I survived what I now like to call
The Great Epidemic of 2012.
Seriously, I was so dang sick.
Fevers all week long.
I spent the majority of my days
in ugly combinations of
bad flannel pants, tee shirts, old man sweaters,
a much over-due for hair dye "do"
and one earth-quaking cough.
I resided here most days.
but it looked like this
for days and days.
On Friday afternoon my fever was gone.
I finally got to see the grand kids on Sunday.
That was the worst part.
I missed them so much.
I didn't work out but I did keep up
with all my bootcamp assignments,
my reading, and my food logging.
I stayed on the food plan,
over simplified... 40% carbs, 40% protein, and 20% fat.
I had to make myself eat most times.
My stomach had a bug too.
In the old days, I would have suffered with
ice cream and buttered toast.
I compromised with whole wheat toast(no butter)
and Greek yogurt.
Blessedly, I am down a total of 10 pounds
and anxious to resume
more vigorous workouts.
Until my lungs clear up,
I am told by my coach to
keep my activities low intensity and low minutes.
I tried ignoring Coach
and nearly coughed up my left lung.
So I guess it pays to heed that advice.
I watched a show on Netflix
while I was down.
Land Girls, Season 1.
I am in love with it.
Now I have to wait for Season 2 and 3.
It is a BBC program
and I cannot figure out where to watch it
for free in the meantime.
Can anybody help a girl out?
You'd be the berries. :)
