Still Feeling Yucky

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Day Two of being sick - YUCK, I'm over it already. Hubby made some yummy homemade chicken noodle soup for me last night, he makes the best soup. Went to bed at 8:00, so you know I'm sick crawling into bed that early.

Woke up this morning, after tossing and turning all night, didnt really get a good night's rest - STILL SICK this morning and now hubby is too. I feel worse today than yesterday, but hopefully that means I will be better tomorrow. You know you always get worse before you get better - at least that's what I keep telling myself.

So we both will drag ourselves thru the day, pump up the Sudafed and have leftover soup tonight for dinner, hopefully whatever bug we've caught will leave very soon, cuz I missing out on a lot of exercise and fitness minutes :(

Hope all my sparkies are well and having a super day.

    Make sure you give yourself time to feel better.... don't stress your body by jumping into exercise before you have gotten rid of that bug... take it slow and easy... I hope you feel better soon! emoticon

    Bummer! I am so sorry to hear you've got the cooties. I have had some kind of yucky stuff for almost three weeks now. I just can't seem to shake it. Not enough to go to the doctor, but just enough to be annoying! Hopefully, you'll be feeling better tomorrow for sure!

Soup sounds delicious! I'm going to make your salsa chicken this week. Thanks for the recipe!

    Don't worry about the missed fitness...right now your body needs YOU to take care of it and give the rest it needs so it can fight off this bug! You'll be back to full swing before you know it! Hey, at least you've got a guy who makes great soup...I'd be afraid to eat anything my hub made. emoticon Get some rest and feel better soon!

Under the Weather

Monday, October 11, 2010

I woke up yesterday with a terrible head cold, didn't really do much at all yesterday.

Starting the week off SICK really SUCKS. My head hurts, my chest is congested, stuffy and runny nose and coughing. Oh how I hate being sick. Just gonna drag myself thru the day. Whaaa, whaaa, boo hoo, woah woah is me emoticon

Hoping I can manage an upper body arm workout today, but I'm betting I can't run with a headache and chest congestion. This really is NOT a convenient time for illness, since it is going to interfere with my training this week, but as my sister says... "It is, what it is", so I'm NOT going to have a bad attitude about this, I'm just gonna feel physically horrible with a SMILE on my face. It could be worse, it could be race week. emoticon

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is enjoying a happy Monday. Could someone please pass the tissues and the Sudafed, cough, cough, sniffle, sniffle.

    OUCH - Yuck - I hate working out when I feel crappy. Give yourself a break to heal up.
CHICKEN SOUP YEP - That is always good.
Feel better. I am going home tonight and back to work tomorrow.
HUBS is doing much better now. Still was a very bad trauma but we will make it through it and the worst is behind us right now.

    I've always read that if the congestion is above the neck, you can run if you want to. But if it's in the chest, you shouldn't.

So take care of you. Your body is trying to tell you to take a rest. When I have a cold, usually the only thing I do is walk the dogs. They just totally wipe me out.

Oh, and chicken soup really does help. Feel better soon!

Kicked it, Boxed it and Ripped it

Friday, October 08, 2010

emoticonWoo hoo - yesterday afternoon we did the P90X Kempo, what a great kickboxing workout, then did the AB Ripper. - Boy was I whipped when we got finished. Glad to get in that workout before dinner.

Dinner with my son was nice, AND I DID NOT OVEREAT (patting myself on the back) glad I got to see him before he moves on Saturday. Wishing him the best in his new endeavor.

Today, is a "Take It Easy" day - gonna get in a 3-mile walk at lunch, no running today.

Tonight - High school football game against our rival and I'm saving calories for a ballpark hotdog, nothing says football like a hotdog, yum, they better have relish this time. Good luck to our DOLPHINS, we are undefeated - GO FINS !!!

After game tonight gonna do the P90X arms and shoulder workout - gotta get it in before the day is over. I have a plan and I'm sticking as close to it as possible, only one little slip up this week with missing a workout, so I can count this week as a SUCCESS, scale didn't move, but a fitness SUCCESS.

