As many of you know I broke a bone in a my back on Sunday.
I had just put Hazel in her bed to sleep and I grabbed a blanket, my nail polish remover, and nail polish and headed downstairs to give myself a manicure and possibly take a nap on my husband. I had those fuzzy socks that moisturize your feet and carpet stairs. I busted it, hard. I knew immediately when I fell that I had done something bad to my back and I burst into tears. Jonathan ran over and I was just sobbing. He was trying to get my to tell him WHAT I hurt but I couldn't form words. It was that much pain. Eventually I calmed down enough to say "my back." So he helped me to the sofa and I just couldn't get comfortable so I hobbled/ he carried me up the stairs into my bed. He got me some ice and some Lortab that he had left over from his burns. They didn't even touch the pain. I tried to sleep but couldn't because I was so uncomfortable. I thought I had just pulled a muscle and that it would feel better. Well Tuesday morning I woke up feeling the SAME pain as Sunday so I knew something was wrong. I went to the doctor and he took some X Rays and my Transverse Process bone is broken. It was clear as day on the X-ray. My heart sank. I knew what this meant.
I'm not going to lie. I almost started crying in the room.
He said that once the pain stops then I can walk on the treadmill.
Walk... are you joking? Then in 6-8 weeks I have to go back and "get cleared" before I can do any strenuous exercise.
I am heartbroken.
I have been working out 6 days a week for 2 months and now I'm not going to be able to WALK for at least another week, if not 2.
So I haven't been able to move other than go to the bathroom and go from the bed to the sofa since Sunday. Despite that I have been eating well. I met a new friend in Body Step (Hi Missy!) about a month ago and we just clicked. I love those kinds of friendships, that just are effortless. She has a 3 year old son who she stays home with so she gets me. Anyway, she brought us dinner last night and was thoughtful enough to make it a healthy meal. I am going to be burning very minimal calories and she is so thoughtful to make us a healthy and hearty meal that the whole family just loved. I am so thankful for her.
So, I'm supposed to be going to another doctor tomorrow to get pain medicine but I just called to see if there is anyway they can call me some in because I'm in so much pain and can hardly sleep.
Now on to what you're all here for!
Starting Weight: 230.4
Last week: 214.4
I was SO surprised to see that. That's basically nothing. I literally haven't been able to move since Sunday AND it's shark week. I thought for sure I had gained at least 3 pounds.
I am so happy.
The best snuggle bug. We're just two girls with broken backs :(
But all I gotta say is you girls better kick-butt on your exercises. You guys know I loved my exercise. I am going to be lost without. So every time you don't feel like working out, you better think of me and get your butt to the gym! I would be there if I could!
