Weigh - in #5....
OK, it is a couple of days late, but I did weigh-in this morning. :-) Since I last weighed I have lost 8.2 lbs. That brings my total loss so far to 33 lbs. :-) I would be doing the happy dance, except my back hurts WAY TOO MUCH.
I really didn't think I had lost that much, because I didn't exercise at all last week. My sister was in the hospital for 4 days, and unfortunately I didn't make time for exercise with all of the other stuff I needed to do. It sure made me appreciate my Mom a lot more. She and I share the housework, cooking, etc. and I do all of the teaching. SO, I made some bad choices in trying to balance my time. I did stick to the food plan though, so that helped. :-) Before the diet it would have been SO MUCH EASIER to just order a pizza or something. :-)
I think I did too much on Monday morning trying to make up for the week of no exercise. So far I have tried Tylenol and Aleve. The Aleve worked better. I also tried DOANZ. That didn't really work. I bought some"white willow bark", and I know that works. It just hasn't "kicked in" yet. I also bought some Bio Freeze this morning. Hopefully the combination of the two will help. :-) Anyone have any other ideas I can try? I'll try almost anything if it helps my back stop hurting so I can SLEEP.
