So I feel my back today. I should have known I would. I was exhausted last night...we went to bed...TO SLEEP...at 9:30! 9:30!!! It's not the normal 'been worked out sore' feeling. It's inflamed. I've had 13 + years to understand my back. I knew there would be a possiblility of a flareup given the working out I'm doing, at the intensity I'm doing it. It COULD be worse, if I were still eating refined sugar. But happily, it's not as bad as it could be. However, I will need to Tylenol up before I attempt Legs & Back today. When my back gets like this, it feels feverish, and I'm wiped out. It's similar to how you feel when you get the flu, except it's in my back. What I would do BEFORE I became this strongly dedicated to fitness girl, would have been to stop the workout, and chill. But I'm not going to do that. I'm on a program, and that program shall go on. I will monitor what I do today...if it's something that will aggravate my back, I'll omit it....and that's all I can do. I'm going to 'do my best, and forget the rest'.
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
