Not much of an update but I guess I want to keep everyone in the loop on the sick saga.
Still sick. Yes it's worse than yesterday. No I didn't call in to work for some reason...
I decided to get up and take a shower to see if I felt better, and of course I did slightly and then I was thoroughly awake... so I decided to go, but I started feeling worse again very soon so I dunno, whatever. Hopefully the day goes quickly. I had to be here 2 hours earlier than I usually have to be here on Friday -- which is normally 2 hours earlier than the rest of the week. So I'm definitely feeling that as well.
No word on the job yet, but apparently they couldn't do the last interview until today so hopefully I'll find out soon. *fingers crossed*
P.S. -- Just found out that they'll be able to discuss and deliberatae Monday and should have an answer that afternoon hopefully.

Yeah, so it's worse today. I ALLLMOST called in to work but realized that I was not THAT bad, and hey, tomorrow would be a better day to call in so we'll see if I can make it and if I'm still horrible tomorrow I can call in then, right? *sigh*
I hope it gets better tomorrow and not worse.
This morning I just sat and watched youtube and ate and then got dressed and came to work. I didn't even shower. I know I know -- it probably would have helped me feel a little better but I couldn't muster the motivation/energy.
I am in a happy-ish mood, but just feel kinda miserable. I think it's deceiving. hahaha. But whatever. Resting so I can get better soon! ASAP! DANGIT!

I feel about the same as yesterday -- only my sore throat didn't disappear after food and water for breakfast. It has stuck around all day. Not SUPER SORE BAD, just mildly irritating and annoying. It's so annoying because I'm not SICK, I'm just feeling the yuck factor. I don't want to complain about it too much because hopefully this means I'm fighting whatever it is off and I WON'T get really sick... but it's still irritating.
I had my interview today for that position I'm applying for at work and it seemed to go really well. One of the guys I work with told me he thought it went really well, as well as it possibly could even. So WOOHOO to that! (He's a position above me and will be taking responsibility for the tasks that our boss has once my boss is deployed next year, so whoever gets this position will be working very closely with this dude so he got to be in on the interviews.) It was kinda weird because it was FOUR PEOPLE interviewing me. But I've been interviewed by more than that before. :P So I guess that experience helped me in a way.
I'm kind of glad I had that interview actually, because the last two times I applied I was never formally interviewed. I talked to my boss briefly the first time, the second time I never even got that much. So at least this time it gave me the opportunity to DAZZLE them. ;) HAHAHAHA
Well -- as far as fitness/nutrition goes... I ate leftover pizza for breakfast. My DH bought a take and bake pizza from Sam's Club yesterday and saved me some. Well, I didn't want to eat it last night because I had dinner planned and calories worked out, but I ate it this morning. Looked it up at work and HOLY MOLY. It was almost 200cal more than I mentally alotted for. I figured 500-700 cal, and it was like 885. But with everything else entered I still have a buffer after dinner, so I'm not feeling too bad about it.
Just tired. And semi-sore throated and semi- congested. BUT.
I worked out. I didn't run because I thought that doing the ArcTrainer would be a more efficient use of my energy -- burn more calories for the time spent and through more use of my muscles than aerobic capacities. Worked well. And then I did ST, really focusing on intent and form and doing opposing stretches in between sets. That part felt really good.
Not sure what I will do the rest of the week when it comes to excercise, but I'm going to try to keep it up for sure, just seeing how I feel and everything.

The terrible weekend of temptation has been faced and defeated. :)
I know I said I wouldn't change my ticker unless I started to weigh consistently over my range but........ I weighed 165 even today.
SO! I reallly really wanted my ticker to finally show that I GOT THERE, so dangit, I updated it. :)
I probably ate more than I needed to on Saturday evening, but I didn't go CRAZY either. I got my little steak, baked potato w/ butter and sour cream ON THE SIDE thank you very much (only used a little bit), salad... good stuff. :) No desserts, good good. The extra were a bit of appetizers, but I really didn't eat very much of them at all -- not like I normally would. I was very in control and it felt great. I didn't feel restricted, just good. And normal. :) hehe.
Tracked everything on paper yesterday and stayed to the bottom of my cal range w/ good stuff and feel good today.
I wanted to do SOMETHING workout related this morning but I dunno how it happened -- I totally just lost track of time. I got up just before 10, planned meals, and somehow didn't leave for the store until 11:15, but I don't have to leave for work until 12:40. I figured, ok, I have a list, hit the first store 30min, hit the second store for like 3 things, 15 minutes, I'll be back at the house by noonish, a little after. (I live RIGHT NEXT to the stores I was going to.) Well I get out of the first store and it's already 12:15. OOPS!
So I had to rush home, eat something, get my lunch together, put away the groceries, shower...
Left the house at 12:45 and arrived at work 5 min late. *phwew* HAHAHA. But no time for physicality. Maybe I can do some ST tonight, but everytime I say that I never do. (BWAHAHA I might as well be honest with myself...) Tomorrow is speedwork, though, and probably some Upper Body and Core ST. :)
