I Hate Being Sick Weigh-In

I’ve been sick a LOT lately.

I had a sinus infection about a month ago. I got another one last weekend. I’m almost well. Almost. Still snotty and congested, but I at least don’t have a raw throat from the drainage anymore.

I have to get back in to my regular weigh-ins. And even though the past two weeks have been full of “meh, I’ll eat whatever I want” and “I’m too sick to exercise,” I’m showing a gain. Yarg.

I’ll be honest – there was a part of me that was tempted to wait until Black Friday to weigh-in. HOWEVER, if I do that, then it’s just a short walk to “I’ll weigh in on January 1st!” And I’m not doing that.

So… even with the gain, I’m weighing in today. I’ll weigh in again on Wednesday as a pre-Thanksgiving “here’s where I am” weigh-in, and then I’ll weigh in again on Black Friday.

I’m not happy, but I’m not crushed. I saw it coming. If you eat poorly and don’t move, sick or not, then you gain weight. I should have ignored my sick cravings and continued to eat healthy, even if I wasn’t well enough to workout.

But I’m back on track today, I’m counting points, and I’ll post a loss on Wednesday for sure. Black Friday… we’ll see.

Honestly, Thanksgiving has never been a very scary holiday for me. Turkey, vegetables, and a tiny slice of pumpkin pie. Really, is that a big deal? That’ll fit in my daily calories with barely any effort at all.

What’s your Thanksgiving survival plan?
