Well the backache is better - not terrific, but better. I've started doing some lower back stretches, talked with my chiropractor first of course. And I've put in quite a bit of time walking. Well tonight my hubby & I went to NorthPark mall and walked for about an hour! He needs to get more exercise to help his blood sugar, so I was quite happy that he went with me. Otherwise I'd have been on the treadmill, probably good to give that a rest! I go back to the chiropractor tomorrow morning, hopefully for the last time, and will add a few Pilates exercises over the next week or so. That should help!

So my goals for July were to get 30 - 45 minutes of cardio 5 days a week, and do some serious ab work 3 days a week. Unfortunately, I am recovering from another serious & painful back injury. No idea how it happened, but Wednesday I was in so much pain I braved a chiropractor. I saw him Thursday as well, and thought I was better, but wouldn't you know it Friday I felt even worse, and naturally he was closed. Saw him again yesterday, and am feeling a little better today. This is going to cause me some problems with my goals, BUT I can still walk on the treadmill. In fact, I can do that every day, and for as long as I want, so until my back gets better that's what I will do.

So, this is going to sound like complaining, and it kind of is. Here is a picture of Ms. Indiana, who is being touted as having a "normal" figure:
Okay, I appreciate the fact that she's not rail thin, and looks pretty healthy, BUT the article describes her as being 5'8" and wearing a size 4! It then states that the "average" woman is about 5'3" and wears a size 12 - 14! Now I'm about 5'3" and currently wear in the size 10 - 12 range; my personal ideal would be a size 8. So my personal ideal is still considerably bigger than this woman's, and in fact I'd probably still outweigh her! So I'd come closer to calling her "MORE Normal," but maybe I'm just being petty here. What does anyone else think?
