ouch! Change

It feels lopsided being straight!

My neck is like, WHAT!!  is going on here, and now has a kink.  I did TaeBo for an hour yesterday for the first time in about 10 days and today I could hardly get out of bed.  I had to wake up in the middle of the nite to take some IB Profin.  Doing an hour of TaeBo with my chest up and out and my back and neck straight sounds pretty normal but for me OUCH!  My arms from my elbow to my shoulder blades hurt, my stomach and my hips are sore, my behind is killing my and my back is sore (in a good way).  The only thing that is not sore are my legs. 

I am just doing whatever I feel like doing day to day for now.  Because my posture has changed so dramatically I am slowly doing anything.  It's fun to run now, I am up to 2.5 miles per day, 3 days in a row with 2 days of stretching in between.  My hips are sore all of the time.  I notice my posture change after 2 miles, I get tired and then my chest lowers and my hips start to sag.  For the remaining .5 mile I have to stare in the mirror and concentrate on my posture alone.  It's working though, I started at 1 mile and am adding .5 miles per week until I reach my 10 mile per day goal.  After I reach the 10 miles per day, I will be strong enuff to start speed training.  YIPPY!

Update on the Connection Post:

The crying has ceased.  I have opened up to my BFF and to Joe.  The nightmare's are gone so for now.   I have talked about it like I probably should but I will never talk about it again. I don't have time for emotional bullshit that was sooo long ago.  I didn't "deal" with it then because all I needed to do was get away.  I understand that I do exercise because I love it and also because I initially was driven to it by an emotional need to feel strong.  The End!


  1. Sounds good! Why we start something, and why we continue to do it can be totally different reasons - good to think and process - also good to put it away and not dwell - if you ever have to get it back out to process in the future, learn something new from it, you will - if not, you won't! Nothing bad about that.

    So why do you think your posture is doing so much better. Which things specifically are helping with that dramatic change? Is it just your attention to it? Or some of the work from the specialists too?
