Week in review
Saturday, October 16, 2010
Well clearly blogging is NOT a strength. I just don't have that thing in me to write daily. Not sure why but, today I decided I'd give it a go.
It has been a week. It started okay but like a mack truck hit me, on Tuesday afternoon I got sick at work. Made it home (45 minute drive) and figured okay, it will pass, go to bed. Oh no! For the next 12 hours I was sick!! Up and down and couldn't keep anything in my stomach, not even water. I sipped on water and flat 7-up as I needed fluids but once I lost that in the middle of the night then I finally settled a bit and slept. 12 hours of misery before the 2nd 12 of recovery. I even stayed home from work. I NEVER not go to work but I knew I wouldn't make it so why push.
Fortunately, it was short lived. Returned the next day and felt a little 'hung over' from the bout but was bouncing back. Whew! My exercise has been minimal this week but I'll survive. My weight is down too - the hard way but, I have to admit something good came from this.
Prior to this I've been struggling with my sugar addiction. Yep, I've decided that is in fact what it is. I fight it tooth and nail but will cave on occasion but it has been miserable. So the good thing that came from this bout of illness, I feel like I'm in control again. I don't have the same urge for sweets. It is weird, very weird, but very exciting. So Tuesday was the day I was sick, it is now Saturday and other than fruit and a little dish of ice cream, I've had nothing sweet. No little candy bar or cookie or anything. I feel like I'm in control once again. Can it last? Will it last? I think as long as my mindset is focused and the longer I'm away from it, the less the desire will be, I think so. I will give it my best.
So tomorrow the plan is to get a good workout in. Cardio and ST before facing the rest of the day. Today I spent it with the grandbaby so all things are null and void. She gets my undivided attention. She'll be little for just a minute and I want to enjoy her at every opportunity.
Now to face a new week and remember the progress I've made and am making on this journey. Feels good!!
