Recently the husband and I took a day date to go for a short hike.
I’ve been battling a cold AND a sore back so the last few weeks I have been taking it easy and not getting out and moving like I’ve wanted to. The sun was shining and we wanted to get some fresh air, stretch our legs, and work towards getting back on track of our healthy lifestyle. It’s all about embracing each day right?
So, let me just back up a little bit. Recently I posted how I’ve been struggling in my weight loss / healthy living journey and part of that stemmed from this back issue. The last few months I feel like I’ve been going back and forth with some body stuff (stomach issues, a pulled back, a summer cold) and it’s just forced me to realize that my body requires strength, good nourishment, and rest! One day, a month or so ago, I pushed myself to go to one of my fitness classes even though I KNEW I should have stayed home and just stretched / walked the neighborhood. Halfway through the workout I felt a slight twinge in my back and just continued on. I left the class feeling strong, proud of myself, and motivated. A few hours later my body revolted; of course this also happened to be the weekend Kiki was flying into town to hang out. I ended up running to Walmart to pick up some Aleve Back & Muscle Pain to help get me through the weekend, and y’all IT REALLY HELPED! I was able to power through the weekend and enjoy the time with Kiki and my back pain was easing up. Aleve Back & Muscle Pain is now available at Walmart. Only Aleve offers up to 12 hours of pain relief in just 1 pill*. All Day Strong, All Day long. *Among leading OTC brands,. based on minimum labelled dosing. Use as directed. For occasional sleeplessness associated with minor pain try Aleve PM.
Fast forward a week or so later I was feeling pretty good and decided to just go CRAZY at my next workout…and you guessed it…irritated my back AGAIN because it wasn’t fully healed. I took it easy for a few days and then I had a few hikes coming up with friends & Eddie and I knew that I would need to do some good stretches, up my water intake, and take some Aleve Back & Muscle Pain to help ease the tenderness. I refused to let my back pain prevent me from enjoying my time outside here in San Diego and want to put my whole self into each and every day!! #NeverBackDown
