Sigh

Today's Weigh-In: 206.0 lbs.
5-Day Average: 205.73 lbs.

Arg. It looks like I'm not going to hit my goal this month. I would have to lose 6 pounds in 8 days to do so. This is extremely frustrating, because I've been kinda stuck around the same weight for a month. I haven't been able to exercise since my last post due to the pain in my neck. I used a foam roller to try to get the knots out, which helped a bit, but I really need professional help, so I'm going to the chiropractor again tomorrow. It's just so frustrating to be continually getting these small injuries that force me to lay off exercising for a week at a time. Add to that the fact that I didn't get a chance to go shopping for almost a week, and was forced to eat the crappy food that was the only thing in my house, and it's a recipe for failure. Thankfully I went shopping yesterday and stocked up on my healthy essentials, so my eating is back on track. Hopefully I can get back on track with working out after tomorrow, because my back/neck are killing me and nothing I have done has fixed it. I'm considering buying a new pillow, because the one I have now sucks balls and I wake up stiff and sore every day. Sigh. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to chock this month to the history books and keep moving forward as best I can.

I totally hear you about the pillow. I had a "ball sucker" one awhile back and it kept giving me the worst headaches and neck pains.

Don't stress too much about not hitting your goal this month. It is a marathon and not a sprint. A war consisting of multiple battles. You may have dropped this battle due to some bad luck, but I have a feeling that you are about to win a couple battles and forge ahead really soon.

maybe also consider lifting a little lighter. Maybe you are pushing too hard if you continue to get little injuries. just don't like seeing a fat brother laid up with injuries, take care man

man, it seems as though you got the injury bug. I hope you get over that as soon as possible.

The more and more I read your blog and you comment on mine it seems as though we are the same person (only you're in better shape). It's funny, and your success helps me out man. good job on restocking the foods.
