Being Sick Sucks

I'm operating on a large amount of Day Quil, yes day quil, because I can't take anymore sleeping. I started feeling sick last night but didn't think much of it, just that I may be exhausted from my slammer jammed weekend.

I woke up this morning, and when I say woke up, rolled over grabbed my phone and called in. I woke up at 4:00, 4:30, 5:00, and so on and could feel the aches all over. You know the fever ache, the cough ache, the "No No No I do not have time for this shit" ache.

Let me just clarify, this girl does not call into work. The words "I can't" , "I quit" or "I just want to sleep", don't taste right coming out of my mouth, but this morning, oye I woke up for all of three minutes to call in. The upside to being sick? I slept through breakfast, mid morning snack, and I only ate lunch because Mr. Noel came home and force feed me my shake at lunch. I'm thinking tonight will be a great time to try a giant vegetable soup. I definitely asked my Mommy to come over and help me do just that. She's the best.

Obviously, I can't go to R.I.P.P.E.D. tonight. I would go and make myself miserable, because I'm a hard headed fool, but the other ladies probably wouldn't appreciate my sharing of germs and getting them sick too.

Hopefully, tomorrow I will be fever-less and back to my boss lady business. I can't stay home another day. I already have cabin fever. Oh wait, I can always put in some more sleep. UGH.

All that said, I am sticking out the five day no carb challenge, I'm already more than half way through day 2, and I'm hopeful I can run tomorrow. Honestly, I'm feeling light years ahead of this morning, I did migrate to the sofa and turn on the computer so that's a big step. Right?!

I'm going to work on responding to all of your amazing comments, from yesterday's Christmas Pictures Running & a Size Two post. I am so overwhelmed by all of your sweet words and support. Thank you thank you!

My eyelids are starting to droop again, let me end this before I start snoring into my computer screen.
