I’ve been home sick for three days now. I felt a cold coming on several times in the months of November, December and again this month. Each time I would load up on vitamins, drink plenty of juice and I would make sure I got my rest. Monday night my throat started to feel sore and my nose was a little stuffy. I took NyQuil and went to sleep at 8pm. I woke up Tuesday morning and I felt worse. I worked Tuesday and Wednesday. But I had to stay home Thursday and Friday. And now today is Saturday and I’m still feeling awful. I’m trying my best to avoid a cough. My mom was sick two weeks ago and she still has a nasty cough. Oh, and my dad is sick now too. We’re all hoping my boyfriend won’t get it next. He’s been giving me kisses on the forehead to avoid any germs I may have.
Anyways, I figured while I’m home sick I might as well do some writing. Why is it that when I’m sick all I want is junk food? My body is craving to get back to the gym but my mind is craving french fries, Nutella and frozen yogurt. I’ve given into all those cravings except going to the gym, by the way. I was telling my boyfriend last night it seems like as soon as I eat one bad thing I just want more and more and more. It’s so much better when I’m on a clean eating streak. I can’t wait to get back to that!
My boyfriend and I signed up at 24 Hour Fitness Monday night (right before I felt my sore throat coming on). I haven’t been able to actually get there to work out but I’m really looking forward to it. They have Yoga classes Tuesday and Thursday nights and Sunday mornings. My best friend has really gotten into Yoga and she recommended it for me to help relieve stress. I don’t feel stressed but I guess I am…
I went to see my doctor last week to talk to her about my acne. I gave up dairy last year and it really helped with my cystic acne. I had clear skin for months and I was so happy that I had finally found my cure. But in November a new cyst appeared on my face. It was days before my brother’s wedding and it just went away the second week of January. It was very frustrating to me. My doctor said that it’s stress. She changed my birth control to one that is geared more towards acne and she prescribed me an antibiotic moisturizer to apply to my face twice a day. It’s only been six days but I do see small results. And I hope my stress levels will drop once I get back to the gym on a regular basis.
Here are some photos to kind of re-cap the last couple of weeks.
I got to see my best friend for the first time in two and a half years.
Top photo is from Christmas 2008. Bottom is Christmas 2013. I could not believe the difference in my face!
My handsome date at the Meinert wedding.
Our first selfie together!
My baby is ten years old now. He has brought so much joy to my life.
I found the photo on the left at my parents' house. Must have been 2006 or 2007. I've come a long way and I'm not done yet.
Happy Birthday to my momma!
