Update for the week; I did really well last week! I tracked everything I ate every single day, and exercised at least 3 times which were my goals for the last week.
I’ve still been sick which made exercising really hard, especially since I couldn’t do any cardio. Then on Monday, my back was feeling pretty sore from all the coughing I was doing from the Bronchitis. Unfortunately on Monday night, when I was going to bed, I reached to put something on my dresser and was struck with the most excruciating pain across my mid-upper back. It was so painful it brought me to tears and made it so I almost couldn’t move. Sleeping that night was near impossible and the next day, I wasn’t able to go to work I was hurting so bad. I had to hobble around the house like an old lady. I was able to get in to a chiropractor yesterday afternoon and again this morning and am to the point where I only hurt when I move certain ways. Unfortunately, because it’s my back, I can’t lift any weights! So now I can’t exercise at all!
Luckily because I did so well last week, I did drop 2.2 pounds, so I’m at least on the right path. Hopefully I can keep things under control for the next week so that despite my inability to exercise, I will still lose weight. (Or at least maintain if that’s all I can do).
