I’m sooo not getting sick…

Back home and back on the grind.  I am REALLY run down right now between the travel and work and our move and everything else – but I’m desperately trying to keep myself on the straight and narrow.  I was struggling when I first got back because I didn’t have time to cook on Sunday so that lead to ordering dinner a few more days then I should.  And I had a lot of fried chicken at home.  Probably not as much as I think I did – but considering I can’t even remember the last time I had fried chicken before Saturday, it just feels like a LOT.  I also had a lot of dessert.  See this is the thing right – I should have made a plate, sat down, and eaten.  Instead I nibbled while I was helping my mom host – putting food out, taking coats, ect.  There was a lot going on and I fell into my usual “take care of everything but me” personality.  Which is ok.  Seriously.  It is.  Because I’m out of it now.  I didn’t let it turn into a 2 week thing like I usually do where I eat everything under the sun and cry about how fat I’m getting.  I had a few off days and just like that I’m back.  I got back on exercise immediately and I got back on eating hardcore today.

In general though, I just really needed the last few nights to myself, and I took them.  I read and slept early and fought off this stupid sinus infection to the best of my ability.  I didn’t blog, although I did do some videos for Femistry – which I should do a whole post about soon actually, but I did catch up on sleep and do some serious thinking about life.  Trying to figure out can I quit my job and just workout for 4-6 months, then come back to the real world…but I think that isn’t going to happen.  Not unless someone orders about 1000 copies of INSANITY from me right quick, lol.   But seriously – after having to deal with the memorial and the family (Seriously if ONE more person asks me when I’m having a kid again I’m going to start swinging.  What exactly is the answer to that question?  tomorrow?  On November 18th 2014?  What is it?) and the travel and the go-go schedule once I got home with helping my mom cook and clean and then cooking breakfast and all that….I just was totally wiped out.  I still wish I could have taken some time off this week, but I had work things that I had to be here for.  I make no promises for Friday though…I’m really considering taking a day off to woosah a little bit.

I also should say – I started trying the Les Mills Combat workouts.  Oh my freaking god.  Okay so remember how I was desperate to do this program in January?  Well my order got completely screwed up so I didn’t get it until last week.  Anyway, I wasn’t going to even try it until I finished my hybrid…but um I totally gave in and tried it yesterday because of my total lack of motivation and I get giddy with new stuff.  And I did it again today.  It’s soooo good.  Like I’m already a super fan and now wanting to jump into 2 months of it.  I love this stuff…new workouts just make me excited.  Some of them end up a bust and some of them are awesome.  I need to make a page with my reviews of all the DVD programs I have tried and rate them somehow.  I’ve tried about all of them.  Some girls collect purses – I collect workouts.

Anyway, just wanted to touch base and share what’s going on with me.  I am still feeling under the weather a bit, but I’m hoping my Shakeology + exercise + gallons of water + sleep will all fix me soon.
