Doc Visit #2

I finally had to give in and do something about this lingering sore throat. My friend came down with basically the exact same symptoms I was having when I first got sick so I thought it best to make sure I covered all my bases. Needless to say, he put me on a second round of antiboiotics :( He said if it still persists after another 10 days, I need to go back because obviously is more than just a virus or bacteria. Not good. But at least I know I'm not crazy because I actually had a slight fever when I went in and my tonsils were still swollen.

Weigh-In Wednesday:

So, it's time for weigh in over at the Sisterhood. Up one pound :( So, that is only 1.2 pound loss in 3 weeks. Obviously, given my total lack of effort, this is not surprising. I don't know why I can't seem to get myself in gear yet. Well, usually, I'm signed up for a marathon or something by this time in the year so I have no choice except to start training so that is what usually gets me moving. It is amazing how hard it is to motivate myself without that date-specific goal hanging out there. I'm actually debating doing the Chicago Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon this summer. I need to make up my mind quickly so I can begin training.

Other than that, I think I really need to sit down and outline some short-term and long-term goals so that I have more than just weekly weigh-ins to shoot for. That will be my project for tonight and tomorrow I'll try to have something set in stone!

On a completely separate topic, Jen over at Prior Fat Girl totally cracked me up this morning with her recap of yesterday's lunch-time step class episode. Hilarious! Check it out for a good mid-week laugh!


  1. maybe when you kick this illness you can get back in gear. :)

  2. I was sick too...totally know how you feel. Sometimes you just have to cut yourself some slack!! You'll get back at it once you're better! Feel better soon!

  3. I think setting some short and long term goals will help you get on track!

    I hope you feel better soon. Being sick can totally derail you....
