Sad to say I am not doing as well with my calories as I would like.
My back started acting up from the tennis I was doing with my daughter and friend too, so I've been getting back to simple exercises for my back and not tennis for now. Even my long walks had to be replaced with 10 minute walks for now, especially since I am walking alot on school campus most days of the week already.
So the pain has made me less active, and consequently of lower mood. I am hanging in there and try giving myself affirmations daily while continuing my exercises.

Hi Laura, Glad to see you back. I know what it like to be on the injured list. I broke my wrist and have been in a cast for 6 weeks! Don't give up. Just start over making your baby steps again. If you can't play tennis or walk like you used to, find something you can do. Your mood should improve when you take control of your present situation and experience successful baby steps. Don't compare yourself with past accomplishments just get out and experience new successes. You can do it..

Laura, you're still here and you're still tryin so baby welcome back into the fold. I'm sorry to hear about your back. Tennis, I TOLD YOU SO!!!! lol it's a friggen KILLER. Maybe check into the gym at your college, they may offer student rates on massages. It may help Laura and would be worth the 20.00 or so cost. Otherwise , see if there's a chiropractic around that can see you cheaply. One or two visits may be the only ones you need and if you've been suffering long , sweety, it's time to try doing something about it. I know I was given Skelastin for a week for my back. It's an anti spasmotic and helped a lot toward pain management. Just try to take care, ok?
How's school and your artwork going? Hope that at least is going well for you, as I'm really quited sure it is. Huggs k k
