Argh...still sick...okay, I know that it's still the same day, but I was starting to feel better this afternoon and then about two hours ago the throat got scratchy again. BAH.
So let me tell you how my day went. After I woke up and decided there was no way I was getting out of bed with this ickiness I forced myself back to sleep. I got in another 4 hours and was pretty excited. I know my body needs it. The first two hours that I was up were horrible. It really felt like there was a nail file going to town in my throat.
I stayed in bed and got out the laptop. I put a movie on and just played around online. I tweeted. I facebooked. I blogged. I went through my emails. And then I started playing games. BAH. There is nothing wrong with that normally. I, however, am a different case. This is why I don't like being sick. I don't feel well enough to pay attention to the book I'm reading. I probably shouldn't knit (don't want to transfer germs). I can't sleep all day or I'll never go to bed at night. And that leads me to computer games.
That is how I would pass hours and hours in my former life. Instead of working out I would play on my computer. And that's what I did today. I lost hours playing games. Bah. I don't want to fall back in to those old patterns. Once in a while is okay, but I seriously did this all day long. I am not happy with myself. The only time I moved today was to go to the kitchen or bathroom...and that was not a lot. I didn't even drink a lot of water today. Argh. Stupid sickness!
I am extremely hopeful that tonight I will get more sleep and should be good by tomorrow. I don't want to get sick again, but I also don't want to slack. Wednesday is Bible study at lunch and Choir practice at night so that's another day off. I have to do something tomorrow! I will probably go to the mall to walk and not take my chances with the fall evilness in the air causing my allergies.
So there you have it. I was antsy and cranky today because I don't like my lazy sick days anymore. I'm going to look at this as a positive thing. I am a different person now. However, I am not going to lie. If there was ice cream in the freezer today it would be gone by now. Some habits are hard to break.
I will say that a lot of my surfing today was marathon related and that is a positive thing. What I discovered, that I had missed previously, is that the finish line is right past the Starbucks in Rehoboth...I'm toast. Haha. I can just see me being the girl that runs in right before the finish line. haha.
There was a bright spot on tv...I think Harry Connick Jr and I have a connection. He was on Ellen again today. I was home the last time he was on too...YUM. That's another thing that has changed for me. I used to love daytime tv. I would tape hours and hours of soap operas and watch them every night instead of working out. Now the only show I want to watch is Ellen. She's just plain funny...and she's fun to watch dance. Everyone should dance a little every day :-)
There was some exciting news today, but I'm going to keep quiet for a little while to see what happens first. No, Tony Stewart did not call me...yet. It's something else that I've been wanting for a long time. Maybe I'll share later this week. Until then, have a good night and get some sleep. Your body will thank you.
