Care for some cheese with that w(h)ine?


I came here prepared to author a post for "Peeves & Pleasures Thursday" but found that, despite the abundance of good things in my life, I could only come up with peeves. So allow me to indulge in self pity for a brief moment instead. (If you have your own real drama and suffering in your life, feel free to skip this post.)

  • I woke up with a headache again today, and it has continued into the afternoon, despite doses of Excedrin, a pumpkin spice latte, and a diet Coke. Granted, it's not a migraine (thank goodness), but this frickin' sinus congestion that I can't seem to shake, over a week later, has made me have a headache more days than not the past week. Ugh.
  • I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I don't know how people with allergies live with this congestion all the time! I am back to sleeping (mostly) through the night, but am still waking up tired. I sound funny, and I feel worse.
  • Despite my congestion and general feelings of ickiness, I continue to eat crap. I can't remember the last time a vegetable (other than tomato, potato or lettuce) passed my lips. Even last night at Red Lobster, when faced with numerous more healthful choices, I ordered a plate composed nearly entirely of deep-fried foods. I've eaten more cheese over the past week than I care to think about. WTF is wrong with me?
  • Because I feel like crap, I haven't been to the gym in two weeks. I haven't even walked the dogs in a week. (Don't worry about them; MM walks them almost every evening, even if I don't.) I have zero energy and zero motivation.
  • Thanks to missing a day of work on Monday (due to my cold) and sub-par concentration on the other three days this week, I am already behind on my billable hours for October, and it's only the 8th. Good times.
  • Did I mention I don't feel well? And isn't funny how when you don't feel well, nothing else seems to matter?
That is all. I hope when I next decide to post, I will be a little more upbeat. If I can somehow rid my body of this crud, I hope to finish my entry about our vacation--complete with photos!--sometime this weekend.

We all have those days (weeks, years) and they suck.

I haven't weighed myself in a couple of weeks, it will be scary. I don't know why we don't change what we know needs to be changed. Fear? But of what? I'm afraid of the loose skin that will left over. LOL!

I had to go to the doctor last week. I weighed in at 10 lbs heavier than at my check-up 8 weeks after Norah was born. Um, that is just WRONG. So, what did I do? Did I have a salad for lunch or work out? Nope, I sat on the couch feeling sorry for myself and ate 4 mini-Twix bars. I don't know what the answer is--I wish I did. Just know that you aren't alone!

By the way, I hope you feel better soon. It is so hard to pull yourself out of a rut when you feel like crap. Maybe the cooler weather will bring you some relief.

Yo! I tagged you.

I'm so sorry you are feeling like crap! I think that's a natural tendancy when you aren't feeling well - head for the comfort food. Broiled flounder with lemon just doesn't taste good when you have a cold.
