I Got A Chiropractor For My Daughter's Birthday

Today is my #2 daughter, Joey's, 7th birthday.

I spent the morning taking my wife through a workout (she's looking really good and has lost a lot of weight doing only KB & bodyweight exercises - NO CARDIO!!!) and then we took Joey out to her favorite restaurant for breakfast.

Last night, we dropped AJ, Frankie & Mikey off at my parents house to spend the night because Rozanne and I like to spend one-on-one time with each kid on their birthdays.

I also managed to reconnect with a friend of mine on Facebook who also happens to be a chiropractor. Thank goodness for Dr. Waj because I was able to see him in the morning and get my back & neck worked on and my rib popped back in (although I had 3 ribs out on my left side and he could only get 2 back in).

The bad news is that I need a few more treatments and the left side of my back is - and I think this is a medical term - "royally messed up".

No workout for me today on the recommendation of Dr. Waj. My back will be pretty tender for a while so I'm going to lay off the upper body workouts for the next couple of days.

Luckily I'm on a deload week this week, so I'll be lifting really light and will just focus on doing hills and lots of full body abdominal work.

Great present!!!!! A Chiropractor can make a huge difference in your health and your workouts. I am about to finish my first year at Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX. My entire family, wife and kids, see a chiropractor weekly & it has made a huge difference in our lives. Glad you're posting on the old blog again.
