Too Much Too Soon?
Monday, April 08, 2013
Monday is once again. And it's a cloudy, windy, showery kind of day here. I slept better last night, the back pain seemed much better both last night the this morning. So I, in my infinite wisdom, decide to hit the gym at lunch. I didn't over tax myself (or at least it didn't feel like I was), I still did 50 mins on the treadmill but at a slower pace (3.0 MPH) then I have been doing it. I got done, grabbed a hot shower and headed back up to my cube. And you know what? My back is killing me! So I'm left to ponder...did I do too much, too fast? Or am I just being a baby about a little pain? It hurts most when I take a deep breath. I have taken Motrin IB for it and I'm hoping that helps. If it doesn't it's going to be a long drive home tonight!
Hubby is getting around much better today. He can get out of bed by himself, even do some light cooking (for his lunch), shower alone, etc. He also is starting to some light PT that the Dr says he needs to do at home. I told him he needs to do them other wise he'll be in even more pain at the real PT next week. All he has to do is bend over and swing his left arm slowly.
I'm suddenly tried fight now. I know I did sleep better last night. Oh wait...sugar rush! I had some jelly beans! The rush must be wearing off. That would also explain the slightly nauseous feeling right now too. I so have to stop the sweets between meals!
Well...I guess that's going to be it for me today. Have a great one everyone!
