The weekend with THE GIRLFRIENDS was awesome as expected AND I ate badly the whole time!!! The culprits alcohol and snack foods... lots of crackers and cheeses and popcorn and CHIPS - I ATE CHIPS!! And chocolates --- good chocolates and CAKE - it was my birthday... Meh... The weekend ended with ice cream for dinner a request of my kids and my mom. I feel totally crappy... AND...
I threw out my back! I think it started with Body Pump - I over did it with the ab work - a leg lift exercise strained my back... and then I drove 3 hours straight.... and then I sat a lot... I ran 3 miles Saturday morning but that was it for any activity. I was sore all over from Body Pump, but sitting for extended periods yielded painful aching from my lower back; shooting down my left leg... I could deal with the aching, but when I got home I moved a chair with my foot and that was it... I am an invalid....For anyone who hasn't experienced lower back distress... it's so incredibly painful, maddening... Heat, Aleve, massage, and TIME... that's all you can do, though I think time is the only thing that works and I am not a patient person.
I'm checking to see if I can get an acupuncture appointment today. It can't hurt.
Then DH is gone for the week! The cleaners are coming Wednesday! I've purged the house of all the junk - soda, ice cream, chips, crackers, nuts - not of the good variety - strawberry margarita mix (yuck), Dove bars, hot dogs, and questionable condiments. The girls and I are all about CLEAN EATING and getting back on track.
I'm fasting today through dinner. I'm weighing Wednesday morning - facing the music!!
We've begun the push to the end of the school year - Summer is shaping up. I want to be ready!!
