@kali66 @danette @jgpittenger @annied @pamknowler @grammyn @redy4et @newbank Hello friends! Thanks so much for visiting my little hello post! I'm happy to report that after lots of Dr. visits, a few pain procedures, lots of physical therapy, and a very regular routine of exercise (an hour a day at least), my back IS better, but it's always in some form of pain or another--nothing like the nightmare now almost 2 years ago. What I have learned is that I have to keep moving no matter what and I also exercise not because I "should: but because I "can." I participate in swimming, Zumba (modified), and Barre classes to strengthen everything. This year, I have run 2 5ks so far, and I've tried to hold off the degenerative back problems I can't rid myself of, but can slow down. I love my group exercise classes the most because I have new friends who are so positive -- and my instructors really help me modify all my moves so I can still get the full experience of being active. I have had a few setbacks, and when that does happen, I go right into the pool every day to get my exercise--it is the ONLY exercise I can do without ANY pain. As long as I live, I will continue swimming. Life is good otherwise--one child in college for 2nd year, the other a senior in high school. I spent the last summer doing lots of things, but not much photography. I'm trying to get back into it with clients (portraits, realestate shots, head shots). Hope everyone is well. I really miss 365. I keep promising myself I'll get back into it, and then I fall short. xoxo
