Lose It Big

From losing to living

Morning Run

I still have not been able to sleep through the night due to my back.  Instead of crying about it at 4 this morning, I got up, stretched, threw some clothes on, and ran.  I am not sure what happens when I run but my back feels ok.  Maybe it’s the weird chemicals that make everything go numb.  When I finished running, I was hoping my back was better but, NOPE.  I am typing this at work sitting in my chair on my butt with my feet on the chair and my knees pulled to my chest.  Sounds weird but, it helps the pain.  Sitting just kills me.  At least I got a run in this morning.

I snapped a picture of myself after working out yesterday.  Taking a picture in a small bathroom in a mirror while holding a phone is hard to do.  It’s not a very good picture but, I tried.  Only a few days left until I leave for vacation.

I ended my biggest loser competition at 131 pounds.  I am now staying right around 139-141 pounds.  This past week I haven’t done much cardio (blaming my back).  I am still eating relatively well with a few cheats now and then.  Now it’s time to eat my lunch of spinach, cottage cheese, tuna, broccoli slaw, hot sauce and Greek yogurt.

    You know, I should have thought of this earlier, but for some reason i never put two and two together…do you use a foam roller at all? I’m no doctor, and I dont know the nature of your back problems but I have taken some foam rolling classes and have heard time and time again that using a form roller (especially on your legs) helps sore backs since many times it the muscles in the legs and glutes being tight that pulls on your back and makes it sore. Let me know if you want more information – I actually have a whole packet of foam rolling instructions that I got from my trainer that i could send to you if you’re interested – you just need to purchase a foam roller!

    Hope you start feeling better soon. As frustrating as it must be, just do as much as your doctor says you can do and wait it out! You can’t rush these things, or so I’ve heard. 🙂

      Thanks! Have a great time on your vacation too. I am hoping enough people did the good weather dance for you that the left overs will make the rain go away from me.
