Ouch.

Pinched my sciatic nerve a couple of days ago.

I am walking around hunched over and feeling rather foolish. Puts a bit of a kink (pun intended) in my workout regimen. Despite that, either today or tomorrow I plan on going anyways and avoiding anything that hurts overly much... except breathing since that hurts too. So, 43 days left and likely a few less of those at the gym than intended will not add to my anticipated beach physique.

What I have discovered is that Tylenol 3 and Celebrex make for a happy girl. HOORAY. For someone who rarely takes pain medication of any kind - I've certainly saved myself for the best. I've felt a bit guinea piggish as of late - I think I've become somewhat of a medical marvel. Just this time last month and I was perfectly healthy...

So... off I go to watch the hockey game and make soup. I was going to garden this weekend but unless I can figure out a way to do it upside down - doesn't look like I'm going to get a jump on it just yet...

It's funny, but when you avoid workout regimens at all cost you rarely get hurt.

The early grave is a nice benefit as well. ;)

Upside down gardening...I wonder if there is an invention out there somewhere for that one.

Double Ouchie ... pain and an ungamely gait. Poor you. Hooray for painkillers.

Earl - strangely I think I used to have a worse back before I worked out like an animal...

jon - get on that... big money to be made ;-)

bobo - Luckily the walk is returning to a quasi normal state... and come to that the back is feeling a lot better as well. Thank goodness!