Tomorrow it's an early a.m. 7 mile run, only 2 weekends left before the race after tomorrow's run, gotta work on some speed.

Gonna be a glorious weather day, gonna take my motorcycle out for a spin to enjoy the beautiful weather. Hope everyone has a great weekend, I will check in with you all on Monday. emoticon

Training - Day 4

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Ended up running 5 miles last night before dinner - woo hoo - and had lasagna for dinner. Had to hustle to pack lunches for next day and wash a load of clothes before Survivor. I made it with 5 minutes to spare, good thing, because if I sat down 15 minutes before it came on, I would have fallen sleep, the run really whipped me last night.

Overslept, AGAIN this morning, but not a bad thing, I caught up on some much needed sleep, been running on low fuel in that department.

Leaving work a little early today. Gonna go home and bust out a quick workout, shower, then meet my son for dinner. I don't get to see him too often and he's moving on Saturday to Maryland. Makes me sad to think my son will now be 4 hours away. But hopefully this will be a great move for him, new job, new people, new life. Glad he's getting "it" together.

Dinner - it's Mexican, my son's favorite, so I will have to extra careful not to suck down a whole bowl of tortilla chips, I know it will be a very emotional dinner, saying goodbye.

This is going to be a happy and sad kinda day, just hope to make it through. "LIFE" it happens.

    Enjoy your supper tonight it sure sounds like you deserve it. Even though 4 hours seems so far away, it is much easier to keep in touch now than it was when we moved away from home, I'm sure your son will always be close.

    First, awesome job on the run last night! Second, don't sweat it on the sleeping in this morning. Obviously, your body needed it! Third, I can only imagine how you are feeling about your baby moving four hours away. I have only one son and he's 19. Went away to college last year and then came back to attend a local college this year. I missed my baby terribly, but love that he's back. I know one day he'll graduate and find a job somewhere else. That is his goal! I don't blame him! When that day comes, I'll cry my eyes out, but know that he is on his life's journey and he'll be ready. I need to find somewhere else to "vacation" anyway. Hopefully, he'll find a job somewhere warm! Fourth...MEXICAN? emoticon That's my all-time favorite! All I can say is enjoy! You deserve it. You can rock out six miles tomorrow morning. emoticon Unless, of course, this is you instead... emoticon. Oops! You said chips...not tequila!

XOXO Sherry

    Yes Be Strong - I am sure he will do well. It's hard being hours away from family. The times that you will have together now will be one's to cherish. Enjoy them and keep them.
Good for you on your 5 mile run.
You are such an inspiration to me. Thanks for being such a great SP friend.

Training - Day 3

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Last night's workout wasn't all that I expected, we weren't prepared for the P90X we had scheduled last night, we didn't have a pull-up bar so we improvised, need to get some accessories this weekend. We did the chest and back workout, still it was good. emoticon

emoticonThis morning, was a sleep in day (not on purpose)

emoticon5.5 mile run this evening, weather is supposed to be fantastic so I'm ready - come on 5:00, I'm ready to run. Then we will do the AB Ripper after our run.

Hoping to get a little fresh air and walk at lunch time today, but we shall see if weather cooperates. I brought my gear in hopes I can go. I really need to get out of the office for my lunch hour, it breaks up the day. emoticon

emoticonDinner is already done for tonight - lasagna - just heat it on low in the oven while we are out on our run, and BAM, slap it on a plate with some garlic bread - DONE, served with a side of love, lol.

Hope my sister is feeling up to a great run today, she wasn't feeling well yesterday, I felt bad for her, emoticonshe wasn't really into our workout, and I felt bad having fun without her having fun, but I'm sure she'll be back on the "A" game tonight, she's fiesty ya know.

I registered for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk on Oct. 16th, I'm walking it with a special friend. Look me up on Facebook to donate.

Hope everyone has a great day, filled with fun and fitness, and healthy eating. Do your body good.

    You sound happy today! Is it 'cause it's Hump Day? I ran four miles on the treadmill last night, but was hoping for five. Didn't make it. I am going to try again tonight after Cougar Town. I LOVE THAT SHOW!!!

Enjoy the lasagna! Yummy for the tummy!
