Tuesday evening, out of nowhere, I came down with a quick moving virus that kept me up most of the night with the whole body aching, upset stomach, low fever thing which every time triggers my dizzy, fainting self. While I am rarely dramatic, in those moments of dizziness that send me crawling to the bathroom and laying on the floor to prevent fainting/hurting myself makes me think I am about to die.
The feeling right before you faint, becoming completely incoherent, fuzzy and in a deep sweat especially while being sick is a near death experience which I am happy to have survived.
I felt better yesterday morning but better is a relative term here. It takes time to recover from these things which meant even though I was hungry, I couldn’t eat normal and even if I wanted to run (I didn’t want to but go with it) I wasn’t about to do so. I know my limits.
I feel myself this morning and I may attempt a light workout knowing very well that even with all of the Gatorade and water I was drinking yesterday, it’s not enough to hydrate me to run very much and my muscles will probably feel like jelly anyway.
In other random news…
I have yet to have a properly ripe, sweet and juicy peach this summer and that’s just not acceptable. I bought a few and they weren’t good so now I am afraid of buying more in fear of biting into a bland bleh peach again.
While on the topic of fruit, last week I admitted to you that I go to The Fresh Market for free fresh fruit samples. This week there were chocolate samples too.
So I have clothes in my closet that used to be my favorite pieces, like the kind you look forward to wearing when you feel like getting dolled up yet without warning, those same outfits have become my lounge around, who cares clothes. From one summer season to the next, how does that happen?
My bestest friend Heather is coming up from Florida next week and I am more than a little excited. We met at day camp when we were 9. I liked her outfit and told her so. The rest is history.
I still haven’t bought a spiralizer but I think about buying it every day. Why haven’t I bought it yet? I think because it means then I will have to get a zucchini and I want an organic zucchini which I can’t get at just any grocery store and I really don’t need to add another thing to the grocery list I leave at home.
I finally bought a pair of lululemon underwear. I am not sure why they gave them such an interesting name (Mula Bandhawear) nor do I know what took me so long to realize I needed sweat-wicking undergarments. I mean, everything else on me is sweat-wicking so shouldn’t the material closest to my body be sweat-wicking too?
There’s lots of new stuff at lululemon, in case you were wondering. I haven’t bought anything because I really don’t need anything right now. Of course I want it all but I am smarter than that – I only wear my running clothes for running which happens at the crack of dawn and then comes right off as soon as I get in the house. I don’t really care if I match or repeat the same clothing often because the only people who see me are the dog walkers and I don’t say hello to them anyway.
And with that attitude, I am off to the city this morning for a meeting. I fit in perfectly.
