Holding Pattern, Again

Well, I don’t want to jinx it but I think I’m getting better!  I only sound like I have tuberculosis for a few hours in the morning, and then my cough pretty much subsides until it’s time to go to bed and then I can kill it with codeine.  I’m still quite congested, but my face doesn’t feel like it’s going to explode anymore, and I have a plethora of decongestants at my disposal here at work.  Thank god, seriously, because after being sick for over a month now I am ready to feel better.

Something else I am ready to do? Work out again! I’m getting SO fat, and I’m not just saying that to be dramatic. Every morning when I get dressed I have to strategically pick something that stretches because I am expanding at an alarming rate.  With a trip to Vegas next month and a wedding to be in the month after that, this is not the time to pack on the pounds.  Luckily, I was feeling well enough by the end of the day yesterday to head to the gym for the first time in over a week.  I did 60 minutes of cardio split between the elliptical (40 min) and the treadmill (20 min of hill walking) followed by a one minute plank.

It felt good to be back in the gym, even though I took it easy and didn’t break too much of a sweat.  I’m thinking about finally taking advantage of all the classes my work gym offers and heading to spin at noon today.  Someone remind me to go over there at 11:30?  There’s also a yoga class on Monday nights I want to start taking, I need to switch things up, and after falling off the Live Fit wagon two weeks ago I don’t really think I’m going to get back on.  I enjoyed building muscle and really feeling stronger, but it was just bulking me up without slimming me down, and I couldn’t wait 4 more weeks to get to Phase 3 and see if I slimmed down then.  I need to workout in a way that I know works for me.

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday, hope it’s not terrible.

  2. I’m glad you’re finally starting to feel better. That’s a long freaking time to be sick.
    Good luck with the house. I’m still trying to get over the three closets. I have one. Total. In my whole place. Three closets would be amazing, and a perfectly logical reason to buy more shoes. Can’t let them be empty right?

  3. Glad you’re feeling better dear. Sometimes I think a good workout actually helps clear out my head when I feel all stuffy and congested too.

  4. Yeah, livefit was pretty womp womp for me. I’m ready to get back to my own ways. At least then I’ll only have myself to blame for being fat again.
