LOL- yeah that blog post title- how "not" original.
This Sinus Infection is Kicking my Butt- my face is hurts, my sinus are more full than EVER- and I'm day 2 of Antibiotics and EAGER for relief!!!
Woke up - shizzy- 2 tylenol for severe sinus pain- not hungry- got the kid to school and then off to the gym
Fueling on Coffee (first time in months I skipped breakfast) I have zero appetite and not up to eating at all.
45min in the weight room-
Good: lots of sets of biceps/triceps
Bad: I lost some muscle strength. I'm back to warming up on 20lbs and curling 25's is not as easy as before. I was tricep pull downing around 110lbs consistently now 100lbs kicks my arms!
Extra Bad: I lost some core strength. the last 6 weeks I lost some strength in my ability to hold my planks as long- one minute was tapping my core (i'm on my period- maybe the pain was from that?) yeah- pale comparison to rocking out 2-3mins on each plank as before.
During my Weight Lifting routine I did a warm up mile- 8:45 time. I love working up a desire to run while I'm lifting- it's like a lifting "high" I get (and miss!!)
After my weights I went to the treadmill in the cardio room and busted out 4 miles at a set 8min pace! Drenched my shirt and gave it a solid effort- filled a few tissues with sinus junk and coughed a bit but I still managed through with energy and strong legs and a good breathing :)
Whole Wheat, Natural Ham slice (Hormel sells this deli meat "free" of nitrates! Still high on sodium- 520mg for 4 slices (10 g protein though!) and I just know that I have to ration my sodium when I eat processed meats like this! lowfat mayo, tomato slice- fresh spinach
tblsp natural pb
Coffee from D&D
Bed of Spinach Greens
tblsp of Natural Ranch
cup of Grapes
Veggie Burger (no bread)
Food positives: Stayed away from the temptations today! OK, OK, not hard- not much of an appetite being sick and all.
Food Negatives - not enough for what a I did today- but what can do you? forced myself to eat all day to be honest.
