Is there any way that you can keep doing less intense workouts?  Don’t forget to keep up with your diet since you can’t work out!

Well remember 80% of it is your diet so be really good about it and you will be fine!

Do you think you could to an recumbent bike (if you belong to a gym)

They look like these and most gyms have them.  They are usualy used for physical therapy.

I have the same issue with my knees.  I dislocated both of my knees in middle school, and I’ve never been the same since.  I got to about week 4 of couch to 5k, and I had so much knee pain, I could barely walk.

Take it easy!  Keep up with your diet, and you won’t lose much of your results in a week!

Sorry you are hurt.  I have this same issue, I have had it since I had my son.  I found, through working out with my friend/trainer, that I needed longer warm up session with pressure.  He pulls and pushes the areas I am stretching (ie when I am touching my toes he pushes me down gently).  I haven’t really had many issues with my back since he started me doing it.  Maybe you might try it when you are able to work out again.

That sucks! I have a back injury from a car accident a few years ago that flares up sometimes and it just makes me SO irritated – stupid back!

On an encouraging note though, I have hardly exercised in the past two months (like once a week maybe! and that is being generous on some weeks…) and have lost 10 lbs just by eating better!  You can keep up the weight loss with your diet, while your back heals πŸ™‚

I’ve always had problems with my back, it’s a huge bummer when it goes out.  I started seeing a physical therapist and started learning exercises to strengthen my core and I just try to be more aware of how I’m moving and if it will hurt my back.  I tuck my tail bone under when I run, and when I do ab exercises I try to make sure my back is staying flat on the floor.  If it’s not, then you’re doing something that your core isn’t strong enough to do and it uses your easily stressed back muscles to compensate.  So far, it’s been better.  Prevention is the best medicine.  Good luck on the healing and do a lot of ‘child’s pose’ stretches.

If it makes you feel any better I had this bet going when my husband joined the military and was in basic training who was going to lose the most weight. I was doing great and then all of a sudden I started gaining a bit and was too tired to finish my workouts – I was pregnant lol. From then on he lost every month and I gained – I was so mad lol
