Ok…I got up this morning to work out and I think I should get a medal or something for the ‘Lamest Workout Ever!’.
Is there an award for that?
There should be.
My back is still hurting…but, I think I should also get some points for getting up and trying to not only create the habit but for doing something.
It’s funny, I don’t even know what I did to my back. Have you ever done that? Hurt yourself and not even know how?
This is not normal for me. I never have back problems…weird.
But, I got up this morning. Stretched a little and did a ‘tiny’ bit of Pilates.
Where’s my award?
Hopefully it will be in the form of relief when my back starts to feel better!
I’m still out of commission, plagued with my bad back.
The pain is overwhelming so I’m trying not to move too much, but this is the fourth day!
Problem is, I really want to go for a walk, however, the last thing I want to do is make it worse.
I’ve decided to give myself today to rest it, pain reliever and heating pad.
Tomorrow…ready or not…I’m back to Pilates and walking.
It might be just a tiny bit at first, more stretching than working, but nonetheless, I’m going to get this back better one way or another.
After all, I’m not going to lose weight, get heathy or be ready for Machu Picchu sitting in bed!
Happy Earth Day!
Let’s all do our part to save it!
I have done something severe to my back.
I have been laid up since yesterday, having to move slowly with definitive motion.
I don’t seem to be able to sit down, lay down or be propped up.
Not sure what I did to myself but I hope it goes away as quickly as it came upon me.
If anyone knows of a great way to relieve excruciating lower back pain and spasms, please feel free to share.
Have an awesome, pain-free day!
Happy Easter to you all!
Have a wonderful day…and remember, not too much candy!
I’m off to hide baskets, make deviled eggs, and play nice with the ‘family.’
I hide yours too….Do the maze and see if you can find it! LOL!
I need a new view.
Any of these will do nicely.
My no sugar vigil didn’t last too long.
Yesterday I was weak and had two jellybeans.
Ugh! Why did I have to start this at Easter?
I’m back on it…I must not give in.
In my defense, I went for a walk yesterday morning for an hour and another 40 minutes in the evening…post jellybeans.
My walk this morning almost didn’t happen.
I went to bed late (my fault) and got up early.
Still dark out, I struggled to get up….and I do mean struggled.
I practically rolled myself out of bed. The only reason I got to my feet was because I didn’t want to fall on the floor.
Finally, droopy eyed and sleep walking I got dressed and out the door.
I feel really good about walking for an hour on this cool, crisp morning.
It was still dark out for the walk, so no pictures.
But trust me…it was gorgeous.
I’m awake now!
My morning walk today was really quite beautiful.
A warm breeze blowing.
The smell of blooming jasmine and roses in the air.
Birds flying by, chirping away.
The peace and quiet of a lovely walk.
Only me, my thoughts and the beauty around me.
Take a look!
I hope you enjoy.
This one made me laugh!
Why is it that far too often a day off isn’t a day off?
We have errands to run, laundry, grocery shopping etc…etc…etc.
I want some time off!
I want to sit down and do some art.
Go somewhere beautiful to take some pictures.
And even though today is a day off. Today is not that day.
