I thought it would be fun because it is a competition. I thought there would be friendly banter between the two teams, but we have all be so nice and encouraging, it's sickening. Ok, no it is not really sickening, just kidding, but you know what I mean.
I did really well this week. In fact, I would of had a perfect week if it hadn't been for Monday. Not sure why Monday was so bad, but it was. I only had 3 of the 6 meals, didn't finish my 3 liters of water and did not exercise. I finished the day with only scoring 58 points out of 100. I was so mad at myself, I decided that the rest of the week had to be perfect. It was not easy but I did it. Not sure how it will help the team. I haven't seen the new totals yet but I am hoping to come out in the lead. We have been trailing for the first two weeks, and I really want to win.
Come on team, we can do this! Rah, Rah, Rah and so on...
Now on to my visit at the doctor's today. I have degenerative disc disease. This is no surprise as I already saw the MRI results. We are going to do PT for the next 6-8 weeks, which is exactly what I was hoping for. As angry as I was, I now am starting to feel better mentally. I am sure PT will work for me without any drastic measures, such as surgery. My first PT session is Thursday and I am a little excited to go. I am so looking forward to feeling better and be able to stand straight when I wake up.
The bad news is no running. The doctor I am seeing is also a runner and she says I will run again. Just give it a little time to heal and feel better and all will be good. She encouraged me to learn to swim, as that is great exercise for your back. So, that is on my list of things to take care of this week. Sign up for swim lessons.
So all in all, I am in a good mood. This crazy diet is almost done and I see a light at the end of the tunnel with this injury. It is only gonna get better from here, I just know it.
Run strong, think big!
