Monday night ramblings

Warning... crotch-talk ahead...

Oh people, what is a girl to do? I have an infection of sorts in my nether-regions, and the medicine the doc gave me cannot be taken with alcohol. Like, one little drink would make me seriously ill! Now, it's not like I can't go without, but we're going to my cousin's wedding out of town this weekend with NO CHILDREN. So, not only can I not get laid, but I also cannot imbibe. Really. W.T.F. I have the worst luck.

My hubby has tried to get me to see the silver lining in this. He says that 8 days of no drinking could be a nice jump-start to weight loss. Now that is something I sorely need! I've been maintaining fairly effortlessly since freaking May, so one would think that with just a shred of effort I should be able to get some poundage off. I have a mere 35lbs to get to my goal, which seems like almost nothing since I've already lost 70!

I've been a lazy-pants all week, mostly because I'm still trying to kick this cold. I'm pretty sure the other people at the gym would not take kindly to me hacking up a lung next to them on the treadmill. My muscles are feeling so tight -- I should at least make an effort to stretch this week.

So what is the plan? I don't know. I'm still liking the paleo/primal thing. I wouldn't say I'm anywhere close to 100% there, but my daily intake of processed food is way down and I'm eating more veggies and my protein sources are more varied. It's a start. Maybe I need to suck it up and go whole hog. No more fake sugar, no more real sugar, and maybe I'll even buy some coconut oil to cook with! Exercise, well, I think I need a come-to-Jesus there. I've been farting around for too long. I still want to do my Cross Fit on Wednesday nights, but I am thinking of incorporating the interval training from The Paleo Solution for the rest of the week. Time to dust off my kettlebell!

Anyway, if you don't see me around much this week, it's because I somehow have to work 30 hours in the next three days, pack for my kids to go to my inlaws, and pack for me and hubs to go to an out-of-state wedding. I'm tired just thinking about it!

You are more motivated than I have been lately! Not sure what the hell is with me but plehhh!
I hate having to pack for everyone. I feel like by age 44 my husband could figure this out or maybe pitch in with the kids packing. Anywhoozle good luck with it all! :)

Any time is a horrible time for that infection, but on a weekend away- I feel your pain.

Stephanie M. said...

Oooh, bad timing. But I agree that this might be a good kick in the butt to get the weight loss jump started! The universe was trying to tell you something. :-)

Jessica said...

I totally agree with Steph... Hope you feel better soon!

Dawnya said...

Get better sweetie. No sex and no alcohol is like a punishment straight for hell. But you will get through it.

Cece said...

Ohhh... that's too much going on (for me) ... I'm tired from just reading your post. Hope you're better soon !

You know what you must do! Take the meds and follow the directions! LOL the alternative sucks if you do not!

As for the exercise it is so hard when working 10+ hour days. I have been doing that since June. Mine will soon end on the 28th, so it will get easier.

You know my sweet, "the hardest lift, is lifting your ass off the couch!" I tell myself this all of the time!

Hope you have a marvelous time at the wedding!

I agree with your hubby, maybe you should exercise like a mad woman and in 8 days you could have a great loss.

Even though I would seriously make a deal with the devil to have tipsy fun at a weekend like you're having. Bummer.

Amanda said...

that wasn't nearly as much crotch talk as I was expecting!

I have about 30 lbs I'd like to lose by feb 28th. I agree this might be the head start to losing!

I'm fascinated with paleo, but I just can't get myself to do it. :(

I have been fighting a yeast infection for 2 weeks so I totally feel your pain - literally. I'm so sorry I missed you in Chicago. Looked like a great time.
