In the last few blogs, I have been really whiney about being sick. for all the supportive comments. I truly appreciate them. Here is a quick overview of it all and what is going on with it now.
First, I got a head cold which turned into a chest cold with a nasty cough. I was prescribed a Z-pak antibiotic. After that ran its course in my body for about two weeks, I got sick with a low grade temperature. They put me on amoxicillian in which a week later I got a yeast infection. They put me on something for that. At the same time, we decided to try out antidepressant (prozac). Two days later, I broke out in hives.
Okay, that is my last month.
Now.. they prescribed prednisone and benadryl/claratin. In 9 days, I hope to get rid of these hives and sinus infection. Unfortunately, this means I might gain weight.
Honestly, I REALLY just want to stay in the 170s. But, the thing is.. even if I don't, it is not the end of the world. Whatever I gain, I WILL lose again! This is a journey, not a race. I WILL conquer this!
While being sick for the last month, I haven't had alot of energy so I haven't been working out. So, yes, this means, I haven't been training for the HM.. but rather trying to take care of ME. I was eating fine until this week came along. I have had Applebee's Buffalo Wings and Lava Cake than yesterday I had ice cream twice!
So, I am going to use these next two weeks while I am on medication to re-focus by...
-taking a vacation from the scale.
-working out consistently
I know I can do it. It is only 9 days! It is ironic though... because the same day I am prescribed prednisone, the featured blog is "How I Cope When Pain Relief Leads to Weight Gain" which talked about prednisone. Talk about timing! Thanks Sparkpeople!

Sometimes ice cream just makes you feel better.
Today is one of those days. I went to bed last night after taking benadryl for hives and woke up with them being worse. They are all over my body.
This was last night. I am not sure if you can see it.
Anywho.. I did not study for my quiz and still got a 76%, C range. That is pretty darn good considering I missed more than a week of lecture and didn't study for the test.
Than, I went to a different professor before I had to be in his class and was like I have hives, can I go home? He is like, "Yes, yes. Go home." I didn't want to go home.. and the cool air felt good.
So, I went and got ice cream. It feel SOOOO good on my lymphs as it hurts to swallow. Now, I wait until 3:00, for my doctor's appointment.

Okay, this is going to be one whiney blog. Hit the red x in the corner now when you can!
I am pouting because I cannot go to soccer. I cannot go to soccer because I am sick. Still. Today, during my last class, I was so exhausted. Afterwards, I came home and cried. Than, called the nurse to get yet another doctor's appointment. I don't know why. They say it is viral and cannot do anything. Mind you, if I go to my appointment on Monday, it will be like the third or fourth time in two weeks.
In addition to saying it is ONLY a sinus infection, they say it is my wisdom teeth coming in. In addition to that, they put me on Prozac, an antidepressant, so I am dealing with those side effects, too.
So, anyhow, back to my pouting. I want to go to soccer. I want to see my friends. I want to run. I want my life back!
I should do my study guide for my quiz tomorrow but honestly, I am not sure if I really care. The quiz (on the heart) is 25 points and open book because it is online. It is timed though so it is not like I have ALL the time in the world. Right now, I am getting an A in the class.. so.. it is kinda the least of my worries...
In addition to that, I am stressed about my class, Motor Learning. My professor were supposed to meet today to discuss my grade and he just blew it off. He had meetings. Apparently, he couldn't have told me this two hours before when I saw him in class. Argh! I find it really inconsiderate! Anyhow, I gotta do some catch up in that class... not sure when I will have time for that though. He didn't say when it was due... like Friday or when we hand in the paper. Argh!
Maybe I will lay down until the pain killers kick in than do at least some of the study guide... some is better than none, I guess. *big, big sigh*
My face has a splotchy rash on it. My poor, poor face. I have decided I want ALL meds OUT of my body. They are NOT helping and I just want my body do what it knows how to do... make me feel better!

More and more, I realize this year is MY year.
It is MY year to reach my goal weight. Right now, I am about 12# away. Okay, I might be a bit more than considering I went to Applebees and had wings and lava cake. So, let's say 15#. Still, SO close!
It is MY year to run my first Half Marathon. In the last month, I have been asked by four different people to run four different (half) marathons. It is like opportunities keep coming up and I just gotta commit to one. The most recent marathon I was asked about is on April 30. So, maybe I will do that as a "training" marathon. Also, since I turn 25 in April, I feel like it could be a birthday present to me.
More so, my professor told me today how he signed up for Grandma's half marathon. He was super excited about it. I find it great that he was excited to share it with me.
Anyhow, I feel like my community on campus considers ME a runner! Once upon a time, no one would have asked me about any health-related advice. Now, they ask me to run, how to lose weight, to work out with them to keep them motivated. I am honored each and every time they ask.

After Wednesday's night of intramural soccer, we both felt inepth so we decided to pracitce today. It was alot of fun to kick around .
Later, we decided to shoot some hoops. While in the gymnasium, I noticed a quote that I decided I really like. Probably because it can be applied to weight loss.
“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” -Micheal Jordan
Than, I decided I wanted to try to work out. So, we hopped on the arc trainer. 7 minutes later I got nauseus so we stopped. I figure right now my body can tolerate 20 minutes of physical activity considering we were at the gym for about a little over a hour. It felt good to do a small amount of physical activity.
Anyhow, I hope to this week!
