Shrinking...

Friday, November 08, 2013

Our roommate got this miserable cold.
Then, my bf got this miserable cold.
Now, I have this miserable cold.

My bf told me--and I didn't believe him--that this cold not only drains you, it sucks pounds off of you. Who wouldn't put up with a week or two of a nasty cold, to lose a few pounds--right? LOL
Well, he wasn't kidding. I don't know how many pounds I've actually lost, but my clothes are slipping off me and my belly is definitely flatter.
Now, I know this is temporary. I'm not counting on it sticking around, not at all (darnit). I haven't been able to work out, I'm not really eating much, and I hydrate constantly (someone told me it helps break up sinus congestion, and I was on it right away, lol!)... I'm doing my best to make what I can out of a crappy situation.
Today I was supposed to work 9:30-6, but my coworker goofed and scheduled her flight for this morning instead of tomorrow morning, and I'm the only one who could come in. Usually, my policy is that, as a bank teller, I can sit here and feel miserable just as well as I can sit at home and feel miserable... Today, though, I'd give anything to be at home. I actually took a half-day yesterday and left early, which worked out well since it was bf's birthday. (I got major gf brownie points...being sick, he just wanted to hang out at home, so my gift(s) to him was a nice bottle of scotch (saved my pennies for that one!!) and a little ice cream cake (his favorite). He just kept thanking me, all day...I was practically soaring!) We hung out and watched tv and relaxed, and he said it was just exactly what he needed. :-)
I did manage to sleep through 10 alarms this morning (on the phone and with the regular alarm clock)--think my body is trying to make me sleep?--but woke up barely in time to get out the door to work. Tonight I'm meeting a girlfriend to grab "Asian street fare" at a local place...chicken and noodle bowl, here I come!! lol

Hopefully, I'll recover over my three-day weekend!
