Getting Frustrated

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

So my back has been bothering me for a couple of days. It went from barely able to take a breath in on Monday to today just being kinda sore and tight. I was planning on going to the gym this morning but when my alarm went off my back was screaming at me so I decided not to. I just want to get back into the swing of things but I'm scared of doing more harm to my back. From previous experience I know that rest is the best thing for it, so I'm doing the right thing, but I miss that gym high. :) I'm a junkie what can I say? I can at least do some cardio tomorrow morning, unless working today kills me. *fingers crossed* Now sure if I'm returning to work too soon but I'll know by tonight.

While I'm not seeing any major changes on the scale (it's come down a little) I'm noticing it in my profile and interestingly enough in my hands. I'm excited about this and ready to keep the progress going!

Oh, so my son has aspergers and I'm researching some dietary changes for him because I've noticed over the past couple of months he's beginning to get worse. :-/ So it's time for some changes and I've decided I'll be doing them with him. This will help him so he doesn't feel like he's the only one cutting out foods and it'll help me because while I was never diagnosed there are a lot of similarities between my son and I and I just read in an article that there has been some research that suggests that the health of your gut can affect memory and other mental functions. So we'll see if this helps me (I have such bad memory I went to see a doctor for it).

    Normally I'd say if you're frustrated, just take a deep breath and clear your head.....but I guess deep breaths are out for you...sorry. Back pain can be crippling, but it too, will pass and things will get better and you'll be right back to your young self.
    Sounds like a good plan with your son.You're a good mom to make changes right along with him.
