Would a Massage Chair Help?

Hi Neighbors!

OK, I am really excited.  Remember when I posted about my back injury and finding out I had diabetes?  It will be 2 years in May since I was hospitalized and found out I was diabetic.  I am now considering a Massage Chair.  Why?  I am glad you asked!

I started using a treadmill and dieting after I returned home from the hospital.  Well, the exercise really didn't start right away as I had to wait for the back to heal a little first.  I started out on the treadmill, slowly.  When I say slowly, I mean I started out going 1.8 and only walking about 10 minutes.  I am happy to announce that I am up to 3.3 and doing 2.86 miles today in 55 minutes!  Tomorrow I am shooting for 3 miles.  Yippee!  Now for the reason I might consider a massage chair.  When I return from walking I have some minor aches occurring in my lower back and down my one leg.  Yes, it is exactly where the major pain was when I was hospitalized.  Usually after getting home and relaxing a little it goes away.  I also have a handheld massager we sometimes use.  I am thinking since I do sit at my computer quite a bit a massage chair might be a help.

I do have an adjustable chair that I sit in right now.  This helps me keep my feet flat on the floor.  When I sit in a different chair, I try to use a footstool or something to raise my feet up.  I also have a small cushion I can place behind my lower back to help relieve pressure.   I also use the pillow when we travel.

Since the injury I have started sleeping with a pillow between my knees like I did during pregnancy.  This helps quite a bit since some mornings I wake up a little stiff.  And yes, I bring this pillow with me when we travel too!  To help with the stiffness I have begun some stretching and flexing exercises before getting up.

So, what do you think?  Would a massage chair help?  Do any of my neighbors own one?  I would love to hear your opinion.

I don't have a massage chair but I do have a bed that raises and lowers the head and feet. It also massages which I love, sometimes I ache after sitting at my desk all day, after the massage it feels great.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
