As soon as I started to feel better, hubby and son both got sick so the virus was still floating around. Had to send my man back to work for 2 weeks before he was well. :( At least he weathered the worst of it at home where he could just rest.
Anyway, the night he left (Tuesday) I had a low grade fever and since then I've have felt not bad or terrible - but never good.....today it is more stomach related. Grrrr...hard to begin to implement those lofty exercise goals I made about 3 weeks ago.
I am working on clearing out what was our bedroom and turning it into our spare bedroom - yesterday I worked for a couple hours - including ripping out some carpet. My reward was a feeling of accomplishment and a hip that hurt so bad I could barely walk for the rest of the day. (I've had problems with my hips since my 3rd pregnancy (1981)....getting worse with each one and finally not limited to pregnancies.....probably because I got to be heavier not pregnant than I had been when pregnant.) It has been awhile, though, that I've had so much problem.
I babysat grandson Seth (8 1/2 mo) last night while his mommy was at the recording studio getting her vocals on their demo tape. What fun we had! Even though he is still sick as well, he was a happy boy and Grandma got a great baby fix. But it hurt to stand up and hold him.
Anyway, as I said, In spite of having the cutest grandkids in the world, I feel blah today - probably doesn't help that I have been waking up multiple times during the nights since my sweetie left. That is very unusual for me - especially adding in problems getting back to sleep. What's with that, anyway?On a more positive note, I am down 3.4 pounds since Monday.... 8/10 of a pound less than when I first got sick. (You may recall that I gained an unexplained 6.8 pounds in the first few days of being sick) Also, I have been sticking to my eating plan, even though I have not been exercising. Still not doing so good on water, though. For some reason, water tastes disgusting to me when I have a cold.
A couple days ago, I went for a drive to try and capture some of the fall colors on my camera....here is one that I think turned out rather well. I do love the colors of fall, even though they are heralding the oncoming winter season.
