Hi friends! I hope you're all making awesome valentine's day plans and that you enjoy yourselves today! My boyfriend and I don't think v-day is all that important so we just tend to ignore it. And instead of getting flowers or chocolate today, I got the flu! :( I feel so awful - I'm achy, nauseous, have a headache, get hot and then cold, and my hands are shaking. I don't get sick very often, but when I do it really knocks me down. But I can't skip my classes today because I want to save my absences in case I leave early for Spring Break or something. So I get to sit through a 3-hour photo class and a Buddhism class in a sweltering room. Please just kill me now. : (
For some happier news, though, I have evidence that my holistic approach to a new, healthy life is working! This morning (at 6am, when I got so hot I had to get out of bed...) my scale said I weigh 206. When I started this blog, I weighed 212, and my highest ever weight is 216. So in total I've lost ten pounds, six of them this past week. I haven't even been exercising at all, except for walking around campus, and I overate the last three days of the week. I'm chalking part of the loss up to getting sick this week, but I know some of that loss was because of me being mindful and loving myself. : )
I'm going to go make some peppermint tea now in the hopes of settling my nausea. Have a healthy Monday!
