I did the 15 Minute routine again this morning. My legs and hips feel so sore. The routine took about 25 minutes this time. I imagine it flows more smoothly the longer you practice it. I found a few of the moves online, but not all of them. I can't find that Teresa Tapp even has a DVD available with just the 15 Minute routine on it. Seems strange that that wouldn't be available.

I had the Paragard copper IUD inserted today and I feel very strange. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the most comfortable experience, either. I have some mild cramping now, which is supposed to last up to a week. It was a strange experience - I found myself upset that I was alone getting it done. Versus having a loved one like Steve with me. But its not like we have anywhere for Ellen to be while doing something like this. Talk about taking one for the team.
