So my pain has still subsided. I was a little achy this morning so I took one of the Meloxicam and I really haven't had any problems today. I did Body Pump this evening and the only thing that was questionable was the ab workout (which might have been the problem to start with!) Keep sending your good wishes my way!
I decided to use tickers on this blog - something I haven't done before but I think is beneficial. The first is the lbs lost ticker. The first goal was to weigh the same as a baby elephant (which was to be 35 pounds less). The second is a 3 month goal of exercising 75 hours. I've really like updating them each time it is necessary. They are both short term goals that are attainable. And I like seeing the little elephant racing towards the goal!! (and there is nothing depressing about either one!)
