I can totally relate to wanting to jump in head first when you're feeling well. I've had a history of overdoing things myself. It's hard but I've tried to ease more into new routines especially when it comes to strength training.
I've done crunches for a long time and they've definitely helped build my core but I've found planks to be the huge boost I needed. I lean on my elbows and then alternate raising one foot at a time until I finally can't hold it any longer. The irony is that working the core can throw out your back (I've done it) but if you can get past that point, the strong core will very much help your back.
I sometimes have been getting that posting limit notice myself even when entering my email address for my avatar to show up. That should prevent it from happening so I'm not sure what's going on technically. If you hit 'back' and then try again, it often works to place the post even though you got that message the first time.
