When you are doing a plank type exercise you are not, I will repeat NOT, to look at the floor. You are to look at the wall, the back of someone legs, anything 12” or so up from the floor. If you do any type of plank type exercise you’ve got to be sure you look up otherwise you’ll be in my predicament with a super sore neck and not able to exercise other then walking for a couple of days. I have a pinched nerve in my neck which effects my left arm and thumb. Today I can start working on my exercise but slowly. First some IBP and ice and then I’ll gentle work out and go for a walk.
Please remember to look up. Also when you’re doing your crunches look at the ceiling not your chest. I know we all know this but once in awhile a reminder just to make sure you’re doing proper form. My chiropractor showed me a new exercise on my exercise ball. It’s for the core and stomach. It will take some doing to be able not to fall off the ball, I’m not graceful….at all…more like a cow on a golf ball but I’ll get it.
I have also been neglecting me a little bit. I am always so busy with daycare, parents, scouts, open houses, graduation, company, sister and the usual house and home stuff that I’m a bit tired and worn out and beginning to hate everything. So for the next two days I am off and I’m going to do just me stuff. Sewing, playing on my computer, maybe a bath instead of a shower, more sewing, more playing on my computer. A visit with mama, a walk with daddy. And more the Lord and me time. Time to read the bible and pray a bit extra and harder. When daycare starts again on Friday I’ll be ready for them. This weekend I’m taking the boys fishing. We picked worms yesterday after all that rain and now have a good 30 of them waiting in the bucket to fish with. Maybe we can catch enough the kids can have it for lunch. We can hope anyways.
So my dear friends, that is what’s happening here. It’s time for more icing and almost time for my next dose of IBP. I did exercise this morning, just gently and will walk this afternoon. Monday I’m going to weigh myself and hope for the best.
Take care and God Bless!!!
