Really sick for two weeks, been extremely busy, and totally off tra

Monday, February 13, 2012

This past week has been a disaster for my new healthy me journey. Ive been really sick with a horrible cold/flu since for over 2 weeks. When Ive been home, Ive been sleeping, which hasnt been very much. I was volunteering at our local community theatre that puts on plays, and we had shows the last 2 weekends. So between being sick and being busy with the theatre and everything else that has been going on, I have been totally off track. I have been drinking pop, eating junk food, and eating out way too much. And I havent even thought about exercising.

Im still pretty sick, and probably should go to the doctor, but with no health insurance, that gets really expensive. So, I have goals this week to help me get back on track and hopefully feeling better.

My goals are:

1. Drink water or unsweetened tea. (8 glasses a day)
2. Do not eat out
3. Try to add in some exercises after the dizziness goes away from being sick (even if its just 10 mins at a time)
4. Rest this week. Monday is the only day I have something I have to do
5. Try to get up early enough to eat breakfast. (I havent been getting up till lunchtime) Then relax after breakfast.
6. Eat healthy lunches and dinners all week at home
7. Eat lots of veggies and fruits for the vitamins
8. Go to A livemind meeting with Coach Krystie
9. Get some activity on by cleaning the house, until i have enough energy to exercise. Even if you only get up and do 5-10 mins at a time, thats a start
10. Log on to SP everyday

Hopefully thesse goals will not only help me get back on track, but help me get better. This cold is horrible. For the last 2 days, Ive been so dizzy from it because of all the sinus pressure in my head. I just cant seem to get better.....even though i dont have any kind of insurance, I may end up going to the doctor if i dont start to feel better after staying home and resting for a couple days. But hopefully after staying home, taking it easy and resting, I will get better on my own.

    Hope you get well soon, I know being sick can make staying on track very hard. I have also had the crud all week, and only got to work out one day. I couldn't make it trough even one 15 min video. The 5 to 10 min. at a time house cleaning is a great idea, it worked well for me. Hope to see you in the meeting on Thursday. Hang in there. emoticon

    Good luck with your goals to get started again! I have had the "bug", too and I know what you are talking about! I have been keeping up with my exercises but really don't feel like doing much of anything else. I hope that you get to feeling better soon.
