Don't be too hard on yourself. You HAVE to take care of your body. You can still easily be in a calorie deficit today on diet alone. The better you take care of your body now, the more you will be able to do later! Hugs!

Be good to yourself. Maybe some gentle stretching or an epsom salts bath for today?

Yikes! Sorry to hear about that. I have sciatica issues as well so I try to be very, very careful when exercising.

The only thing that helps me is doing slight Pilates moves every so often. As in starting off at 2 or 3 minutes at a time for 5+ times a day. I can't go longer than that, but I gradually build up the time as I get stretched and balanced out.

Hope you feel better soon.

The reason we experience pain is it's our bodies way of telling us a part of us in injured and to rest it.

I think you should listen to your body. I, too, have a herniated disc and have good days and bad days. Pushing my back on a bad day is a sure-fire way to injure myself quite badly.

Rest!

If you have a back injury, something like Zumba is a bad idea in general. It has generated far too many injuries all by its lonesome and isn't well suited to someone with pre-existing hip or back issues. Something with less twisting, jumping, and shuffling, is a much better bet.

I can't remember which one of my chiropractors mentioned that they see multiple Zumba injuries per week in their patient roster, but I took that to heart big time!

agree about taking it easy for now, and giving your body a chance to rest. Hopefully, as you continue to lose the weight, it will be less pressure on those disks and they'll start to feel a bit better.

I have been able to do some pretty rigorous exercise with this injury.....I am still gonna try it when I feel better. I am confident that I know my body and will discontinue if I find it too strenuous....
