4 NO's July 4th!

Trying to keep cardio time up more this week, very humid and hot, trying to remain hydrated too.
The first of three nights of fireworks begin tonight here. Wish I could go down to the river and watch them tonight, but have to be up early for work in the morning..

Will add more time to cardio tomorrow after work, but my back is in pain this week,, going to use the rice bag I made that Sparker NorasPat gave me the pattern for.. I filled the fabric up with rice and sewed all of the channels up,, we just heat it in the microwave or cool it in the freezer and apply for any aches or pains we have! I love it,, it will help me sleep tonight on my sore back.

    This is a great idea - even better than frozen peas! Of course, I don't sew, so I'll have to find an old sock, and so I can tie a knot in it! Thanks for posting this idea.

    Hope you feel better quick! I also have back problems (2 surgeries) and that is the worst

    Be careful with back pain. Don't let it get too serious. Resting is essential. so take your rest days.

    We bought some thread and some more fabric at Joanne's fabric shop this morning to practice sewing on my new machine and fill the bag as well and sew. Can't wait to sue mine.

    An 'easier' rice pack is made from a sock.
    1) Fill a sock with (uncooked) rice.
    2) Tie it shut with twine, ribbon or string. If the sock is long enough, you can tie a knot in the sock.
    Hopefully, this will bring up an image.

    I love my "rice" pack - not sure it is actually rice but someone gave it to me and you can freeze or heat in microwave to ease pain - LOVE IT. It really helps. The weight I have lost has reduced ALL kinds of pain for me and I hope by the time I am done this process, I will be chronologically older but at least 10 years YOUNGER in how I feel.
