It was 49 degrees today and I actually saw some SUN!! Tomorrow should be the same as well, so we are hoping to go out again in the morning! THEN, the snowstorm warning starts, and the temps go back down to single digits at night. Guess it was fun while it lasted!
Charlie and I did another 3 miles today, and he enjoyed thoroughly getting as muddy and wet as possible via puddles and soggy patches of ground!! We were on paved paths, but he seeks it out! Loves to get as gross as possible! I need to install a hose next to my doorway so I can hose him down before he comes in! Mud season is upon us! This is pretty much how he looked today, but this is from last year.
I am sore-ish and out of shape, but I am not going to let that stop me from enjoying the thaw! It feels great to have SUN on me and be out in the fresh air! Need to head to bed early tonight so I can get some more rays before work tomorrow!
DH has finally decided he is ready to get back to working out and is going to join the Y with me! We will sign him up Thursday night after work! I am so happy he is taking it upon himself to take improving his health seriously! HE brought it up! He has been eating the healthier options I have been getting him without complaint, including low-carb wraps and flatbreads! He still takes in a lot of sugar in things, but I am working on that slowly. Step 1, healthier/organics, Step2, wean the sugar!
Off to do some food prep. I managed to get ahold of a lot of my farm eggs I love, so this week is Egg salad and hard boiled eggs for breakfast. I need to make my mayo as well, and my dinner. Have my menus planned for the week now, so I feel prepared for the work week!

I am not 100% but close to it. The brain fog has lifted, The fatigue has lifted, most of the cramping has gone away, and just some lingering sinus issues and GI weirdness remain. I was active and did a 3 mile run/walk with Charlie, shopped, and am relaxing now before making something for dinner. DH thought he was being funny when he said "Let's go out!", but my death stare and the "SERIOUSLY???!! DID you just SAY that??!!" took care of it!
I also got my Birthday present from FIL (early)! Tickets to see Heart in concert next month!! I had said I wanted to go and he tucked the money into an envelope with coupons they share every week! I ordered the tickets today! I think it is a fitting present too, to see an older band when I am officially turning old! Plus, inspiration seeing them still able to perform when they have to be older than me since they have been around so long!
All in all, a good day. Now what the heck am I gonna make for dinner?! Poor planning on my part due to my sickness last week! I usually have a menu laid out for at least a week, if not more.

I am STILL not right almost a week later! Now I have TOM on top of it, and the worst cramps I have had in 2 years!! Complete with back spasms, GI issues and nausea! Fantastic! I wish I had gone down for something better than cheese fries...something I hadn't had in a couple years like a sub and some beer! Oh well, once again, I live and learn.
Inflammation is NO JOKE!! I went from sinus stuff to headaches to bodyaches to sweating and chills to joint pain to GI stuff, back to headaches, bad back ache and more sweating and chills, then the TOM started! I slept 14 hours a day all week! And felt like I could sleep more!
Managed to go to work today, and be somewhat productive. There were a few things I couldn't wrap my brain around or that made my headache worse, but I managed to do what I had to for today. One of my co workers I think was trying to make me feel bad for calling in sick this week. While I am sorry they had a tough week, I was not exactly having fun! I did not take the bait. I just said "Oh looks like we ALL had a bad week!" I was not about to let her guilt me for staying home with all the symptoms I ended up having and the level of pain and fatigue I had! Is it my own fault? Sure. But I had no way of knowing all this would happen, as it hasn't before from something like this.
Here is to waking up tomorrow feeling GREAT and having a great day! Power of positive thinking!!

I eat a bunch of crap I shouldn't have on Sunday, by Tuesday I am sick! I wonder why?? Could eating things I am known to be intolerant of and allergic to possibly have contributed?? DUH! Why can't I get it through my head that I JUST CAN'T eat like I used to EVER!?? I have all kinds of reasons why, and poor reasoning for it. Bottom line is if I want to be healthy I CANNOT cheat! Unless it is something made by me in my house!!
That is not to say that cheating on my Low Carb/Paleo/Primal diet ever really suits me. But if I HAD made the very same items at home, I would not have ended up here. Sick, and feeling stupid! Because I KNOW! In that moment that I decide to do these things, it is not reasoning that prevails it is WANT. I want to be normal and be able to cheat on my diet like everyone else. I want to be able to eat what I want, and just move on. But that is not reality. At some point that reality HAS to settle into my tough skull! It did with gluten, and cigarettes, WHY can't I surpass a plate of loaded fries??
That is my point to ponder, and how I am going to deal with it when it does happen, so the next time the craving hits I am prepared and don't wind up here again.

I was not so energetic today because I am paying the consequences of my actions yesterday! I am lazy and fog-headed and had GI problems, as I knew were coming! Maybe SOME day I will have the SICK AVERSION I SHOULD have to junk food!! It works for cigarettes, why not food???
I did a lot of household activity, brought in firewood, cleaned the fireplace, dishes, laundry, cleaned humidifiers and coffee maker, fluffed pillows, made breakfasts for the week, roasted pumpkin seeds...cleaned the bathroom top to bottom...it was a productive day. But yet I still have things undone! Oh well, I am NOT going to kill myself over some house chores!
Back to work Tues.! Great.
