Happy 2018, y'all! I feel like I have been a bit of a slacker again. Let's be honest though, I've been fighting some sort of illness for most of December. At first it was just itchy ears, which my doctor prescribed me some Prednisone. It seemed to help, but it didn't go away. I saw my allergy doc for my re-assessment and she determined I had a sinus infection. I took the Z-Pak that she prescribed. On Tuesday, I went back to work because my co-worker was off and everyone had been sick...and came home feeling horrible. I took my temp and realized I was running 102 degree temp. Hello Type A Influenza. I literally have spent the week in bed. It was not the way I wanted to bring in the last week of December. Well, I guess that catches me up to now. I go back to work tomorrow for the first time in a week. I am glad I went to the doctor so that I could make sure it was taken care of so I don't infect anyone else. On a positive note, I haven't been eating much because I have had no appetite.
My goals may be getting a slow start out of the gate, but as they say, slow and steady wins the race. My exercise goals for this week is 10 minutes. I know it doesn't sound like much, but when I get too hot, I start coughing profusely. So I will start small and hopefully this cough will pass soon. Eating will likely have to start small as well since I've not really been eating. I doubt I'll jump back into eating 3 meals and 2 snacks.
Goals that are not weight loss related, I want to have a better relationship with my Father above and with my family. I want to be better...I strive to be more Christ-like, but I want to be a better wife and mother and friend. I want to de-clutter my house and make it a haven for me and my family. This is definitely going to take some time, but even if I make a point to do 10 minutes at a time, it will come together. One step at a time, much like my weight loss journey. I'll try to check back in soon.
