Happy New Years Everyone! I woke up this morning and as I fed my little baby boy (8 months) as I was moving around with him, I felt my back pop, just a little. I’ve had back problems since I was in elementary which is a huge reason I need to keep my weight in check. Having lost this much weight, I would think that my back problems would be less prevalent, but no.
Lucky for me I don’t think this instance is that bad. I think I’ll be fine by tomorrow. I also am lucky to have a supply of pain meds that can help me work through the pain. In the end, I just need to manage the pain enough, so I can move around. Moving around is the best medicine when my back is like this so I can keep the muscles loose.
The old me would normally have just wanted to spend the entire day in bed. With 3 kids under 6, that’s just not an option. That is a blessing. Again, moving around more is better than laying around doing nothing.
So, I hope everyone else has a better New Years Day than me, though my day is by no means a loss. I’m watching the Winter Classic hockey game right now with the kids which is my favorite thing to do on New Years day.
Have a great day everyone.
