Well, I wanted to blog, even though I have nothing super exciting to say.
My back is still jacked up a bit and unfortunately I am out of pain meds as of this morning! :(
I really wish I knew exactly what was wrong and what I should or shouldn't do physically to help it. The ER doctors were not super helpful and I really wish I would've been in the right state of mind to ask more questions at the time.
Today my plan is to walk a little on the treadmill super slow just to get some activity. I've probably logged a total of 2000 steps since Saturday. It's getting a bit depressing.
Yesterday I felt pretty good so I took a (much needed) shower, wore a real bra and tried to clean up and cook a bit. Well, I overdid that for sure. Now I'm back to the point where if I look slightly to my left I get a shooting pain all the way across the middle of my back.
Oh and did I mention I'll be flying to California on Sunday to then teach a bunch of kids for two weeks? Yeah...really need to get better.
I did an official weigh-in last Friday and was only .9 pounds away from my first goal and had discovered that I had lost 2% of my body fat, which was exciting. I'm sure that I've put back on weight and lost muscle this week since I've basically been bed/couch ridden.
It's also really annoying that I'm the only one that cooks in my house because if I can't cook then it means we are eating out. So basically all the veggies I bought last week to make healthy dinner with are going to waste AND I've been eating Thai food and Pizza instead.
I think 2012 me would've gotten really depressed and cried about this but 2013 me won't have it. I'm going to finish my homework for the week today. I'm going to walk on the treadmill a bit and I'm going to try and cook (i.e. throw on a baking sheet and roast) whatever vegetables can be cooked and then freeze them for later. At least that way when I get back from CA they are there waiting to be put into stews or veggie burgers.
Even though I hurt myself last week I did run 5k on Monday and 5k on Thursday, in addition to two other gym days. So I know I can do this. I'll get better and then I'll keep running and April 25th (my bday) will come around and I'll finish that 5k under 40 minutes.
Not I should, not I can, I WILL!
I really need to teach my cats how to high five. Sometimes I write these motivational blogs and I want to lean over and give someone a high five. Yep.
