A Minor Set Back

So...as easy as I went with the weights yesterday (baby 5lb-ers), my neck/shoulder/arm problem is rearing its ugly head today. I am a little down about this, because 1) the strengthening execises weren't that strenuous so it is a reminder of how weak my injury has made me, and 2) I don't want to throw my weekly goal out the door. I will just have to breathe, regroup, and think of what modifications I can make. Maybe use soup cans for a few days instead of weights, maybe skip the little push up interval. I know I can at least continue with the power walk regimen. I have to choose not to let this minor set back get me down!

  1. Sorry to hear about your set back. Maybe it'll brighten your day to know that you inspired me today.

    I did not want to exercise when I got home from work... I was not planning on going to the gym. I was not even debating whether or not to work out. It just wasn't happening. Then I remembered you and your goal to MOVE at least once a day and, by golly, it motivated me to put on my sports bra, gym shoes (and some other clothing too) and I hit the elliptical machine!!! Now I feel great and I'm so proud of myself for working out! Thanks, BB30!!!
