My back pain began on Saturday, Dec 23 after a two day trip to visit my family. Earlier that week, I had enthusiastically written "Exercise" on my calendar as a recurring daily activity. And I had started off the week by going to yoga, walking the dog and managing to throw in some interval sprints, and tried a new Barre class. But since the pain started, I have rarely left the house and my exercise has been limited to climbing the steps a few times per day. I can be pain free for a few steps, but then my left leg struggles to bear weight and it not only hurts but starts to shake and grow numb, so I sit until it passes. As I have been taking in the new perspective on TMS, I have tried a couple of 5 minute yoga practices which have felt good. Yesterday, during the Day 2 goal setting, I set a goal of attending a full 1 hour yoga class by Saturday. Even writing this, I feel anxious and wonder if that is too ambitious. I should add, that I am spending about two hours every morning immersed in TMS resources - reading, listening, and writing in my journal. I have really let a lot of repressed emotions come out and feel very grateful. Yet, as my limited physical activity indicates, I still have a ways to go.
