I feel as though I may as well belong to the 50+ group. My stupid back. It gets sore so easily. Ughh. I'll hop in the hottub later tonight, since that helps, and I have my heating pad ready to go. I've been lifting too many heavy boxes at work. I COULD refuse to do it, but they are so behind in their work, and I like them, so I do it anyway.

I dunno if it's a mistake or not that I made myself indispensable... or at least, for the moment I am :rolleyes:
I'm sure that you could slip through the net as we do have an illustration ( we have tons of funny ones about us oldies ) about friends and forgetfulness ! Who will remember the rules of joining and I even forget that it was + 50 ? :p

Indeed, the forum should is more about having fun rather then creating drama.;)

I don't think that anyone is indispensable at work. Even if one is excellent at their job, their is always another person out there who can replace them. Perhaps it's just the though that keeps one going ?;)

I've been useless lately. My weight is the same but I have gained two inches around my breasts and waist as I haven't been exercising.:oops:

I will start using my trampoline again today.

I've also got a bad lower back - something happened to it in labour...hopefully it will sort itself out over time.

Anyway, yesterday I did a short workout. About 15mins with some light weights - squats, lunges etc. So that's a start :) also walked to a friends house which is not far but better than nothing.
Oh I remember that! Then with my second I had hemmoroids :yuck:.
You're in good shape and will get back to yourself soon :hug:

Hey, happy June, everyone. :) My goals remain the same: to drop some weight, eat better and continue exercising regularly. I tried on some of my summer clothes, and it was not pretty. :D I really need to focus on healthy eating again. I've been struggling with it since I got laid off, but last night, I was like, OK, enough already. Time to get super serious. I'm going on a baking hiatus. And I'm cutting out crunchy snacks for a bit, even the pretzels. I usually do OK with them and tortilla chips, but I need a jump-start. I need to drop 15 pounds, I think. Clothes will feel much better when I do.

Thank you. How long did it take to get better Silva?

Today my legs hurt so much from that short workout :rofl:
I have no idea- 25 years ago :eek:. It did seem like a long time, I recall getting the 'gotcha' pains in my back, but the hemmoroids were worse! I remember being traumatized by the marshmellow belly :blush:

What I didn't understand after having babies was how women didn't get back in shape! So much running around, and I did all kinds of exercise just playing with them! They were perfect weights! So little time to eat....

Going to cut the grass and stuff....I was leaving that to the boys but I thought, what am I going to do when they're not here? I surely don't want to get where I have trouble doing stuff like that!

Only cut the back cause bunnies! They're still out there almost two hours later. I'll have to check for a nest.
Rabbits remind me of the weeping angels from Doctor Who sometimes. So still!

I ate an entire pint of So Delicious cashew milk salted caramel ice cream tonight. And I'm not the least bit ashamed.

I'm a little sick, but oh well!

No exercising/walking for me. I’m on day four of something going on with my right hip. I can barely get out of bed in the morning because of the intense pain. Putting weight on my right side is very difficult.

Once I get up and take some Tylenol/Advil..,I’m switching off every few hours...it starts to get a little better. But it’s the ice that’s making all the difference in the world. I sat with an ice pack at work during an hour long meeting, and felt 75% better. I managed the whole rest of the day.

I have no pain if I stay off my feet. So if course I googled my symptoms and diagnosed myself with possible hairline/stress fracture. :p It just seems to fit to a T. Since there’s no real treatment for it, other than what I’m already doing, I’m holding off going to the doctor. It could take up to six weeks to get better. I haven’t gotten up yet but I feel like it’s better than it was yesterday. *fingers crossed*

That's not a very good idea.;)

I get why you think that but not once have I ever gone to the doctor for something like this where they’ve told me to do anything different than what I’m already doing, lol. So my faith in them isn’t very good.
I broke my coccyx when I was a teenager. It was hairline. I was told to take aspirin and sit on a donut cushion. There was nothing else to do.

Do you take tumeric? I was taking it every morning, with a bit of black pepper mixed in, in just enough water to chug down, followed by a glass of water. I really felt it helped me inflammation! Just between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon

If this is an average tea spoon,- i take a whole spoon of turmetic powder and a half spoon (or a little less) of ground plack pepper. Sometimes i add a whole spoon of amla powder. This "magic potion" is the only thing that is keeping my COPD under control. I agree with you,- it must reduce any possible inflammation.:) I remember talking to you about this matter one day, but i don't remember, for what reason you're taking this mix.:oops:

I used to take fresh ginger in hot water when I had fibromyalgia and I think it helped with pain. I used to have it first thing in the morning.

I think I have exercised 3 times this week so far.
