I did try to push past some of the back pain earlier last week and tried to get light workouts in. I have found if I am moving at a certain level the back seems to allow me to do it.
I even got 10,000 steps in on Tuesday, and I haven't pushed through to do that in a while, it felt good.
I gave a few mini workouts a go earlier in the week, but by the end of the week the inflammation was too bad so I didn't get anything in on Thursday- Saturday.
But hey, it's a start and a little is better than none!
I am trying to look to the positive about having to lay around a little way too much. The positive is, I've been reading some GREAT books lately. Catching up on some recommendations that others have given me. I realized this morning, I've already read 5 novels this year and it's only the 11th. I am telling myself to enjoy it while I can!
I do have a funny story to share.
I was working at a library the other day, and I was checking a book a gal had dropped through a book drop. (We can't see on the other side of the wall.) I noticed an envelope in it, so I pulled it out. It was a Walmart photo envelope.
But it felt thin, so I thought I'd open it just to see if it was just papers and I could toss it.
Imagine my surprise when I saw some girls naked selfie pics.
I literally yelled YIKES and threw them down, LOL
Yes everyone, WORST IDEA EVER FOR A BOOK MARK!! Do not use your NAKED SELFIE PICS as a bookmark. Because everyone forgets to remove their bookmarks!
I tried calling the girl, to let her know she left her pictures. I thought that would be a fun awkward conversation for her, LOL (Yeah, doesn't bother me to put people in an awkward position, apparently, LOL)
But she didn't answer.
I am curious if she will actually come to get them. My guess is yes, because anyone who would take them and then get them developed, likely wanted them, LOL
I taped the envelope shut to avoid additional prying eyes, LOL.
She's just lucky I am not a FB bully. Because I guarantee if those got into the wrong hands. Or if I didn't find them, and some teen found them in the book when they checked it out next. They would show up on someones FB page as a laugh. So that girl is definitely lucky it was me who found them. Of course, I don't consider myself lucky, I really wished I hadn't opened the envelope to be honest. But either way, it was funny!
Last, I have been working on some diet changes. Major diet changes, which I will tell you about another time. But to point to this past weeks successes they are:
* I haven't drank a Pepsi or any soda in 7 days.
* I have been eating SO much healthier for 7 days now.
* I lost 5 pounds last week.
YAY, me, I have a long way to go, but it's a start!!!
I wish I had more to share, but that about does it. I know, I am leading a desperately dull life right now. But I have faith that after Thursday things will change on that front!
Because all this beautiful snow outside, has me wanting to go play in it!
I also just noticed this is my 600th blog post! Wow, that's a lot of writing!
What was the funniest thing that happened to you last week?
