Happy Halloween Loves!
My younger self – would totally loved this picture. Heck, I still love it! 🙂 I’m a sucker for kitties. (Well any animals really – except reptiles and insects!)
So this past week was interesting. Once I got my body back on track I came down with a cold. The kind of cold that leaves you feeling like a truck ran you over, then backed up, and ran you over again just to make sure you were down! I was chilled, fighting a low grade fever, sneezing non-stop, sore throat… the works. Sounds like everyone I work with is getting a version of this crap.
I was supposed to work Saturday and Sunday but Friday afternoon, I made the call to spend the weekend in bed. If I worked, I risked passing the cold on to others, AND I’d have been a mess come Monday for my full time job.
I’m that weird person that has a hard time calling in sick. Like, for my regular job, maybe once a year, if that, I’ll take a sick day. However, I’m in my own office so passing a cold on to others is a bit harder. In my part time job where I work directly with people, that could be a bad idea. After a TON of sleep, and a lots of fluids, I feel like it might be a bit better.
Last night I did yoga for the first time since Wednesday. In some forward folds, I literally felt the gunk in my head moving. That is creepy and a disgusting feeling that had me hacking briefly. None the less, it felt good to move. I did a slow paced 35 minute practice that was gentle, steady, and glorious. I even found my dreaded runners lunges easier.
So how did I do last week despite my body recovering and being sick in bed for 2 days? I lost… 3.4lbs. I’m hoping to chalk that up to my hormones getting back in check, as well as just not being hungry. I ate, and I even cooked, but just tried not to eat a lot at night. I’m also trying not to over-eat. That’s always been a struggle for me. Some foods are just sooooooooo good.
I hope you have a wonderful Halloween friends. I’m hoping this finds you well and ready to kick off November with a BANG! 😀
