I am so excited, I am FINALLY not hurting in my hips. BAMMM!
I took my crippled self back to Dr.Bose last week, and he basically told me that the pain/butt annoying pain was due to some sciatic nerve pain from my lack of cartilage in my lower vertebrae. So before doing an MRI, we decided to try the steroid pack route. 4 days in and I am starting to feel so much better. I was even able to run 8 miles yesterday with Melanie. They may have been slow miles, but mileage is mileage. Right?
This morning I headed over to Coastline Crossfit with my coach Jennifer. I have been doing her ONRAMP class for a couple of weeks now and I LOVE it. However my back and hips have really bothered me. Today I was able to do Thrusters with a deep squat. I have been hurting for so long that now its like a whole new experience. It was awesome. I also did a couple TRX moves. I love that thing.
After Crossfit, I came home and made a shake with Klean Athlete pure whey protein. I mixed it with 1/2cup of Silk Pure Almond unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1/2 cup of the Dark Chocolate Silk Almond milk. (160 calories, 13 carb, 22 protein) It is soo good.
I also took some pics of my shoulders and arms, I am very happy how my arms are looking. I think it is the pushups and pullups in Crossfit that are really helping with definition.
