Flip and Flop

That is what this journey is like...Bad Days.  Good Days. Bad Days. Good Days

Today is a BAD DAY.

I feel sick, like I have a sinus thing coming on.  I started hitting the Neti Pot first thing this morning.  As the day progressed, throat got sore, feeling achy...NOOOOOOOO!  This leads to being generally disagreeable and the feeling that I need to be taken care of, but there is no one to take care of me. 

Hubster is wallowing about not really working over the last few days.  Sat at home all day while I worked, well except for the portion of the day he spent at the farm and home store, looking at and dreaming about chickens.  I'm sure he watched a lot of TV, didn't consider doing the dishes, didn't do any laundry, didn't think about what was for dinner.  I picked up both of the kids, came home to the clammering about what are we gonna eat.

I love my hubs...I really do, and it's probably not fair that I am being hard on him right now, but part of being a team is picking up the slack when the other is down, right?!

 Autumn decided she wanted an orange, a bag of carrots (petite), a cheese stick, and about 5 Ritz crackers, but Erica wanted a beef hot dog, cheese stick, and crackers.  All I can smell now is that darn hot dog.  At 400 calories with the is sooo not worth it and the way I feel right is not going to cut it.  I will ultimately eat the RIGHT thing.  This is too important.  I do not know if I can muster the strength to exercise today, though.  I need to so badly, my body needs me to be active.  I was sooo lazy this weekend.  I took two rest days in a row (aside from my crunches). 

Thanks for the vent!  Keep me in your thoughts and prayers tonight...I really need it!


  1. Men...geez. Hopefully you will be feeling better soon. I love the Netipot !!

  2. Christie, the hardest part of exercise is starting. I play 'mind games' with myself all the time on this one. If I really, really don't feel like doing my workout I tell myself that I will cut myself some slack today and after half my time, if I really really still want to quit I can. Now I have to say there have been a few times I did stop after half, but the vast majority of the time once I was going, I thought what the heck, may as well finish it.... I think giving myself permission to stop, you know actually making the deal with myself, (crazy I know...) is what gets me over the hump. Good luck!

  3. That is frustrating, Ive been there. He should help you out at least 60/40 if not 50/50. Make him a list if he needs it!

  4. Hang in there are a great mom and wife! Men just don't get it sometimes...Be proud of all your progress and if you needed to take a break from the work out then so be it. It's not the end of the world. You will continue to make progress...Being a mom when the dad isn't on board for all the things that MUST be done is more common than you may imagine. That's why women are smarter, stronger and more appreciated!

  5. I really feel for you about the sinus thing. My hubby has sinus problems and it's just horrible. Pounding headaches...arggh. Hope you feel better soon.
