As you also know, I've been sick lately. I just finished up one round of antibiotics and had to start another two yesterday for a raging ear infection.
I don't know if it's the exhaustion from being busy, the fatigue from being über sick, the effects of the antibiotics, or what, but today was a breaking point.
I feel like poop.
I bucked up and went to school because it was a horribly busy day: field experience in the morning and three meetings in the afternoon. I headed home as soon as possible and crashed on my couch until about 7:30 when I peeled myself off for dinner.
That means that yes, I skipped my workout. (And yes, I skipped my weekly bowling league.)
I was so worried about missing boot camp, so I called my mom to help me rationalize. She told me it'd be stupid if I worked out in the condition that I'm in, so I took that to heart and slept through our challenge day. I also knew that since it's the challenge day, it'd be a harder workout than normal, and I really don't think I was strong enough this afternoon to complete it. So, it was probably for the best.
Today was also not a good day food-wise. It started out fine with a peanut butter and blueberry pancake. I missed my morning snack, though, and when the 12 pizzas arrived for my student meeting, I ate a piece of cheese pizza. And a pumpkin and chocolate chip cookie from a colleague.
When I got home, I ate a Blackberry Parfait Martini courtesy of the Abs Diet, followed by a graham cracker a couple of hours later.
While the only thing that sounded good to me this evening was Kraft Mac & Cheese, I peeled myself off the couch to join BFF for dinner at Star Bar, our favorite hangout. And while I really wanted pasta in sauce of creamy deliciousness - or a whole vat of Star Fries (tater tots) and honey mustard - I instead opted for blackened catfish tacos with a cabbage slaw and avocado salsa and a side of black beans.
Sadly, I went 230 calories over my daily allotment today.
Oh well. I'm sick.
Stay well, friends. This bug is not fun.
