Doctor's orders....

I finally gave in and went to the doctor today.  Thankfully I don't have the flu - but I DO have a very nasty virus that has been going around.  The doctor seemed to think I was at the end of it and that I should be feeling more like myself in a few days.  He told me to go home and go to bed and to stay there for two days. HAHAHAHA  He is so funny!  I do plan on heading to bed early tonight though.  Tomorrow is a busy day, so I had better get some rest!

     I'm happy to announce that I have figured out the time discrepancy between my polar and the race!  I noticed that my race day showed two splits - one was five minutes!!!!  When I think back I remembered setting my foot pod to see if it was working.  I must have accidentally started the clock - and when it beeped that my foot pod wasn't registering movement I must have stopped it - that was about 5 minutes!  The time for the second split was about ten seconds slower than the race time.  I remember at the race thinking that I had to run all the way back to the start line - they didn't have a finish line.  They had the sound booth set up about ten seconds before the finish line.  So there you go!  I really DID run my 5k in 43 minutes!!!  I can't wait to see what my next race time is!

I'm still feeling kind of crummy.  I have a feeling this cold is going to turn into a sinus infection - I am really prone to them.  My teeth are starting to hurt and that is usually the sign of an impending sinus infection.  JOY.  Oh well - I can still run with a sinus infection - it's this terrible chest congestion that makes running a bad idea.  I think I am going to run tomorrow though.  I've already lost a week and it kind of pisses me off.  What can you do though - viruses abound!

On a REALLY great note... I had my weight watcher's weigh in today.  I didn't really want to go - but I have not missed a single weigh in for the past 10 weeks and I wasn't about to do it now.  I was ready to hear that I had gained 3 lbs but I DIDN'T!  I actually lost a little less than one pound - but it was enough to put me over the 25lb mark at weight watcher's!  I got my little 25lb charm!  That is so cool!  3 more pounds until I hit my 20% mark!  I can't wait to look the way I feel!  So what are some non scale changes that I have noticed so far?

1.  My  knees don't hurt anymore when I get out of the chair!
2.  When I woke up this morning my PJ pants had fallen off!  How does that even happen?  They have really gotten loose!
3.  My blood sugars have been AMAZING!  I have only had 2 or 3 blood sugars in the pre diabetes range in the past two months!  I'm hesitant to check off that goal on my 38 in 38 - but once my doctor agrees - then I will check it off!
4.  My son asked me how many points was in his fruit snacks.  LOL
5.  I bought my Easter shirt in a size 2x!!!  HOT DAMN!

Ok - now I'm off to my hot tea and then bed!  Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful night! -Monica
