8/23/10 OMG Small Stepper of the Day
Monday, August 23, 2010
Wow Thanks everyone. Not sure how this happened, but I am overwhelmed and almost extremely in tears.
I have been in a bad way lately, I have almost given up.
But not completely. Not yet. I am watching my calories, but not exercising, and that hurts. Hurts me. A few weeks back I was told by my doctor that there would be no more exercising until my back stops hurting or the constant pain goes away. Or if I can come up with exercises that I can do without it hurting. I have also found out that I have very weak abdominal muscles. Well that one took me by a big whack in the face. I have been doing crunches & ab pullups, etc. Me, weak ab muscles? How? But anyway to make it this far and have this be told to you by a doctor is enough to put the brakes on and totally throw in the towel.
I have made myself literally sick thinking about this and trying to figure out what to do. But now matter what I do my back hurts. i can't even walk. She did mention walking in water. But where I live that is $4 and hour. A little too much money to fork out right now. So I have been like giving up any hope until maybe after back surgery before I can get on track with things again.
But when I opened my email this afternoon and seen the sparkgoodies & the well wishes, it really helped open up my eyes that someone, somewhere is aware of my accomplishments. WOO HOO But for this brief minute I was very happy & overhwhelmed. Thank you so much.
Now back to reality of back pain & pain meds. But I do ask if any of you that read this can in any way help me get back on track with some form of exercises that would not use the back or hip muscles please let me know. thanks in advance
AND AGAIN THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING ME SMALL STEPPER OF THE DAY.
