Sick -- and Not Just in the Head

I have some sort of cold or something. Probably allergy related, being that it's that time of the year. But then again, living in the South, it's always that time of year. Since I got my own personal Typhoid Mary, I've been getting them a lot more often, however, it is better than when I was pregnant, thankfully.

But I spent most of today and yesterday in the house, doing nothing but trying to coax my body into fighting this thing off. Obviously, I'm eating whatever I feel like -- including three sleeves of Premium Saltines and two half-boxes of Kashi cereal. Way to fall completely off the wagon, huh?

But I'm feeling some better today, especially after a two hour nap with my daughter. If I'm a notch up tomorrow, I'll be back on the diet. But only if I'm feeling better. I won't be doing anything in the way of exercise this weekend, except maybe some golf, and sitting on my butt at the Symphony. But by Monday, I should be back up to 100%, and back at the Y.

I still haven't figured out quite how to manage the carbs and my workouts together. I think I'll just start out with a slice of whole grain bread. (No pumpernickel in sight at the grocery store.) I'll see how I feel during/after the workout and then go from there. I would just like to be able to do as much as possible before the Mini Match and autocross this weekend.

Guess we'll see how it goes.

I'm sorry you're feeling bad :( Hopefully you'll be better tomorrow -- Just go to Outback for the pumpernickel (isn't that what that complimentary loaf is?!!!) Publik makes YUMMY marble rye -- it's part pumpernickel, don't know how rye works into the equation...or if there's a publix anywhere around Greenville -- wish there was one here! Feel better!!!!
