Can't Catch a Break!

So, I finished up my round of antibiotics on Monday night.

Only to start another one last night.

Yep, that's right.

I'm still sick.

Now it is with a bladder infection; which, I must say, is much more horrific and painful than anything I have experienced in a long time.

Please let this thing go away very very soon.

Until then, you will find me in the bathroom, as it has become my new home since I now have to pee every 30 seconds.

Well, Finally!

Those of you following along for the long term will remember the post months ago about my weight loss efforts. I haven't given up, but it's been slow going!

I'm happy to report that I FINALLY crossed over to that 10 pounds lost mark.

GO me!

I'm not sure how much of the credit I can really take since it is mostly a result of being so sick. I haven't actually eaten anything other than soup and crackers for about 3 weeks, but I'll take it anyway it comes.

And to make life even sweeter, I'm feeling much better. Only 2 more days of antibiotics left, and I can breath again. Almost. At least one side of my nose is functional. And it no longer sounds like I am days away from coughing up a lung.

Things. They are a lookin' up!

Still Sick!

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!

But, this cold seems to have taken hold and I just can shake it. Just when I thought I was getting better, it seems to be getting worse again.

So for now, I'm just taking it easy and trying to recover. I've put everything else on the back burner, and I'm going to wait until I'm feeling better to make any decisions about when I'm going to start training again, and what race I'm going to do.

Until then, my cross training will consist of stopping my running nose, coughing up a storm, taking my medication, and changing the TV channel.
