I want to send a huge thank you to all the great friends that came to cheer me up when I stated I need support. It was wonderful to read all the support. I really did need it after the fall and the back pain. I did not expect that many replys. But it is a great sign of how wonderful the people are here on Spark.
I am very fortunate to have found this site and of the friends here who are willing to take the times to respond to me. I want to tell you it is rare. Not even on facebook do I get more responses.
So thank you again and I hope I too will return the favor to another when I know they need the support also. I so want to be able to and pay it forward also. It is strange how just a few words of support can go a long way in cheering someone up when they need it.
Thank you again to you all, and you know who you are and I hope you check back to see that I was aware and thankful.
Yes I did it again and I have no way of finding out what I am doing. I am in pain and having spasms in my lower back. I did my weights and machines today. Then I did the elliptical for 30 min. By the time I finished I was in pain. I tried to not do a few of the machines that was for the back too hoping to avoid problems but it did not work.
I also had a small accident on my way out the door to the gym. I am very clumsy and I was moving too fast and I fell hit the door from with my head, hit the two sides of the corners on both of my upper arms and hit the floor with my knees. I was a mess. I got up put ice on my head for a few min. then out the door I went to the gym. So I could have made things worse with the fall too.
All in a day for me really. But I got my weights done now till Monday. I have vicoden that I can take to sleep. It seems to help and I do not have muscle relaxers. I will put heat on the spasms too tonight.
I feel like Satan is attacking me so I cannot get done what I know I need and have to do to lose weight. i have not really lost this week. I am hoping too that I lose on Monday.
I saw my heart doctor today too, he said the med the co. gave me was the exact same I was already taking so that problem solved. He faxed me new script.
So many small things I am still working on for me. I now have my food stamps back so I can buy groceries. they dropped me when I was gone.
Well the weekend is hear and I am not moving from this chair all night. Have a good one you all friends of mine.
One thing to celebrate I got lucky on the wheel this am I got the 500 free goodie points that was cool.
It was a quiet day for me. I just relaxed most of the day. I did do my 4 miles with DVD of Leslie Sansone. I just cooked this day making pork tenderloin and homemade applesauce. First time I got to cook since I arrived home.
We all need a little down time. I think I have been putting so much into the program my body just needed to keep kind of quiet. My back muscles are reacting too and trying to keep healthy.
Tomorrow I will be back the busy day with a lot to do for me. I do the heavy schedule 3 times a week. I have one day where I totally rest with no exercise that that is usually on Sunday.
I had a great day at the gym today. I did 60 min of weight lifting, and I am starting to see muscle tone and also the burn of each muscle as I to the exercise. It feel so great. I really feel that the reason I did not lose weight this week is because I am developing more muscle and it weights more. I hope to do my measurements tomorrow. Just have not had a chance to do it. I did the machines also, and after that I felt so great I decided to go for a walk because the weather is so great. SO I did 2 miles. Later tonight I went to my Zumba class and I am getting better at that too. It is a great 90 min. class and I love it. They are usually 60 min the the trainer asks if anyone wants to stay for an extra half hour and many of us do stay. I feel like I am getting my moneys worth as they say. I go to this class 3 days a week.
I know I am in size 14 now. I cannot wait it I go down to another size. Plus getting under that 150 mark will be a mile stone for me.
It feels so great to have all this positive things happening with my body. I am so thankful that I have this site for support and to help me keep on track. It is an amazing feeling for sure. Thank you spark friends.
