Day 17 – The Sickness Continues…

No real updates other than I made it through a half day at work.  I really hope this is over soon.  Still not picture worthy today, so instead I’ll post one of my favorite pictures ever.  The top half is Cliff and I right after we got married, the bottom half is the two of us on the same beach on our 2 year anniversary.

I can’t wait to go back and have the same pic taken after we’ve lost the weight.

Day 16 – Nyquil? Yes, please.

Nothing to really post today other than the cold has been horrible and the fact that I’m posting this right now kind of amazes me.  I spent the entire day in bed and am headed back that way now.

No picture of me today because it’s terrible.  I haven’t been this sick since 2009.  I’m going to sleep.

Good night all.


Day 15 – A Little Bump in the Road

Today was a really terrible day.  Not only did I somehow manage to gain FOUR pounds, but I’ve also caught a horrible cold.  I’ve spent most of the day in bed.  The rest was spent on the couch watching New Girl until Cliff got home.  

I’ve been overwhelmed with awful and depressing thoughts all day.  I just don’t understand how I could  have possibly gained weight this week.  I’ve worked out more days than not, I’ve maintained the correct caloric intake every single day (I didn’t even have a cheat meal this week).  I don’t know what could have happened.

I was ready to throw in the towel, but luckily Cliff has talked me down from the ledge yet again.  Hopefully I’ll have better luck next week.  I definitely need it.
