Well, we decided that we were not getting enough exercise (OK...none really!) and that the winter cannot be an excuse anymore, so we decided to jump back on the Wii Fit bandwagon. Jump is the optimal term here! I just got on and did my little workout as if I been on last week, not 9 months ago. I am proud to say that I was down 17# from the last time I was on there (276 days before). I gained weight while we were in Alaska last summer, so I am down 20+ in the last 6 months. So I am feeling thin & fit and enjoying my time on the Wii Fit!!
Then on Monday morning I went to go do laundry. Not sure why but I've just not been doing a lot of laundry lately, so there are MOUNDS down in our laundry room. My back seemed to be a little stiff so I sat on a stool while I sorted. I went and fished some dirty clothes out of the
I have to say I was a little nervous. I think chiropractors in general probably get a bad rap and I didn't want someone messing with my back. The guy could tell how bad my back was by the way I was standing right when I walked in. He did an assessment, took x-rays, put some TENS & heat on my back, and then stretched it out/assessed the muscles. He put on some Biofreeze and send me home with a few samples. WOW~ what a difference that all made!! My evening was pretty good and I was able to stand & even sit a little. I look forward to going back on Monday!!
I slept so much better last night and so much of my pain is gone this morning. I still have to baby my back because it's tight and sore, but I don't have to catch my breath from muscle spasms when I bend over. I am very thankful that one of the other moms from preschool took my carpool and class duties today. While I am vastly better, I still shouldn't push it. I do have to take my daughter to Little Gym today, but I will bring a long a heating pad and not run around with them. (Today is parent participation day, but my daughter knows my back is bad!) Her future school is having a family fun night tonight, but I will have to see how I am doing by then. I think DH is a little overwhelmed with playing mom, so I am not going to ask him to take her. We have a little family weekend getaway planned which I think I will be OK for. I am hoping the pool has a hot tub!
