Moving along on my quest!

Well....woke up this morning and could barely move. My lower back sometimes gives me grief. (yeah yeah yeah...I'm falling apart, my knees, my upperback/shoulder, what's next). I usually just use it and overextend it...but more commonly I find that while sleeping todd flips his leg over me and if I'm laying lower in the bed (which I usually am becuase a cat is sharing my of course I lay lower in the bed to allow the cat to stretch out). Anyway, if I'm laying lower in the bed his leg then rests across my lower back...which pulls my back out of alignment...and causes me pain int he morning. SOoo this morning was one of those lucky mornings. I made it through work and came home. Determined to work out. Todd cancelled on me (for good reasons this time) so I didn't go to the gym. Not to fear, not to fear. I still sucked it up and hopped onto the recumbent bike here at our house and read while I rode for a bit. So I'm still on track!

Eating. I'm within my portions are ok...I just need to really focus on chosing the BEST choices for myself!!

Hope your back feels better by now, I know how much that can hurt. Hopefully the recumbent workout didn't aggravate it any more. Pop a few advil tonight and relax.

Ouch!! Nothing is worse than a back ache. Seems to throw the whole rest of the body off. Hope you are on the mend by now.

Seems as tho' you are back on track. I'm working on it. I had to re-evaluate like you did, and I think I may be getting the old mojo back. We'll see.

Keep at it. You are doing quite nicely.

I'd put a pillow in the middle of the bed for him to throw his leg over lol. Hope you get to feeling better.

I have a bad back & knees, too. Weight loss has helped them, but exercise seems to hurt them at times. I'm hoping continued exercise will toughen them up.

Well done for staying on track by using your bike at home, and by staying within your points.
