I attempted to rally for my afternoon gym session by laying in bed with the dogs until it was time to leave. I felt "okay" leaving the house, so I assumed the gym would be "okay" as well. Wrong again! I had to alter my workout, because I was unable to lift the amount of wait I had planned for the afternoon. I ended up leaving after 45 dreadful minutes and putting myself to bed. I fell asleep around 8, and it was one of the worst nights of sickness I have had; second to maybe one stint with the flu last spring. Finally at 3 am, I headed into the spare bedroom so I wouldn't bother Mark, and because it is closer to the bathroom. I opened up my macbook and starting to watch mind numbing MTV reality: everyone's favorite medicine!
This morning I didn't feel much better, but my temp was down to 100.4, which I was happy with. I willed myself to shower because I had a coffee date with a good friend from a past district. We were meeting at a nearby Panera, and although I knew I wouldn't be able to eat that much, I made myself a tea before leaving to see how it sat. If the tea was a success, I would order it at Panera. I love ordering tea there ( wait I'm lying, I love EVERYTHING there!). They have many to choose from, all unique flavor combinations I wouldn't typically choose. Today I got a peach and ginger hot tea, and it was delicious!

I am hoping I feel better soon, because I am slated to meet with a potential venue for our "Ladies Night" grey matters benefit this evening, as well as for a 9 mile run Saturday morning. I will definitely have the reschedule the run if I can't eat today, because my energy level will be zippo.
Although the Bubonic Plague deemed yesterday uneventful, I did connect with a fellow blogger who runs and maintains the Healthy Living Blog circuit. We exchanged emails, and I think I may join! She also made some great suggestions for those just starting out like me, and informed me of a "Fit For You" blogging conference this summer. All very exciting things on the blogging horizon!
See you later,
