Just a Girl In The World Sharing The Ups and Downs of a Messy Life

Day 6 of this brutal spring cold and I’m pretty much DONE. Thank you, next. Cheque please.

I am the WORST when it comes to being sick. I get a sniffle and I’m going to let you know that I am suffering, and right now I’m at the point where I’m just ready to be done. I miss being able to do things. Regular ordinary things, without gasping for breath. Everything hurts. A cruel reminder that “you’re old!”.  (smile)

Yep. I’m done. Nobody should have to deal with a miserable cold in the spring. The sun is shining. The air is warm. Everything is coming to life in my garden. I shouldn’t be stuck by the Kleenex box praying for a nostril to clear. I mean, seriously.

Nobody likes to get sick. Nobody likes feeling like crap. It changes up my whole routine. I miss working out. Which shocks me more than anything to say that but it’s true. I need that morning workout to get me through the day. It keeps me sane. It keeps me positive in a negative work day.  It helps me stay focused. It gives me this unwavering superhero style confidence in myself that I never knew I had. It’s amazing. And I miss it when it’s gone.  When I do a challenging workout program I feel 10 feet tall. Like I am super strong. Leap tall buildings and all that jazz. Except I would never do that because – well, fear of heights. I’d honestly be a terrible super hero.

I lost three pounds in the first three days because I didn’t want to eat, or anything I did would make me cough. So that’s a bonus.  But then when I did want to eat, I would want crap food. Can’t say I’ve had a craving for Fudgeo cookies. But I did. So I’m pretty sure that three pounds won’t stay gone for long.

I desperately need routine to stay on track and focused and keep that momentum going. Otherwise Fudgeos become a food group.

I’ve been working too hard on working on me to let it go after one stupid spring cold.

So to sum it up. I am a terrible sick person. Avoid me if you can if you hear me sniffle. I miss working out and need to avoid certain cookies.

Wish me luck in getting back into this program I just started and please, send some motivation my way.

What do you do to stay focused and encouraged and motivated when it comes to your health and fitness? Maybe we could do something together. You know, what I’m not blowing my nose and sneezing all over you.
