Feeling like crap!

Ugh... this week has been yucky so far. Monday started off strong... stayed on track, got a great workout in after school, and had a great dinner. My little one was coughing and I could tell she felt terrible, so I asked her dad if she could stay home with him the next day so he could take her to the doctor. Monday night, out of nowhere, I start coughing. It's gone downhill from there. Tuesday I got sent home from work because I was coughing so bad and they were afraid I might be contagious. By Tuesday night, I had a fever and felt terrible. Yesterday morning started with cold chills and vomiting. All this time, I have been coughing like I have emphysema. My ribs feel like they are all broken. I feel better today and am back at work. During the night last night I woke up and was so wet I thought I'd peed on myself. Someone said my fever probably broke?

Good thing is that I've had no appetite. I've been getting my calories via protein shakes and orange juice. I weighed this morning and the scale said 274.2, which is the lowest number since May! I'm hoping that number sticks or gets lower, because I'm sure ready to get off this plateau I've been on. Since I still can't take a deep breath without going into a painful coughing fit, no gym for me today. Maybe not tomorrow either for good measure.

I got my grades for summer and got 3 A's and an A-. That makes all the blood, sweat and tears that school caused this summer all worth it. Fall term starts Saturday, but since it's spread out for almost 5 months instead of 1 - 2 months, it will be a lot easier to handle.

Ok... time to get my head in the game. Later!


  1. Congratulations on the grades! Those are excellent. What are you studying?

    Yeep about being so sick. Get well soon!

  2. Oh boy. I hate coughing like that. Rest & recoup sounds good.

    Bravo on the summer grades. Summer courses always make regular session work seem so easy!

  3. Wow - those grades are amazing. I sure hope that you just continue to feel better.

  4. Congrats on the great grades! That's awesome!
    Being sick is miserable. Look at the weight loss as the silver lining. At least something good is coming from it!

  5. Good grades girlfriend!

    Weight loss through illness. Tough, but effective?

    When my kids get sick I know we are all going to get it. I almost think we should get it over with and smooch on each other until we just do.

    Hope you feel better.

  6. Congrats on the grades. Now that's what I call getting your learn on!lol. I hope you get to feeling better soon. The bright loss, but probably not the way you wanted to lose.

  7. Feel better soon! When one of us gets sick, we all end up with it (whatever awful illness someone brings home). Those are awesome grades! You go!

  8. Great job on the grades! :) I actually miss school. i just don't know what i want to be when i grow up. i'm always a little jealous of others who are going. :)

    As for being sick and the weight loss... I think you can keep the loss... if you stay on track when you get healthier. Being sick DOES suck. Especially when you still have to take care of the kids. :) LOL

    Feel better. :)
