Good Monday Morning to you and Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day was declared a national holiday in 1894 and pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of workers across the United States. On this Labor Day, we thank the entire CAL FIRE team for their hard work and dedication each and every day! Happy #LaborDay!

Living in California and dealing with the ongoing annual fires that appear to be here to stay, I’m particularly grateful to our amazing Fire Fighters. Many have been evacuated twice, lost their homes twice and continue the heartbreaking fight yearly. We continually feel blessed and grateful our house is still standing.

While the smoke has played havoc on our eyes and lungs and we are encouraged to stay inside on certain days, it’s a small price to pay for the devastation at hand. Our immune system is compromised, pulmonary issues and eye issues can kick up and breathing can be difficult so it’s best to stay inside to do your workouts. If you are outside, limit your time outdoors but don’t use it as an excuse not to workout.

So, on to the purpose of this post which is to MOVE and STAND TALL❣️

Did I just hear you grown or were jumping up and down clapping? I know it comes at the last day of the long weekend and if you happened to be one of those that partook in lots of festivities, you might feel like laying low today and that’s ok but it’s not an excuse not to move. As you can see I’m on the slow train today posting in the afternoon instead of my usual 8 a.m.

At the very least it’s important to get up out of your chair or off of the couch and get the juices flowing. Your body and your mind need it but first, breath a few grateful breaths as you sip your morning favorite beverage.

Standing tall and sitting in a correct anatomical position is so critical for proper alignment and avoiding compression in your spine and joints and it has to be adhered to, to avoid Dowagers hump, stenosis and stress on the joints. As we age it gets harder to stay upright with gravity taking its toll, so we must do everything in our power to combat the tendency to slump. I can’t tell you the amount of clients I see that I nag about posture, which makes a huge difference on every joint in our body.

It happens to the best of us:

In the process of deciding that I would post something on the subject to the actual writing of it, my back went out which hasn’t happened for a long time since I am an avid exerciser. My L 4 and L5 disks compressed a nerve creating a bulging disk. As I stood to start my day, I couldn’t weight bare and had to lay down on the ground and stretch for about 45 minutes before I could even get the the bathroom. My hips were feeling ok which has been my ongoing issue but no doubt contributed to the misalignment and the impact of the falls that I’ve had lately. The day before I was in tip top shape or so it seemed with big plans for the day ahead…not so fast. Besides, it’s rarely one thing that throws your body out of wack but a series of things that effect the kinetic chain that finally gives way.

My husband was gone so I asked my son if he would give me a gentle bear hug and lift me to pop my vertebrae back in place which generally works like a charm. There was a big pop and a groan by me and he said “wow that was a loud crack of your back”. I looked at him and sighed and said “that would have been my rib”.

It just so happened I had a Ortho evaluation and ex-ray scheduled for Monday which was perfect timing so I could find out what was going on. My back was pretty much back to normal by then but my rib cage was killing me. It turns out I have arthritis and bone spurs on each of my Femur bones ( the bones that fit into your pelvis on either side).

THE DARK AREA AROUND THE BALL OF THE FEMUR (LEG BONE) IS WHERE THERE IS SPACE FOR CARTILAGE. WHEN THERE IS NO DARK AREA IS WHERE ARTHRITIS HAS SET IN. THE SPURS SIT MEDIALLY ON THE BALL WHICH IS HARDER TO SEE.

The doctor wasn’t certain if the pop in my rib was a broken or I had pulled the inter-coastal muscles or it was just a strain. Chances are pretty good it is a strain. While breaks from adjustments are rare in chiropractic treatments, I know clients who have had ribs broken from high velocity adjustments which is why I recommend and do soft tissue manipulation which avoids jarring on the joints. This is good information from pub med if you do think you have a cracked or popped rib. This is the problem when professionals decide to take matters into their own hands: myself included… lesson learned.

Aging Ain’t For Sissy’s

When I looked at my hips they looked so asymmetrical (most of us do have asymmetries in the body FYI), which in actuality were even but my huge scoliosis was what was making them appear as such. When people hear scoliosis, they often freak out when in fact a nearly 20% of adults have scoliosis, and another found scoliosis in two-thirds of people over 60 years old. In short, it’s a curvature of the spine which can be mild to severe creating little pain if any to a good deal of pain. Females tend to get it more than males and it is often something you are born with. Physical therapy was prescribed and rather than trying to treat myself, I’m going to go and get support even though I would bet you they are the same corrective exercises I would give to clients.

