Well I hope it's not to serious! I had a serious back injury last year. I know it can be a very difficult to handle and rehab. I wish you luck with it. :)

Good news is no fracture just some compression. Spent 2 weeks resting and finally started back to the gym yesterday. Doing daily yoga, 5k running training and some light lifting. Granted by the end of the day my back is a bit mad but I luckily have some pills left to help :)

That's good to hear, active recovery will be good and stop you going mad as well haha.

Easy on those pills though !!

Only use the pills at night if I hurt. I am not a big fan of medication unless I am uncomfortable enough I can't sleep

Glad to hear your back injury isn't too severe. Rest up, take your time and heal, then get back to epic deadlifts!

Done resting back to my lifting. Not at the epic weights yet but ya know I really didn't lose that much strength yay! However my huge problem is that with others buying me food my choices haven't exactly been vegan.... Still vegetarian but far from vegan. Still not working and not sure when the dr will allow me so looking at a career change. I gotta get some money coming in so I can buy my food! Running dangerously low on the items I was able to buy before I got hurt... Today was the first day back to heavier weights not Barbie weights... BTW my old clothes are starting to fit again! Liking the weight loss and keeping my strength :)

Been doing some serious thinking about my goals for next year as this year is coming to a close faster than I want. I have decided that next year will be my year :) Going to do several mud runs and quite possibly stepping on stage loose skin and all :)

Feeling pretty blah lately. Need some major fun. Dealing with rumors at work about me and a guy in a different department... Looking at upping my cardio to twice a day. Still training hard and impressing a trainer. He was saying to train for push pull rather than bodybuilding lol. Oh the decisions I gotta make....

Is he cute? :wink:

You could train for push-pull and get your strength fix and then still go out on stage and look great. Just go for what makes you happy, and if it all makes you happy then do it all!

Ran my worst 5k to date but in my defense and I have to remind myself if this I do have a cold and laryngitis so a 46 min 5k isn't so bad. I have a month til the next run to feel better and I will be back under 40 min. Strength training even took a hit this week. Just happy I didn't make any excuses and just did it even though I shoul have rested.

So I didn't update when I did it but deadlifted 300 lbs for 2 reps and did 2 sets. Today I am watching a powerlifting meet held at my gym. Have already had 2 people tell me I need to get to training lol. I dunno honestly but open to opinions
