What a pain in the.... back
Friday, August 13, 2010
Sooooo frustrating! I was really getting into a rhythm of working out and actually switching things up with some great strength training on the Wii and I go and mess up my back. Urgh! I hate that.
I was fixing Denver's chain on his bike (We pardon this interruption with a proud mommy moment to report that yes, my 4 year old taught himself to ride without training wheels). So, there I was sitting in the garage pushing his handlebars with my legs and pulling his back tire and tightening screws so I could tighten his chain. I guess that was too much pushing and pulling and tightening for one person to handle, because when I stood up I realized I had made a big mistake. Yeah, I rocked the bike repair and now his chain is nice and tight, but OUCH! What in the heck did I do to my back?
That was on Monday, and I am FINALLY not hurting all the time. It's still going to be a few days until I can really go at it again, but right now I'm not taking anything for granted. I realize some people have pain like this every day of their lives and I feel so grateful that I have (usually) a strong, able body. Sure, it might be a little too jiggly, too stretch marked, and too pale and freckly for my liking, but it will be better soon. and that is a blessing.
