I’ll bet you thought you’d never see me again…
I was starting to wonder about that myself, although it was never my intent to stay away for so long.
Unfortunately, I’ve been pretty sick since picking up some “really nasty virus” (my doctor’s words) while visiting my son in New Mexico for Christmas.
Rod (my hubby) has been even worse, it hit him so bad he spent a whole day in the ER while they tested for flu, pneumonia and replaced the fluids he’d lost because of nausea – he hadn’t been able to eat or drink much for 3 days.
For about 2 weeks we both were sleeping 16 - 18 hours a day
I’ve been trying to take care of both of us and haven’t wanted to even think about things like exercise or even checking into SparkPeople regularly – I’m exhausted.
I’ve been making a LOT of homemade soup, and not much else.
I weighed myself this morning thinking that being sick for a month and not eating much except soup would have caused at least a LITTLE weight loss
I was wrong – I’ve gained another 2 pounds.
And on top of everything else I threw my back out getting out of bed this morning!
So now I’m discouraged as well as sick.
I’m starting to plan ahead though, I really do want to come back to my teams and start getting back to a more normal daily routine.
If it wasn’t so cold I’d be thinking about resuming my daily walks but that won’t happen for another couple of weeks at least.
I’m still planning on joining the “Y” but it looks like it will be February before I make it down there
This hasn’t been my usual type blog – I really do try and be more positive than this but today I mainly wanted to let my SparkFriends know I’m still around and WILL be back ….
