Monday Weigh in and a full nights sleep!

I finally got a full nights sleep in. Actually it was a lot more than a full night as I was in dreamland for a solid 11 hours. Man did I need that. Physically my back still hurts but mentally I am feeling much better.

Well it wasn't at all unexpected but for the first time since I started this blog I have a weight gain instead of a loss. Food wise I was good, but exercise and sleep were non existent this week. To top it all off one of the side effects for the pain killers I've been prescribed is weight gain. Hey thats just "GREAT.." (Yes, that was some Massive Marcus Sarcasm)

So I am UP 3 pounds this week. I do not like seeing that scale go the other way erasing some of the hard work that I've put in. What can I do except try to get better?

I don't like being at home like this. I look at my bike and wish that I could ride it. I went to the movies the other night with some friends just to get out of the house but I was uncomfortable in my seat and it ruined the movie for me. Remember how much I love golf? I've got all this time off work but I can't get out on the course. The golf swing is probably the worst thing I could do right now with my back. ARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!!

It's barely been a week so I have to be patient like my doctor says.

Keep on pursuing your goals my fellow bloggers.



  1. I can hear the fight in your voice. Good for you. You'll be back at it in no time. Embrace the sleep for now.

  2. Hand in there Marcus. This will get better. Have you thought about water walking or swimming? This can be the best sorts of exercise w/ back problems.

  3. BIG HUGS!! There is nothing you can do about the scale in your condition, mister. The best thing you can do for your health right now is to rest and recover. I know that totally sucks, but it is what it is. Keep hangin' tough, Eminem!
