Icky Sicky...

Thursday, November 14, 2013

I swear, I decide to get fit and every germ,. virus, cough/cold/flu and infection attacks my body. I've literally had SOME kind of misery every day for the last two weeks. UGH. It's like my body immediately freaks out and says "NO!! SHE'S TORTURING THE FAT CELLS AGAIN!! HARD SHUT DOWN!!" And then I quit. It's happened before--I get all motivated, I get all set and into a groove, and then WHAM. I have GOT to come up with a fail-safe for this. Maybe it just needs to be the 10-minutes-a-day thing...

But today, I feel like I have re-joined the land of the living!!
I've been miserable for over a week, and finally started to turn the curve after sleeping 10-12 hours a day over my three-day weekend... I now feel like I can finally breathe, so tonight is my triumphant return to the exercise bike (and old episodes of The Biggest Loser)!! Bf is home late tonight, too, so I'll have the whole evening to get caught up on stuff!
Last night, we made a giganto turkey (coupons, sales, more coupons....) for dinner, mostly for the leftovers and ease of being able to just throw dinners and lunches together. Plus, we spent last year's Thanksgiving at a friend of bf's house...and they didn't give us any leftovers! We were both SERIOUSLY bummed. So, when we decided that we were going to a friend's house this year, too, we up and decided that the no-leftovers thing would NOT stand this year. So, a shopping trip and a 17-lb (SEVENTEEN POUND!!!) turkey later... Yeah.
So, tonight's projects include: trimming the carcass and making stock (first time!! woo!)...then using the stock to make some broccoli-cheddar soup in the crock pot (for lunches...nom!)...also biking/watching Biggest Loser, cleaning up the rest of the kitchen from last night (it's a MESS), putting away the last of the laundry (yeah, we've been sick and unmotivated), and baking bf's pumpkin pie that just didn't get made last night, lol
I think I can do some of those things at the same time, though, so...
I also need to coupon, at some point...they upped our security settings at work, and now we can't do hardly ANYTHING online, I have to do it at home now. Blegh.

But exercising is taking tippity-top-top priority tonight!
I haven't gained...I haven't lost... (Forgot to enter my weight on Wednesday, but I did weigh in!) And all that says to me is that I'm doing--meh, ok...not ideal, not perfect, not right for getting the results that I want...but I'm not just sitting around on my bum eating bonbons and Doritos, y'know? So, now I just have to ramp it back up to where I was before being sick...

    Sometimes maintaining is the best we can do.

    I've also had years where I went to someone else's house for Thanksgiving and didn't get any leftovers. Did not like that one bit! So regardless of where Thanksgiving dinner is, I make a turkey of some sort (even a turkey breast) with all the trimmings so I can have the leftovers. How else do you get through the long weekend? emoticon

    With all that is going on with your body and illness, maintaining is a total win! Remember that!
