|I've been home, sick, almost all week. I left work Monday with a dry throat that I thought would go away after my workout and dinner. But I woke up Tuesday morning feeling like I had swallowed a porcupine whole. I also had, what felt like a sinus headache and just didn't feel up to doing much. So I hung out on the couch and watched daytime television. I hate getting sick. It's particular annoying when you live alone. There's no one else to do the stuff that needs to be done. The dog still needs to go for her walk even when I have a fever, chills and feel like curling up and dying.
Speaking of the dog. On Sunday evening, I discovered that she had broke a tooth. Right at the gumline. One of the little teeth between her two canines. Not sure how she did it. She did have sores on her muzzle a couple of weeks ago that may have been due to doing a faceplant into something. Perhaps she cracked the tooth then and it came out some time in the last week. Anyway, she is at the vet's today for a dental treatment and extraction. I miss her :-( And now she will have a gap-toothed smile.
If you check the ticker at the bottom, I have finally got below 150lbs! The scale has actually read 148 on a few occasions, but I'm trying to only use one weight a week to gauge my progress. I have found that my actual weight goes up and down by as much as 6 pounds during the week, sometimes in one day (a really good reason not to weigh yourself too often if you get easily discouraged). I also haven't been to the gym since Monday due to my illness. No running and I missed my strength training class Wednesday. I'm getting kind of antsy. I was originally planning a 5k this weekend, but I don't think I'm up to it. Fortunately, I still have plenty of time to get ready for Colorado in June. Depending on how my running goes, I may sneak a race in on the first weekend of June. I have to see how I feel and check the local running calendar.
