Last week was a rough week. I felt bad all week and barely any energy. I felt like I was trying to come down with something but never did. The constant rain for days didn’t help either as it made it hard to get any running in. I’ve recently started the Couch to 5K running app and I’ve done really well so far, except it’s been over a week since I’ve been able to run. I will be getting back on the track today weather permitting.
Since I was feeling so off last week I decided to go get a b12 shot for an energy boost. I’ve gotten that shot tons of times in the past with no problems and it has definitely helped, however this time was different. I got the shot Thursday morning and within 2-3 hours I was in severe pain. My lower back was hurting so bad! I could not sit still, had to keep getting up to walk around, and just could not get comfortable. I tried essential oils, over the counter pain meds, hot bath, everything would work but only temporary. I could not figure out why I was in so much pain. I knew I had not picked up anything heavy or even worked out for it to hurt that bad. The pain lasted a good 24 hours, needless to say there was no sleep that night. It wasn’t till the next day that I started to think it could possibly be the shot. So I googled side effects and sure enough back pain is one of them. Just my luck. I woke up Saturday pain free thankfully and yesterday was the first day I felt normal.
Even though I wasn’t able to workout or run any last week I still managed to lose 3 lbs. I didn’t eat much Thursday cause I was in so much pain so that may have been a factor but I’ll sure take it. I’ve lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks so I’m pretty happy with it. Hopefully this week will be better!
