sidelined for today

My week was sucky.. we went to Homer and ate out A LOT, and had dinner at friends houses, I gained only 1.6 pounds, but I also started my period, so that was impressive, because that usually stacks on about five pounds to me for a week....lol
I didn't hit the gym except last sun and monday before leaving and Homer was dismal so we didn't do any hiking, it snowed and blowed the whole time we were there, with a bit of rain mixed in for good measure.
I did 65 minutes on the elliptical again yesterday, the hill climb version of the performance program. I am proud of myself... i was trying to talk myself out of quitting at forty minutes but I stuck it through. However at work last night I ran all night with a heavy load of patients that kicked my a$%. I was in bad back pain at the end of the night, as well as having the beginnings of a migraine. I had drank my dose of water for the day too before you ask...lol...
When I got home I took a dose of Imitrex for my headache, and took out our eighties "Getting Firm" book from the thrift store... lots of exercises in there to do to strengthen the body, hubby uses it. I did all the back exercises that I could, they have some they say not to do until you have no back pain. Then I went to bed, legs elevated, heating pad on... woke up several times, finally at 230 I called in, I still had a headache and I am certain my body can't handle another night. I work again friday and saturday. I feel slightly bad about it, but I work lots of overtime, includining this coming friday.
