I had to take a little time off. Just continue to eat clean. Do not drown your sorrows in food or you will only disappoint yourself. I can feel your pain and know that it is difficult to even move when your inflamed. I was injured while visiting my daughter in Thailand and could barely understand the doctors as well. I stayed in bed with my remote, hardboiled eggs (from room service) bars that I brought from home and towels wrapped in ice. I was alone during the day and had to fend for myself as best as possible. I ended up reading the entire book, "Gone With the Wind", because the t.v. stations were limited in English. Surprisingly I healed rather quickly.
I have not done squats since. Stay positive, sleep well and god bless.
Keep going! You are obviously really working it. If you don't fully get rid of those love handles then remember that doesn't take away from how great you done and that this is Body-for-LIFE.

Just an update on my back. Its getting better... Too slowly for my liking but i can move a little more now. Im hoping by taking it easy this weekend ill be able to get back in the gym by Monday.
Ok, so for clean eating this past week i failed miserably!
Heading to gym this morning to work on upper body. Back is still not perfect but no pain when i move, sit or bend. Only painful when i stand up from sitting.
Hold thumbs it will all go well.
Realised i need the dissipline of exercise to keep me eating right. Also, i need it to be happy. Worst Christmas E V E R ! ! !
ok, so im in from my first post back problem gym session and i feel like a total wuss! My trainer wouldnt let me pick up any weights today. we did exercise with this green latex rubber matt thing: resistance training. Worked all the areas we were supposed to and let me tell you this wasnt easy! We did figure out though that i have no discomfort doing shoulders, chest, biceps or triceps. When doing dead lifts, my lower back started to pain. Just to see how things were we did some squats with the resistance band too. It was uncomfortable. So im hoping Wednesday ill be able to start using weights again. Just being in the gym motivated me so much again. Eating clean seems so easy now!!! Maybe i got the bodyforlife bug? But what am i going to do in active rest stage? I just want to get back to where i was. Im scared that this week i had off has blown the fuse for the 8 week miracle. Did i ruin it all by hurting my back??? Started sunbed today as well. At least i can look tan at the end of Jan when this challenge finishes. And then its up to me... No trainer, no help. Only me and what ive learned. Tomorrow will be my first cardio post back too. Nervous about that. Dont wanna set myself back again....
