Sinus Infection + PMS + Hurricane Irene =
So that cold I was rocking for over 2 weeks turned into a full blown sinus infection. I finally had to wave the white flag on Friday and go to the doctor's. A bottle of antibiotics and a box of Claritin D later and I'm on my way to getting better. I have had sinus infections before, but this one really wins the prize for most excruciating headache I've ever felt in my life. Today is the first day where I didn't feel like banging my head against a wall in an attempt to make it feel better. That's a good sign!
I tried to tackle Couch to 5K week 6 day 1 on Saturday. Yeah, during the beginning signs of Hurricane Irene. Good idea, right? Totally wrong. I fought my way through it and was out there for a good 40 minutes, but only about 15 of that was running. I haven't tried again since then and I probably won't get around to it until Thursday. Later that day since not only was I dealing with the infection but the major onset of PMS symptoms, the only cure I could think of involved lots of chocolate. A box of Betty Crocker GF Brownies, a pint of Almond Dream Chocolate Ice Cream, and some GF/DF Chocolate sauce and I was well on my way to feeling better. It was so delicious. I brought the rest of the brownies to a friend's house the next day where B and I hunkered down during the storm. Thankfully they didn't lose power!
I can't believe this upcoming weekend is Labor Day! I'm very excited because I'm off to a bachelorette party on Friday and then the wedding on Sunday. It's going to be great!!
