Thanks to sofa snuggles with Pooch (and a huge ice pack), large doses of ibuprofen, and physical therapy exercises, I am pleased to update my last post. I am feeling pretty good. My back has settled down and only hurts if I stand for a while. And, thanks to my vigilant food journaling, I've lost 2.5 pounds. That's a really good start.
I'm planning to start walking again on Saturday - just a 10 minute stroll. There's no hurry to get back in shape, and rushing it will just land me flat on my back again. So, 10 minutes a day will do just fine for now.
Thanks to all of you who left notes of encouragement - they helped a lot.
I'll be back on Sunday with a new What's Cooking post. Have a great weekend...
