These past few weeks have been so odd. I went back to work and my new boss is working me to death. I am a hard worker and have no qualms with working hard, but for the love!! I would come home exhausted. Even eating was too much work...which is NOT the way I usually am. Stress usually is behind my binges. Not this time. I just didn't want to eat. I was trying to work out, but could barely muster enough energy to lift an arm. I started not feeling well, but I thought it was due to fatigue. Then, one morning I am washing my hair in the shower, and I feel two painful lumps on the back of my neck. What the hell? I was alarmed, but decided to wait and see if they went down throughout the day. They didn't. They got bigger and more painful. I went to the doctor, and through his exam and blood work, it was determined that I had Mono. Just what I need! I really needed this energy-draining, miserable illness when I am at my busiest at work and need motivation to continue living a healthy lifestyle. I fell off the wagon, but I did not land in a pile of Oreo cookies. Mmmmm...a pile of Oreo cookies..... Ok, snap out of it!
I am feeling so much better and have more energy today than I have had in weeks. I used that energy to finally clean the house I have been neglecting since I got sick. I am hoping to get a run in and to also get back into the positive direction I was going with my diet and exercise before I started to feel "off."
