I have taken time off from the blog. I know I needed to post this the end of March. It doesn’t look good when you go to someone’s blog and they haven’t posted for two months. I have been busy!
April was a wonderful month in the garden. The April challenge was so gratifying. The Challenge was to go outside everyday and do something in the yard. There are so many health benefits even from just pulling a weed. I am sorry I never posted. I was obsessed with being outside, weeding, planting, and mulching.
May’s challenge is to do three eight point planks, 3 anchored bridges and 2 extensions. It is a recovery month from all of April’s gardening.
Planking with Elena. It is always more fun with friends!
Of course, I am still out pulling weeds and new Blue Kazoo Spireas are coming Friday from Proven Winners! Happy Mother’s Day To Me! Have you been planting? Leave a comment and a photo. I would love to hear from you!
They will have pretty white flowers soon!

I have been dealing with numbness around my left knee because my spine is not perfect. I am a very active person and I want to keep it that way. I also teach others to do the same. As many of you know, I went in for a back tune up. I have been dealing with back issues for most of my life which I am not really going to go into here. I went to The Integrative Wellness Center in Belmar and have been working with Dr. Kyle Klim who I like very much.
On Monday Dr. Phil Pritting was there. I first went to the wellness center last year because I found out that Dr. Pritting was a Certified Foundation Training Instructor.
Foundation Training has helped my back more than anything.
Here is the latest for me and you from Dr. Pritting. Follow him on Instagram @DoctorBoombox. A very powerful 3 minutes. I am sorry Dr. Phil is not really in the video but you will hear his soothing voice. Check out my cool socks!
Thanks to Dr. Kyle Klim for taking the video. He is a Chiropractor for pre, peri, postnatal and pediatric wellness, He is also a Craniosacral Therapist and a doula, Integrative Wellness Group Belmar, NJ. AND he works on me!
I am so grateful to have Kyle and Phil in my life!
I have had issues with my back for a long time. I remember hearing about degenerative L4 and L5 in my twenties. I was a competitive runner and I know years of running wasn’t good for my back. I would walk around with ice packs in my pants to reduce the pain and inflammation.
Fast forward to three years ago. I did something to my SI joint doing nothing of course. It created numbness around my left knee. I was in PAIN, I went to my MD, she gave me drugs. I had chiropractic care, massages, acupuncture, physical therapy. I did it all! I had x-rays at that time and was told that I needed to reduce my workouts. I didn’t want to accept that answer. I kept searching.
I found Foundation Training by Dr. Eric Goodman. I started to do the exercises. I went to see Dr. Phil Pritting at Integrative Wellness Group in Belmar because he was a certified foundation training instructor. I really started to improve and I was so happy take control of my own back problems. Of course, I started to include these amazing simple exercises into my classes.
I have been doing well. I am able to do my workouts. I still have issues with numbness around my knee. I wanted to make sure that my back wasn’t getting worse. So I decided to go back to Integrative Wellness for a tune up to see Dr. Kyle Klim. I had another set of x-rays taken. I am happy toreport no significant changes in my spine 3 years later.
