Sore throat, back pain, WEIGH IN

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

My back is killing me. I did something to it at zumba and now I can barely move without being in pain. This too shall pass. Even though I'm kinda bummed that I wasn't able to run and missing my Body Pump class, there are other days! When my back gets better, I'm planning on taking full advantage. For now, it's walk every half hour around the store or the warehouse (the store is better because it's not cold) and when I get home, put heat on it. I have a few more hours until I can take advil. I'll also be stretching it out and paying close attention to my posture.

Unfortunately, my throat is killing me. I sound like a 13 year old boy going through puberty. It's not pretty...but I can occasionally serenade you like Barry White which is almost a plus...if you're into that sort of thing. Luckily, I got tons of hot stuff to eat from Medifast. Tomato soup for lunch...and when I get home, a nice hot mug of water with a green tea infused crystal light wannabe...thing. I have no idea what it's called, but I bought it from Medifast.

In other news, I'm down another 4.5 pounds! I have lost over 20 pounds so far! I'm so excited! Tonight, I'm making cauliflower breadsticks for dinner with a hot marinara sauce. To think that this recipe is a complete lean and green meal! I'll also be doing some stretches for my back while watching...HOCKEY!! Yaaay!!

    Take it slow getting back into exercise. Injuries and/or sickness has a tendency to take the wind out of my sails when it come to dieting and weightloss.

    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    I know all about back pain...unfortunately. Definitely make sure you ice it. It will help with the pain and inflammation.
