Okay no workout for me yesterday. I had good intentions but ...whatever is causing this undiagnosed problem on my side/back has come back. I was fine all day yesterday. It was there but not really acting out. After lunch yesterday I was working and if I moved a certain way I felt the ache/pain. It was starting to say hello with every move I made. I debated as I commuted home yesterday on whether I would stop at the gym, take a walk when I got home, go to church, etc. I decided or lets say it decided that I should go home and pull out the heating pad. I not only took out the heating pad but I took a little nap as well
When I got up my brother came and got his plate of food from the other day that I made for him. I thought I would eat a few pieces of leftover chicken but it just had this smell/taste that kept me from eating it. My mom and grandmother use to call it tainted (lol) but I just did'nt feel I should eat it - so I didn't. I got back in the bed and chilled until I fell asleep for the nite.
I awoke this morning feeling okay but even now sitting here the pain is letting me know it's not over. I just keep praying and trusting God. So unless this goes away I won't attempt a workout today either. Just keep eating right and drinking my water today. I've made 4 days in a row without buying fast food yaaaayyy me. This is my focus this month to cook and prepare foods at home more. For whatever reason I'm thinking that I focused so much on consistently exercising that I had not paid much attention to my eating. However, I know that eating right is the most important part of the journey. Particularly at this age/stage of my life. So this is my focus this month to remain consistent but to pay more attention to my food intake. Not so much focusing on the calories but on preparing my foods and staying away from certain foods. I'm still doing great with staying away from high calorie beverages (soda, sweet tea and juice). I've been sticking with water, gatorade and green tea!
So I hope everyone else is doing well on their journey. Have an awesome day!
