  1. It's been forever since I've posted here! I'm down fifteen pounds, down to 32% bf, training for a 5k (walking so far), and off one medication. I had to switch things up quite a bit, but think I've found the right plan for me.
  2. Blood work tomorrow and stomach bug today (thanks, kids). PT and walking today.
  3. Still a a 7-8/10 pain level, dang it, but keeping positive and motivated. Diet is 80% of it, so if I keep that in check while I'm limited, it'll work out.
  4. Jumps in pain level. On average I'm at a 3-4 on a scale of 10 daily. Lately it's been 8-9/10 thanks to a flare up.
  5. Rooting for you. Flares take me out for days at a time, dangit.
  6. Pain kicked my butt this past week. I'm limited to pt and walking for the most part. As much as I'd lik o go hard, I know I can't right now. So I'm going to follow orders and do what needs to be done. Dangit. Peace.
  7. Pain level and stiffness level are high. I'll know for sure if there's a pinched nerves in my cervical spine soon. I do know the degeneration is spreading and I am not amused. Walking, yoga, and pilates are in the plans this week, and lower body work in two days,
  8. It's great to see you, Karen! Thanks! When the pain is down, I'm busy, but oh man do I crash when it's up.
  9. You're welcome, Dylan. I do the same thing. I think I've got a standard menu down so I don't always post it. In general, breakfast - shake or fried rice lunch - shake (if I didn't have it for breakfast), sandwich and veggies, or soup and salad for lunch dinner - lots of veggies and either beans or sweet potato on the side Gluten and sodium intake are way down and produce is way up. It's what works for me. Peace
  10. Pain is high still, so Sunday is yoga day. On Saturday I pushed through and worked my legs. I went with 20 pounds since my back was also off. 3 sets of 12 each: standing calf raises seated calf raises seated leg curls leg extensions leg press body weight squats O the plus side, 3 pounds and a few inches down this week. Sweetness!
  11. Yoga and pilates today. Pain is at 8/10 today - a sure sign to dial it back a notch.
  12. Wednesday was a rest day and I really needed it. Back and biceps today; 3 sets of 12 each: wide grip lat pulldown one-armed dumbbell row seated cable rows underhand cable pulldowns alternate dumbbell curls one arm preacher curls standing bicep curls Followed this with yoga and will get another yoga session tonight. Gotta stay flexible.
