I was looking over my Spark Goals and realized I haven't been blogging 3 x week ... so here's a blog.
I have had a resurgance of my lower back pain recently and it has really affected my mood. I can't do intensive physical activity and that intense activity (running, elliptical treadmills, biking, spinning, etc) has really kept my endorphins flowing) I have felt great for months. No depression. Well, the back pain has allowed me to sink back into a depressed mood. The depressed mood has led to several days of emotional eating in the last week. Not good. Last night I totalled up my calories ... 2400 not good. Added to the two 2100 calorie days earlier this week, I can see that I am headed down a slippery slope. I had swum for 30 min of easy laps but hadn't moved much at all yesterday, so I got up and walked slowly on the treadmill for 30 min and did the 10 minute ST video `for the Spring into Shape Boot Camp. I felt much better about myself and am moving into today in a better mood.
