I did a lot of walking Saturday and Sunday but I'm really feeling it in my back now . I think I overdid it , to be honest . I've been slacking off on regular exercise too . Gotta get back on track with that .

Planks , eh ? I'll give them a try !

I was brave today & tried walking again, promising myself if my space was invaded, I could immediately turn right back around & go home. I mostly had the road to myself though & easily avoided what little traffic there was. :) Lucky me. I feel grateful. I can’t get used to it though, or I set myself up for disappointment.

Thanks NSR. It must have worked because there was minimal, easily avoided traffic again today. :) I’m very glad.

Good luck on the walk again today. :) It occurred to me to I need to avoid morning commute time for best results. Duh, right? :lol:

I had such a great walk this morning, I decided to press my luck and go for a bike ride right after. That’s an hour of exercise for me today. So I’m feeling pretty good. :D

It was such a nice day today . That sorta warm but still brisk kind of fall day . I didn't get out much , there was house stuff to do and errands to run so that chewed up most of my time . I'm planning a nice walk tomorrow and the weather promises to be just as fine .

I stopped seeing my chiropractor last week . He's such a nice guy but if nothing's changing after 3 months of weekly ( and expensive ) sessions with him then I need to explore other avenues . I want to get another evaluation . This is not the same kind of pain I had a year before . It's settled in my left hip / butt area and driving makes it really bad . Walking is fine , thankfully .

I'm going to set up an appointment with a local physical therapist and see if they draw any new conclusions . I really need to know exactly what the problem is .

Wish me luck !
