Since last week, I have lost 2 pounds and 1/2 inch in my waist. I am perplexed as to how this happened because I managed to skip my workout 2 days in a row and I haven't been eating all that great considering we went to a wedding on Saturday and then had a barbeque with Pat's family on Sunday. I have been eating quite a bit of cake, cupcakes, and other unhealthy snacks, but so far it hasn't come back to haunt me. I guess that's the beauty of working out! I did make up for one of my workouts on my day off (yesterday) but my back has been hurting lately.
Today we stopped by my parent's house since they were nice enough to let us borrow their car over the weekend, we went over to their house to return it. While we were there, my dad decided to show me his new "toy" which is a "table" for lack of a better word where you strap your feet in and then it tilts you upside down and it is supposed to stretch out your back and alleviate any discomfort. It DEFINITELY helped! It was kind of scary considering it doesn't slowly flip you upside down, it goes pretty fast once you lift your arms up. Needless to say I was able to do my workout today without any lower back problems, so all is good in the land of the Mahoney's!
