Bad back is a bummer

This weekend I was working out at the gym and I aggravated a lower-back sprain that I got the previous weekend. I thought I had recovered completely, but obviously I hadn’t. I was actually working on leg presses, but apparently compressed my back, putting pressure on the lower back. I’ve been putting a lot of time into aerobic exercise and also working on strength, especially arms, shoulders and core.

I have set myself the goal of dropping at least 10 pounds because I can see how my weight interferes with my yoga. I haven’t been under 190 pounds in ages. I’ve altered my diet, eliminating meat and potatoes from my lunch. It’s going to take time.
