Sore and Tired

Worked all day, went to the gym, came home, and collapsed on the floor. 

After not going to the gym for a month my body is angry with me for going hard two days in a row. I might have to take a day off tomorrow but I’m trying to do at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. 

I’m really worried about getting myself in shape for this 10K so I want to be in the gym at least 5 days a week. I have 6 weeks and I know there’s a lot I can accomplish in that amount of time, just have to keep moving! 

Happy Thursday! Friday is so close…..

Still Sick…

I’ve been struggling with this cold since before Thanksgiving and can’t seem to fully shake it.

I don’t ever remember being sick like this for so long.  I went back to the doctor last week and apparently have a sinus infection so I’m back on antibiotics.  Unfortunately they don’t help my constantly running nose and the recent development of excessively watery eyes.  I feel like a miserable snotty mess.

funny-memes-about-being-sick-17I really did have things I wanted to get done this weekend but the thought of going out into public with my constantly running nose and watery eyes is less than appealing. 

My eyes are so swollen….I’m so whiny!

I was kind of glad the office was closed yesterday because of the weather even if I don’t completely understand the closure.  I woke up yesterday morning to see about 1-1.5 inches of snow on the ground so I got ready for work, and while I was in the car getting ready to go I receive a text message that the office is closed.  I didn’t believe it but after confirming through multiple sources I decide to run to Walmart. If i’m going to be home all day and I’m already up, dressed, and in my car, might as well go to the store

I thought maybe I would run some more errands but began sneezing at the store and realized I needed to be home.

I did manage to hang up the wine glass holder that’s been sitting on top of my fridge for almost 3 months.  It was super challenging to hang up and it’s crooked but I don’t care.  It’s up and I love it!


I didn’t make it Costco yesterday, as was the plan on Monday, but did make the Mediterranean stew last night.  I served it with some couscous and it was delicious.  It was hearty but not too heavy and I’ll definitely be making it again. It’ll make for great leftovers for dinner tonight. 

I think I’m going to try a compress on my eyes because they are killing me right now. If anyone has any remedies they’ve used for sinus infection or allergy symptoms let me know ūüôā 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with meal plans and some new goals! 

Tired. Exhausted. Resting.

I’ve been busy.


Adulting is hard!  Work long hours, go to gym, run errands, get home, eat dinner, go to bed, sleep, wake up.  Repeat.

Good news is I’ve been eating decently and going to the gym.

Bad news is I hit a wall today.


I was so tired by end of the day I chose to skip the gym tonight. ¬†I didn’t have candy for dinner and I did resist the fast food temptations along the way but I did have some frozen pizza.

Now I feel guilty for skipping the gym so I’ll probably do some jogging in place to make up some steps but maybe not because I am really tired. ¬†I struggle to find the balance between pushing myself to do more and pushing myself to exhaustion.

I did an 8 mile hike on Sunday.  Worked Monday, plus went to the gym.  Worked on Tuesday then went to trivia.  Worked on Wednesday then went to the gym.  Today I decided I needed a night at home.

The nights I’m working and going to the gym I’m sometimes not getting home until almost 7 then by the time I make dinner it’s bed time. ¬†I needed some time to do some chores and relax. ¬†I’ll be back in the gym tomorrow…as long as the power is on. ¬†We’re expected to get hit with some serious storms over the next few days so I’m preparing myself for some time without power over the weekend.

If I do have power I plan to upload some pics from the hike this weekend but if that doesn’t happen I will have meal plans! ¬†I know I said that last week but this week I’ve already started the post so it’ll be ready on Monday.

I can see the wind starting to pick up so I’m off to batton down the hatches, which mostly just means making sure my phone is charged XD

Have a great Friday!!
