I’ve been having a rather crappy week :/. I came to the conclusion today that I’m just going to have to take a few days off from working out. It’s completely devastating to me. It’s like I lost a body part. It feels wrong….but my back has been getting progressively worse. I saw a physical therapist twice this week which has been helping, but my body seems to be rebelling and in order to completely heal I think it’s just better to take it easy.
I feel depressed about it, especially with the holidays it’s not like I’ll exactly be consuming my normal amount of calories. I also started to feel like I was coming down with something today- GREAT just in time for my week off and Christmas. Perfect!
Anyway, I’ll stop my pity party and move on to a more positive note- the delicious breakfast I made myself this morning!
