White Chocolate Almond Protein Oats

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!

    Ahh go for walks!! Those are just as good and not demanding on the body! I hate feeling off with workouts, and I always walk when I do. The oats look GOOOOD!

    Sorry about the back pain 🙁 certainly no fun. My mom (a long distance runner for 30 years) has dealt with back pain on and off her whole life, and she swears by stretching on those big exercise balls. Maybe worth a shot? On the plus side, your oatmeal looks fantastic!

    Don’t be sad! Honor your body and let your back heal. I know how frustrating it can be. I tore my ACL in my knee and had to have surgery and go for 3 months of physical therapy. Not fun. Listen to your physical therapist and you’ll be back to your workouts in no time! In the mean time, stretching and walking will do your mind and body good 🙂
