Weekends aren't Evil, But...

OK, If I'm going to be sick it generally never happens during the week. My body gets sluggish and the work days get more difficult, but never enough to call in and say, "I'm sick and won't be in today." then take the children to the sitters and suffer in peace. No, that rarely happens.

INSTEAD, I am sluggish all week and push to meet deadlines. My body awaits the magic of the weekend to shut down. Mark is on-course and I said I'd take the kids to his Mom's for the weekend. My mother was actually driving my brother home (he lives in the same town as mil) and was there for a visit when we got there. OK, we planned to meet there so I could get the convection oven and she could get her stain for the cottage that was at my house. Everyone got fed, then Mom left to go home. Within an hour I was in bed. Not in a good way. A headache hit that spread throughout my whole body. I hated to do it, but I left the kids with mil - but managed to tell them to turn the TV off and get ready for bed around 8:30. Amazingly, it worked. Could've gone the other way (i.e. they see your weakness and take advantage), but they were perfect angels all weekend. Guess I'll be in for it during the week.

I slept or was sluggish all day and finally came alive again last evening in time to pack the car and head for home.

Saturday I did great for food. I'd finished eating before the headache. Sunday...not so good.

Morning: Some kind of Blueberry iced danish thing - and too much of it as I kept taking slivers throughout the morning.
Lunch: Nothing substantial other than 1C Milk (a lame attempt at remembering Dairy GHG)
Supper: 1/3 of a very cheesy and saucy (frozen) seafood lasagna (I was starting to feel better), some brocolli (a lame attempt at remembering my F&Vs)
Late evening with hubby: 1/4 chicken parmesan thin crust pizza
Water: Maybe 4-5cups

I didn't meet any of my GHG's (maybe dairy) on Sunday and have no idea how many points I ate. I may try to calculate them later today. To make matters worse, my fridge is bare and I didn't eat breakfast this morning. I do have some bread, veggies, and 1/6 of that lasagna at work, so we'll get something in me and go out for lunch. Tonight is a definate trip to the grocery.

For exercise I've sucked - haven't done a thing since Thursday night. I'll blame it on whatever hit me and get moving again today. September - the season of back-to-school and catching every bug going. Woohoo.

I'm so sorry you were sick this weekend, but I'm glad to hear that you're on the mend.

I totally understand where you coming from, though. I never get sick enough to call in unless it's the weekend or a holiday. So Not Fair! :o)

I hope you have a wonderful Monday and continue to feel better!!

Being sick makes it so difficult to stay with it but I'm glad that you are feeling better. Just stinks that it hit over the weekend! Don't sweat the bad food choices - your super stellar week will make up for it and you'll be back to your old self in a flash - I mean you are Scarlett O Hara Barbie so we know that you never say die!!

I beg to differ... I think weekends ARE evil!
