I'm getting myself in shape and in the process, getting my life back.

The city's big truck came yesterday and picked up all the tree limbs in the neighborhood. While I'm thankful they do that, they always leave behind some broken pieces and dig up some of the grass. So, this morning I got up and went out to pick up all the debris. My back was hurting a little, but I'm stubborn and just kept working. When you're out of shape you really should listen to what your body is telling you. I felt a shift way down low in my back and it's like the wind got knocked out of me. Now is not the time for my back to go out!! All day today I've been trying to get relief. First I laid around (which is hard for me to do even when I don't have things I want to get done), then I walked around outside with Sydney in the backyard. Lots of moaning and groaning whenever I tried to sit down and then get up again. I have a pretty high pain threshhold, but this Hurts!
Needless to say, I'm really irritated. I have too many projects left that I want to get done this week. I'm hoping that if I rest today, tomorrow it will be better. Today was so pretty and sunny, too. Sigh.
Diet? Well, I'm still eating okay, sorta. Not dieting really, but mindful of what I'm putting on my plate.
