But first, how my week went.
Honestly, I had a week that could really have gone either way. It started out really good, and on Wednesday I woke up with a gimpy hamstring and a bit of right back pain and that familiar little itch in the back of my throat. I was terrified I was getting sick right when things were falling into place.
I wasn't wrong. As Wednesday progressed, I started feeling worse and worse. Luckily, I was done work stupidly early and caught my coworker between clients to do some acupuncture on my back and hammy, some ART, and apparently put some ribs back in. I dragged myself home and did some cleaning, and proceeded to prop myself up on the couch for the rest of the night. Thursday rolled around and this happened:
Luckily, my recent bout of getting healthier seems to have done my immune system good and I've been feeling better since. Not perfect, but I got back into the exercise swing pretty easily.
*warning, underwear pics coming up*
I also have to say I'm finally seeing some changes over the last week or so. I haven't decided what this should be credited to. Taking out gluten? Upping protein? Being consistent with my workouts? All of the above (probably)?
The first picture is about 3 months apart, and the second is 1 month apart. The crazy thing to me, is that I've stopped using a calorie counter, stopped getting on the scale, and I've seen the most results in the last few weeks.
ENOUGH RAMBLING KELLY. What are your goals this week?
I actually only have one: Keep it up! I felt really good this week. Very balanced work, workout, life, etc wise and I need to keep it up. The next few weeks are going to prove a bit stressful so I just need to keep it going.
