Ok, I havent posted a real blog in a while. Really, Im just getting back into SP. I took a bit of a hiatus. In October, I got sick. A sinus infection. But, it never went away. Sneezing all day everyday, sinus headaches (in addition to my regular daily headaches), runny/stuffy nose, sinus pressure, etc... Since October. I stopped going to the gym, because I couldn't realy breathe, much less exercise.
I also stopped tracking my food. Not only did I stop tracking it, but I stopped caring. I let my sweet tooth rule the world. (No kidding...I mean, eat 8 peanut butter cups in one sitting... Make a batch of eggless cookie dough and eat the whole bowl in one sitting...)
So, needless to say, Ive gained some weight. Fifteen pounds to be exact. Most people (including my hunny) cant even tell I gained any weight. Im lucky that way I guess...I carry my weight well. But, I can certainly tell. And My clothes can certainly tell.
So anyways, I finally went to the doctor...figuriing that 4+ months of a sinus infection (after being on 3 antibiotics for it) was NOT normal. The doc told me that I have moderate asthma (no wonder I can never breathe!) and I developed an allergy to something. I go tomorrow for fulll allergy testing. Im dreading it. I hear it's torturous! Ive also been put on 2 different inhalers, which seem to be helping.
Well, completely disgusted with my body, about 2 weeks ago, I just started going to the gym again. Head pounding, nose running, lungs wheezing. I decided that Im going to, once again, try and learn to enjoy running. I have NEVER been a runner. I mean... I was a varsity gymnast through highschool, and still could never run under a 12 minute mile. So I hopped on the treadmill one night, and just ran till I wanted to die...then ran just a little further. Ive been doing that a few nights a week.
I still HATE running. But Im hoping that one day..I will enjoy it. My hunny is a former Marine, and he can run. He told me he'd start running with me, once the weather lightens up! So that might make it more enjoyable.
So that's whats been going on with me!
(Other than the HUGE drama.... sad, but I dont want to get into it right now. But If you could pray for my niece's safety...that'd be great!)
