertical swing.
We are entering the part of the alphabet where things can get a bit creative, to say the least. But thankfully I found decent “U’s” to keep me busy for this post. Without further ado, let’s uncover upper cuts, upper back stretch, upper back-leg grab, and upward stretch.
Today’s exercise is highlighting the good ol’ treadmill. Straightforward yet timeless.
