Time to see the damage
Thursday, December 04, 2008
Ok so not a very upbeat way to look at it but, but it's sort of how I feel, aside from still being extremely stuffy......and while I'm on the subject, kleenex with lotion only works for so long then it all feels like you're rubbing your face with sandpaper.....and cold medicine *gag*
As I posted before today, I've been dealing with a head cold. From the top of my shoulders down, I've felt peachy keen jelly bean *g* but from there up is a whole other story. Even doing a load of laundry winded me and wore me out because I couldn't breathe well so there went the workouts *sigh* Add to that fuzzy, muddled thinking and there went tracking my food......well, that may not be so bad as far as my psyche goes considering when I'm sick like this I can't taste anything so I tend to eat comfort foods simply because I know I have to eat, and I've downed more orange juice in the past three days than I have in three years. Well........after yesterday, a whole day that which I'm ambivalent about to say the least mind you......I've decided to hop back on that food tracking path as well as work back up to my workouts by tackling a heavy housework day including running up and down the stairs to my private retreat room and finishing boxing up items for storage and charity. I'm going to start by weighing in for the first time in almost two weeks (the last weigh in showed a 1lb loss). The numbers may freak me out, and I may get winded as all get out during the house work but I'll beat it.........I'm strong of will, heart and mind and this little hiccup is the least of things I've met head on this year. Plus I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired......I HATE being sick and laying in bed!!!!
So my motto for the day is "ONWARD AND UPWARD".
Now......where did I put that new case of kleenex *achoo!!!*
HOT UPDATE.......WOOHOO, THE SCALES SHOW I'VE MAINTAINED MY WEIGHT THROUGH THE ICKY COLD...YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!
