Hallelujah, I’m back to normal…more or less haha  I’m just behind a little and playing catch up the last few days.  Here’s my Thankful Thursday highlights post for this week.

1.  I was scheduled to work on Friday the 13th so I went in, but was feeling the pain before I got there.  Within a couple hours I had lined up a sub to cover the rest of my shift and I was outta there by noon.  I went home and layed on the couch and fought a fever the rest of the day and nite.  It got up to 102.6 and I was not eating much, if at all.  It’s kind of a blur so I don’t remember everything about this stomach flu.

2.  Thank God I had the next day and half off so I rested up some, but had to call in sick Sunday afternoon.  The “d” word had overtaken me that day and a half!  So much fun!  NOT!!!  I rested up and didn’t eat much till I had to work 4 hours on Tuesday.  I made it ok, but had to move gently cos my stomach was still cramping tho not as harsh as before.  I worked my full 10 hours yesterday and have been on schedule since then.  My appetite even came back, but I still have some queasiness.

3.  The traveler traffic has picked a tiny bit now that it’s a little warmer, but I see that the parking lot construction will be starting soon and I’m afraid all the orange cones and fencing will probably deter a lot of people from stopping at the Rest Area/Welcome Center.  Oh well, someday when it’s all said and done, it will be beautiful and we will have a LOT of traffic. I’ll be so busy I’ll wish it were this slow again.  Nah!  I don’t think so!  haha


On the Fitness and Nutrition Front

4.  I finally attempted a workout today and did 20 minutes of Power Walking.  It wasn’t easy at first as I hadn’t worked out in 12 days.  But it felt good!

5.  I’m eating more than just apple pieces and crackers and am controlling my portions so this will be a good point to restart the nutrition part of my journey.  I made a comfort dish – stir fry spam and veggies…
