I can wrap up my weekend in only two words: SICK KID. My 6year old started running fever on Friday. She continues today. I spent all weekend giving her meds, inhlaers and trying to shove fluids down her as much as possible. I was essentially in bed with her the whole weekend as she was pretty dang sick. I thought she had the little cold or whatever her sister had last week that lasted 24hours, but here we are 3 days later and still she has a significant fever and a nasty cough. I'm going home at lunch to test for flu and strep although I think they will be negative.
I didn't do much of anything this weekend and I didn't sleep much either so I'm tired. I did ride my stationary bike on Saturday, but yesterday nothing because my little girl was worse yesterday. Being a doctor doesn't make having a sick kid any easier.
I didn't weigh in or get on line or send my weight to Allan for that matter so I suppose I'm out of the challenge. I honestly didn't even remember until this morning that I hadn't done it. I didn't lose weight and I am frustrated so maybe it's better this way. I'm wondering if 1200cal is too much for me. I work out a lot and I eat right and I'm not losing. I added up my calories for the week and the math adds up to a loss, but the scale didn't show it.
This week I'm going to be very very careful and if I do not lose weight again this week, I'll be decreasing calories to 1000. I'm also thinking I'll stay off the scale this week. That's really tough for me, but I'm just not getting anywhere right now. That only leads to frustration.
My hamstring is better, but still screwed up. I tried to run through the parking lot this am to avoid the cold wind and it just is not possible. Frustrated is the word right now. BUT, I am determined and those are 2 very different things.
So I'll stay focused. My 5 year old has a trip to the dentist today, the 6 year old is home from school still sick. I hate it when my kids are sick. Hate it. But, a little illness is nothing in light of others problems. I'll take it.
I am hopeful that this week will get better and that I can see that scale budge. There are things I can do better and I will continue to improve. I will not have time to workout today as I'll be making the trip home at lunch to check on my poor sick kiddo, but there are things more important sometimes. Who knows? She might perk up and be better. In which case, I'll hop on the treadmill or bike.
I didn't read much blog stuff this weekend so I'll be catching up today. Hope you all had good weekends and a good week is ahead!
