Day 45: These physical ailments are driving me nuts!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

2013 has not been a good year in terms of pain! In May, I wrenched my back doing absolutely nothing (which made it all the more frustrating) and was in pain for two weeks. Almost immediately after that pain went away, I developed plantar fasciitis for a month. When that dissipated, my sciatica came back; it first reared its ugly head while I was pregnant. And now last night I broke my toe!


Seriously, body, stop rebelling against me!

But NO EXCUSES. I will still exercise and be healthy. I may walk really slowly or focus mostly on biking, but I can still move my body and get fit!

    Keri, saw your blog scrolling on the side bar and thought I better swing by to see how you were, and oh, girl, yer' fallin' apart!! Please don't jump into anything too soon. Don't you need about 6-8 wks to normalize sciatica? And plantar fasciitis includes rest because it's tissue has been overused. It doesn't take much to wrench the lower back into misalignment. Just a twist to straighten the sheets on the bed, or a bend to pick up something and WHAM!! Now, you've gone and broke your toe!! emoticon Sending you emoticon wishes and hope you'll hobble on over and say "hi." emoticon

    I feel ya! My knees have been holding me back for several weeks now, but I still keep up my walking and strength training.
    I can't wait for full recovery so I can go back to aerobics workouts!
    Keep at it.

    Eww that is not fun! Hoping that thinks start to smooth over. You have the right mindset, there are other ways to get in exercise that wont irritate your injuries. emoticon
