The past three weeks I have been sidelined by illness. The upper respiratory infection I had was something I just couldn't get over. It turned into severe bronchitis that took me out of work for several days. There was an ear infection in there, too. I got back to work last Monday, but have been super occupied trying to keep my head above water on a day-to-day basis. No time yet to catch up on the work that didn't get done while I was sick. This weekend I was attending to personal matters that haven't gotten done while I was sick (banking, shopping, car registration, renewing my driver's license, cleaning the fridge, etc.). I'm still behind the eight-ball at work, trying to keep up on a day to day basis. Have two cats going to the vet tomorrow to get "fixed." And in the midst of all of this, a sibling had a family crisis situation.
So, I am finally back online. I'm tracking food today for the first time in at least a week and a half. I don't really remember. I was out of the pool for three weeks. I'm getting back into the routine slowly, taking it easy, with rest days in between. Boy do my muscles feel the increased activity! Just the housework I did yesterday put me in bed for about an hour to rest my back. And last night, I had the heating pad out to help me go to sleep.
So, no, I have not abandoned my health-improvement plan! I'm just apparently taking the long route to get there.
