The strength training kicked my butt. Ugh.
In December, when the doctor was removing the screws from my back, he noticed something that wasn't very good-- my back muscles had turned into fatty tissue because of non-use. Having titanium hold you up for 6 years makes for non-working back muscles, apparently.
So now I'm trying to do yoga-type poses with practically no back muscles to speak of.
I have a LONG way to go, baby...
