Still not much to report, I’m STILL sick. Finally went to doctor yesterday to make sure I’m going to live. I have an upper respiratory infection and laryngitis. Doctor wrote me off work for the rest of this week, and prescribed some meds. The only thing I can do is rest and get better. All I have felt like doing is sleeping, so that is pretty much what my life has been for the past couple of weeks. Little bit of work followed by a couple hours of sleep.
I have continued logging my food and wearing my Fitbit for what it’s worth. I’m trying to sustain some of the good habits that are within my control. I did weigh in this week, I gained 1.8 pounds. No surprise there. I will work it off when I get better.
I decided that I am going to set some new goals for next week to help me focus more on wellness rather than fitness and weight loss. Here they are:
Week 38 Goals
- If I feel tired, I’m going to rest
- Drink lots of fluids and keep myself hydrated
- If I ever want to get my voice back, I need to shut up for now =)
- Walk 4000 steps per day this week.
- Track all of my food.
Okay, so those aren’t goals to get me more fit or lose weight, but more to keep me sane and feel like I’m accomplishing something until I get well. I think the 4000 steps per day is doable, I will just take little walks and try to enjoy some of this nice sunshine we have going on right now and get some fresh air.
I put the number one goal of getting rest up there because I feel lazy and then feel guilty for doing nothing and insist that I need to get going and do more things. That thinking seems to just get me in more trouble. I also I’m just going stir crazy because this crap has stuck around so long and just can’t stand sitting around. BORING! Anyway, thats where I’m at right now. Hopefully I will get better soon and will be back to my normal self. Thanks for checking in guys and Happy Spring!
