Sorry for being MIA lately, friends, but I am sick, AGAIN, and had a pretty terrible week. Working in an office building is the absolute worst. I hadn't been sick in years and now it seems I get sick about every 6 months. It started with a twinge in the back of my throat last Sunday and was full-blown plague by Monday afternoon. I skipped the gym all week and am focusing on listening to my body, which is telling me I need to rest. For some strange reason, I only crave toast when I'm sick. It started in college and I want buttered toast with jam and tea all the time. I gave in and had some as it was the only food that didn't make me want to vomit. The upside of being sick is that I lost 6 lbs. in 1 week. Eating about 1200 calories a day helps you lose weight quickly! I got down to 201 lbs. at one point, which is so incredibly close to a big goal that it’s not even funny! It won't stick as I resumed my regular eating on Friday. I also indulged in some cupcakes, a buffalo chicken wrap and curly fries, Gatorade, and orange juice over these last few days. This bout of sick is so much worse than the last time. I thought about braving the gym on Friday morning but I was exhausted by just taking a shower. I tested negative for flu, then it was believed I had strep but I now just have a ton of congestion with a terrible cough. I’m absolutely exhausted.
This past week was completely winning before this weekend rolled in. I decided to go home to Orlando because I really needed some mommy snuggles. I’m 28 years old and still want my mom when I’m sick. This also means we did a whole bunch o’ shopping! I’ve conquered another size and bought clothes with letters I’ve never seen on tags before (M, on one particular sweater!!!!). I got some SUPA cute clothes and am really excited to debut them this week! Being skinny is seriously SO much fun. Trying on clothes is no longer the worst experience of my life. This was ever so obvious as I was strutting around Macy’s in my TWO new coats yesterday. My coat game is coming back strong, y’all. I was sad to lose some of my most favorite pieces because they’re basically tents now but I’m finding new (and cuter!) things every day. Thank you to my stylist, momma dukes, for keeping me clothed! I promise I'll have some posts worth reading up this week. I just need some time to de-clutter my brain. Happy Monday, everyone!
