I've been sick


On Thursday my son came from daycare completely snotty. He was sneezing snot rockets and completely congested.  The next morning my husband stayed home with him. I was sort of glad that he stayed home instead of me because I tend to catch whatever my son gets. I thought that by my husband staying home with him that I would dodge the bullet.

Yeah right!

No such luck at all.

Saturday I woke up with a horrible sore throat and my nose was super stuffed. Even though I was not feeling well I still went about my day and did all my errands. By the time the evening rolled around I was feeling miserable though. I literally wanted to nose dive into the couch and sleep. However, when you’re a mom, there is no way in hell that you get to rest like that. Not even my husband was giving me a break. I kept telling him repeatedly that I didn't feel well and he kept treating me like I was up to my normal rockem’-sockem’ awesomeness.

Basically, I was sick all weekend through Tuesday. Today is the first day that I feel decent. During these four days I did absolutely nothing physical, well maybe if you count lifting your Theraflu tea to your mouth 25 times a cup (I totally just made that number up! Ha!) I even stayed home from work on Monday with my son because he had a bad cough.

Anyways, I've pretty much kicked it for the most part. Today I’m going to take it easy and walk/jog on my treadmill. I’m aiming for 4 miles tonight. Totally doable!

On another note, I didn't lose anything in February. It’s the first month that this has happened to me since starting this journey. I must either be building muscle or eating too much peanut butter. I think it’s the latter so I’m going to try to cut it to 1 tbsp. every other day instead of 2 tbsp. every day! Hahaha! I’m such a little piglet. I love peanut butter so much. It’ll be hard, but necessary.

Oh yeah, my vacation is 45 days away! I can’t wait to be in Mazatlan with my parents! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to be laying out here…
