Happy St. Patrick's day! I don't really celebrate it, but I'm wearing green anyway. :)

I'm still sick. I tried to get a hold of the doctor yesterday, but still haven't heard back. I've been on antibiotics since Thursday and I'm still feeling horrible. It stinks because I haven't been able to enjoy the nice weather, it was in the 80's here the last couple of days and I didn't even want the sunlight in the house because I've had a headache. I need to get rid of this junk quickly! I'm sick of being sick.

Needless to say that with not feeling good I haven't been exercising and I haven't been eating well. My hubby bought us bikes the other day but I get tired and feverish just walking around the house so I'm holding off on any bike rides for now. I really want to get better so I can get back to running too. Okay I need to stop whining and just focus on doing what I can to get better. I've been taking OTC meds, a prescription nasal spray, and antibiotics and I'm not getting better, so I don't know what to do other than just wait it out.

I hope that everyone is doing well and feeling healthy today! :)

Spring fever is not supposed to be literal. I stayed home from work and luckily already had a doctor appointment yesterday. I have sinus and ear infection, yuck. I still am not feeling great today but I'm going to work. I have things to do and at least my job isn't very strenuous and I can go home early if I need to. This has really put a damper on my running. My head feels like it could explode at any second and if I tried to run I'd probably get so dizzy I wouldn't make it home, or I'd start throwing up, and I just don't think that would be a good idea. I'm on meds so hopefully by tomorrow I can at least go out for a walk or something. I have to stop gaining weight and I know if I exercise that will at least put the brakes on the gain.

My kids went with my mom to visit my dad today. They'll be gone until Sunday, so I should have some good rest time. Tonight I'm going to watch a couple of movies that I can't watch when they're around (I love scary movies) and just spend some quality time with the dogs since my hubby will be working and try to clear out my sinuses. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I finished my first week of couch to 5K yesterday! Yay me! I did this program last year and it really helped me to get into running without hurting myself, so I'm going to stick with it again. I thought about not taking a day off from running since it's going to be super nice out again this evening, but I need to take a day between runs. Last night my legs really hurt and my joints were yelling at me while I was out, so I know that day off will help. Tonight I'm going to do some yoga to try to get stretched out, then hopefully a run tomorrow will happen.

I ate a little over my RDI yesterday, but I feel like I didn't do horrible with the foods I chose. I know I could have done worse, because I have in the past. I'm really trying to work on not eating junk in the evening. I have that craving monster that hits at midday and at about 8 p.m., and I have to learn to get past it without feeding it. I am mastering that midday craving, but the nighttime is hard.

I've got my day mostly planned out, so there shouldn't be too many surprises. I have a moster of a headache today though because I think I have a sinus infection (again), luckily I already had a doctor appointment set up for tomorrow, so hopefully if the headache turns migraine or there is an infection I can get some relief.

I hope everyone is having a great Hump Day!!

I finally recorded my weight and I'm not surprised that I'm up so high. I can use excuses all day, but too much junk and not enough exercise are to blame, and that's on me. Yesterday was a bad eating day and I got no exercise because I was trying to comfort myself through a headache. I should have done some exercise to help, but I got off work late, didn't feel good, and was tired, not a good combo. Today I have a headache again, but it's so nice outside that I am going to take advantage and go for a run/walk, and I bet my headache gets better. This is my last day of week 1 of couch to 10K! One week down only like 15 more to go. :) I'm taking it easy on myself and trying not to push it too hard yet. I need to start doing workouts on days between runs now too.

Like everyone I have my ups and downs, my high points and low, but I'm not quitting. I'm going to push though. My goals are to run at least 3 days a week and get exercise at least 1 other day, to eat within my RDI, eat more fruit and veggies every week, and drink at least 64 oz. of water every day. Those are reasonable goals. I know that with those goals any weight I lose will be an added bonus because the real prize will be feeling great, mentally and physically.

Have a great day!!
