just an update

Monday my back was in a great deal of pain. I missed a lot of work that day. Tuesday my back didn't hurt at all and I thought that maybe it's the chair I use when working, so I took off during the day to go to a warehouse of office furniture to find a chair. They advertised ergonomic chairs for $39. I went "chair hopping" for about an hour trying out several different ones. I found one that was wonderful, but it was $80. Twice what I was able to pay, so I didn't end up getting anything. Since that took 2.5 hours out of my work day, I worked late that night. Wednesday was my bible study; another almost 3 hours out of my day. Worked late again. Last night when I was chatting w/my boss--who's also my best friend--he said he's praying that I will stick with a workout program. (He's also a personal trainer.) So, this morning my back was hurting a little and I went to the gym to do an hour of water walking. Came home w/my back hurting so much more. Is it not my chair, but perhaps the water walking that's causing the pain? Maybe it's a combination. I know I need to stretch more.

Last night I ate at Cici's pizza. Not a great place, but it's "all you can eat" for $5. and my roommate was hungry. I ate three pieces of their pizza--knowing I was adding tons of fat to my diet. When I added the calories/fat in SP I found that I was still at half of my calories for the day and still under the fat! I'd forgotten that I hadn't eat much earlier in the day. Yay!

    Eddie's right about the exercise. I liked SIMPLE_TAYLOR's suggestion to check with someone at the gym, especially if you think the water walking is the culprit. I wouldn't think so but they Have you ever had your back checked to see what is going on?
    Hope it lets up and you get some relief.

    Is there someone at the gym that you can talk to? Maybe they can suggest some alternate exercise program.

    I hope you will find a cure and the reason for your aching back.

    your sleep habits or the bed itself might be a reason? emoticon
