After a three year sabatacal I have finally returned to Real Estate. For 12 years I was heavily involved in Real Estate Finance. In 2007 as I fought my weight and health issues I decided to step away from a career which was very successful but was the source of stress in my life which is what I attribute my health issues to. In January I took the plunge and finally applied for my license. My education was in Finance and my area of focus was real estate and lending.
Mind you I have not sat in a desk in 3 years... ate least not for more than 30 mins at a time. I DO NOT LIKE OFFICES. I hate office Chairs. And bam it hit me after about 2 weeks of being in the office my back started hurting severely. What happens when you back hurts? Most people go to the doctor or chiropractor or maybe a physical therapist.
I have most of the pain under control but what I have learned is that my core. MY LOWER BACK/ BELLY/ SIDE MUSCLES are not in balance. I suffered for a few weeks and then I started exercises. I felt a little off kilter.
Do you now what happens when you are eating a little too much and not exercising? You start gaining. It started and in a MONTH i gained 10 pounds. AS I improved my back exercise I feel better. And after gaining about 10 pounds I have lost it just as well. By tightening my diet.
More to come soon.
