How I Healed from My Back Injury

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you’ll know I injured my lower back 7 weeks ago.  I’ve been through a very long journey with this one. Wanna know the funniest part?

Ways to Prevent Injury

If you’ve been following me on Instagram then you will know that I injured my lower back about 4 weeks ago. Well much to my dismay, I am still not recovered and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Now, I’ve pulled my back a couple times in the past but I’ve usually recovered in about a week or two. This time around, I’ve going to the physical therapist and I seem to have a pinch in  my piriformis muscle.

Pumpkin Matcha Latte

Coffee has been my addiction but I do know that it isn’t that great for you. So I have tried to like green tea because of the many health benefits it has. That was a fail. I usually just end up throwing the tea away (I know, so sad). I gave up on my attempts of trying to get into the “tea” world and came to terms with the fact that my love for coffee will just have to do.
