All I want for Christmas is a new back

This has been a great year for my lower back until now.  It started to twinge after my workout on Friday.  It felt better with some low impact walking and arc trainer time on Saturday.  However, it did not like the 8 hours of standing/walking at our annual Parents Night Out event.  I am in misery today.  I can't bend without screeching.  I hate when my back goes out on me.  I am taking my prescriptions and using the heating pad.  I will be seeing my chiropractor tomorrow and getting some much needed help.  Here's hoping that with treatment this flare is over with very soon.    

I am trying to take it easy today.  Unfortunately, I have to do laundry and just carrying down all those baskets took me all morning.  I will get my mom's work clothes done and see if I feel up to doing more.   This is not the time of year to be limited in movement.  I have so much to do.  I kinda wish elves existed because I could totally use a few.  

This will physically set me back and that frustrates the hell out of me.   I was making such great progress.  I just need to remember that I can't do things right now and that doing them will only make things worse in the long run.  Sigh....

On a great note, we had our first snow of the season!! I love snow!  I took my puppy out and he loved it.  He was too little last winter and hated it back then.  Today he was a mad man with excitement!  It made me forget about my back for a few minutes and that is a great thing!

  1. Hope your back is feeling better very soon! We had our first snow of the season this weekend, too! Of course, I am in Bama, so there wasn't much, but it was nice to look out the window and see the flurries flying by all day.
