Not So Great Weekend :P

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I did fine Saturday, it was Sunday I decided to make Chicken and Dumplings... which probably wouldn't have been too bad for me other than the fat was still left in the chicken broth, and the dumplings themselves. Didn't do bad til Sunday evening when it was ready so Sunday wasn't so bad. And had leftovers Monday, didn't follow the diet too well Monday.

Back on Track today, though I made just regular coffee instead of my protein coffee. I'll have to remember to have that later, or protein and milk.

I also haven't been able to go walking. My back was killing me for like 4 days last week, and when it finally started feeling better I over did it and now my muscles in my legs are killing me. Not sure if I will try to start walking again today or tomorrow. Also it's supposed to rain everyday for like a week. Maybe this would be a better time to start the exercise ball and walking in place inside.

I'll try a weigh in this Saturday to see how much the eating and no exercise has affected my diet. Hopefully I'll still be able to lose a pound or two. It's hard to tell with this scale too. Not sure if it's accurate enough, or it's messed up, or possibly has something to do with the floor.

Well I'll let ya know.

    Sorry to chime in so late on this blog post but I wanted to give you some encouraging words about walking.

    I have had two spinal surgeries over the last few years and was on pain meds for chronic back pain up until now. I know how crappy a bad back makes you feel and how it can impact every part of your life if you let it. I also thought that exercise was going to make it worse... it did. But I pushed through the pain a bit and suddenly it started to feel better.

    I'm not advocating crippling yourself but if you're in the range of sore to god my back is painful as opposed to "I want to cry" pain, try to keep moving and pushing on. It's worth it and as I am sure you know from your previous weight loss every pound that comes off is a noticeable lessening of the pressure on your spine.

    Love yourself and love your spine - in this case maybe a bit of tough love :)

    Thanks for the posting-it is nice to know that we are all just human. I know how hard it can be to do this but this is a life long journey. A week or even a few months out of many healthy happy years will not make too much of a difference in the long run if you don't let it. emoticon emoticon
