A few weeks ago, I recommitted. I told myself that I was going to get back into my healthy habits. I'd eat right and work out.
Bronchitis. Yep. So no working out for this chick. I felt ok most of the time - a bit tired here and there sometimes. But any time I did anything even remotely physical - run, lift things, walk from the couch to the bathroom, speak more than 4 words at a time - I'd start coughing this weird, airy cough that would then continue for hours.
It was stupid. Seriously. I wasn't throwing up. I wasn't in bed sleeping all the time. But it set me back.
Yoda wasn't happy, but it was more of an I-feel-sorry-for-you than a You're-being-a-wimp thing.
So I haven't done much this past week except go to work, watch tv, and sleep.
This doesn't bode well for June 8th's 5K. But I signed up for it anyway.
Granted, I could have eaten better this week. I ate okay thanks to portion control, but when walking across a room brings on hours of coughing, one doesn't really want to stand in the kitchen cooking. Nathan was very helpful, cooking and cleaning. But I still could have done better.
Next time, I will. But this week, I'm calling it a win. I think I still even managed to lose 2 pounds!
I meet with Yoda tonight for a workout. We're playing it by ear and if I start to cough then we're shortening the session.
Also, my gym at the house is DONE!!! I shall take pictures tonight and I'll post all about it tomorrow!
