Winning! Well, mostly...

Yes, I'm sorry, I am going to bitch just a little more about being sick. I can't believe how horrible I feel. My throat hurts so badly, when I cough I expect there to be blood (there is not). Ok, I know that's a little TMI, but I haven't been sick like this is so long, and I'm just tired of being in constant pain.
Ok, bitching is done. I thought I would try and get it out in the first few moments and then move on.
I am eating fantastically on plan. My workouts are still lacking, and it's because I am sick. I know that is not an excuse. There are many people out there a whole lot worse off than I that are working out like machines. I'm going to get my act together on the workout front. I am planning on doing at LEAST a long walk tomorrow, and I am going back to Tuff Girl on Saturday morning. My big goal is to start running again. Now that I have figured out how to keep my heel happy after a high intensity workout, I really feel like I can start running again safely.
I have taken a peak at the scale, and I am very happy so far. Weigh in is officially Sunday, so I will update then.
I was thinking about how I haven't been sick in soooooooo long. I really think it has to do with the amount of stuff I am involved with right now. I work a full time job, and part time job. I am in school part time. I am involved with church and church choir. I am co founder of a theater company. I workout 3-4 times a week. I have 2 small kids. Im trying to keep up with sll thehousework, grocery shopping..ect. Every time I go over it all in my head, thinking that something has to give, I simply can't figure out anything to let go. What a busy girl to do? Suck it up, I guess. I am lucky to have all of these things. I am incredibly blessed to be working, to have a family... I am so grateful.
I'm going to work tomorrow. I have to at least try... Even though my voice is still very weak, and I don't know how much work I can do without it. But I can't sit home another day. I'll go nutty! Oh, thatsanother thing I am super grateful for...a boss and coworkers who are understanding and caring. That is a HUGE blessing!
I just realized. This post is a little disjunt. Sorry about that. I'm headed to bed and praying I will wake up to a painless working throat!


  1. I hope you feel better soon, I haven't felt well all week long, not sure if its allergies, sinus' or what but I hate being under the weather!

  2. I hope you start feeling better soon! I hate having a too full schedule, but it happens sometimes!

  3. It's great that you're still on plan despite being ill. You've definitely got your hands full! Exercise is important, but sometimes workout before fully recovering can set you back even longer ... listen to your body. I hope you feel better soon!!
