(Horizontal scar on my stomach is from having Melanoma (skin cancer) cut out of my skin in 2006. The vertical lines are, unfortunately, stretch marks)
Neck feels about the same — a little bit better than when it happened, but still not “fixed” yet. I think I might have to be out of the gym for more than the planned 1 week, and that really sucks. On the flip side, I need it to get better and heal up so that I don’t re-injure it and can move forward faster (instead of going back early, and it causing more problems). Of course, like everything, we’ll see how it goes. I go back to the chiropractor on Friday, and already have appointments set up for both the following Monday and Wednesday.
Exercise for yesterday was 1 hour of walking outside around my neighborhood. Again, there was no abdominal work, because I didn’t want to place any strain on my neck issue. I’m not sure if I will be able to do any walking today, I actually have a bunch of things I need to get done. (car needs new tires, and roommate and I have to go through all of our stuff stored out in the garage)
Sometimes, it’s just about doing the best you can, with what you’ve got. I really hate not being in the gym and lifting and trying to get better and better, but I can’t do that at the moment, I need to chill out and heal up.
Food for yesterday was the last of the rotisserie chicken, so breakfast was 7 ounces of rotisserie chicken with 7 Tbsp of guacamole. My second meal was the same thing. I didn’t cook anything last night, so I will do that tonight for the coming up week! My last meal was a frozen wild blueberry heavy cream protein shake, with almonds and cinnamon.
Water intake was about 4.5 Liters, and my weight stayed the same today. OK, off to go get things done!
