For the past four days I have been negligent in doing my exercises. Every morning was full of caring for the grandkids, feeding the cats, getting the household chores done. I seemed to be on a mad run to get it all accomplished, and so my exercise routine went south.
Driving back to Fresno brought it all home for me. My fingers became numb just as they did before I investigated the problem and got a diagnosis of spinal stenosis. Years ago my fingers would become numb as I drove all those miles taking students to DECA competitions throughout the state. I can only guess that I hold my head differently while driving than when sitting as a passenger or when doing other activities.
The other time my fingers go numb is while sleeping or while grading papers. Since I don’t grade papers any more, the numbness comes now while sleeping or driving if I miss those exercises. It’s when I pay the piper. Tonight I did my exercises.
