So, my first day at the gym was last Thursday. Kenton, my trainer, worked me so hard I almost puked. He said that's a good sign, but doesn't want me getting sick. (That tells you how out of shape I am!) He gave me a schedule to stick to (warm-up on the treadmill for 5 mins. to get the heart rate up, then do weight training which is super hard, then this week my cardio workout is on the treadmill, which again, the intervals he has me doing are pretty rough.) I felt great Thursday, was dripping with sweat and 100% motivated. I came back Friday on my own. My arms were pretty sore, but I worked through it and finished my workout. Even though I could barely put Josh into the car seat because my arms were so sore, I was ecstatic and couldn't wait to go back Monday (I took the weekend off to rest my very sore muscles.) I set-up the daycare for the kids at 10:30am and was counting the hours to head down there. Then... I got SICK! I've been sick all day today. You name it, I have it. Now you ask, is this a cruel joke? I think so! What a way to put a damper on my week. I'm nauseous, have a fever, been in the bathroom probably 30 times today (no joke!), runny nose, and my throat hurts. I have no energy and feel like death (probably look it too... hence, no pics.) Now, how did I get this lovely virus, or whatever it is? From my adorable son, Josh. He puked on Jake three times Saturday night, and then twice in the car. He was sick all day yesterday, and again today. Jake wasn't feeling too hot yesterday, but he seems to be the only lucky one here with it lasting just a mere couple hours. I hate being sick, but the worst part is seeing your child sick and not be able to do much about it. I plan on taking him to the dr if this doesn't clear in another day or two.
Kenton has me counting calories (something I have never really done in my life.) I'm supposed to eat a max of 1500/day. Just to tell you how sick I am, today I ate approximately 220 calories (and I feel like I ate 3200!) I'm really hoping and praying this is only a 24 hour thing so I can get back to work on Wednesday but I'm doubting that will happen. Let's just cross our fingers the other two kids don't get it!
If you think about it, please send healthy vibes our way (and don't plan on visiting for awhile!) We don't want to pass any of this lovely goodness on to you.
