C'mon Chomps, it aint over! Yoga?! Get gnarly with your diet and drop 20lbs?
Can u walk?...
Yeah! LOL most
days I can walk!
The new Chiro I saw yesterday put me in traction for 10-15 minute. That along with the Psoas stretches I was doing the last 3-4 days did wonders
! My back feels Much netter today! No shooting pains, no spasms! While I probably can't afford the 2-3 sessions a week he wants to do. (...and with the new ins. limiting me to 25 visits a year now!) :-/
I figure since the traction seemed to really help? I can probably afford the $200 "Teeters" inversion table I saw at CostCo, that along with maybe 2-3 Chiro visits a month for a month or two! Hopefully that will be good enough!
I have tried some yoga, but not unlike my search for a competent Dr? The beginners class I attended recently at my Gym, the dumb bitch running it was sooo bad. She didn't offer any
instruction whatsoever, even to those students where it was obvious
they were new & didn't know anything. She Just babbled off poses rapid fire one to the next, spouting a lot of "New Agey" mumbo jumbo between them! By trying to copy the others students there? I wound up pulling a hamstring so bad I limped for a week!
I would like to try again, with a real
beginners class with a good
instructor, but unless it's offered at the gym I already pay dues for? I will have to pay extra for it. Not a lot of coin for "extras" right now! Gotta pick n choose what I can afford to do! As I mentioned in the Today I hate thread, I am NOT dismissing any of the suggestions I've received. It's just I can only afford to try many of them one or two at a time.
You're absolutely right about the 20 lbs. (...more like 30 actually!) Now that's
gonna be HARD!
But don't mistake my intent here! I haven't given up at all!!! I intend to stay well enough to keep boarding until it
, extreme old age, or my back cripples me!
It's just been a VERY bad last 3 weeks!
