12 Weeks to Fitness: Bye back pain, hello progress


Welcome to 12 Weeks of Fitness, a weekly blog series by Kris Mitchell, a sophomore at the University of St. Thomas and alumnus of ThreeSixty Journalism. Kris is involved in a 12-week program at St. Thomas to lose weight and improve his health. A team of videography students will document his progress for a class project. Check back weekly to read about Kris’s experience.

In week 4, I talk about how doing something about my persistent back pain has helped me move forward on other goals, including exercising more. With less pain, I’m able to sleep more. Combined with a better diet, that has helped me lose three pounds.

Watch my interview with ThreeSixty Journalism as I explain my determination to get rid of back problems that have prevented me from staying healthy and fit.
