Weight: 214.2 lb (-1.6 lbs this week, -11.8 lbs total)
Emily promised me a present at 200 pounds. I’m excited and it will probably only take another 1-1.5 months! Maybe less since half marathon training is really gearing up fast.
Tragically, I think I mostly lost muscle this week. I’m a giant baby when I’m sick and I’ve had a bad head cold/maybe flu/turning in to sinus and ear infections since Sunday afternoon. I’ve also developed a raging case of illness induced anorexia. It’s hard to force myself to eat when I’m already having trouble finding time to eat because of my crazy work schedule. My diet is mostly liquid and semi-solid right now cause it’s easier to choke down.
That picture reminds me, I tried blueberries and raspberries for the first time last week. Yummy and I didn’t die of anaphylaxis, so I think that’s another food on my list of food that won’t kill me.
Anywhoodle, this cold also means I haven’t run since Sunday or lifted since Monday and I’m honestly to0 sick to have the jitters from lack of exercise. I’m hoping to be well enough for my 7 mile long run on Saturday, but I doubt I’ll be up to running again before that. I feel like all of my momentum is completely shot in the foot. I’m sleeping in as late as possible (I still have to go to work) and I spend all my time not at work in bed. And yes, it’s been 3 days but I’m a totally drama queen.
I’m hoping antibiotics from Boston doctor will happen tomorrow so I can cut this sinus infection off at the pass. The problem with antibiotics is that they usually make me really sick to my stomach and I’ve had Clostridium difficle from them (bacteria in the intestine that can only grow when you kill off the natural flora with antibiotics). Still, if I can’t exercise soon I’m going to go crazy from the exerguilt.
My dad is supposed to be coming in this weekend for the Dublin Irish Festival. I HAVE to be healthy by then, so I’m taking homeopathic medicine right now too. Desperation thy name is Sarah.
In other news, there is still time to enter my Everstride giveaway!
Anyone else got the summer creeping crud? It seems to be going around. What do you do to feel better fast? Any advice on when to start running again? I assume I should wait until I’m not dizzy all the time.
