I know, again, an image that has nothing to do with topic, but it’s getting toward Christmas, so I thought a festive picture would be nice.
I haven’t been hooping for over a week. In fact, Thanksgiving Day was the last time I hooped. Why? The Sunday following Turkey Day, I really messed up my back cleaning up my garden pots……BAD.
I knew I should have asked my husband for help lifting those heavy bags of dirt to the dumpster. I should have bent better with my knees while bending over to empty the pots into the bags. It was really my own dumb fault, and I laid myself out physically for a week. It will take another week or so probably to be back to fully normal.
I did go to the doctor, yes, and a she gave me some prescriptions for the pain and swelling. I have cut back on the pain medication a lot in the past few days, so that’s a good sign.
As for hooping, I’m going to try class tonight. Try. I need to see what my limits are right now. If waist hooping doesn’t feel good, I’ll see about doing off-body move practice.
I did miss class last week. I HURT. I couldn’t walk straight, and was moving very slowly. It took three days before I could function normally and walk at a normal rate.
Well, here’s to recovery and knowing better next time.
