2 steps forward, 1 step back
Tuesday, June 09, 2015
After my last blog, June 1, I realized that my back didn't just hurt, it HURT. So I've been trying to stretch it out and keep moving, but it's still really sore and I haven't been able to do too much exercise. Last weekend I did walk all over the horse expo, and then we built a round pen for my horse. That meant lots of heavy lifting and walking and using power tools, and a wee bit of a sunburn. Then I took Shasta out in the round pen and discovered that he a) does not lunge; b) panics at the sight of a lunge whip; and c) is perfectly happy to run in circles 100 times trying to get away, and then sprint up and down the field (frequently farting and neighing!) to emphasize his displeasure.
He's a handful!
So overall, I feel like I'm still working hard, I had one off plan meal this week, but it was Sunday night and I'm afraid it's still working its way through my system. It was high sodium, so it may set me back for tonight's weigh in. I hope not, but I haven't been perfectly OP all week either, so I was only going to have a small loss. Hopefully I'll still get something.
This coming week should be a bit easier, I'm going up to Tahoe with my husband and we're going to bike and swim and hike, it'll be great, even though we have to drive back down the hill and then up again for his granddaughter's graduation in the middle of it. It's fine though, I mean, she didn't choose to have the graduation this weekend, and we didn't choose the camping weekend (it was a pre-scheduled gift) and when we agreed to it, we didn't know about the graduation. Things happen.
The point is that we're going to be quite active and I'm only bringing food I can eat! :-)
