Started the year off strong but unbeknownst to me I also started it off with a case a shingles. In case there's someone who doesn't know what that is, it is (at least in my case) chicken pox 2.0 and is kind of awful. Got my official diagnosis (official since I'd already determined it was shingles thanks to WebMD) Wednesday and today is the first day I've felt anywhere close to normal to be able to get any kind of workout in. I also used the few days off to not keep track of what I was eating but was conscious of what I was eating and how much of it. Today was weekly weigh-in and despite my couch potato status of 4 days I did have a weight loss of 3 lbs. Most of which I'm certain was water weight but I'll take what I can get and roll with it. Speaking of rolling, tomorrow is the College Football National Championship game and I can't wait to see Alabama roll all over LSU.
