When was the last time you exercised or did another physical activity? What was this activity? How did it make you feel physically and emotionally? If it is has been a while since you last exercised, why? Does a day of shopping with two teenagers count? I'm happy about my day today - 200kms in the car to the nearest big city and a day of shopping..and apart from some minor twinges, the pain stayed away. When the twinges were there, I just said, "Ah, it's just TMS" and they buggered off. I did take my CBD oil though this morning before leaving. But, to answer the question : I am a very active person. I live in the French Alps and I hike and ski and ski tour. I went hiking two weeks ago and I had so much pain after that that I haven't done anything physical since. But, I count today as fairly physical compared to the last two weeks and tomorrow, I've decided that I'm going walking. Not hiking, just walking. I love hiking. I love being outside. I love the fresh air and I love the beauty of the Alps. The smells, the colours, the quiet. I also love being fit and strong. I didn't stop physical activity when all this started but I was on pain meds. When I stopped them, I did go hiking quite a lot during the 42 pain-free days and have no idea why the small walk I took 2 weeks ago had me in so much pain. So, I'm looking forward to my walk tomorrow BUT I am scared. Why? I'm exhausted from the pain and don't want it to start again. So, in keeping with the programme, I'll be saying to myself that there is nothing wrong with me and my body. Everything is in perfect working order and there is no danger in sight. See you on the other side!
