Bad news and good news

Friday, January 04, 2013

I'm sick. Blah. I felt kind of off Tuesday evening but got in a long walk and felt great afterwards. Yesterday morning I had a bit of a sore throat but that was sniffles, coughing or sneezing. This morning though, I feel like I have been hit by a truck. Sore, scratchy throat, stuffed nose, dry cough. So I'm staying in today. I'm going to spend the day drinking tea, juice and water, eating lightly. I'm going to try and get in a bit of exercise too....even just 20 minutes of Gold's Gym on the Wii would be great. Just enough to sweat a bit. :)

The rest of the day will be spent with my knitting. I'm working on a test knit and the deadline is midnight tonight. Should be a scramble to the finish. *lol*

In other bad news, I stepped on the scale yesterday. GAH!!!!!! 196.2 pounds. I gained back EVERYTHING I lost in 2011. Stupid broken leg last spring. Anyway, I am resetting all of my tickers today and this year I take the weight off again. Once my cold is gone, I'm going to really get back to my running. I don't know how many official races I will do this year, just due to lack of funds, but I will make use of the Virtual Races here on SP.

And now it's time for the good news: I met someone. We started chatting just before Christmas and met for coffee on December 26th. Since then, we've seen each other 5 times. He meets my holy trinity of nice eyes, hands and smile. He's very sexy. And he makes me feel very sexy. He's smart, funny, easy to talk to and a real gentleman. He opens doors for me, carries my bags for me. He ran me over to the grocery store on NYE, and he packed my groceries for me. We have both taken our profiles down on POF and we're going to see where this goes. He had planned on taking me out for dinner tomorrow...but with me being sick, I may have to cancel. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.
