Man I could go for a nap right now but I know I won’t fall asleep, I’ve gone almost all week without napping. OPP (old people problems, I know. And quiet frankly this whole post is going to be about my OPP’s and how I feel, or more specifically how I feel the pains in my body.)
Also I’m only 21. haha OPP’s eh ?
I’m always tired maybe it is because I get up at 5am or something but it sucks.
But I’m never tired enough to nap.
Also my body is always physically tired too, like sore knees and back, as well as my shoulders.
Back in “russet time” I would just down Advil like no other. As if it was candy. But I rarely take Advil now because I’m trying to improve my health by avoiding unnecessary things and Advil in my opinion aren’t that necessary.
I think for January I have only consumed two, and that was because I had the flu and a migraine that wouldn’t let me get out of bed – but I had to go work.
(another post to follow on how I am making changes to be healthier, eco-friendlier and organic and about my job that I am thoroughly enjoy)
BUT I have noticed since I’ve been changing around my workout plan (including more leg workouts like Squats, sumo squats and lunges) my legs are stronger and therefore less sore, but it is overall still hard on my knees. Like the inner of my knee joint.
I tried researching different things I could do and all of them recommend knee pads but honestly there has to be other ways. Some natural path remedies? oils ? Massages ?
Do you know of any ways that can help stop joint pain in the knee due to kneeling (work)?
My back hurts from the futon I’m sleeping on (Couch / bed) and my shoulder hurts from that too as well, also my sports bras – I only wear them to work and for working-out but I know they’re miss sized. It’s annoying as fuck, I need new ones, but my budget at the moment won’t permit it. So I have to stick it out fora little while longer and budget them in one day.
But anyways I’m sticking out the aches and pains in order to be healthier and pill free and debt free 🙂
What changes / sacrifices have you made in order to be healthier ?
Does your budget not allow you to buy things at the moment ?
Are you consumed by your debt ?
Do you like your job ? What is your job ?
I was watching Dr. Oz the other day and he recommended Arnica gel as a natural pain reliever. Not sure if that will work for you. Are you kneeling on a hard surface? If so can you get some kind of pad to kneel on? I bought one from the dollar store to use when I do push ups on my knees.
My job consists of milking cows so I’m always kneeling to get down to their utters. My boyfriend wants em to get knee pads except I’m Hesitant- I don’t want to wear tacky knee pads LOL. But we’ll see – my knees are sore everyday no matter what 😦
Tacky knee pads … knee pain … tacky knee pads … I would try the knee pads.
Oh fine :p I’ll see if I can pic some up for cheap. that are less tacky – like maybe pink ones :p
