Cause and effect.

As a scientist I spend my days looking for cause and effect. If I add chemical A, I'll get B and that can be measured. I also try to not make connections that aren't there. Just because there is CO2 in the air doesn't mean it's causing global warming. So you could say cause and effect are my life. I also get good at seeing connections in obscure places.

Anyway, my point, and I do have one, is that I feel confident is stating this cause and effect. Last week my lower back was killing me. I would get these shooting pains that would bring me to tears. It was horrible. I finally decided I'd had enough and it was time to get back to exercise. Saturday I started my weight training again. Sunday I ran. Today I did my weight training. Guess what??? My back feels way better!! It's not a 100% but it's probably 85%. I'll be back to 100% by the end of the week. I am feeling so much better. I knew this would happen yet I put it off for other reasons. But I'm back and feeling better than ever.

So I got this post all typed up this morning and then we lost power. Luckily Blogger saved it as a draft - who knew?? So I hope everyone is having a good Easter Monday.

One more comment about the global warming scam--don't we exhale CO2? If that's the case, and CO2 causes global warming (no proof, I know) then technically humans DO cause the problem. But, as I see it, to avoid the excess CO2 emissions, we all need to just quit breathing. Problem solved.

P.S. Glad your back is feeling better. You would think, from what some people believe, that exercise might make it worse. Who knew, right? One way to keep motivated.
