Not like cough, cough, sniffle, sniffle, but like body ache, chills, headache, fever, cold sweats kind of sick.
I couldn't sleep for shizz last night. I was too hot, then too cold, my pillow was too hard, then too soft. The dog was all underfoot, the sheets were strangling me. I haven't slept well since the husband left, to be honest. So I think it's a combination of sickness and lack of sleep that left me feeling like I'd been run over my a bulldozer this morning.
I barely had energy to crawl into the kitchen to make coffee, then I just crawled back into bed and tried to fall back asleep to no avail.
So, I'm sick, tired, AND my back is killing me today.
I'm a royal mess.
I didn't have much of an appetite this morning. A warm bowl of oatmeal sounded like Heaven, but I knew it was off limits (damn this Paleo diet). So, I tried my hand at Coconut Pancakes. They were disgusting and dry, and I was too tired to try again, so I wound up with a plate of fruit, a (large) tablespoon of nut butter, a fried egg, and some crispy bacon.
That was my last egg, too. :( Poor me.
Speaking of fried eggs, they've kind of become my new favorite thing. The yolk acts like butter, making everything a smooth, creamy, rich, delicious mess. Like last night's blackened salmon.
The combination of lemony salmon and the creamy yolk just about sent me to Heaven!
I think when we're ill, it's our body telling us we just need to calm the frack down and maybe take a rest. I've been hitting the WOD's pretty hard for a while, I think this is my body's way of saying EFF YOU.
Swinging the 53# bell, and below, kipping pull ups that resulted in re-ripping my palm. Fabulous.
Some photos from yesterday's WOD.
|I got 75 of them unbroken. I really need a better rope!|
And I know you love those pants, so here's a close up.
I am friggen IN LOVE with them! Almost $60 a pop though, yikes. If they had them in other colors I would go snatch them up in a heart beat, after selling a kidney, but I can only find them in this scary green tie-dye pattern that I think only 5 year olds can get away with. Though I don't know, it keeps crossing my mind to snag them anyways, because they're just THAT damn comfortable.

I'm wearing this same belt thing at the moment, it's holding an ice-pack to my back, so that I can still move around. Sadly, when it's time to heat, I do have to sit down or lay on my heating pad. :( That sucker is attached to the wall.
I'll leave you with a photo from Monday I believe, hang power snatches at 60 pounds. I uploaded a video for some people to critique, and apparently I'm not opening my hips enough. For my first time ever attempting them, I didn't think it was too bad, honestly.
I'm sure I'll be up and about by tomorrow and back to my normal, perky self.
