I would agree with him .... was away on the hiking trip no back pain at all - back one day (& was having a lay day all sitting) & started to feel it tighten etc.
Have found my rhythm to look after mine walking/standing much of the day with rest breaks keeps my back & me in perfect health
despite all the food i was being fed on my lux-hiking trip (lux being i did not have to carry or cook food except my lunch etc) I managed to lose weight ... nice side benefit.
Now the countdown to my next trip in April
Mini challenges this week:
Keep with the healthy brekkie ( so easy to slip after being away)
No choc snacks till after 5pm ( it is the season after all)
1-3L water daily - cuts down temptation for coke & ginger beer even with 90+% humidity
