There are a whole group of people from my church who go to different meetings than I do. A couple ladies in particular I often sit next to during the 5:30pm Saturday mass.
I was also right in that the larger group left me behind. Even though I'm a tall person, I don't have a long stride and I'm out of shape so I don't walk very fast. But one of the ladies from the Saturday night mass and I walk at the same pace. So it was a lot of fun to walk and talk and get to know her better. We even walked a little further than a 5K. And we walked the 5K route which we will do for Weight Watchers WALK IT! campaign on May 22nd.
It's a flat route and it wasn't difficult so I felt really good after we were done. Then I went home, ate lunch and headed to craft and hobby day at the church, which turned out to be more fun than it's been all year. There were 10-12 people there and one of them was a church/writer friend of mine whom I haven't seen for a long time. But for most of the afternoon and evening I sat slumped over my scrapbooking project for several hours.
I mention this because I paid for it that night. I got the worst back spasm I've ever had. It was akin to when I had kidney stones and for those of you who have never had a kidney stone and/or a back spasm as bad as I had the other night, it's about ten times worse than birthing a baby with no drugs (I did that twice so I know). For those of you who have never birthed a baby, try something like slamming your hand in a car door.... several times, waiting and doing it again over and over.
I couldn't even move to get out of bed. Fortunately my husband woke up and helped me up, rearranged me in bed and got me a muscle relaxer he had had for a back spasm.
Yesterday I felt like someone had punched me really hard in my side. I started wondering if maybe I didn't have a kidney stone, but since I haven't had the bad spasms again, I think my body was protesting my "vigorous" activity followed up with slumping over my scrapbooking.
So not only do I not get out enough, I don't get out enough for vigorous activity. It's good to have goals.
