a brain buster

Had a hard time sleeping last night. Had a headache that morphed into a brain buster by 4 am. I was sweating and hurling. Tried to get rid of the headache, but had to call and miss my morning walk with my buddy. I came into work to do a few things before I go back home to sleep. It takes alot out of you to be sick all night. Plus the head still hurts, but nothing like this morning.

I decided to walk on the treadclimber here at work. I told myself you just need to to do 30 minutes That's less then half the time I usually walk. So I got on and did the 30 minutes. Man, that thing kicked my ass. I was able to keep a steadier, faster pace. It felt like a better work out, but I missed the great conversations a have with my friend in the morning. Plus 30 mins seemed like forever! I was watching The Closer on the ipod and it died. BORING after that! I might have to switch to this though, cause it is really is hot, even at 5 am.

Thanks for all the great supportive feedback yesterday. I count on all of you for the LOVE. I haven't been so great at leaving comments, and some blogs (like Jo and the Stinkin Thinkin lady) won't allow me to leave a comment. I am reading though. I can't go without that.

Had my daughter's family over for swimming and turkey tacos last night. Lots of fun. I also had my hair cut and colored yesterday. I haven't done that in almost 6 months. I was due. Still haven't put on the 16's to wear, but I am feeling braver...lol.

Be a glass is half full kind of person today........keep the mood and the food real.

  6. Ouch! Nasty headache - glad you are on the mend and 30 mins on the treadclimber is amazing. If I did that, I would have more than a head that hurts, lol!

  10. Hope you are all better, and I think it is impressive that you worked out despite feeling yucky the last few days. Maybe Roxie is contagious...
