Party Rock – on a rock – in game

wpid-Collage-2014-02-23-22_06_16.jpg.jpeg

This weekend was 100% enjoyable.  a majority of it was spent gaming, hanging out with the family (Jeff, and our two fur-balls, Taz and Toby).  A LOT of it was spent studying because I had two exams to post for.

Breakfast this morning was Quaker Real Medleys with blueberry and banana, with a side of research.  See, I’m still dealing with chronic back pain.  Turns out, I’m doing it wrong.  When my back hurts, I feel like I can’t  exercise because of the pain.  It’s like, I can’t twist or bend, so why try?

Well, I was reading some peer reviewed articles on www.spine-health.com and one of them said that for Chronic Intractable Benign Pain (CIBP) one of the best things you can do is to exercise.

 A typical response to experiencing back pain is to take it easy – either staying in bed or at least stopping any activity that is at all strenuous. While this approach is understandable and may even be recommended in the short term, when done for more than a day or two it can actually undermine healing. Instead, active forms of back exercises are almost always necessary to rehabilitate the spine and help alleviate back pain.

Guess who’s going to the gym after work?

I’m a PROcrastinator…

My husband proved he’s can foil my attempts at procrastination when he remotely accessed his computer to block me from watching a video. I had shut my computer down to prevent myself from easily using it, but Jeff’s was available!!

Until it wasn’t.

Lol

The funny thing is that this was just coincidence. He didn’t realize I was on his computer until I closed a window he opened.  I didn’t realize he was on his computer until he opened NotePad and told me to stop, lol

“Normative influence occurs when group members are persuaded b4 the knowledge that a majority of group members have a view.”

Pretty interesting reading for class tonight.
