I need a kick in the backside

Friday, June 05, 2009

I have been really bad this week at tracking my food and fitness I need to get back with the program. Last weekend I came down with a bug the left side of my throat was super swollen bright red and felt like I was swallowing knives. OUCH. I went to the Doctor on Monday and he did a culture to check for strep and it came back negative so no antibiotics for me. He says take motrin and get some rest. I wasn't to happy with that advice because I was in a lot of pain.

Monday night I was laying in bed wide awake in pain and frustrated. So I drag myself out of bed and decide I need to do something. I'm standing in the bathroom looking in the mirror and I start to think about my pain and where it is originating. My left ear and the left side of my throat both hurt like crazy. Hmmm I break out the peroxide and pour a little in my ear and let it bubble away. After about 3 minutes I drain my ear take one motrin instead of two and go back to bed. Tuesday morning I feel a bit better still in pain but not quite as bad. so tuesday night hubby helps me and I do the peroxide thing twice. Wednesday morning I feel a whole lot better the swelling is way down I can eat again. So I think it was a really nasty ear infection and the Dr didn't even look at my ears.

It's Thursday and I feel so much better I went to water aerobics tonight. Yay me!! Now I just gotta get my booty in gear and start tracking again. Someone light a fire under me.

Although I didn't track I was careful about my portions and such so I'm hoping for another drop in the numbers. My pants are a bit looser :)

    I'm with Zaababy. I was all prepared to come in here and give you a good backside-kicking and send you on your way, but my goodness, girl, when you're sick, you're sick!

    Now that you're feeling better, you're ready to get back in the game immediately! At least for me, that would be real progress.

    Take care,

    I refuse to kick someone who was sick. Maybe tomorrow?
    Start fresh in the morning. Determine to stay within your calorie limits, be prepared for what you're going to eat for the day, plan for your cardio/strength training. Water aerobics sounds so fun! I wish there was something like that around here. Good luck, I'm sure you will do great!
