This is extremely frustrating. I haven’t run since Saturday, yet here I am tonight in back pain again – bad enough that I took the Big Naproxen and a muscle relaxant. This, like my migraines, is something for which I’ve spent years trying to figure out the trigger to no avail. I’m starting to think that the trigger is breathing…
In other news, diet program is going great, super easy. Today I went for two walks – 30 minutes at lunch time and 45 minutes after work with my sweetie. I also spent some time this evening hunched over a puzzle on my dining room table, so maybe that wasn’t so good for my back? I find that I really enjoy puzzles, they give me something to do with my hands and quiet my racing mind, which has depressive tendencies if left to it’s own devices. So when I have nothing else I need or want or can think of to do, a puzzle is a really good distraction for me.
Tomorrow is the weigh in for this week, and then Thursday and Friday I’ll be on a business trip to Portland, Oregon, which will require some strategic packing for my food and exercise plan, as well as a bit of meeting food-dodging. I’ll be back Friday night and Saturday is the Dirty Girl 5K. I will probably run that regardless, because I don’t want to let the team down, and I have muscle relaxants for after.
