The last couple of days...

I am getting SO frustrated with my internet and pute!  I’m not sure which one is being the pain in the ass, but I thought it was the net until I decided to shut down.  It then took forever and five days to reboot.  I hope I don’t have a virus… that’s the last thing I need right now!  I mean after all, I am just now recovering from being sick myself!

Yes, that is why I haven’t been posting the last couple of days.  I have been sick with something and I’m not sure what it was.  It started out feeling like just really horrid allergies, but I could control it with the right meds.  However, I knew we were going out of town for the day, so I ended up taking another med, Zyrtec, thinking it would be better and help all day.  Boy was I wrong!  As the day progressed, I just got worse and worse.  By Saturday night, I was so sick I was miserable.  When we got home, all I wanted to do was chill for a bit and go to bed.  I ended up spending that night and all the next day in bed.  I finally got up for a bit yesterday, but I wasn’t good for much and got swimmy headed a lot.  I did do a few things, but overall, the weekend has been a wash with hubby doing schoolwork, his brothers party on Saturday, and then me being sick.  So, here we are at Tuesday and I’m a bit better and have been up and cleaning.  I’ve already caught up the vacuuming, the dishes, picked up, and got laundry going.  Fun fun.  But at least the house doesn’t feel like a nasty mess.  It still isn’t great, but it’s progress.  I think I had some sort of sinus infection brought on by bad allergies.  AND, it doesn't help that my in-laws house is in BAD shape and I think I'm allergic to their house... namely mold.

Before I got sick, we did make some progress on the kiddo's rooms.  We got a lot purged out of oldest’s room and started ‘de-babying’ youngest’s.  It was weird taking down the baby stuff and putting in the ‘big boy’ things.  He already seems to really like it!  But I am hoping that this afternoon I can get in there and get a few more things done.  I don’t want to over do it, though.  Plus, we HAVE to get some yard work done before the rain hits.  Not sure what all we will get done, but I know that we need to get some stuff going and do our best.  I do sorta wish the hubby had taken the Summer off.  I just don’t know how we are ever going to get all this done with hubby working the way he is.  With me and the kiddos here by ourselves a lot, I don’t get much done.  I’ve been trying, but it’s just not happening.  Been trying to work out some sort of schedule with our sitter to help us out, but so far, even THAT hasn't been working.

On a good note, I HAVE been doing well on working out!  I haven’t while I’ve been sick and won’t today, but I hope I can tomorrow once the coughing has let up.  The coughing started this morning and is usually a good sign that it is all breaking up.  It’s not painful, just annoying.  But I will take it if all of this stuff is going to clear up.  I sure don’t want to miss too many workout days.  I got in 3 last week and hope to get in 2 or 3 this week as long as I feel ok.  I’m only doing Pilates and stretching, but so far, I am enjoying it.  I’m not going to stress on the cardio.  I think once we get a few more things done, that will just evolve.  It did before!  Funny how as things get done and cleared up, I find the time and energy to workout.  Lol

My weight this AM (since I’ve not updated lately) is 188.0.  Funny thing is, the day before I actually FELT sick, my weight went up.  Then the day I showed the most symptoms, my weight started going back down.  And today, I am back at 188.  It’s sorta weird!  I guess when I am sick, my body retains water.  I’m not sure why, but I AM glad I went ahead and weighed just to see what was going on.  I won’t lie, though…. I am a tiny bit pissy that once again something came up on my ‘official’ weigh-in day.  It seems like something always does!  I am thinking of changing my official day of my weigh-ins to another day.  Maybe in the middle of the week or something.  I know that sounds funny, but I am so over having a bad weigh-in every single Sunday!  AARGH!  And then, come Monday or Tuesday, a good one.  But it’s too late at that point.  I guess in the end it doesn’t matter and what matters is that slowly but surely, my weight is making a downward trend.  I can’t remember the last time I saw 188.  I think maybe 1 time before I got preggo with youngest.  That would be nearly 3 years ago.  Wow… that’s major.  I guess it just hit me that youngest is almost 2 and it’s been that long since I saw 18?…  Makes me sorta anxious to get to the 170’s.  I don’t remember the 170’s at ALL.  I don’t think I’ve seen those since before oldest was born…  That would be about 8 years or more. 

Man alive I’ve made this post a mile long!  I guess I need to get off of here and see what else I can do or feel like doing.  It took forever just to get on here!  Have a good one everybody!


  1. Ooooooh I'm so excited that your still in the 180's!!!!!!! Keep up the good work!

  2. I hope you feel better soon and so far things are looking great that you've rooted in the 180's! I've been thinking about my milestones again lately too as they start creeping up, in less than 10 pounds I'll be at my all time low and I can't wait to take it down!

  3. I hate being sick! My body is being confusing right now, it wants to be sick...and it'll irritate me with certain symptons for a few days then go away then new ones will start. It's like MY GOD JUST COME ALL AT ONCE AND MAKE ME SUFFER!

    Anyways hope you're doing better, 188 is awesome! I'm also looking for people to join my biggest loser challenge just because I'm failing at motivating myself. Are you in? Sundays will be weigh in day since it's the only day I remember haha. I haven't set up teams as of yet, so it might start next week. :p let me know!

  4. Yes, yes, yes, join the challenge! :)
