Let's try again shall we?

Positive energy chaps!

Getting a new work computer!  Intel Dual i3 Processor! 
Getting a new work desk!  All one level!  Brand new!

My back is better, but not 100%.  Was told to stand up straight, since that's what's causing me to be bent over sideways in dull stiffening pain. Not standing up straight to begin with!

Denver job sent me a form email on the HR reps supposed day off, saying that they were overwhelmed with applications and they're not adding me to the short list.

Greek style yogurt ( made by me sorta ) plus honey plus cinnamon is just plain awesome.

So yeah, wine grape harvesting has wrapped up in this part of the state.  Who wants to go taste wine this weekend? (I might if the back is okay, one of the wineries is offering wood-oven fired pizza. )

Sit ups by lm (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Oct 14, 2010 at 08:50:45 PM EST
Once your back heals, start doing situps regularly. Start slow, something like 5 a day. Do that for a couple of weeks, then try 10 a day. Keep slowly building up. I bet that if you get to a point where you can do fifty a day or so, you'll not have any more problems with your back.

But do wait until you back heals. Nothing's better than fucking things up than starting a exercise regimen while your muscles are still messed up. And once you can do it, don't be in any rush to push the numbers. Keep the progression nice, slow, and steady.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

I have to do something. by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Oct 14, 2010 at 10:07:56 PM EST
I really want to start weight training, hell even kettlebells or something, but this back is just too fragile anymore.  Hell I used to bale hay back in the day.  Now lifting my laptop gets me worried.

do not do situps. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Oct 15, 2010 at 02:02:12 PM EST
weight training really will help rehab your back from its broken state. but you need to find somebody who knows what he's doing. situps are contraindicated by many.

yeah. by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Oct 15, 2010 at 07:46:02 PM EST
Doctor already said no push ups, as that's what trigger last year's flare up.

I'm pondering getting a trainer, but well after the start of the new year, I think.
