sick, and sick and tired of excuses! lol

Monday, December 03, 2012

I've been sick for an entire week now, and it sucks since I haven't really been able to get a break and it isn't pretty trying to teach when you have a runny nose and a high fever. I don't know what i would rather have a runny nose or a stuffy nose, since now that my nose is all stuffed up I have a huge headache that has lasted for the last three days, ear ache, soar throat and body aches. I know I need to go to the doctor and pronto but I can't even get myself to do that either.
Even though I've been sick that is not what has me as blue as this page, well maybe a little lol. I have lost the motivation for anything. I am so tired lately that all i want to do is throw myself in bed and not get up for weeks if possible. I am thinking of asking for a week off from work, but I don't know how that will work out with my boss especially being the holiday season and we are already understaffed. Also, I haven't done much in the work out division. The time change really sucks! I get off from work at 5:30-6 by that time its almost pitch black outside and it makes me feel depressed that i can't go to my walks, and since I moved I had to sell my treadmill being that i live upstairs and the machine makes too much noise.
I do walk around the mall near my job but that isn't going as well, it doesnt make me feel like i've accomplished much.
Writing this makes me realize all the excuses I have come up with! LOL just need to get myself together, dust me off and start doing something. I am going to take my tv to get repaired and I will start my work out regime again, I can do WATP and some strength training right? Hopefully spring comes along fast and the days get brighter so that i can resume my daily walks outside.
Eating department has been a disaster! I have used the "I'm sick" excuse way too much and have taken advantage of the holidays to eat extra sugar, but thats stopping today! Thankfully, and I am thankfull for this, I ave not gained a pound with all that junk food I have fed myself.
So, my goals this month are:

1. get healthy (go to doctor and run all kinds of tests) I need to know where I stand in cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes etc.)
2. Eat more fruits and veggies. I do eat them but not as much as I should.
3. log in water intake. Miraculously this is a habit that i was able to stick with.
4. Do 30 mins a day of excercise, will use my computer for work out videos will i get the tv fixed.
5. do 3 days of strength training.

I will log and chart everything this month, if I reach my goal which does not include lbs lost only accomplishing this goals, I will buy me new walking tennis shoes, and new work out clothes. I am happy to say that I have worn out the shoes I bought last year ( they created horrible blisters the last time I wore them) and the clothes is very loose and torn now, excessive wear i think lol.

So no more excuses, this is my month, i was born this month and I can be reborn if i want to, make a new me!

    You poor girl. It's horrible being sick, isn't it?

    My DD3 has had a sore throat for the past week and not improving. I took her in to the doctor and he did a throat swab and didn't prescribe antibiotics. Crazy.

    Get well. It's a great idea you're going to get tested for other things as well, since you're there.

    Must be nice to be able to get out there buy some new shoes. I hate shopping for shoes. Why? I wear size 10.5 ladies wide. Try and find that!

    Hope you feel better soon.
