Wk 157 Weigh In
Saturday, April 12, 2014
Today, 4/12/14 marks my 3 year sparkversary, yay.
This wasn't a great week. My back has been giving me fits for the last couple of weeks and it got worse this week. I've been getting "twitchy" feelings everyday and that's not a good sign. It usually signals the the back is going to go out. So last night my best friend who now lives 8 hours away was in town and we met up at the tattoo studio he used to work for. We ended up standing around for 4 hours, just hanging out with one of the artists and an apprentice and their girlfriends.
I came home about 11:45 and my back was really twitchy. As I stepped out of my truck, I sneezed. That is not a good thing to do when you have a bad back and you're in a twisted position. I made it a few steps and then collapsed, legs totally buckling under me. Luckily I was quick enough to throw myself across the hood of a car parked beside me, which kept me from hitting the ground. I finally got back upright and walked a bit further and it hit again. This time I fell across the hood of my truck, saving me from the ground once again. Once I got stood up and started moving again it tried to go out again and I just held myself between the truck and a brick wall. I eventually made it into the house.
Anyway, on to the numbers:
Weight : 225.4
Gain : 1.8
Total : 94.6
For the record, today kind of sucks because of my back. My left leg has been real shaky all day and I'm shuffling more than actually walking.
Sorry for the rambling, I'm currently floating on Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) muscle relaxer.
