I'm not naming this blog 'bootcamp day 5' even though I did my video and 30 minutes of cardio plus various stretches, crunches, push-ups and such.
This afternoon I went to my first ever acupuncture appointment. It really was the highlight of my day and I can't stop talking about it. Reason for me finally deciding to let someone needle me ;-) was the fact that I have been in quite a bit of pain for weeks now.
Sometime before Christmas I woke up with a 'crick in my neck', stiff shoulders and an achy back. Oh well, I thought, it will pass... but it did not. So I went to see my chiropractor; this usually does the trick. But not so this time. After four visits to my chiropractor without any results I decided that it was time to try another treatment.
Since I'll try anything before I visit an MD, I decided I should give acupuncture a try. And boy, am I ever amazed! Even though my neck is still tight and so are my shoulders and my back, there is no pain right now! GONE!
After weeks of being in pain this is such a weird feeling. I'm very weary and am worried I'll make one wrong move and the pain will be back. Well, I'm taking it an hour at a time right now; will see what the situation is in the morning.
I will go back for another treatment next week and am very hopeful that this is the answer to my problem.
Time to sign off, I'm determined to catch the second hour of NCIS tonight. Was still at the gym during the first half of the first hour, so I thought I'll finish my blog before the top of the hour.
Good night all.
