    Do you have access to a pool? It’s the best place for pain free exercise. I know it’s a pain in the butt having to book times right now. For some quick pain relief with my back, I put on the tens and a heating pad. Another thing I do is lie on my back on the floor and put my legs over a chair or couch. I usually put an ice pack underneath. Anyways, I hope it settles down soon. Have a great weekend. Are you going to have some turkey while you are there?

    I have taken your advice this morning.... Heating pad applied for over an hour, and Current Dr. Ho is busy massaging the area. It seems to be working to some degree. 👍

    Thanks! I was so excited! It's a rainbow trout. I am really good at lake fishing for trout but not so good any other way. Haha

    @WTGNicole
    It's sooo much fun! Unless it's extremely windy then it's not so fun. Haha Yes I have waiters on. The water it cold this time of year so I have leggings and fleece pants on under that too. It's funny I've been fishing like that since I was probably 8ish and still sometimes creep myself out on the water. Even though I know there isn't anything big down there. Stupid brain!

    @Megan_smartiepants1970
    I'm sorry your leg is so bad. I hope it gets better quick! I'm glad you are resting and taking it easy.

    @Poobab1972
    Nerve pain is the worst. I hope you can find something that relieves it. Rest days are good to have too.

    She is a doll!!! Mine have been waking me up around that time too. I try to ignore them but they really insist.

    Good morning all. Another wet and wild friday.

    Check in for 10/7:
    Steps - 2259
    Calories - 1479 or so. Forgot the number after 2 minutes.
    Exercise - gym. 9 machines but no cardio. I was feeling 'weird' during the machines. Couldn't pinpoint it though. Felt fine later.

    Going to a harvest festival today. Lots of booths with homemade stuff. Luckily it is inside since it's raining outside all day. We have to walk a bit to get inside though. I don't have a jacket that fits anymore.

    She is very cute!

    @Megan_smartiepants1970
    Nice loss!

    @luccianaff
    I always get my days mixed up. They are pretty magnificent animals!

    @MJ_Keto
    Getting closer to goal. Well done!

    @rwood566
    Awesome loss! Nine machines sounds like a great workout! I guess having a jacket that doesn’t fit is a good thing.

    @888Angie888
    You are doing great. I know you can be as strong the weekend as you have been all week.

    @MJ_Keto @rwood566 great losses! Well done!

    @888Angie888 Looks like a great day! Good work!

    @lindamtuck2018 I love that quote! 😂

    My back pinched last night. 😭 I think it was a combination of sleeping in the camper and kinda babying my ankle while paddling my boat while fishing. I couldn't sleep hardly at all its been so bad. I can hardly move without it catching. Takes my breath away. I have soaked in a Epsom salt bath, used ice, heat, ibuprofen, CBD lotion, used the inversion table and had someone try to rub it out. I had to spend time in the truck today which isn't helping the situation. I should be able to relax when I get home though and tomorrow I start pet sitting again so I should be able to take it easy until it heals up. I always get so frustrated when I'm doing so well and then get kicked back due to injuries. I know a lot of you understand that frustration too. Such a bummer.

    That is so me when I do any workout too! I break it down by minutes, or laps, or 1/4 miles... anything to make it seem more doable.

    Ugh, that is so frustrating! I'm so sorry you are in so much much pain, AND you can't do what you want to do because of it. Sounds like you are doing everything right. Rest and time will make it better! Be patient, and this too shall pass!

    Which Apple Watch did you get?

    @Bluetail6
    Really like your positive thoughts especially the first one. Awesome NSV!

    @Poobah1972
    That’s some pretty good cardio this morning. Watch out for your fingers also. I sprained my finger doing Medicine ball slams. I am pretty clumsy though. Hope Lynn feels better soon.

    I ended up getting the SE, still learning how to use it.

    I definitely understand back pain. I sometimes lie on the floor on my back and put my legs over the couch or a chair. I put a ice pack under my back. I get some pain relief this way. I also use a tens machine with a heating for pain relief. It might be worth a try. Do you find the cbd lotion helpful at all? I haven’t tried that yet. I hope your back heals soon and you can get back to being active.

    These steps are from the phone health app so low but oh well probably isn’t significantly higher siting in meetings all week. Food didn’t get much better either but home now and have a quiet weekend to get stuff done.

    Hope you have a great weekend! Do you have to travel much for your job?

    Weigh-In Day: Saturday (Friday night)
    PW: 156.9
    CW: 156.7

    I'll take it any loss considering I didn't stick to my diet several days this week. 😬 Back on track now though.

    Also, @lindamtuck2018 @Megan_smartiepants1970 I believe I should've had 5 weeks in the green for September. Can you check on that please?
