This week has been a doozie! My son bestowed upon me the gift of his sickness so from Thursday evening until yesterday afternoon I was sick. I mean sick. I had horrible body aches, nausea and was soooo dehydrated that I could not even urinate (too much info I know but that is reality)! Partnered with my lack of proper personal hygiene, I was ugly. I mean ugly. I was past the point of just sick, I looked like I was on my death bed and I often felt that way too. I have never been in so much pain deep down to my bones. I mean my toes were aching. Thank God my son was able to entertain himself for ohhhh 4 days! He did great and having all his favorite shows recorded helped but I must admit that I started to feel guilty for using the television as a babysitter. But I am over it. If I have learned anything from my 17 months of parenting it is that you do what you have to do to get by at that moment. Television is what I had to do. I did it. I'm over it. So until yesterday I hadn't eaten anything so to say the least, when my appetite returned to me, I was hungry. I was starving. I needed a sub sandwich and I needed it now! So I did. And it was delicious. Paired with a large diet fountain drink and BAM...I was back to myself again. I even showered. I can actually say that I am happy to be back at work because I know I am alive!
I weighted in at WW this morning and was down another -2.6 pounds which makes my total a whopping -8.2 pounds. I know that my sickness had a lot to do with that but I'm not being picky, I'm taking it! I just am being realistic that I may not really lose much, if any, next week. But for now, I am happy and hungry!
Father's Day this year happened to fall on my 6th wedding anniversary so it was a double celebration day! Mike and I took Mason to a local baseball park and enjoyed a double hitter of 14 innings (a little long for Mason) but the game was fun. We had great seats and who can resist stadium food, not me! I indulged on a few bites of Mason's hot dog, french fries and treated myself to a diet coke. Mmmmmm, delicious!
So I am happy to be here, to be alive, to be well! I am supposed to go out to a 'fancy' dinner with Mike on Tuesday evening to celebrate our anniversary like adults. We will have to wait and see how my food selection goes for that! I'll keep you posted. Oh on another note, I ran into a girlfriend (we will call her Lou to protect her identity) I have not seen in a few months at WW this morning and she has lost 20 pounds! Way to go Lou! You looked great and I am so happy for you! Keep it up!
You keep it up too my blog friends and family. Have a fantastic week!
