I'm really not sure if I'll go to class tonight. I've developed a bad cough and my congestion is back. I'm staying late at work to help with a book fair and if I go to class I'll be at work from 6:45 am until 7 pm. Wouldn't really get to spend any time with the kids and would probably be too tired to do well in class.
I haven't been sleeping or eating well. Yesterday I had a Subway sandwich with chips for lunch and nothing the rest of the night aside from a few pieces of candy the kids and I made. I just haven't had an appetite for anything. I know it's not healthy and that I'm not going to lose weight this way, but honestly, I think I need to put getting over this sickness that's been plaguing me for what seems like forever first. My heart just isn't IN the whole diet/exercise/Paleo thing right now.
I'm thinking of calling my doctor. This is not my typical cold and I'm worried it's something worse.

So, I'm still slightly sick- my nose is runny and the congestion is still there but mild, but today I am retaking charge of my life as far as my healthy diet and gym goes. I'm going to eat mostly Paleo today (having leftover, de-breaded KFC chicken breast with a ton of roasted veggies for lunch) and am going to my BeFit class tonight! I might go up to the gym on lunch too for a walk around the track.... we'll see.
Right now my veggies are roasting and I'm making a Paleo pancake with banana, egg, and almond butter (it's turning out much more pancakey than my last attempt :D)... gonna go get ready for work while they cook! Our Scion (ie: little car) can't get through all the mud so Joe has to drive me down our long dirt road in the truck this morning to where we parked it. The spring thaw is upon us...
Not much else to report so off I go.

random thoughts of the day:
-my neti pot is going to be my new biffle (Best Friend For Life). For the first time in days I CAN BREATHE. The congestion/stuffiness is not entirely gone, but it's about a gazillion times better than it was before my neti pot and I met.
-Joe and I started writing out a list of areas for improvement in our marriage. All in all... it was a decent day, and I think we have both accepted that we need a lot of work in order to fix and rebuild.
-I've decided I need to get some more tattoos. I know I want my swan on my inner left wrist when I get to my goal weight (something to symbolize the transformation from ugly duckling to beautiful swan, yada yada) and I'm thinking now I want something to accompany it. I've been thinking this quote by Tori Amos, who was my first favorite musical artist and someone I still love:
"I tell you there're pieces of me you've never seen" or perhaps the next line "Maybe she's just pieces of me you've never seen" from the song Tear In Your Hand (which also pays homage to one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman!). The song is pretty much about a breakup, BUT to me those lines symbolize being more than just what others perceive you to be, or even being more than you yourself perceive. Weight loss is a huge struggle for me, and I know getting to and maintaining my goal will require a lot of inner strength and perserverance which are qualities that I have but that don't really shine. Anyway...
I also want to get a tattoo for my beautiful boy. I like the quote "one moment's proof of heaven's existence" with his birth time and date (12.29.10/3:25) but I'm not sure where I'd locate it. I first had this idea a few months ago and put off having Joe do the tattoo (oh, if you didn't know, my hubby owns tattoo equipment and is quite inked himself) because I wasn't 100% sure. I still really love it though so I think it'll probably be the next thing I get. I'm thinking the inside of my right forearm but haven't quite sold myself on the idea of being someone with visible ink (all five of my tattoos are pretty easily covered)... but I also want it somewhere people can see it because it's in honor of my son. Conflicted, so I might just have Joe make a stencil and wear it around for a few days!
I want something literary-inspired, but don't really know what book I'd pick from as I love to read. The Princess Bride is honestly one of my favorites, so perhaps a quote from that. AND I want, someday, a back piece- I've wanted a mountain/forest scene for years!
(Can you tell I spent a lot of time tonight googling tattoo ideas? Haha)
Time for bed... so excited to be able to breathe tonight!
