Ask the children to leave the room. Husbands, hide your wives. I have enclosed a naked pic of me below to show the highlighted area of my lower back pain.
I am fine, but spent much of January with limited mobility and a lot of aches, due to my compressed lower disc in my back. During the day, I can basically stand upright and walk somewhat normally. But if I have been sitting much, or if it is morning or night, then I am limping and in a bit of pain. Bending is nearly impossible. Climbing in and out of my vehicle is slow and painful work.
It is embarassing that I let this happen again. Too much sitting (required by work) and not enough stretching and exercise is to blame. I often find myself thinking that my running habit of late 2010 and early 2011 is no longer possible for me. Yes, I can still bike, but I really did enjoy the running thing.
At 46 years of age and still overweight, am I now too old to gradually begin a walking/running habit? One year can't make that big of a difference, can it? (Hopefully not).
So, here is the pic. The white and red highlighted areas? Tattoos! My body is my canvas.
