Home sick today. Stomach flu and cramps. Last week I went to work even though I had the flu pretty bad. I felt obligated because I knew it would be busy and I was needed. It was a tough week for me. My kids were all sick with varying degrees of the flu. As a mother, I wanted to be able to focus on them and take care of them better than I did this past week. I feel badly. They are great kids. My husband, who managed to not get sick this time, did just fine taking care of us. Somehow being sick put me in a funk.
I felt great Friday and Saturday. I went out with my girlfriend and had a fantastic time on Saturday night. Then I hit a wall on Sunday. I am glad today is the 1st of the month. I feel like I can get a fresh start. I am home. I am sick. But the wall is breaking down. I know what I need to get better and get motivated. I need to go shopping!
Seriously, I need to get groceries! Some fresh homemade food is definitely in order. All that comfort food from last week is weighing me down. I need the antioxidants. Berries, yogurt, and whole grains usually does the trick. A salad and some lean meat for dinner sounds good. Even the walking while shopping gets me going. I have been pretty lazy lately. Maybe I will even clean out the fridge and clean the kitchen. That should do it!
Now, if I can only get off this couch . . .
