The Land of the Living

After going to the doctor on Tuesday night, and being officially diagnosed with a sinus infection and given a prescription, I am finally starting to feel a little better. He put me on Augmentin, which sounds a lot like augmentation to me, and if I end up with bigger breasts after this, then great! However, I'm not quite sure how that is supposed to help my sinus infection. But I digress...

Since I am feeling marginally better, I am got my butt out of the house this morning for a three mile walk. It was discouraging to feel the difference now that I haven't been working out, and to know that what would have been somewhat mild for me before had me breathing hard. I have really missed being able to workout, and have noticed that my self-esteem is tanking. I look at myself and all I see is a blob who hasn't done anything in weeks and is turning to mush. I've spent most days with no makeup and my hair in a ponytail, and in general I just feel hideous. It is really good to see the link between how I feel about myself and my working out, because it gives me extra incentive to get back into it. In the meantime, however, I am left struggling against this overall feeling of ugliness.

In other news, I have joined on with the 101 Days of Summer over at Biggest Diabetic Loser - if you haven't checked out Beth's blog do it now. Really, right now, go! I will wait...She's pretty cool, huh? So yeah, I have made a few goals for 101 days, which is perfect for trying to get back into the swing of things.

Alright, well, I have a list of three things I need to accomplish today, and times a wastin', so I will leave it at this and see you all later.


  1. I propose that we attack the ugliness with the one weapon it won't suspect. We shall kill it with kindness. I will pluck out my mole hairs, shave off my callouses, and give myself a manicure. Then, I will cook dinner in a gown and pearls.

    First I'll have to buy the gown and you'll have to get better. But we will conquer! Because ugliness is so easily bought out with something pretty.

  2. Hey! Glad you are finally on medication - last year I had bronchitis (sp?) for 3 weeks and when I started back to working out it was is I had never exercised - amazing how quickly your body goes to mush!

    Just take it one day at a time - we can do this. I tend to not wear make-up or jewelry to work, just low maintenance.

    Well guess what? I felt so good about myself from my eating and workouts - I did both! I walked into work and someone said "you look pretty today Biz!"

    Hope you have a great weekend!!
