    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?

    I've started a "program" of walking again, now that both kids are back in school. I drop them off and then go for a walk. I love walking, the pace of it, and the breathing. It is energizing and relaxing. I try to go around the track for 2 miles, if it's dry I do a route around the fields where we live. I like seeing wildlife, and listening to podcasts.

    The activity I have been avoiding because of the chronic TMJ is eating crunchy foods. I haven't done that in over a year. Carrots scare me. Celery, even steak. I fear my muscles are going to tighten up even more and I'm going to hurt myself more severely than I already am. But I realize the only way out is to "go within." I'm not going to hurt myself eating a carrot! Even as I write it sounds ridiculous, but there you go, welcome to my brain.
