Moving on...

ROUGH WEEK... ended up super sick yesterday. I woke up with this headache, but had to work so I just went and hoped that I could work through it. It started getting worse and worse and then the stomach started turning. Then I was running to the bathroom. Every five minutes. The end of the day couldn't come soon enough. I picked up the kids from school, came home and popped some Excedrin Migraine and passed out for an hour on the couch. Woke up to a rolling stomach, throbbing head... and hungry kids. :) I tried to eat a bowl of cereal (yes I know... mother of the year!!!) but it made me feel even worse. I went to bed at 8:30 with my kids.

It must have been a 24 hour flu. Some other girls at work were complaining about the same thing today. Loverly. I do feel a little better. Still a bit QUEEZY but do able!

So enough is enough. It's almost a new week, new goals, one of which may or may not include birthday cake. (ugh). My kids both have birthdays next week... and my mom is coming to visit. Those two things usually consist of LOTS AND LOTS OF SUGAR... and costco muffins... and all things that I avoid all year! Wish me luck :) I'ma gonna need it!

Happy Friday!


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry you got sick! Sheesh, that sounds awful. Not to mention feeling horrible at work and at home when you still have to be the caregiver instead of being taken care OF. I sure hope you are feeling 100% better today.

    I love your outlook- new week, new goals, fresh start. Everyday is a brand new beginning!

    Also, I thought about something regarding temptations at your kiddo's birthday celebrations. What about making a batch of those yummy PB2 cookies to munch on...or getting a box of Vitatops/Vitamuffins at Costco and snacking on those with some yummy nut butter? I know that those are LIFESAVERS to me when I absolutely am at my wits end (think "TOM") and need a chocolate fix. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy some treats, knowing that it will balance out with your workouts and clean-eating the rest of the week:)

  2. oh! hate to hear you were so sick!!! totally agree with what texas gunslinger said....
    just hang in there girl!!! my sons b-day is next week,and i know the feeling!!!!!

    sending lots of good luck wishes your way!
