Sick is Not the Way to Start

Ok, last night I started feeling a little queasy. Uh oh, not good. A really bad stomach bug has been making the circuit recently. I not only hate to throw up, I REFUSE to throw up. I will do everything in my power to not get sick. So I was in bed and asleep by 8:15. I woke up in the wee hours with that "uh oh" feeling. So I just held still, very still. Anytime I moved I thought I was going to have to hit the bathroom running. Let's just say that I stayed in bed (with the exception of texting my boss that I wouldn't be making it to work) until 10:20 this morning. I absolutely did not want to eat or drink anything. I know that's bad and really needed something on my stomach, and tons of water. I forced down a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Note to self: Bad idea.

So, needless to say, today was a mandatory rest day. Totally throws off my workout schedule of course. But I'm trying to be realistic about it. Workout would equal throw up. Throw up is bad, so workout is bad (today anyway). There, done, rationalized (sort of).

I only managed to be awake for about 3 hours before falling back asleep. Dinner may not be happening at all. If it does, it'll be something like a protein shake just to get in some nutrients. So, with that said, I'm off to go back to bed. 

I hope everyone else is starting their week off on a better note!

  8. Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Just something about a stomach bug that seems so much worse than other illnesses I think. I've done nothing but sleep, sleep, and sleep some more.

    Vegan in the City thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you'll stick to my blog for some happier posts! ;-) By the way, your pancakes looks fab.

  11. Nutritious Foodie there is a bad bug that's been going around here too. Several people in the office and friends have had it. Guess I just wasn't able to avoid it.

    Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian Definitely getting the rest!

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
