Happy Sunday TKW Family! So how was your week? What’s shakin’ in your world? Last week I was home for the entire week however Mother Nature decided to be an evil cow and make every single thing on this planet I’m allergic to show up in my house and yard. OMG I don’t think I’ve ever had allergies this bad in my life. See the thing is with me is I’m almost never sick. Like yeah I’m human and I get the sniffles or aches (plus I’m old…) but never truly sick. No with me I get injured that results in either surgery or a hospital stay. There is no middle ground for me. So much so I don’t even have a PCP doctor. Like I had one growing up but I haven’t seen him or a non-specialty doctor in decades.
Well after a week of feeling god awful, no voice (well Mr. Fantabulous enjoyed that I’m sure), ear aches, headaches and gunk in my head I finally broke down and found one. After meeting with him and finding out that I just have a severe sinus infection, on top of horrific allergies, I got some much needed meds. What’s awesome is this new doctor is young and totally cool. Like he took his time and just talked with me, we laughed and bs’d about everything under the sun… including food! I mean c’mon, if you meet me for more than 5 minutes, we’ll inevitably talk about food and or working out.
Speaking of working out, I’m stubborn. No really, I am. I know it’s hard to believe but I am. LOL Anyway after one day of antibiotics (btw doc.. you prescribed me HORSE PILLS! WTH dude? LOL), I woke up not quite better but at least I wasn’t sneezing or wheezing so I decided to hit the gym. Ever since my shoulder surgery I’ve really had to cut back to next to nothing on working out. Yeah that’s not good when you’re around food constantly. I would do what I can but I am that person that needs to bust her butt at the gym to make a difference. I wasn’t blessed with a high metabolism; hell I think mine is non-existent. And to top it all off the night before, as I was lying in bed on my side Mr. Fantabulous came into the bedroom and said “Honey, did you put on weight? Your belly looks puffier.” <poke the chub, poke the flubber, poke the jiggle> Seriously I, at that very moment, wished I had some type of X-Men powers that would shoot flames out of my eyes for how hard I glared at him. I said some very, VERY unladylike things (sorry Mom) that involved him kissing a certain part of my butt and that he could sleep outside.
As I laid there ticked off – at him, my shoulder, the stupid deer for running into us and my genetic makeup I decided I had two choices.
– I could either beat the crap out of Mr. Fantabulous in his sleep for being a jerkface for his comments and his POKING OF MY FLUBBER (LOL); or
– I hit the gym for an early morning spin class
Now again this all depended on how I felt. This thing honestly knocked me on my butt to where I was in bed for almost 3 days. Thankfully when I got up I felt somewhat better and hit the gym. Spin class was BRUTAL but I stuck with it however I think the additional 30 minutes of core afterwards was a no-no as I think I took on too much at once. As I was driving home Mr. Fantabulous calls me YELLING at me for not being at home because I’m sick. When I told him I was at the gym the man yelled again (well okay he doesn’t yell but more gives me that stern tone). I simply said “Honey I don’t know what happened. I went to roll over and all of a sudden there was this ripple effect that the flubber took over and ended up rolling me out of bed, into my gym close. The jiggle kept going on like a wave-effect and it rolled me all the way to the gym.” <deep sigh> “Just come home you PITA. You’re so damn stubborn woman.” Again, what’s with this whole me being stubborn thing. LOL
And with that, this girl is off to shake some more of her jiggle away (if only it was that easy, huh?!) and enjoy a gorgeous sunny day here in Pittsburgh.. while sneezing, sniffling and wheezing. Hmmm… maybe I am a tad stubborn after all. What’cha think? NAHHHHHHH!
