All of last summer was spent in a chiropractor's office, tending to 2 bad disks in my lower back...L3 and L4 area I believe. Now that I can walk again and not be in constant pain, my resolution (which was actually "made" last September) was to get my own company back up and running again after 6 years as a project manager...and PROTECT MY BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 42 and already fighting pain woke me up...24 yrs in this biz will kill ya if you let it.

I hope it stops bothering you.

Seems being a GC and having back problems would be the worst.

Especially in this economy, where keeping the tool belt off is tougher than ever. When it was booming, I did more on the phone in my office (truck).

Now........someone's gotta do it right.

Mine was to loose weight. Common?-yes. But it needs to be done. I haven't followed through as much as I should but I am getting back on track. My weakness is chocolate. You would think that I'm a female PMSing the way I eat chocolate. :D

Then do something else.:D
I realized long ago I could never keep up with the construction life, 25 years on the body is enough. I started looking into home inspections while I still had time about 10 years ago. I slowly merged out of "all" remodeling, to part time inspections. This year I have two separate entities. One company is a consulting/inspection and Infrared business, the other is a remodeling company and 2 subs. I have an answering company man the phones of the inspection and I have made my best year in a long time.
I would say at this point in your life, Go back to school and diversify, the bad back never goes away or gets better.
Good luck!!

And as far as resolutions go, I figure if I'm doin somethin I don't need to be, I take care of it then. Or I get in trouble.
