Can you hear my hamstrings complaining from wherever you are?๐Ÿ˜Š

Yesterday was a beautiful day.. so it inspired me to weed an area I let get overgrown...

My hamstrings are having a hissy fit today..used some pain erase, later heat and stretching...

Hoping by morning they will have less to say

At least I was getting my vitamin d

How are you feeling Lj? Any better? I had the same problem after doing some planting. I couldn't figure out what in the world I had done but boy did I feel it every time I bent over.

Have you found some tricks to work in the yard with Fibro? My sister is buying me one of those garden scooters. I bought some short handled tools like a shovel, weeder, rake and a mini hula ho. I just bought them so I haven't had a chance to use them yet but I think it's going to help to garden while sitting down...especially since I have neuropathy in my feet.

I also lay down newspaper in my vegetable garden with grass clippings over the top. It keeps the weeds out and ends up composting into the grounds. I've also laid newspaper/ grass clippings along the side of my berry bushes next to the cyclone fence.

How about you?

I think my muscles were just too tight when i started๐Ÿ˜Š

I sat on a foam roller after, which stretched those muscles and the pain did not last as long..thank goodness!!

I do that work in small segments ..let me know how you like the garden scooter.

I still have not started my mulching, but maybe next week๐Ÿ˜Š
