@ALEXSGIRL1 Have you tried Arnica Oil or TigerBalm on your back before stretches? I have degenerative disc disease and just had an MRI to follow up on it because of problems. I use both those "rubs". I think I keep alot of pain low by following AIP Paleo guidelines too. I hope you find relief!

welcome jenn i will try your water idea . I am sorry for your losses , exercise even a little will make you feel better, so find something you used to like and force yourself to start, Hugs Getting over losses takes time Hugs go slow do little things for you daily . bubble bath , a few pages in a book, a cup of tea, a sit in the sun on a porch. Hugs

I'm using SparkPeople more consistently than I have in years. I'm struggling with getting into fitness. It's definitely attributed to some stressful situations in domestic, work and health issues. Lots of loss in my life right now. I've been insisting that I am a warrior princess through it all, but I don't feel well most of the time and who wants to exercise when they feel like ... crap. I think exercise would help with my stress levels and might be an excellent coping tool. I just can't seem to push myself.

For JanrolG, fight for yourself and your "me-time". What I found that helps me a million gazillion times better than ever is two pretty jars with taps for cucumber lemon water that sit on the countertop. I bet I drink over 5 Liters per day. I used to struggle with 8 glasses.I have four in the morning before I even have coffee or tea now! I do lots of fancy salads and try to find a simple protein to go with it. Actually I find the more simple the food, the healthier it is. Best wishes for success!
Jenn

do you like lentils they are so good for you and only cost about a dollar i add carrots onion and some soup stock . or green peas make a great soup wtih a little ham i found some at our grocery store 69 cents. look for deals and discontinued items at the grocery store, maybe look for a farmers market or ask a freind who has a garden for produce they will have extra and be happy to give it away. I struggle with back issues and finding exercise and movement that does not hurt. lol
