A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
What a weekend. Being sick sucks. At the end of last week I was diagnosed with a bladder infection and pretty much have been out of commission the past handful of days. My weekend consisted of sleeping, napping, watching the world cup, and more sleeping. Luckily I wasn’t in too much pain, but I did have a fever and my body ached. So that wasn’t fun.
But I am finally feeling somewhat normal today and I’m so happy! I don’t know the last time I’ve been sick. Even Michael said he has never seen me sick and we’ve been dating for over 6 years. I feel like I have a pretty good immune system, but things were not in my favor this weekend. I’m happy it didn’t escalate to anything more like a kidney infection though, which the doctor mentioned might be a possibility.
It felt weird to put my life on pause and not do anything the past handful of days. I think this is probably the first weekend in a few years I haven’t worked, except maybe when on vacation. And even then I am still posting in Instagram. That being said, I did have to meal prep yesterday and thankfully Michael helped with that. Making food when you have zero appetite and your head is sensitive to light/movement is a struggle.
It felt good to give my mind a break on work things. Sometimes we need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. I’m pretty sure no one is going to notice or care if I only put out one recipe this week instead of two. It’s really just pressure I put on myself which is silly. Being happy and healthy is a lot more important than the next recipe to two!
