Alright - I took the advice of someone at work - an aerobics instructor... no less... and worked out last night even though my gut was telling me it was a bad idea.

I did my level 10 workout, but from the moment I climbed on the treadmill - my body rebelled. It was a struggle to get through it - and more than once I started to give myself permission to go finish the workout on the stationary bike.

I stuck with it though - but during the hard part - I had to back Jillian down a few notches. My left foot at that point felt like it was splitting in two... which I've felt before and it goes way when backing off the incline and speed a bit.

This morning however, I feel yucky... completely yucky! The nausea and general pain that I had on Sunday is back - the weepiness not so much... thank goodness.

I don't know what is going on, but ya'll - I had to fight to get us to the office today - and by us I mean both John and I since I'm driving the carpool while he continues to recover this week. I must have felt like nodding off a dozen times... and on the drive from his office to mine - I literally had to start slapping myself on the leg to keep myself awake. I did manage to get here safely - but it's been a LONG time since I had to struggle like that with my drive into the office.

I absolutely considered stopping at Starbucks, but I talked myself out of it - I was going to try a "healthier" drink, but I was so stuffed from my protein bar (which never tasted better!!) that I didn't really want to wash that feeling away at the time. So I trudged on... and gave myself permission to go back for lunch if I still feel the need for coffee then. It'll just replace my lunchtime meal if needed.

I didn't get any Bible reading done this morning because - well... I sort of dozed at my desk for the first hour I was here... nice, huh? I was completely in a daze and wouldn't have retained any information from reading my Bible passages anyway - so I'll just double up tomorrow. I'm already a week behind anyway. I keep aiming to catch up on the reading over the weekends, but it just hasn't happened yet.

My right foot is bothering me today a bit - which is weird because it was fine yesterday... oh who knows what is going on - I just know that I'm exhausted, feel like crud, and I'm shivering from working in an office that is trying to mirror what it feels like in the frozen tundra! Calgon... take me away!!!
