Update for the week

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).


  1. Nice on the weight loss and keep up the exercise!

  2. WHOOO HOOOO! YAY! Good for you at keeping on track even though you were sick. Great work! Keep it up, babycakes!

  3. I am sorry about your back. That is horrible!! At least you know you're on the right track with your eating since you lost 2.2 lbs. That is fabulous, particularly this time of year with all of the temptations around.

    I hope you are well enough to enjoy the holidays.
