Yep...I have graduated! After 4 months of 3x a week treatment, I no longer have to visit my chiropracter...except for a monthly maintenance...and I can start physical therapy and exercising. This really excites me!!!

My advice to all of you...strengthen your core! Keep exercising! Be healthy!!! From everything I have learned from this ordeal, I would have avoided much of this pain...and it would have ended sooner...if I had a stronger body. 

So...this morning, I started my new routine and walked...well hobbled might be a better description. Yes, it was difficult. But as a fitness instructor/friend once told me, "the first step is the get moving!" I made it almost the whole way around the neighborhood...about 3/4 mile. And I'm feeling great!

And now that I can sit for a longer amount of time, I will be catching up with all of you. (And I'll begin painting, too!!!)

So here's to a healthy 2014!!!

Oh Noooooo,,,,,,what happened? Injury or recurring back pain? I do feel ya....I suffer with major back pain and have indeed found pilates to be my answer. It was either surgery or strengthening my core, Guess what I chose??!

Jane, I didn't know about these physical problems...glad you got some help and are on the way to feeling better. Thanks for stopping by. I've been on somewhat of a sabbatical myself...vacationing people staying at our house. We've had company for a month :) Tiring, though. Just getting back into the main stream of things...
