Well, I didn’t get to run as planned… I have a worry-wart of a husband that really, REALLY doesn’t want me to push my body too hard while I’m dealing with these issues, especially since I am not exactly fueling myself very well at the moment. He pleaded with me to put any hard exercise on hold until after my scan, and as much as I hate to admit it, he’s probably right. So, no run… But I did get a good walk in with my mom, and that made me feel just as good. I soaked up some sun, I worked up a good sweat for the first time in days, and I enjoyed some quality time with my dear mother that has been all too rare since she started a new job that takes up too much of her time.
Most importantly, my mental state was vastly improved. I’m still hurting— today the referred pain to my back has been the worst, but at least I got some activity in, even if it was just an easy power walk. Negative vibes have been banished for now, and that’s what’s important.
