sickness – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea

This week has been a little rough around the edges. I’ve been sick going on 7 days now, and while I’m starting to feel better, last weekend was really, really bad.

My head felt like it had a vice grip around it. There were a couple of times that I went to walk across the room and had to stop and grab onto something because of the shooting pains I was getting in my head.

No fun.

So, my workouts were down, my eating was a little wonky, and I just generally felt blech, you know?

All that being said, I dd post a loss this week. It wasn’t as much as I was hoping for, but a loss is a loss and I’ll take it. I’m down .4 this week, which puts me at 157.6

This week will be better. It will be.

  1. 10 minutes of either abs or yoga in the morning before the kids get up. – I intended to write “3 days a week”, which is exactly what I did.  : )
  2. Run/Walk 3 days and cross-train 2-3 days a week. -UGH!!! I can try to blame this on being sick, but that wasn’t all of it… I was on the treadmill twice, and that was it.
  3. One sweet a day, at the END of the day. – 6 out of 7 days. I did pretty good with this one!
  4. Limit pre-packaged foods. – I was picking fruit and veggies for snacks whenever I could.

Evidently, I missed Week 3…which just goes to show you that my mental state has not been at it’s best lately.

After 2 weeks of feeling like crap, I’m finally going to the doctor today.  I figured after I couldn’t open my mouth or chew food at dinner, that probably things weren’t right in my head, LOL!

That being said, I’m 1.5 pounds…but that’s over 2 weeks.  Between feeling like crap, feeling sorry for myself and subsequently not eating well and not exercising…I’ll take it. Not to mention biology is being a bitch this week.

I haven’t even been keeping track of my miles.  I have no idea where I am with that and I’m not sure I have the desire to go back and try to figure it out.

There is a fine line between taking care of yourself and babying yourself.  I hate that.  I am ready to start feeling normal again.  Here’s hoping antibiotics do their job.  Gotta get this course done (even though they haven’t even been prescribed yet) before I start yet another course in mid-December.

I’m not a good sick person.  At the first sign of illness, I have a tendency to curl up into the fetal position and feel very, VERY sorry for myself.

There was a time, when I was in H.S. that I was in a bad way an my mom was my nurse for about 6 weeks.

We don’t talk about that much.  It’s one of the few times I remember making my mom cry.

I’m not a good patient.  AT ALL!

This week?  I feel like a Mack Truck has ran over me, looked in the rearview mirror, and then reversed BACK over me just to make sure they finished the job.

Which means I have a headache.

I don’t know if it’s allergies (a new development for me) or an actual sickness.

I did get on the treadmill yesterday, but that’s the first time I’ve been active in a while.  I just feel like I want to roll up in a ball and sleep for a month.

Which ever mother knows is one of the WORST parts about being a mom of small children.  There are no sick days.  Ever.

I’m not making good choices.  I’m not working out.  I’m just waiting for the wave of ICK to roll on through.

And praying that my kids don’t kill each other while they are “playing”.
