Happy New Year!

What? I know we’re already 4 days into 2014. But I really have a good excuse for not blogging sooner. I’ve been sick.

Something hit me like a brick. It started on Monday night (the 30th) and by New Years Eve I was a complete mess. We ordered pizza and watched a movie (I know, such party animals) but I just wasn’t feeling it. The highlight of the evening was when a friend of the hubby’s stopped over to pick up his laptop and I got to play with his son. Such a cutie (the cats were not amused). I spent the first day of 2014 on the couch sleeping off and on with the cats. Not the way I had planned on starting out the new year, but there wasn’t much I could do about it.

I dragged myself into work on Thursday because I had so much to get done. With being off the week before and it being the end of the month/year billing, I needed to make sure I got everything in on time. I was just so miserable. I know I’m sick when I don’t want coffee. I drank a lot of tea over the past few days.

I stayed home yesterday to try and get better. I’m happy to say that by around 4pm I started to feel like myself again and today I was finally about to get in my first workout of 2014. Again, not the way I had planned on starting off January, but I couldn’t do much about that.

I managed some cardio at home on the treadmill (I wasn’t going outside. It’s like 5 degrees right now) but tomorrow I plan on making it to the gym. I promised myself 2014 would be better and I want to include gym time in there.

So, like I said, Happy New Year!

What did you do for New Years Eve?

I’m not even sure how this happened

I’m sick. I really don’t know how this happened, but it did.

I managed to get my hour of cardio in this morning and some grocery shopping, but that’s about it. I walked Izzy when I got home and I’ve been pretty useless since.

On a happier not, I haven’t binged in over 6 weeks. My eating hasn’t the greatest, but at least I haven’t been stuffing myself with cake, cookies, ice cream and candy. I’ve even had bread in the freezer for a month and I haven’t inhaled the whole thing. I am so happy that I found Brain Over Binge.

Hopefully this is a cold and nothing else. I have so much that needs to be done around the house. I was so proud of myself for getting up early and hitting the gym and grocery shopping all before 11am on a Saturday morning.

Being sick is just not okay.
