I've been so good this week: went to the gym (to run on the elliptical for 45+ minutes each time) on Monday evening, Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, Thursday afternoon. And then last night while sitting in a chair, showing something to my friend, I just twisted the wrong way. Few people ever get to see me in acute pain. She had no idea what to do, but thankfully she didn't try to do anything. Breathe through it, try not to move, and then when the pain passes, ICE ICE ICE.
So no gym today. Heck, walking even hurts. Sitting hurts.
I hate it when life starts throwing curveballs.
But this is exactly what I always fear -- the more active I am the greater the chance of re-injuring my back.
I think that's the reason I think of getting a tummy tuck/lipo so frequently. I mean, how else am I supposed to lose the weight if I can't run, am not allowed to use weights, not allowed to twist. Even swimming and yoga hurt :(
