So my Saturday consisted of waking up with a screaming headache, pressure in my chest, and a roaring 102.6 fever. Not exactly how I wanted to start the day out. Thank God my husband didn't have to work today, because there was no way I was going to be able to take care of my kiddos! :( My oldest daughter has a bit of this, as she came home on Friday running a temp and went straight to bed and slept till 3:30 this morning. Her and I laid around all day. My husband and youngest daughter cleaned house and cooked dinner, so that was helpful!
On a positive note, my cupcakes turned out so cute, and she was the talk of her party at school. (pictures to come) That made me feel good, and I think that she was shocked that despite the fact that I didn't feel good, I came through for her. I really wanted to just crawl into bed, but I was a trooper! Feeling somewhat better, since I am able to get on here, but I wear out easily. Hoping for a better day tomorrow, as I have to work, and my boss will be back, but only to catch up on what she needs to do (her dad passed away last Saturday).
Hoping everyone else is feeling great, and loving their weekend! I'm on the mend...!

So yesterday, I started out with a fairly small cough. I was up for 20 hours yesterday (meaning up at work all night, and most of the day, Thursday), so by the time I had gotten my kiddos from school, I felt like I was having an out of body experience. I got the kiddos home and laid on my loveseat, and then came the chills and fever. Oh Good Lord! That is all I need right now. I went to work, because not only do I not call in, but I had no one to cover me. In 9 years of working where I am, I have only called in sick 4 times, and missed a week, due to my dad passing away. I hate to have someone cover me when I am gone. I am feeling somewhat better, but still have this irritating cough that I started with.
My daughter's birthday is today, so I will be baking cupcakes and decorating today. She wants flowers on them, so I am making them out of marshmallows and decorator sugar. Should be cute. Hopefully I will feel much better today..., no working out for me. :(
Have a remarkable weekend, and hope everyone is happy and healthy!

Everything is going well! Kyle (my youngest), has a doctor's appointment for a follow up from our disaster last week. He is doing so much better! We have created what I call a "chore" chart and on that chart are two things that he is doing so well with. 1. Go to the bathroom. Now for all of us that seems so insignificant, but to a 5 year old, well I guess you have to put it in writing. lol 2. Try a new food everyday. He has done really well with this. My son is the pickiest person I know that I will probably EVER meet! He is one of those kids that when you tell him to try a new food, he is gagging himself just thinking of having to put it in his mouth. :( We actually got him to eat about 9 kernels of corn the other night, and that is BIG TIME awesome! So, we are working on it. He gets "points" for that and the other things that he has to do daily, to be rewarded after getting so many points, so I know that we are moving in a positive direction!
Still psyched about going to the gym and working out, which I am happy about. Not getting tired of it, and usually when I miss a week of not working out, I just lose interest and don't go anymore (last September). I don't EVER want to do that again. It's not about the weight loss (although that's nice too), it's about just all over feeling great about youself and feeling healthy. Keep moving! Have an awesome Thursday!! It's supposed to be a beautiful day here in Wichita, so take advantage of it!

I tried Zumba for the first time today! It was a blast! I have to tell you, I was VERY apprehensive when I first got there, not knowing what to expect. There was another lady standing there, and I had asked if she had done it before. She told me no and that she had just watched a couple of times. I got out on the floor and told her that she HAD to join me! So we took the class, and at the end, she thanked me for telling her to get to it! That made me feel very proud, that someone was thanking me for the encouragement, someone I had never met before! I know no stranger, I can talk freely to anyone! I hadn't been to the Y all last week, so it was great that I got off of my A** and made it happen. Now I am ready for the rest of the week! Zumba is definitely in the cards for the week! So fun, it didn't feel like a workout!
Hope you all have a splendid week! **skinny vibes** to ya!

So yesterday was not a very good day..., not with me, but with my son. Already, I was dealing with this UTI, which I am happy to say is on it's way out the door, but then there is my 5 year old that I thought had the same thing I was dealing with. Well, come to find out it wasn't the same thing, he had an "impacted colon". Good Lord! I'm sure some of you know what that is. And let me tell you, with a 5 year old that can't differentiate while having this, to go #1 or #2, is awful! Poor kiddo. Nothing that a good ole enema from the dr didn't cure. He is back in school now, feeling better...and lighter!
As for me, I have not made it to the gym but one day this week..., so frustrated. However, I plan on making that up in these 3 days ahead, got to get back my motivation. I KNOW I will feel better. I walked with a friend of mine on Wednesday, you know, when it felt like it was actually spring out, and we walked 2.5 miles, but it wasn't at the pace I do my elliptical. I felt good for getting out and walking, even if it felt like I had to pee the whole time! Hahahahaha
Have a terrific weekend! Sunday sounds delightful, so I guess I may not go to the Y to do my working out, but do it outside!
