On the verge....and a quick blog award thank you.

On the verge of stomache flu.
My oldest had it yesterday and I feel queezy...so Of course I did what any sane person would do..
I got to the gym as quick as I could for the best workout I could squeeze in before the vomit fest begins.
I managed 30 minutes on the elliptical...a one mile walk and 70 situps...
Did not vomit!
I don't know about tomorrow, but If you think I am going to let a little something like vomiting sideline me..
You don't know me!
I will at least do some squats...or barring that...laying on the bed I can do chest presses.
That should keep illness at bay.
What fun is it to make someone sick if they refuse to quit?
not very.

it was a strange food day.
I had a lot of odds and ends to do today.
I forgot breakfast.
So I go to this half day parent thing at my youngest daughters homeschool enrichment course.
we go to all the classes to see what they are learning.
I had two options for eating.
A glazed donut or a chocolate frosted donut.
I could have waited for later when they broke out the frito lays and the pizza...but decided to do the least damaging of all possible options.
(Did you know if you are in an emergency situation, you can light a frito lay on fire and it will burn from 8-10 minutes because it has THAT.MUCH FAT?!)
I hate glazed donuts.
I ate one chocolate frosted donut.
It was truly heinous.
it was 250 calories of overly sweetened crap.
I scraped as much out of and off of the top of the donut as i could.
luckily it made me queezy enough that I didn't eat again till two when I had an egg white omelette with lean ham and mozzerella (1/3 cup) total 290 very filling calories for lunch.
(much better)
Then I had a cup of coffee 150 cal.
Then I had a chicken thigh....250 cal.
two vitamin chews 40 calories.
and I am about to eat dinner which will prbably be oatmeal for some reason.
I feel like oatmeal.
with milk in it and brown sugar and pecans 480 calories.
and maybe 10 carrots later as a snack.
total 1460 without the carrots...

with carrots...well,just looked that up..no carrots.ol.
I wanted to Thank Allan for his spawn award.
(Karen, I haven't had a chance to swing by yet to pick up yours, I remember and will be by tomorrow.)
He gave it to me for honesty..and anyone who knows me, knows this is just about the highest compliment you can pay me.
I want people to see me and view me as a very honest person who has integrity.
That they get what they see and they see what they get..they never have to guess who they are dealing with or what my values or principles are.
This was a very nice award.
So thank you Allan..
Well, off to do a ton of laundry and eat some oatmeal.
Have a great night guys.

I totally understand being on the verge of illness. I have been there for a couple of weeks and I am tired of it.

I hope you get through this unscathed.
