Crack, Crackle, Pop!

I will start by saying...I love Yoga. I do what I can with all I've got...and that's alot! After my initial two Yoga sessions with slim, slinky Yoga girl I found myself in some pain. Not just normal pain. That pain that says "Dang, girl! You done did somethin you ain't suppose to!!!"

And, again, I don't blame it on the Yoga. When you sit all day answering phone calls and you have a sedentary lifestyle at work and at home...what can you expect when you suddenly start doing something. And, I had noticed several weeks ago when I would get up from my desk I would have a "catch" in my lower portion of my back or my hip or somewhere down there...and I would think "Crap! I hate getting old!"

So, it has just culminated to the point where I couldn't ignore it any longer and I had to go whining to the doctor. Then, I feel like a hypochondriac. This hurts...that's not moving right...it reminds me of that cheerleading chant "My back is achin, my pants too tight! My body's shakin from the left to the right! Ugh!! Un-gow-a! Wildcat's got the power!!"

Anywho!! Two MRI's later...I know I have 3 bulging discs and two places of degenerative bone disease (I already knew that one) in my lower back. Mid back is OK..."no stenosis" she said. Insurance won't bay for upper back so I get to wait til I go to Ortho doc and see what he wants to do. Hopefully, we will help me get rid of my kinks and cracks and get me back to some form of normalcy. And, I already know what he's going to say. GET MOVING!!! LOSE WEIGHT!!!

Yes, sir, doctor! On my way!!! Slim, slinky Yoga girl...here I come!!!

    You are not alone, I wrecked my shoulder a few years back - downward dog. My doctor was like you are not supposed to hurt yourself!

    Ewwww, that hurts. Have you checked into chair/seated exercises? When I started last year, that's all I could do.

    I found that by concentrating on my core, it helped me with everything else, even yoga.

    It is tough to not over do it when you're so eager to get on with the program. But, slow and easy, consistency and moderation go a long ways.

    Take care of yourself. Keep moving!
