I am not sure what is the cause of this pain in my lower back. I suspect either moving furniture or trying a new oblique machine at the gym this week. After a heating pad and a liberal dose of ibuprofen last night, I am doing better today. Hope to be able to run tomorrow.
You know, I have been trying to talk myself into getting hyped up about weight loss again. It's just not working. I am out of the really bad place I was a week or so ago, but I am still struggling to get back on top of my game.
This weekend I happened upon a story told by Patsy Clairmont. This is about her son, Jason:
When he was 7, I sent him off to school one day and a little while later there was a knock at the door and I opened the door and it was Jason.
I said 'Jason, what are you doing here?'
He said, 'I've quit school!'
I said, 'Why have you quit school?'
He said, 'Well, it was too long, it was too hard, and it was too boring.'
I said, 'Son, you've just described life. Get back on the bus!'
It's time to pull up my big-girl panties and GET BACK ON THE DANG BUS. Enough already! No more whining. No more pep talks. No more excuses.
Just me and the bus.
