Wednesday and recuperation!
So it is Wednesday and December 7th. Today is my brothers birthday. Happy Birthday Paul Lee. I do not give my blog address to my family, but still wanted to put that out to the universe. It is also Pearl Harbor observance today!
I am on the mend with Strep Throat, and I am just now beginning to feel somewhat better. I can finally say that my throat is not like sand paper anymore. I am so ready for it to exit my home. I did get everything washed and Lysol sprayed yesterday in hopes of combating this damn bug.
I do not want a repeat of last year, right here at Christmas. Next week is our Christmas party and secret Santa at work, I would like to feel good for this.
I still have a couple of things to get for the boys and one possible thing for Alan. I believe that for the most part I am done. But I am sure I will pick up some odds and ends.
I am looking forward to Christmas this year because I will actually be off on the 23rd through the 27th. I never take this much time off at Christmas ever. It will be so nice. I like being home. I do know that my inbox will be overwhelmed when I return however.
For those of you wondering, I did not make my surgeon appointment yesterday, with Strep throat I thought I should reschedule as to not expose the office to this nasty crap. They were much appreciative. So I go see him on January 3rd.
I have been stuck at this weight now for a month, yes a month, I have not lost anything. I know, I have not gained either so that is at least something, but it is not acceptable. I have goals and I demand my body listen to me and let go of this damn fat! LOL It is not my restriction, as I still have issues with solid protein getting stuck, so I know my fill level is good. It is just lack of actual exercise.
I believe that it is in that mode of thinking, my body has figured me out, and what I put into it, and as to what kind of exercise it is going to get from me as well. Which I admit, has not been like it was. I know, I know, I have to work it, to get the results that I need.
It is so hard to want to get out into the cold and go, but you bet when this damn bug is gone, I am there. Cold or not, I need to swim, my muscles are crying, my brain is mush, and my body is wanting it's fix of movement more than anything.
I do hate when life happens and gets in the way of the habits that we have created. Why is it when it does, the first thing we let go of, is the one thing we need the most, exercise?
I am looking forward to Christmas break from school very much, it is hard to stay focused when you are sick. I still have to function and do my homework and it quite frankly sucks. I am thinking of taking the summer off. I am in no hurry to finish really, and I am getting so burned out as I have been going non stop now for 18 months.
Today will be a lazy day, hope to just rest and not do a whole heck of a lot.
