So the last months were not exactly good for me. In fact, they went rather badly.
I got persistent back pain for 2 weeks at the end of February and after a few investigations, I found out that I have a condition called spina bifida occulta – not very dangerous, just causing miss-alignments in my spine. The doctor recommended that I should not lift weights any more, but definitely lose weight. Yeah, that’s so nice – stop my training but lose weight.
Then I tried to learn to bike. Long story short, I fell with my bike into a ditch and my hand in now in a sling. I have hairline fracture in my shoulder. And the back-pain is back, I also hurt my back in the accident.
So yeah, 2016 – not the best year for me, health wise.
I failed at losing weight, I failed at keeping up with my training, I failed at writing on this blog.
And even if I can find some sort of excuse, that I wasn’t my fault, I just had bad luck, that still doesn’t change anything. My weight is unchanged from the beginning of the year and my vitality and energy are at an all time low.
There’s nothing to it but get back on the metaphorical bike (I won’t be getting on an actual bike for quite a while. A long, long, long while). I can’t help but play with the cards I’m dealt. If I can’t train I’ll walk. If I can’t lift weights I’ll eat better. If I can’t cook for myself right now I’ll order salads. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. But I will never give up.
