I woke up this morning in SERIOUS pain. While lying down, if I use my legs to turn over my traps SCREAM so loudly it makes me nauseous. If I use my arms to push up, the same thing. Once I’m up & out of bed I’m pretty much okay. I have a stiffness but not the pain. While driving I keep my hands at 10 & 2, I get more pain but not the screaming kind. With this I have a low grade headache that gets a little worse with some movements (not all but turning of my neck to certain angles).
I’ve taken some prescription strength naprosyn. We’ll see if it helps at all.
Needless to say I did not go to the gym this morning. I didn’t think it would be a good idea to lift anything today.
I’m frustrated as hell because I’m making gains in strength & body comp. The scale is down about ½ lb so far this week & I don’t want to lose that. I want this pretty badly at this point. I’m a bitch & want to prove that it can be done at any gym. I am not looking for a setback & this is feeling like it might be one. It hurts; physically & emotionally.
From the emotional point, I know this means I MUST be on top of my gain with my nutrition. I cannot let it slip at all. I am ready for that. I’ve got it under control. On the positive side of that I have my meals planned out for the weekend. I know what I’m eating. I’m going to drink lots & lots of water. I am not going to gain any weight back this weekend.
I’ve got it under control – I hope.
