Battle of the Blogger Butts Week 4
Here are some words to describe my week.
Disc Disc Disc!
So you can see that I decided to have a CT Scan on my back as I was in pain and even the stretching wasn't helping.
I have discovered that I have two disc bulges and there is no space between my lowest disc and my tailbone (and there should be space), so I kinda have bone against bone.
No wonder I'm pissed off and cranky.
I'm like a dog with a sore foot. Don't bother talking to me, I'll chew your head off..
I'm glad in a way that I have found out that there is a problem and I know where to go from here.
I know that I will need to stretch and strengthen for the rest of my life.
I know that I need to do pilates which is great for core strength.
I know that I need to buy a fitball and sit on it.
I know I have to go to physio and let Ben deep tissue massage the crapola outa my back.
I know that this is something that I now have to live with and adapt to.
I know that my focus is shifted from high impact, quick weightloss to slow and steady weight loss, and core strengthening to protect my back.
I know I can't put on weight (thanks Doc) and I have to find my stomach muscles to again protect my back.
I know I have to remember my posture and walk and stand as if I have a pole stuck up my bum. Seriously.
So my weight loss is:-
Start 70.5 kg
Week 1 69.7 kg
Week 2 69.9 kg
Week 3 69.3 kg
Week 4 69.9 kg
Here's hoping I have some better news next week. I'm so happy to have you guys to motivate me because I probably would have given up by now because of my stupid back...
