Becoming the best me I can be

Vacation is almost over

I am sorry I didn’t post all week. I have missed reading the comments, encouragements and other blogs.

I must admit this wasn’t the best vacation I’ve ever had but I made the most of it. Hubby and I had a stay-cation this week. We couldn’t really afford to go anywhere due to fiances but we both had off work and could spend the week together as a family with our Peanut. We did have a day trip to Little Buffalo State Park and went took Peanut to the petting zoo. Other than that, we stayed home.

I wanted to do more, including taking Peanut to an actual zoo but I came down with a terrible cold. It started last Saturday at the water park and I am still feeling the effects. I don’t get sick very often. I actually haven’t had a cold since Peanut has been born but when I do, I am sick longer than most people are. I had planned on taking a day or two off my workouts since I was on vacation. Although when I became sick, I have only worked out once this week. I have been going stir crazy. I could barely breathe sitting down not doing anything, let alone working out. I did try to do Day 55 (I didn’t post about doing Day 53 or 54) and I did finish it but barely. Doing the workout resulted in a painful migraine, even more persistent runny nose and I was wheezing. I felt ten times worse afterwards than I did beforehand. I know I shouldn’t have done the workout but I didn’t want to get too far behind.

After that disaster, I decided it would be best to wait until I could at least breathe out of my nose to start working out again. I am hoping I can start up with my workouts again tomorrow. I am really looking forward to getting back in the game and feeling the exhilaration after a good workout. I have eaten pretty well this week. I’ve mainly been eating oatmeal and soup due to my cold. I love homemade soup without needing a reason to eat it. It tastes better when I have a cold. I have had a few sweet treats this week as well but I made sure I didn’t overdo it.

I’ll be catching up on my posts this next week including posts about how I painted my nails for July 4th, our trip to Little Buffalo State Park and taking Peanut to the petting zoo (which she LOVED). I might be doing my weekly update tomorrow instead of Sunday but I haven’t decided. It won’t be too involved since I didn’t do my weekly update last week. I hope everyone had a wonderful week!
