#Mamavation Monday - MRI Says...
MRI results are in! Why is taking so long to heal? Herniated disk. That's right and even better I have had it since last year. So what? Well this means that most likely I was doing the #100 Day Burpee Challenge, Taebo, Running 5ks and 10ks and doing Crossfit while I had this. I don't want to dwell on how this was missed because I was being treated during this time. I feel like I did everything that I was suppose to, but you can't out stretch or out massage a herniated disk. So what's next? That's a great question. I'm going to have more traction sessions and then as a last resort we talk about surgery. This has been really hard news to hear but at least I know I'm not crazy. I plan to be out there kicking A$$! as my doctor says. Just one day at a time. I'm cleared for walking, swimming, stationary bike and upper body work. My trainer has a plan for me. I just have to take it slow because I really want to heal. Wish me luck ladies. In the meantime I'm cheering for all of you and your success! They also found a cyst on my kidney. Interesting. It's a lot to absorb in one day. I'm going to go rearrange my kitchen now.
I feel like I have pretty much made it and I feel good about the success.
There are lots of questions that I have been asked.
Do you have more energy? I'm not sure because after purchasing that Fitbit Ultra and finding out that I'm averaging 2-4 hours of sleep per night I'm not the person to ask. I think if I could get more sleep I would feel great. Lately something switched in my body and I can't get enough water! It's all I drink. It's the craziest thing.
Will you stay on it? I think that I will stay mostly on it. I'm not sure how to introduce foods back in to my diet or even if I want to. I'm not sure what my body is going to respond.
The long term goal 37 pounds by the end of the year.
The short term goal lose 3 lbs. per month.
