Well, my back is toast! I totally had a major flare up tonight, brought on by some stressful news. See, I aggravated my back by doing the Hyper-extension bench...which I thought would strengthen it...and under normal conditions, with a normal back, it would. But mine, I suffer from chronic back pain caused by a snowmobile accident 14 years ago...so mine is different. I should have left well enough alone...but Nooooo, I had to go and do that exercise, repeatedly. Well, tonight, I had such an attack, it affected my stomach, my digestive system, as well as the back. I had to go lay down. When it gets that bad, I can't tell if it's my stomach or my back until I lay still...and eventually, I feel it. I am so out of it, so ill, that I couldn't do my treadmill tonight. In fact, I struggled big time to get 20 minutes of X Stretch in...but I did it. I cannot break my streak. Just moving makes me want to be sick, and starts things rolling and just feel like a bag of crap. I'm a major hurtin unit tonight. Someone shoot me and put me out of my misery!
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.
