Wed Weigh in (a day late)

As all of us know, life just gets in the way sometimes and I have not been very consistent with my posts, but this week my sickness threw a bigger wrench in it.  I took a bike ride last week in overcast, chilly weather.  While all of you on the east coast are laughing at me, it's been several years since I lived in Flagstaff.  Down here in Phoenix I like my heat because it treats me better.  So I biked.  I pushed myself and it was windy to boot!

End result?  A severe head cold that's had me on my butt.

Now, with me being sick, I've been trying to be the good person, taking care of myself, and resting.  It went pretty well for the most part.  Tuesday I had to get out and move because my back was just super tight.  But I overdid it and walked 2.75 miles.  I was fine for most of it, but I was not feeling well and ended up calling in from work again Wednesday.

So Wed rolls around and I slept.  And slept.  Rest.  I know I know.  I need it but I just hate it.  If I have to be home, I'm usually glued to my computer, but I was even too sick to do that.  When I finally DID wake up, I weighed in to find out I have dropped another 2.6 pounds!

(my apologies for looking sick and the cat butt that's ALWAYS in my face in the mornings)

I spent the day sipping on my awesome Green Chile Chicken Soup because I'm sick and tired of Chicken Noodle. I also caught up on my Love Handles Calendar as well as the planksgiving calendar because I hate to just leave days behind no matter how I'm feeling.  But that was the extent of my movement yesterday.

Today I went back to work and let me tell you, 3:30am when you're sick is not a happy day.  It was a rough day and thank goodness we ran out of work and got sent home.  I've never been so happy to be at home in my jammies.  I can't remember the last time I was this sick and miserable.  Don't get head colds, they suck!

I'm going to do my best to continue to take it sorta easy.  I know I'm dropping weight from being sick and I'm not terribly happy about losing it that way, but it is what it is.  As long as I keep it off the right way I guess I'll take it.  Here's to listening to our bodies and making sure we stay safe and as healthy [as we can] when sick!
