little things I take for granted...

I am 33 yo and have been blessed to never have experience back pain- until about 1-2 months ago. Oh my god!!! Those of you with chronic back pain, I praise you for all of your weight loss efforts.
I finally went to a chiropractor to get an adjustment, and we went for a longer evening walk. I may have eaten about 2200 calories today (yes, I own it), but I am so proud of doing the walk. I wanted to do more, but my poor significant other has chronic knee pain.
Luckily, she is gonna let me make her a licuado (mexican smoothie) that my friend and coworker advised. its 3 tbsp of oatmeal left to soak overnight, fresh fruit, and water. We are trying to control my blood glusoce, and her hypertension, so any small changes mean a big deal to us. I had to start logging my calories again, bc I needed a lil git right...I needed to see just how much fat/carbs/protein I REALLY am eating.
So, we are back on the grind. I really like these walks. It helps reduce my stress from work, and lets us talk about our day outside of the house.
And you chronic back pain folks: keep it up. A walk around the block, using food cans as weights, whatever it takes, its an investment in yourself.

    I bet, with all those endorphins kicking in. Bless your hearts for still making that effort. It is tough to get out there once you get home from work, ain't it? I get soooo lazy and think, "I just wanna sit in 1 place for an hour." And it turns into 2 or 3 hours! lol

    My Mom has been struggling with getting out for walks since she hurt herself and she is really missing them. She is a much more positive person when she gets out and pounds that pavement. I have done it myself a number of times after a rough day at the office. :)
