Hi all!! I hope you have had a great weekend!!!!
My weekend has basically consisted of recovery from what I originally thought was the flu, but turned out to be pneumonia 🙁 It also turns out that I am at the end of an Epstein Barr infection (Mono), which actually explains why I have been feeling so crappy for the last few months. I am finally feeling slightly better and hope to be back up and running by the end of the week!
This week I had to choose my resolution to the NYC Marathon. I actually didn’t think I would have this option since I deferred prior to the cancellation, but I guess anyone who registered was eligible. Although I wanted this year to be the year of the marathon, the fact is that I have not been running consistently for the past 6-months due to injury and illness. I had planned to start back up after the Commitment Run on January 1st, unfortunately I have been plagued with illness that is just now resolving.
I wavered back on forth between getting a refund or deferring. Originally I thought I would just get a refund, but I KNOW I want to run NYC eventually, so I decided to choose a deferment until 2014!!!!
Over the last week during this illness I have actually lost about 7 pounds without even trying, no surprise considering my normal hearty appetite was non-existent. Tomorrow actually starts the FitFluential DietBet, which means I have to lose 4% of my body weight over the next month to win!! I am super excited to start as that 5.3 pounds will bring me back into my “normal” weight range, which I haven’t seen since I started working full time.
Have you joined the FitFluential DieBet??!?!
If you haven’t you still have time!!! The pot is so close to $10,000, which is great motivation to win!!! Just know that everyone who loses their 4% splits the pot at the end of the DietBet! You can sign up here!!!!
I am looking forward to getting back on track this week, being sick just plain sucks!!!!!
How do you get back on track after a serious illness???
