I started off doing so well this month. Running consistently, eating in my range. I lost 3 pounds that first week, for Pete's sake! And then...

I got sick. No big deal really. It's either a cold or a lovely case of seasonal allergies kicking in. Whatever it is, I knew my 5K was at risk. And so what else do you do when you're feeling too sick to work out? Oh, I don't know, start eating like you're purposefully TRYING to gain weight? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Makes sense. Not.

So after a week of this, I'm back up 2 pounds. The race is today and I'm not running it.

I'm actually bored with my own laziness. A whole week of overeating and watching a lot of TV. Ugh. Enough already. I'm ready to get back on track. I need to get moving again.

So there's my little update. April so far has been a wash. One great week and one crappy week. Reboot!

    Mondays are always a good day to start fresh! Use today to rest and prepare for the week ahead. emoticon emoticon

    I hope you're feeling better. I sympathize with the eating while sick. I always need something to go with my tea or with the meds. It always shows up in the end (usually my REAR end)

    I know how you feel! But don't despair! Two pounds is nothing and you'll lose that quickly once you start moving again.

    I know what you mean. Allergy colds are the worst.

    Aw... Next time, don't give up on yourself! The two pounds you gained isn't fat anyway - probably mostly bloat. And you probably would have done ok at the race anyway... sometimes being around everyone else is just what you need to pick yourself up again. You can do it, JODROX! :-D
