So yeah, my back still hurts. It sucks. I went to the massage lady, she pinpointed it alright. She was massaging and rubbing and got to it, I flinched and she said "It's alive isn't it?" She couldn't have put it a better way. I don't know what else to do about it, I don't want it to get worse and if it just sits and hurts all the time, then it's not getting better.
Acupuncture? Anyone? Would that help something like this?
Anyways, no more P90X, I guess I'm just too old.
So, I've been running a bunch more, on the treadmill for now - and walking. I walk really fast on that thing, like the professional walker people.
And then I do pilates or some weights. Generally I've been treating myself really well, hoping the pilates would help build up that muscle. But...still hurts. Ergh.
On Monday I downloaded a food diary app for my IPHONE. I've been hearing all my life that I should keep a food diary, but it's just so handy on the iphone, I didn't do it until this week.
What a revelation man. Seriously. It makes me much more conscious about what I'm eating and then, AND THEN, I found myself wanting to lie to it! Oh, I don't need to put that cookie on there....not really...
Like, um, WHO AM I LYING TO? Who am I trying to impress? It just really reiterated that my food consumption is about something else altogether.
It helps, it really does. I've been even or under since I started and it has literally stopped me from eating too many cookies. I have someone to answer to now...
I'm so old.
