paradigm shifts...

Thursday, September 12, 2013

so i was able to make it back to the gym yesterday. it was wonderful. yoga class, followed by the bike, and then some weights. i kept checking in with my body: how ya doin'? had enough yet? what should we do next? and when i felt like i was done, i showered, hit the sauna, and came home. everything felt fine. but last night, my back started to hurt, and now today i can hardly move. it's been slowly getting worse since my last epidural with my son, but rapidly becoming irritating. while i'm waiting to see if this round of medicine is going to help (ointments, over the counters, prescription, heat/cold, stretching, massage, all tried), i'm also trying to decide how i should proceed for the remainder of the afternoon. what HAS to be done, what should be done, what really isn't that important to be done. the babies are napping. i would love to join them, but about the time i get settled, one of them will be waking up.
and i'm whining. it's time to stop. i can't even stand myself. i'll try again when i have something better to express...

    Whining isn't always a bad thing. It bleeds off some of the stress as long as you don't wallow in it. My mom learned to take power naps (she had 6 kids under the age of 8 on her own). She would lay on the couch for 15 minutes and get up much refreshed. Somehow, she figured out on her own how meditate for that short period. Maybe a few power naps can help you, too.

Hope your back irritation stops soon!
