Getting Sick at the Worst Possible Time....

I can't remember the last time I was sick. It had to have been at least last year. Possibly even last summer or even spring. I credit working at a bank and handling dirty money to my awesome immune system. Or at least until now. 

Kidding... I just have a cold. ;)

With just 3 weeks before my big more, I have come down with an annoying cold! A little cough I can handle, even congestion and a stuffy/runny nose. But this cold has also come with loss of appetite (okay, I suppose this could be a good thing), but it's also made me super tired. Like wake-up-in-the-morning-feeling-like-I-have-the-worst-hangover tired. And get home from work with just enough energy to crawl into bed and sleep. I apologize for the total lack of posts last week.

Needless to say, aside from work, I have not been doing anything. Just when I was getting into a solid rhythm in my marathon training schedule, too! I haven't run in over a week and it doesn't help that my husband keeps telling me about all the pool parties/boating trips (i.e. bikini attire- ugh) we'll be taking once I get to Texas. I really can't wait to be rid of this cold so I can get back to running!

Packing has also fallen to the wayside. I may or may not have had a minor freak out this weekend when I realized how little time I have left. I did some cleaning in the kitchen and tackled a big chunk of the packing, but I still feel like there is so much to do.

I've been making lists and checking tasks off, so at least I *feel* like I have a good plan in place.

Have you ever gotten sick at an inconvenient time?


  1. I constantly get sick at bad times. You'd think working with kids I'd have developed a super immune system, but that hasn't seemed to happen.
    I have a cold right now too. You've been under a lot of stress with moving and everything that entails. It's your body telling you to calm down and take a break. Hope you feel better soon!

    1. Thanks, Jen. I think my body has definitely forced me to slow down and relax a bit. Any progress on your work decisions? I hope you feel better soon!

    1. Thanks, Sarah! I feel so lazy with not running. Haha. :)

  3. Oh no!! I hope you feel better soon - sending healthy vibes your way! Sounds like your hubby has some awesome fun planned for y'all when you get to Texas!

    1. I think he's bored and needs someone to hang out with. Lol. I've been really stressed about preparing for the move all by myself and he's been trying to sell it as preparation for an extended vacation. I'm excited either way! :)
