Almost 1/5th of the way in my 100 Day Challenge.
Finally figured out how to get my water in, at least during the week, and it's going great.
I'm still banned from exercising due to my back problem. I am allowed to stretch (yeah...), and I'm continuing my pushup and pull up routine.
The past few weeks at work have been very stressful, and not being able to get my workouts in is not at all helpful.
Back is slightly feeling better today, I've been doing therapy all week.
Next week I WILL start back up with easy yoga.

Between my challenge exercises (pushups and pull ups) and my rehab exercises for my back (pelvis lifts and the like), I now total 10 activity minutes a day.
Pretty weak for somebody whose general goal is to hit 1000 minutes a month, but I do what I can. I'm still aiming for at least 500, so I can keep my 25-month streak alive.
Struggling with water today. Didn't drink any during the day today. So when I came home tonight I still had 40 oz. left to go. Still working on the last 20, but it will get done.
Chiropractor tomorrow. Maybe he'll be able to snap me back into place.

Here it is Sunday night again; on the threshold of another busy week.
I'm on track with my challenges, just finishing up the last of my water.
Tired, nothing in my brain tonight.
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

Unfortunately that's physical therapist, not personal trainer.
Pelvic lifts is what he prescribed, and you bet I'm doing them. Really helps alleviate the pain. It's temporary, but I take it.
Since my injured area does not seem affected when doing pushups and pull ups, I am continuing those.
Water went well today, that's a 14-day streak so far :)
I just read a Sparkfriend's '900 days on Spark' blog and that made me curious how many days I've been on SP, so I counted. Today is day 1805! Wow, that's a big number :) Coming up on 5 years.
Made some great friends, learned a lot.

Today's diagnosis went from possible strained muscle to possible injury of the sacroiliac joint. Different doc. Neither doc could pinpoint the exact center of my pain.
Now adding physical therapy twice weekly to my already impossible schedule. Well, I'm hoping it will bring relief.
Contemplating to see my chiropractor next week and have him do his magic. Sure it can't hurt. Maybe this should have been my first course of action?
As far as my challenge is concerned, for the time being I'm going to drop the jacks, but will do my therapy exercises instead. I will however continue with pushups and pull ups - 13 of each today. Pushups still fairly easy, pull ups not so much.
Still tracking my food as well.
Extremely glad that the weekend it here. It's been a long week.
