Hello Friends. I have not mentioned this on this baby yet so I will now. I have a somewhat serious back injury. Although it is a huge pain in the can it is something I am almost thankful for as it is probably the true reason I have been motivated and able to make big progress in my quest for better health.
It is your classic “rock and a hard place” scenario. It was so bad that in combination with being 565 pounds I could not walk at all much less do any other normal being alive type activities.
The reality in my head was that I needed to change or pretty much it was game over. Pretty easy choice……bahahahahahaha.
I am doing other more strenuous exercising at this point but that does come with a price. Last night was mostly sleepless and kind of crummy. Keep in mind I am not complaining about that. I am destined to get past it. It just is the situation.
My point today is walking is really underrated. I walk each and every day and when I do not get to as much as I desire it is disappointing. I can feel the benefits even as I am doing it. There is a point during my walks when I feel as good as I will for that day. That point always comes during a walk. It took a long time to notice that but it is real. Eventually in the walks my body starts to tell me I have had enough and then things go down hill with the crabby back real fast.
The cool part for me is that time of feeling good is expanding on a weekly basis. There will be a day when the bad goes away. I just know it!
This isn’t much of a scientific recommendation but I say yes to walking. Especially if you are just starting out on your quest to make some changes. Not to mention, if you know a good dog…….chances are he is going to like the idea a bunch as well.
Bye. – Clint
