Fixing the Pain

Published by:

So in my latest cross fit endeavor I ended up straining something in my back. I couldn’t quit figure out exactly what I did. At first it was just a dull aching pain and I thought that I was just sore from starting my new exercise routine, so I decided to keep working through it. I did this for about a week until the pain got almost unbearable. It went from a dull aching pain to a very strong sharp shooting pain. This was when I realized I had probably done something very wrong.

I decided to look for help. After talking to several people I found that I seriously needed to visit a Chiropractor. With referrals from several people and some internet searching I found Manley Chiropractic in Arlington, TX. They did a superior job. I quickly and easily made an appointment and had almost instant relief. It only took a couple visits before the pain had completely gone away, but I was hooked. I loved the way I felt after my adjustments and therapy. It was kind of addicting for me haha.

However, by turning to Chiropractic care I was able to keep my latest resolution and not turn to numbing drugs that would only mask symptoms. I really am taking this resolution seriously and hope to make a complete life style change. I am not one for dieting or quick fixes. I think the problem will always return.

Stay tuned for more adventures, mishaps, and drama!

A Late Resolution

Published by:

I have decided that it is time to get healthy. I don’t want to just get healthy I want to figure out the best way to do so. I am not just talking about losing weight or building muscle I mean healthy in every aspect of life. From diet to exercise to health care to spiritual. There are so many different factors to look at when someone says they want to get healthy.

My first stop is to look at what I am eating. In no way am I going to kid myself and say that I will be perfect in this endeavor but I will definitely do my best. I would like to start by cutting out most processed food and pre-made foods. I know that by putting my own ingredients together I can ensure what exactly is going into what I am eating.

Secondly, I am going to look into alternative medicines. By no means will I swear off all medicine or doctors but I want to look more into small preventative methods. I am going to start by looking into essential oils, Young Living Essential Oils to be exact. I have used the starter kit and have found that there are definitely some every day medicines I can replace with the oils and know that I am not putting as many chemicals in my body.

I am also going to try out the latest crossfit fad. I don’t think I will be one of the die hard cross fitters but I like the idea of changing up a workout routine.

Hopefully I won’t bore you too much with my simple things in life.
