Sick sucks!

Happy Saturday to all. I hope you are able to enjoy your day. I, on the other hand, have been sick with some sort of stomach bug, general shitty feeling since Thursday night. I have been able to eat but I just have this incredible crappy all over feeling. So no work for me yesterday or today. I think I have not been able to shake my crappy feeling is that I am trying to push myself too hard, trying to accomplish too much all at once. I need a break!

I figure I would take this opportunity to share a few things I have been proud of this week. Some are NSVs and others are just small things I have been working towards for a while now.

Here I sit on a Saturday, curled up in bed surrounded by all the creature comforts. A brandy, dandy new netbook, a Nook Color, and a Blackberry. Yet, I am bored, bored to tears actually. I am restless and cranky and I want to get up and move. I did some dishes, which I am extremely proud of considering how I feel. I know my husband would not have cared if I left them there, he knows if I am not up by 6:30am there is something wrong. He actually let me sleep until 11:30... Aside from that, I logged into WW to log my breakfast/lunch and I realized something. I have 35 WPs and 11 APs left for the week!!!! Now mind you my week resets on Tuesday, this my friends is nothing short of miraculous!

I have been trying to pay down my debt for a while now. I can celebrate this week because I am starting to see some real progress from this month's credit report compared to last. I have been dilegently working on this for months, and I say it's about friggen time. But as many people who have ever had a bad or one sided relationship will know...sometimes following the heart can crush your credit.

I have an interview with an ambulance company next week...I'm nervous to be honest. (For those that don't know, I am a NYS Certified EMT) Right now, I am working at a job that I hate, that I despise actually, but it is helping me pay off those bills.

I have had bronchitis this month, but I pushed myself to get out and run on Thursday night. It was the toughest run I have had to date. I only ran about 1.66 miles, but my body started to hurt after the 1st 1/10th of a mile and my breathing was horrible. I did not give up and still managed to run at under a 10 minute mile pace.

I am waiting for the weather to get better so that I can get out and run more often. But until then I have to deal with whatever mother nature sends my way.

So with all that being said, I am going to wish everyone a great rest of your weekend while I lay here and enjoy a cup of delicious hot apple apple pie flavored might I add.


  1. I hope you feel better and rest up! The road will still be there and you have plenty of time to train for Buffalo.

  2. I'm sorry for the crappy feeling :( I hope you feel better(or already do since i;m quite late with the comment)
    My boyfriend is actually taking classes to become EMT :) he said he wants to be a superhero and thats pretty much the closest he can get to :)
