Back to the Real World

4 Jan

Aaaahhhhh, my first day back at work since going on vacation mid-day December 22 2010 – can I go back to vacation please? lol. πŸ˜€

I didn’t go in to vacation thinking “I am going to eat whatever I want screw the points!” but that is how it started, shrug. I couldn’t even bring myself to regret the food I was eating – it was that gooooood! πŸ˜› I went out for lunch on my birthday AND had a big bday dinner with the family – oh yum! I also hit up a Red Lobster, Joey’s and Cheesecake Cafe – not to mention Christmas dinner!

Well, there I was on an unplanned eating binge when I got sick, I thought it was just a cold with a nasty cough so for a while I kept up with my plans but by last thursday the cough was so bad and I had a bunch of other symptoms that were uber nasty and I spent two days in bed. ugh. What a suck fest! I mean, it’s bad enough being sick and I am grateful I didn’t miss work because of being sick but to miss out on vacation stuff because of sickness?! Not Cool! Naughty immune system! *tsk tsk*

Can I say though, ifΒ a person has to be sick they should definitely be sick while visiting the parents cause man, my mom treated me sooooo good! πŸ˜€ She made me tea and hot lemonade, brought me food, checked up on me to see how I was doing, got me a hot water bottle…all kinds of things! If I’d been here I would have eaten nothing and drank nothing and been oh so miserable, my mom is such a rock star. πŸ˜€

Eventually I got it together enough to go out and have some fun again, yah!, but since Thursday I have had almost no appetite…which ok sure, not good cause it’s only happening cause I am sick but yah! cause the weight I am sure I gained from all the food I ate at the beginning of the trip started to slip away, phew! lol.

Now, I don’t actually know what I weigh right now, if I gained or lost, cause I didn’t weigh myself at my parents (the scale there doesn’t match my scale so it freaks me out when I use it heh) but I am hoping I lost…or at least stayed the same! The whole getting sick thing may end up having a happy side effect. πŸ˜› Won’t know for sure till saturday tho…why is saturday so far away? sigh.

Oh, and little sidenote, the cold is actually Bronchitis, nice huh? I went to a doctor this morning before I went to work and that is what he said, oops! Guess I should’ve listened to my mom when she said “go to the doctor” lol.
