Several days of following my exercise plans with my shiny new Polar and BAM! The back goes out again. There's a lesson here, which I will learn. As soon as I can walk upright.
On the diet scene, I blew that off the minute an emotional upheaval hit the house, following the back thing. It has been a giant roller coaster that I sincerely don't want to get on again. Silver lining: I'm NOT an emotional eater! Not in the least bit. I had to make myself eat things so I could take Advil. Still, not worth the ride, but good to know I'm not going to balloon in weight after this week.
Lesson Learned: Sometimes, you just don't get to be the master of your universe. Get over it.
