It is the end of week 1 for me. And what an interesting week it has been. I started off strong, tracking all of my food and completing the January Jumpstart videos for days 1, 2 and 3. My calories were going down each day, and I was making pretty good food choices.
The week was quite busy as well. My two dogs had their teeth cleaned, and one had two tumors removed from his chest at the same time. I am now making him wear a T-shirt that says "Ruff Stuff" to keep him from licking his wounds. He kind of hates me for it, and I may or not randomly bust out laughing when I see him. Hey, it's better than the cone of shame isn't it?
I suppose now would be the time when I tell you my measurements, and how many minutes I exercised and what not. Well, also during the course of this week I have been caring for my sick fiance. And I mean SICK. It was sad and sometimes gross, but I love him. And what does he do to show his appreciation. He shares his virus with me.
Aww, honey, you shouldn't have....really
So now here it is, the 1st day of the new year and the end of my first week, and I am sick. The doctor at urgent care told me: Diagnosis - virus, Treatment - sleep, Prognosis - you're screwed for the next few days. She may or may not have actually said those words, but that is pretty much what I heard. I was hoping to be able to curb this from reaching the full potential I saw in my fiance, but nope, I'm in for a real treat I guess.
This also means that I am not weighing myself, or exercising for the next few days, or tracking my daily calorie intake of four graham crackers and a glass of juice. I'm also not going to continue the January Jumpstart challenge right now. I'm going to re-join the challenge after I am healthy again, so I can really give it my full effort.
Until then...I will look forward to better days and wish you all a happy and HEALTHY New Year!
