Battle of the Blogger Butts


Well another week has passed in the world famous Battle of the Blogger Butts challenge..and again it has been an interesting one for me......

As you know, I basically wrecked my lower back and so this week I have done no exercise as recommended by my physio...

Instead I have been stretching, stretching and stretching several times a day and my back has definately improved. No more muscle spasms or shooting pain around my arms and legs each time I move....

I have been to physio twice this week and I have promised to stretch my back every day of my life from now on...it really does make a difference.

I plan to start doing my walks again beginning tommorrow and get back to the gym when the kids start school the following week.

On the diet side, well...umm..that hasn't gone too well either. The floods have cut off deliveries of fresh milk (for protein shakes) fresh vegies and fruit and meat, so I've been basically living off too much bread, and whatever else we could buy during this shortage.

I've had some chicken kiev, packet rice (the horror) and some vegies that I already had so my healthy diet has not been so healthy....

That will also change from now.

So as I gathered my wits to jump on the scales this morning, I didn't expect a big weight loss, if any at all.....

Last Saturday I weighed 69.7

During the week my weight went from 69.7 to 70.0 to 69.4

And this morning I weighed 69.9.....

So after my crappy non healthy week I've put on 200 grams, which I'm totally ok with because I wasn't focused....and I didn't go back to the 70's which is very comforting.

I hope our participants had an awesome week and I can't wait to read about everyones progress.

200g doesn't count - so at least your weight hasn't changed during your forced rest...so that's a positive :-)

200g is nothing.

You've done well with being injured and distracted to stay stable.

Blame it on the weather! And keep going. I'll just follow progress rather than take part in it!

Its so hard to watch your food when you run out of fresh things to have. I think you've done very well for living on leftovers and out of the pantry!
