Day 59: Insanity Challenge- BENCHED!

Oh, I have injured myself! MEDIC.

I woke up with a twinge in my lower back area yesterday morning. I took a little ibuprofen, did Insanity Max Cardio Interval Conditioning and my nemesis Cardio Abs, took a little more ibuprofen, went to work, came home. I don't remember if I took any ibuprofen when I got home, but I thought for sure that this twinge would release itself while I was sleeping.

And I woke up this morning and no, it is still here. Cue the ibuprofen.

I am sitting on my couch, alternating between my heating pad and a pack of frozen green beans. I am unhappy. I HATE being uncomfortable. And I hate that this is my LAST WEEK of Insanity, and I have managed to make it this far only to bench myself. I don't know if it will be just for today, or if tomorrow it will do this too?

C'mon lower back. Why are you being such a PUNK?

I am a big believer in listening to your body, working with it day after day, and not being a wiener. But this morning proves that I am not being a wiener, or a whiner, but a winner because I am not risking paralyzing myself to finish Insanity in accordance to the handy wall chart that came with it.

So, fingers crossed, I will be back in business by the weekend. Until then, it's heat, ice, and Housewives on the DVR. And a little stretching. . .


  1. Awww! Feel better. I'm glad you know when enough's enough. People like me should learn from you.

  2. Oh no, not the B word.

    Hope that you'll be feeling up to par soon.

  3. I hope you are feeling better!

  4. Buying stock in any ibuprofen companies yet? Glad you're resting it out. Feel better soon!!!

  5. Sometimes your body knows what's best. Hope you feel better soon! :)
