Hi everybody! Just thought I'd check in with a little update. I am still seeing the chiropractor way more than my wallet and I would like, but it does seem to be helping. I have been off the Aleve for going on 5 days with occasional discomfort rather than true pain. This is HUGE progress. I am still not able to swing the KB which is frustrating. This is giving a friend of mine a chance to borrow my 20 lb bell, though - and it being out of the house reduces the temptation. I am smart enough not to try the heavier ones, but I know my Blue Radley would be a temptation!
No running yet, either, although I am walking on the treadmill most days and doing yoga. My eating is still not where it should be, but it isn't as bad as it has been for the past few months. I'm gonna call that progress and hope for a better day tomorrow.
I was looking back at some pictures from the summer. It is frustrating to see just how far gone I am, but at the same time I know that I CAN get back in shape. My big goal is being ready for a trip to Hawaii in March, but I have to resist the urge to work hard before my back is healed.
I know, I know, getting my eating under control wouldn't strain my back one bit. I keep telling that to myself but I apparently haven't been listening too well.
Thanks for your support, my SP friends!
