This week has been hell.
I seriously jacked my neck on Saturday, and for some reason thought that the power sculpt class on Monday would loosen my shoulders up. Ha. I've been out of commission for 2 days now and counting....5 if you count all the days previous to Power Sculpt. Today I finally decided to go see a doctor. I wanted to see an acupuncturist, but don't know any in the area, and as a body worker myself (massage therapist), I would never go see someone without a referral. Especially an acupuncturist. I don't want to pay someone money to stick needles in me who doesn't know what they're doing, even if they are the little bitty ones that acupuncturists use. So I took a referral to go see a chiropractor.
Not to mention, my friends and I have been eating like queens these last few days. On Monday I went shopping with my roommate to get healthy food- and since my neck is killing me in five places, I've opted to eat whatever is easiest. Which means either whatever NR brings home for me to eat, or whatever I can just put in my mouth and not have to make first. AND I haven't been working out, so I haven't been really hungry. So all of the calorie laden food I've been pigging hasn't been getting burned off. I'm a HOT mess. This morning the scale showed a 6.5 pound gain (since May). I can tell. And I want to do something about it, I really do. The sad thing is I don't have energy to do anything but lay in bed and feel the death pain of my neck and head (the headaches that accompany this neck pain are ridiculous- behind the eyes and sharp. UGH). I've been popping pills like crazy but nothing seems to be making a dent in this death.
Tonight i'm taking a hot bath and going to bed early. I'm praying to wake up tomorrow without a headache. If I can wake up without a headache and can actually move a little, I will be so happy because that means i can get back on my wagon to health. All I want to lose is the 6.5 I've gained at this point. I don't even care beyond that right now. It's reasonable to be able to do that before Vegas, isn't it???
PS- there are several new commenters that have mentioned that they either have left an award for me on their blog, or have commented on my blog and I went to read their blog, and I could not get on because their blogs are private (which also means I cannot comment on your blog either). :) Thank you for the awards and the kind words. If you are one of these people, please know I would love to read your blog. If you would like to send me an email and give me permission (or whatever it is you do on a private blog to allow readers), I would love it. If not, know I still appreciate every comment you have made and love your support. Thank you!!!!
