Default Heal thy self...

I was hoping to join TC11 to strive for my first pull up, after succeeding in my first chin up in TC9. Unfortunately my body has begun a bit of a rebellion and has derailed my plan. My right shoulder-neck area has been hurting for about a month now. Rotating right, left, forward and back causes some discomfort. But it is getting better. The real obstacle is my right knee. An on and off problem for ~2 years, on now for about 2 months. I can squat amd deadlift, but when I try to bend my heel to my butt I feel pressure and some pain. I know, go to the Dr. I will if I think I am doing more harm than good. I am going to try and fix this myself. I am also trying this product- http://www.losethebackpain.com/inflammation6.html

Regardless of my workout goals, diet is always my main roadblock. I have continued, mostly, to not eat after 9pm. I would like to move that to 8pm, but realistically I will shoot for 8:30pm. I am very guilty of "fasted yesterday, eat like crazy today" syndrome. Another habit I will strive to change. I had been consistently hovering at 128-129lbs, now I am at 131-132lbs. Doesn't read like much, but it is huge in my mind. Need to readjust that set point down. Would like to be at 126-127lbs. I continue to use ESE because I find IF refreshing and a great motivator.

My workouts will be dictated by how my knee progresses. I started 6 minute Abs yesterday and added static KB abs as I cannot swing. I tried TT Metabolic Resistance last week, and except for the MB chops, it felt OK, so I will probably go back to that next week.

My goal is to not gain any weight and to lose some body fat. Time to really work on my diet and the mental gymnastics that I put myself through. Official start date was yesterday May 24. Weight-131. I didn't take any measurements, I have calipers and will strive to get some baseline readings this week. Will have to go by pictures. Which are blury. Sorry.

Hi, Concetta, good luck losing those last lbs&performing your first pullup!!
Might I suggest mobility work, streching, foam rolling&massage? It helped me a lot when dealing with lower back pain!!
Have a great day!!
Ion

Hey Concetta, sorry to hear your body is rebelling! It's my brain that's always out to get me Have you tried yoga for lower back pain? I've found even a very gentle 10 minutes stops my back aching from sitting at my desk all day.

Ion, Clare-thanks for your suggestions. Lower back is OK, neck is more of a bother. Band pulls are helping. Need to get a foam roller. Knee is more problematic.
