The journey continues....
The majority of you follow me on Fb so you already know about my current spinal issues but for those who do not know I will keep it brief. The short story is I have some bulged disks caused by bone spurs from arthritis that I am currently trying to control. Many of you remember my shoulder injuries from 2 years ago and how we could not find the source of the pain, well, now we know. It is all from my C4/5 and 5/6. So I am going to be receiving epidural injections, seeing a chiropractor and PT while we wait to see if the pain improves. If not, we have consulted with 2 surgeons regarding my surgery options. But I want to wait until I have tried all I can first.
I was depressed, anxious and unmotivated when I first found out all this was going on 3 weeks ago and so now I have to get back on track. I have gained more weight and now that the pity party is over, it's time to get back to work! I cannot train as I did before right now as it hurts to much but I can walk and ride on the spin bike until it hurts, then I need to stop.
So I am setting a new goal. To walk and bike a total of 150 miles for this month. Starting on Monday, August 24th. I know it does not sound like much but it's a start back and we will see how it does with my pain.
Shoot for the stars right?
