I still have neck pain that is keeping me from lifting because I don't want to make it worse. Considering this is how I injured it to begin with I think it's the right choice.

I've been eating OK, and in fact I'm trying to dial my eating in more than usual since I'm not getting the workouts in.

I rode my bike to work on Friday, and for a short ride over the weekend, but once again, the neck is an issue and I'm afraid that whatever I do will make it worse.

So really, all I feel like I can do right now it monitor my food intake and try to maintain. It's pretty frustrating because I'd much rather be exercising.

That's all I've got right now. Hopefully someone soon I can get active again and maybe even set some fitness goals.

My neck my neck!

So apparently I pulled something in my neck lifting a few weeks ago. For the third time now, I have a dull pain in my neck that lasts for a few days. Last Sunday I went bowling and made it even worse. It sucks!

I've never been to a chiropractor in my life but the pain was becoming unbearable so I decided to give it a try last night. He put me on a table and cracked my neck.

It immediately felt better but this morning it hurts just as much as it has all week.

This sucks!

So that has been hampering my workouts. I got a 4 mile run in Monday morning in the rain, but I skipped lifting. I also havent been on my bike for a week because it's been raining non stop. It's really kinda depressing.

I havent weighed myself for about a week, but I have been watching my food intake fairly closely so I don't think that I've put on weight or anything. That said I do need to get back on the scale.

Right now my first priority is just getting better though.

So I guess this is a warning, be careful, especially when lifting with free weights. I think what I did was rush through my workout and I got sloppy and ended up injuring myself.

Here's to better days.
