Lots of walking....

I walked the mall & Kroger most of the day with the kids & my mom....trying on dresses is a workout itself too...lol
Giving myself a mile ;)

Cody had soccer practice this evening. I walked the park once before I had shooting pain in my hip...ugh. 
I even took a rest & did a photo op with Rufus ;)
 I got up & moved today!!!

Outside today...

It's Spring Break so my alone time is being taken by my kiddos. Luckily it's a beautiful day! It feels best when the sun is out from behind the clouds :)

I did some Pilates in the back yard this afternoon while the kids played. It was a nice break from the mountain of laundry I need to do! 
Hopefully it'll help my motivation to go through ALL the stacked up junk mail & bills on my counter....oh & finish the laundry.

What's one way you are being productive today?

For real.....

Like for real.
NOTHING was goin my way this morning. Too much to type out but my day just didn't start out good at all. I feel exhausted from all of it but as we all know... Monday's SUCK.

I DID make it to Aqua Zumba! I went a little early & swam some laps so I was in the pool for an hour this morning.

Monday's post...and Tuesday...and Wednesday :)

This morning I went to Aqua Zumba AND we stayed for Aqua toning. This is the first Monday I was actually ready & really wanting to go. 
It felt good. But I really wish the energy would stay with me when I go home. I still feel soo exhausted. 

I know the pain in my back is where I'm moving more but my extra weight isn't letting it be easy....yeah, I know it's not supposed to be easy but it's not sore pain. It's not pain from my workouts....I'm aggravating areas that have problems...I get a lot of inflammation in my lower back.
And no I don't over do it. Being in the pool helps & I know my limits in Pilates. 

So I'm asking for prayers to help me figure out what to do. I don't want to see ANOTHER back dr. I don't want to stop trying to loose weight. But the pain is just really getting to me.... :(

Tuesday & Wednesday...
I didn't get to work out....Tues I was goin to walk the park before Pilates & I could barely get out of my car. The pain was just too much. 
Same for today....I could prob go to Awua Zumba but I'd just aggravate even more...
I did do some stretching this morning to see if it would help, but the pain....

I did get a referral to the back pain specialist again so hopefully I'll get in thre soon. This pain really sucks.

Took a nice walk with Ted, the kids & Rufus today. It's so beautiful outside! 
I can't wait for more warm days in our future :) 

Only bad part...my hip is bothering me. I have pain shooting down my left leg & it hurts soo bad. 
Thankful I made it home & got some ice on it!

Just plain tired

Pushed myself & went to Aqua Zumba this morning. 
I really wanted to go Monday, but I was asked to sub & I try not to turn those opportunities down ;)
AANNDD no one could go with me to Pilates Tuesday so I didn't go :/ I'm still really unsure of this other teacher too. But I'm willing to give another try if someone will go with me lol

Super Pilates...

Oh my....Pilates was SOO hard today! The "real" Pilates teacher is back & she moves really fast through all the moves. She's good at explaining things but I totally could NOT keep up! And with my back probs I was just sitting through several things she was doing bc there was just no way....
I feel good that I went, but I also feel like a failure...like I'm just not cut out to do this class anymore. 
I'm totally bummed bc I loved it. Now....idk :(

Got up this morning & was totally able to walk! Just still have hard time picking things up/bending down. 

So got a mile & a half in before heading to Aqua Zumba today. It felt AMAZING being back in the water. I just need to keep pushing myself to go! 

I saw my chiropractor also & she may refer me to see my other back pain doc...(forgot what he's called) She told me to keep doing what I'm doing & to not over do it...stop if I feel too uncomfortable with anything...so hopefully it's just my body getting used to stretching/moving & i won't have to see the other doc.

Prayers are always appreciated!

Slackin with my posts...

I didn't get a chance to post about my Pilates on Thursday last week. It felt SOO good to get back to it. But my back was NOT happy with me :(

It just doesn't seem fair. The more I move, the more I try to better myself, my back pain shows itself & prevents me from going further. So how am I supposed to do this?!?! 
This past weekend the pain was just HORRIBLE. No meds helped relieve the pain...

So back to the doctor I go to figure out what I need to do. Hopefully I'll get this figured out :)
