The last few days have a been a little off for me. Monday, I went to work and school and by the time I left school we were in a blizzard. It was the most stressful drive I have ever had. Completely white out conditions, I about cried. I was so scared! So I got home with a really bad headache. I wish I could say that I ate a healthy snack, but I proceeded to just snack on whatever I wanted. I don’t remember the last time I did that. I lost count of my points after that.
Tuesday was back on track and everything went smoothly until I got off of work. I had a message from my husband that he was so sick he didn’t think he could drive home. So I drove 1 hr to go pick him up. He was throwing up and had diarrhea, along with pain in his stomach. I’ve never seen him so sick before. He had blood in his stool, so I called the Ask a Nurse to see what we should do and she said he should be seen that night. So we headed off to the ER. They gave him fluids, morphine, and did lots of tests. Everything turned out to be fine but he has a bad case of the stomach flu. I’m glad that we went though, just knowing that everything was ok. We didn’t get home and to bed until after 2 AM. There was no way I could be up at 4:30 AM and go to work and school. So I called in to work and explained everything. I got some sleep and then got up and went to school. My eating has been on track today. I actually haven’t eaten very much because my stomach doesn’t feel quite right either. But I never get the stomach flu, so I’m not worried about it.
So…all of that into consideration, I lost .6 lb this week. I wasn’t thrilled, but was happy to at least have seen a loss.
I weighed in at work yesterday for the challenge and that was depressing!! I weighed 10.2 lbs. more on that scale than I did at home on my scale the same morning! How is that possible? I know I was fully clothed, had drank 6 cups of water and eaten breakfast…but STILL! Let’s hope it was a false reading and I’ll have a huge loss next week! haha
So that’s what’s going on with me. Just trying to make it through the week!
