I did fitness class on Tuesday night and somehow tweaked my back. Just the right side. I kept going as it wasn't that bad and was hoping it would loosen up. It didn't. It did a bit yesterday but is still a bit sore. I'm still not sure if it was the deadlifts I did Monday night or the fact I was carrying around a fat 33kg (72lb) Labrador at work on Tuesday. Either way I managed a run yesterday but haven't been doing any weights since. I also opted not to ride my horse, yesterday because I hurt and it was windy (and she's a little crazy when really windy) and today mainly because I was lazy but I doubt it'd be the best activity with a sore back. Hopefully it'll go okay at boxing tonight and maybe another run.
I have tracked my food in advance today and am hoping to see some progress on the scale this week. So far it has only gone up a bit. I am sure that one of the reasons I've struggled to get back on track as the scale doesn't seem to care if I'm trying or not trying. A couple of months ago I was working out reasonable amounts and tracking 1400 calories a day and saw zero progress. Hopefully now I'm back on track again the scale can also cooperate. I'm all about non-scale victories but when the scale goes up or won't budge and my clothes aren't fitting any better it's easy to get frustrated quickly!
