Broken Beej?

So, I may have hit my limit.  I'm not sure.  Yesterday, though, I "came down" with a sore back yesterday--it might just be my body telling me to relax.  It kinda threw a wrench into my workout plans.  I know that my eating was good yesterday (I forgot to take pictures): I had 2 1/2 small plates--not even close to what one of my former plates would have been--for dinner last night.  I was able to get some working out in yesterday (barely) and quite a bit in today (we walked 9.5 miles! to the local shopping mall and back), plus our date (we walked down to the theater and saw The Blind Side; I'm a sucker for sports movies and tear-jerkers, and this was both--highly recommend it!).  That being said, I think I'll probably gain this weigh-in.  I know I've said that before, but I'm pretty sure of it this week.  I think the main problem was that although I did change up my workout schedule, I didn't adjust my daily eating.  It's frustrating, because I know I should have done a better job of planning and making choices.  We'll have to see, though, where I stand tomorrow morning.

My BF was just reading Sports Illustrated and mentioned that we would have to see that movie. I love movies about football and if it is a tearjerker I can deal with that as we will watch it at home. I am very emotional and rarely watch movies like that at the theatre.

When we watched We are Marshall I completely lost it during a funeral scene as the boy had the same number shirt my son wears, not sure if you have seen his pic on my blog, but he is #29. Tough to watch.

I will look forward to your weight update, I see a loss...

Beej, if you gain this week, so what? You have had an awesome, truly AWESOME run. This week may not be what you wanted, but look at how different it is than the past. I have no doubt in my mind, this is only a minor blip on your radar.

That being said, you need to listen to your body. Change your routine up a little if you can. Don't push yourself to the point of injury. It isn't worth it.

beej, glad to read that you enjoyed your holiday. 9.5 miles?! Look at you go!

I hope your back is faring better today - listen to your body and don't overpush it. We don't want a broken beej!!!

(Here's hoping for a good weigh-in!)
