I think I’m doing better today. The stress of last night has messed up my system a bit so I’m a bit queasy and having to force myself to eat (gotta love homemade ginger tea). Other than that, I feel a bit more stable and was able to pop onto Facebook today and see my friend’s post and actually feel a bit of bittersweet happiness for her… it’s a step in the right direction.
Today, I plan on eating a couple of Double Cheeseburgers from Burger King, and continuing my therapy of Skyrim, possibly some Dark Ages of Camelot, and quite possibly watch some Firefly! I have absolutely no plans to exercise today!
It really is interesting to see the kind of perspective you can gain by simply taking a time out and sleeping it off. It still hurts, but it’s ok.
I’ve been temporarily stalled in my exercise routine… to an extent. The sorenes sin my hamstrings and my pelvis wasn’t going away, and I discovered why that was the case when I went to the chiropractor yesterday.
Apparently, I threw my lower back and hips out. The most likely culprit was the Yoga I did. I was so locked up that my chiropractor, we’ll call him Dr. Halo, was unable to get anything to move. That’s saying something, too. Dr. Halo is a very solidly build man. So, I got some extra Stim, and a bit of a run on ‘The Rack’ before leaving. Almost immediately, though, I was able to walk without pain, so I believe that I had some sort of pinched nerve.
I was also instructed that I’m not 16 anymore, and that if I think I can do it, I probably can’t at this point! Since I was so active in gymnastics and equestrian sports when I was younger, he expects that it won’t take me that long to get back to where I was, but I’m to do just standard stretching for the time being and work on getting my core strength back before I try the yoga again.
So, it’s like exercise for a bit, and then back on to some harder stuff. I’m kinda bummed, as I was finding that the exercise was doing a lot to lift my mood. So, since I can’t really exercise, I’ve been listening to music and beebopping around the house.
OH! For you Skyrim fans out there, I’m sure you’ve heard this already, but if not, you’ll like it!
