your health, that is. Lately I've been plagued with fatigue. What I thought was a flu has turned into fatigue and exhaustion so encompassing that I can barely work. I've also lost about 1/4 of my hair. My hair no longer fits into any of my clips, because there's not enough there to hold it in place.
I had a doctor's appointment today, & they have a few ideas of what it might be (leaning towards a thyroid issue), and I'm hoping to have the test results back in the next few days. Fingers crossed that it's a relatively easy & treatable issue.
Everything other than just staying upright & remaining employed/taking care of the kids has taken a complete back seat. We've eaten out, I've slept more than I can ever remember, and I've stopped working out altogether. Basically, I've become a slug in an attempt to save my energy for crucial tasks. I'm pretty sure the mental aspect of that is harder for me than the physical aspect. All of my hard won toning & running miles. . . I have a 10K this weekend, and unless the doctor has a miraculous solution, I can't imagine running it. In fact, the thought of putting my running shoes on & getting in the car to go to a race feels like a lot right now. And, I have my half marathon coming up in a few weeks.
In fun news, I ordered a new bikini for the summer! Part of my $300 clothing budget, and used a gift card to offset most of the cost. I needed the pick me up - fantasizing about a vacation in the sunshine. :-) For whatever reason, I can't figure out how to post the actual item, but here's the link: http://www.victoriassecret.com/swimwear/bikinis/twist-bandeau-top-forever-sexy?ProductID=76782&CatalogueType=OLS . The deep purple color looks good on me, since I'm so pale. :-) Shows off my glowing white skin!
Apologies for being absent over the past few weeks!
How do you cheer yourself up when you're in a funk?
