What up?

Here’s where it all began going downhill. I got sick. Again. For the third time this year. And it only just turned April. It turns out that I got hit with a really REALLY bad flu bug/strep/death followed by a lovely bronchitis that has yet to completely leave me cough-less. Needless to say this last round of yuck left my body feeling just ravaged after having dealt with two back-to-back bouts of the stomach flu in January and February. The good news is that I think that I’m finally back on the mend, and I’m really hoping that illness doesn’t turn out to be a monthly occurrence in 2012. 

The other piece of good news is that between the stomach flu bugs and the normal flu, I have lost about 15 pounds. I think everything kind of reset my system because many of the incredibly unhealthy foods/drinks that I loved before are no longer compatible with my stomach it seems, so I’ve been avoiding them for the most part. The food I am still able to tolerate I’ve drastically reduced portion sizes. Honestly, those reduced portion sizes are probably what a single serving size was supposed to be anyway. I’m not totally ignorant about what the loss means either.  Since I’ve spent most of the last couple of months in bed when I wasn’t working or running errands I had to run, I’m sure some of those lost pounds were lost pounds of muscle and water as well as fat. This is obviously not optimal, so I’m doing my research on strength training to get my flabulousness back to fabulousness.

I have a few getaways planned for the next few months as well that I’m really looking forward to, considering the last time I thought about a vacation was the NKOTB cruise I went on last May. Not gonna lie, this is also an incentive for me to continue on with my weight loss and firm up plan. I’d really love to have some summer fun pictures of me that I don’t cringe at when I see them. The last time that happened I was probably 3. 

So yeah….that’s what’s been going on with me.
