Day: The Gym Actually Happened

Originally posted on Snacks n The City:
16 weeks down the line and I finally make it to the gym. It’s not my first time… I managed it the first time about a month ago. And here I am now, weeks down the line, and I made it again. Yes, you might find the long delay between my visits are laughable, but the point is. I’ve been. Woah there, ease up on the celebratory back patting guys.  I’d dabbled in a few workouts at home. The odd Barre workout, long power walks with the Mini one, a spot of Pilates and Yoga or even a few weights here and there, but time to step it up a level.

It’s a simple science to my goal. It’s worked before, it’ll work again. Watch me go!

Day 39: Upper Back Pain and Continual Headache

For the second night in a row, I passed out on my futon. When I woke up, my neck was killing me. 12 hours later, it’s still bothering me. In fact, it’s so sore that I’d willingly drop $70-$100 for a professional massage. I tried a hot shower, I tried yoga, I even tried neck massages. They helped a little, but my entire neck is still full of knots. I tried a variation of yoga videos today. I was having a hard time getting into them. This Yoga for Neck Relief was interesting, but I couldn’t relax. It was a “silent” yoga theme, so i had to constantly stop and look at the video to find out what I was doing next. It was a bit of a disappointment. I started the yoga for headaches video, but my allergies were having none of it. Finally I settled on this yoga for upper back video. It did help somewhat, but didn’t focus exclusively on my neck. I probably should have just…
