Rest Works!

REST works! It have to admit that it is needed from time to time….especially when injury is involved.  My back/sciatica is getting better because of rest and my aggressive attention to rest, posture, nutrition and icing.

Yesterday I added 2 new supplements to my intake:

1 a new joint supplement that has vitamin D3 in it!

And I started up on 6 star creatine punch

Plus…I got some more vitamin C…

And I’ve had less pain today than I have in a couple months!! YAY!!  I’ve also been praying.

Do you ever consider praying for God to Bless your workouts?  We typically say a blessing for our food (if you don’t do that…start ASAP!), so why not for our workouts?? I am going to really push into my prayer life because it works!!  I’m gonna pray for you more too!!!

Well, I am off to hit the kitchen and then GO!! It’s a beautiful day here to be outside!

Love ya,

Michelle

p.s. I’m trying hard to post my food

So far…

PPP-egg whites, deli turkey, taco beef
CCC- Cutie orange, Creatine Punch drink, vorn chips
F-olives, a few Cashews, a tish of shredded chesse and asian dresing
GGG-Brocolli Slaw, salsa
T-cream and sugar in coffee

Pickles & Peanut Butter!

Pickles and Peanut butter!! have been a consistent snack of mine these past few days…it’s so YUMMY!! You must try it!!
Anyhow…I am FREE!! My kids went to school Monday~ yay!! I just love the peace and quiet. I even took a nap – I came home from dropping the kids off, did a load of dishes, cooked myself 4 sunny side up eggs and some sausage, then SNUGGLED in for a 2+hour nap! It was the BEST way to start this week!!!
I’ve determined that my back/butt/sciatic issue may actually be a bulging disc issue…I didn’t think it was at first due to my butt muscles being so tight- BUT now that the injury is older and my symptoms fit, disc issues seem to make the most sense. I’ve been in a lot of pain for over 2 months now with this nerve issue and It’s affecting my entries life. With that realization and REGRET, I am going to be taking it REALLY EASY on my workouts for the next several weeks. I plan to take many days off entirely- I feel REST is the only way for me to heal
I hate to have to take time off not so much because I love to workout (I don’t actually like working out); I just HATE the thought of losing my current fitness level. I hate the “starting over” stage of working out. It makes me so sore and tired, etc… Avoiding that pain is huge reason why I consistently get my workouts DONE!
At least for the moment I have can celebrate the fact that I hit my end of Buffing Goal- I weighed 125 this morning!! It’s cycle day 17 and I’m going to start Boosting immediately (more in my diet and supplement routine- as I am NOT going to be working out much). I am going to take CREATINE again as it has really seemed to help my back in the past.
here are the list of nutrients I WILL take to help me heal also:
Creatine
NOXS- AKG form of l-arganine
L-glutamine
Vitamin D3
Vitamin C
Acidophilus
Enzymes
Calcium
Boosting Pill
Multi- Adult Chewable
Move-Free by Shiff (Joint Supplement)
Sam-E
Fish Oil (anti-inflammation)
Vitamin E
DHEA
Sodium (sea salt)-3 1/8tsp daily with water to help hydration
Wow…that’s quite a list, but I am DETERMINED to get this back healthy and KEEP it healthy!
I’m going to miss finishing the “Just Do It” contest with you…but I expect we’ll repeat the contest in the future…maybe this summer- and I’ll be HEALTHY for it that time!
My DH is home (an is EXHUASTED) from his hunting trip to MN. He WALKED a ton on DEEP snow trying to kill some Coyotes and Fox. NO LUCK though- he thinks the snow was too deep…But he still had a blast. Today is his 40th Birthday~
We are going to HANG out all day. I plan to give him a lot of LOVE AND probably go bowling too…that should be fun!
I’ve already cooked him eggs for breakfast in bed…just waiting for him to wake up…And I’ve been baking chocolate cup cakes. I plan to make a “40” design with them
AND in other “Gifts” I’ve been painting while he’s gone. I painted our room a nice aqua blue and got some new curtains. It looks great! I’ll take some pictures for you soon.
But for now~ I am OUTTA HERE! Have a great day, see ya tomorrow!!
