A month with dealing with back issues

Monday, February 14, 2011

First of all... WOW I don't blog a lot and I need these blogs to pick me up when I'm down! So far, the few I have written has help me get through.

UPDATE related to my back issues:
It's been a month that I'm dealing with back pain. It started off in my lower back and gradually made is way higher. I am still getting to work and continuing my daily activity EXCEPT for my work outs routine. I am now seeing a physiotherapist and she determine that some of my discs in my back are not moving properly but with the help of rehabilitation and acupuncture I should be up and normal again in a few weeks...

In January, I weigh in at 221 lbs. The xmas holiday set me back a little bit, not by much, but it's the time that my back started to hurt. Since January 7, I have not been exercising, no workout not even a walk. At the end of January, I weigh in at 219 lbs. I was disappointed in myself for not being able to lower down my calories. I was always hungry and even starving since I was used to eating about 1,900 calories a day and working out 6 hours and more a week.

I feel I was using my back problems to eat whatever I wanted, as if it's an excuse!!! I started the month with a more positive attitude! I went looking for motivation and found my own blog and friends older blog and it help me trough. We are all fighters here, we want to be healthy and no excuse is good enough for me. My back hurts, I barely get any sleep, walking hurts just as much as sitting down or standing up for too long. BUT back aching doesn't mean I have to stop caring for myself. It's ACTUALLY the opposite be careful and prove myself that I CAN and WILL succeed.

I weigh myself this morning: 215.6lbs.

DETERMINATION & PERSEVERANCE can get you a long way!
