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!

On Vacation!

Just to let you guys know, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth. I am on vacation. Now that I think about it, I should have mentioned this last week but I’m forgetful like that. I am still eating healthy and doing alright with my workouts (took two days off. It is vacation, right?). I’ll be back to blogging soon and let you guys know what’s been up. I had a great fourth of July and hope everyone else did too. I’ll try to write some posts this week but I might not. Hope everyone has a great week!!!! 😀

PS. I realize I didn’t do my weekly update. Oops! I didn’t lose or gain any weight last week 🙂
