Well, here we are again. Sickness: 1, Gretchen: 0. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. Well, I do. My stomach is all wonky and (shield the eyes of the sensitive) I threw up this morning. Vom. Literally. Ew. But it’s so weird because just like yesterday, I felt fine when I went to bed, fine when I woke up, and it started like twenty minutes after that. :-/ Anyway, so today I’m taking it easy, trying to drink lots of water and eats lots of non-tummy-upsetting foods. I am feeling a little better now, but I don’t want to take any chances. I just hate that I am ALWAYS getting sick! Boo!

Anyway, I *was* all pumped to update you all today on the fact that I signed up for my second 5k yesterday! Scratch that, I’m still excited to tell you all! 🙂 I’ll be running the American Red Cross “Out for Blood” 5k in Columbia, MD! It takes place on March 26th, so any DC area locals, feel free to join me!

So I guess that my (re)training schedule isn’t going to start today like originally planned, but I’m looking forward to having a scheduled goal to work toward again. I think this was really key in keeping my exercise ramped up in working towards my first 5k, and it was after that was accomplished that my exercise rapidly decreased. So! Something to work towards, now! Once I’m back to a non-nauseated state, that is.

The breakfast that I’m currently nibbling on is a bowl of warm oats with honey, dried cranberries and a few dark chocolate chips on top (hey, I’m sick! I need comfort!):


And a slice of whole wheat toast with natural PB and some strawberry preserves:


I made it about halfway through the oatmeal and ate my toast, so hopefully I can keep it down and everything will be back on track tomorrow. Gotta get better and back to work, especially since I’ll be missing another day at the end of next week to go to Ottawa! I’m so excited to go back and visit all my friends in Canada I haven’t seen in multiple years. For those of you who don’t know, I spent my senior year of high school (and graduated) from a school in Canada, and my parents stayed there through my junior year of college. I haven’t been back since the summer of 2008, and I’ve been feeling very nostalgic lately. So I booked a flight for over Presidents Day weekend, and I’m totally jazzed! Needless to say, I need to get my health back in tip-top condition, because you just know that going to Canada in February is NOT going to help that immune system much, haha.
