I want to sleep...
Flu. Ugh. Temp of 95.7, body and joint aches, slight nausea, headache just short of a migraine, bowel issues, congestion, post nasal drip, can't sleep. Not awesome. I thought losing weight was supposed to make me healthier; I'm tracking and exer... Read more
The week has barely started and I'm already done.
Yeah, this is gonna be kind of a negative entry. Fair warning.
This weekend was rough. Ben and I argued over the stupidest little things, and I keep trying to ask myself, "Is this the hill I want to die on?", as my friend Katie says. (She h... Read more
Ben is definitely feeling better, and so am I.
Ben is almost back to his usual self, bouncing off the walls. (In fact, he hasn't had his meds yet today but he's pretty good with focusing. Hmm... I wonder how I can use that information...) He was pretty good yesterday, no recurrences of vomit... Read more
You take the good, you take the bad...
Ok, enough of that, to defend my sanity by giving some of you an earworm. You'll understand why by the end of this entry. (Also, if any of the words don't make sense, I'm writing this on my phone. I'll try to catch them, but I may not get all of... Read more
February 18 check-in. Or: I'm baaaaaack...
So, the PMS monster bit me HARD during the last week. I'm talking full-on rage and tears and ragey tears and... it was NOT pretty. I have to give my guys credit for dealing with it pretty well.
It didn't help that the weather was crappy, wi... Read more
February 12 check-in.
Goal 1: get rid of the concussion symptoms. This is pretty much done, at least most of the time, but I'm not really feeling like risking a relapse. I'm on another site, SuperBetter, and they have a couple of tracks that are about recovering from... Read more
February 8 check in
Goal 1: has changed. Now it's "get rid of these stupid concussion symptoms". Time is all that will help that. (Explanation below.)
Goal 2: Workout 5+ days a week: On hold until I feel better.
Goal 3: Measure and weigh, etc.: I've been ... Read more
It's not even noon and already I've had a day.
This all starts last night. Ben kept pushing and pushing when it was time for bed, and then I heard him playing and I caught him with the light on, so he didn't get to sleep until almost 11pm. Neither did I, but I'm not 6. Naturally, this mornin... Read more
Goal 1: Kick this cold. I can officially say that I'm good to go on that one.
Goal 2: Workout 5+ days a week: So far, so good. I did Cardio Sculpt today, and it was BRUTAL, but I finished it!! Still haven't run, because we got another big p... Read more
Goal Accountability 2/3
Goal 1: Kick this cold. More or less done. I might go running tomorrow. (Last time I went running, I had an asthma attack, which is really unusual for me. So unusual, in fact, that I didn't realize that's what it was for a while.)
Now that... Read more
February goals and an update.
My goals for February:
1. Kick this cold.
2. Workout 5+ days a week... get on some sort of program. (Suggestions welcome! I want to run 3 times a week, but I need alternatives for when the weather/conditions aren't cooperating.)
3. Trac... Read more
I got dressed today and realized that my bra fits again! And my jeans fit better, except in the calves... they're tighter there, which makes sense, since I'm running and walking a lot more.
Yay me! Oh, and happy Chinese new year!... Read more
Feeling better and worse, yay me!
I'm not even being sarcastic. I was kind of grumpy earlier because I ache so much from running yesterday, and my knees are complaining. Then I realized that I wouldn't be aching so much, knees excepted, if I hadn't actually pushed my limits yest... Read more
I slept all day, and I wish I could go back to sleep. This cold is awful; I'm all congested, and I'm achy all over. Even my teeth hurt. My joints hurt especially. There is so not any exercise gonna happen today.
I'm very cranky, so I'm gonn... Read more
What a weekend.
All day Friday my eye was bothering me. I couldn't figure out why it felt like I had a tiny something in it, but I couldn't see anything in there. Saturday I woke up with the entire right half of my right eye filled with blood. We missed the tra... Read more