Scoliosis - Wikipedia

this side of the hill
scaling takes a little time
all systems a go

I always evaluate what I may have done when I get an injury or a wake up call when something like this happens. I thought back to my posture while I was typing in bed that night and it turns out I was slouching without back support, putting undue pressure on my joints.

I also will sit for hours without getting up and I know better.

I went outside and laid flat in a lounge chair and asked

“what is this about”?

The Answer:

Stay mindful in movement

Get up every 30 minutes (of course I know this)

Keep your posture impeccable

Drop what you cannot do (Rome wasn’t built in a day)

Do not walk and write

You can’t afford more falls

Take your vitamins

Keep your daily back exercise routine.

I vowed right then and there that I needed to take heed and cannot ignore the fact I live in my body and I can’t take it for granted anymore and The time is NOW.

Here is a great exercise called Angel Arms to open your chest (pectoral muscles), lengthen your cervical spine correcting forward head and practicing neutral spine.

See my post I’ve Got Your Back for a 15 min. back exercise routine and more tips.

Here is this months video of Tai Chi movements to work on balance, posture, proprioception which is simply the awareness of the position and movement of the body.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping in today. I do hope it was helpful.

Stay Mindful Blessed and Safe,

💖

Cindy

I’m bad about bad posture.

Started with a pushup routine a few days ago; I will take time to avoid injury.
When I started I would perform one or three push-ups to a set, and perform sets for hours.
Today, I started with a stretch and pushup routine, 60 minutes later, and 10 pushups deep into a 260 pushup routine¡ I did the next 100 within 30 minutes; and from there call day over!
I will slowly walk back to 1000 pushups.

State took driver’s license, after walking for a decade I got my license to have it but a year when I secured enough points for revocation.
I was in and out of gyms locally, but really liked outside workouts. Naturally I workout in the front area before the road. And pushups became to goto outlet for anxious potential.
Within the last 2 decades I now have made the transition from 1000 miles walked every 16 months, to every 4 months having walked 1000 miles.
All or nothing.
In 2016 I completed 1000 pushups weekly. I was doing 100 pushups and 100 sit-ups in 10 minutes. Then by 2019 I made the transition from 168 hours, to jus 2¡ https://youtube.com/channel/UClSljNwq9QDWgR5HPjORndw

Oh Cindy, I hope that your rib is alright now and that your hips aren’t causing you too much pain! I have had scoliosis since a child and I blame it for me lack of flexibility in yoga…but that may be an excuse! As for my posture…may favourite place to write is stretched out on the sofa so I might have to adjust that! 😬😅❤️

A fantastic post, as always, dearest Cindy! I was not mindful about posture for a very long time. Though there are consequences today for this, I am always more aware of posture today, and am thankful for it! Though even inside of being mindful the body will do as it wills, hence frozen shoulder on the left side and a small tear in the right shoulder. Working then daily, and being mindful matters! Lots of love. 🥰❤️🥰❤️

Ah! You found me, excellent! Ha! Always mindful, yet, the body does as it pleases at times! And, was not so mindful for a looong time. Yes! Shoulders take forever, yet I am so pleased with the progress lately. Ah! Now the right. I know how that is. My left knee gives me trouble at times. Aging! 😉 You’re most welcome, dear Cindy, always!

An interesting post! I love your haiku poems. I understand your feeling about aging. When I do mildly strenuous things like trimming the yard or working on the car, I end up with sore muscles in the abs and rib cage. Sounds like you might have to pace yourself with exercising so much?? I hope your popping bones were not anything that is going to cause you ongoing problems.

This might get long. I have something to say for every single paragraph (sorry 😅) Firstly, you made it very clear that posture is very very important. I’m usually taller than all the average people in the street, but boy do I stoop! My shoulders are a hint that the posture is bad. I’m very young, in case you didn’t know, (I turn 18 in 6 days) and there aren’t problems as of now. But if this keeps up, it will NOT be good when I’m, say, your age. I have observed that women tend to have more ortho problems than men so it was not surprising to read that point.
Next up, I hope you’re doing okay after all those falls. 🙂 Would be hypocritical if I commented on that because I fall a lot too 😅 Lastly, thanks for the video! You are uniquely fit indeed 😉
PS: Hope the fires haven’t costed anything serious around your area this year.
