Sick. Sick. Sick.

Good morning! It's Wednesday again, which means it's weigh in day. Linking up with Heather and Erin for Weigh in Wednesday!

This week has been a total complete write off. To be honest, I had plans of starting a round of turbo fire but right around Wednesday of last week, Harper got the cold/flu mess that is going around here. 

Sick enough to not want her Cheerios and milk?!

I took her to the doctor and she got a steroid for her crazy man cough. She didn't sleep much all weekend ehich wasn't good for me. Sunday, I came down with the mess too.

Monday I was supposed to work an 8 hour day, but I had the full effect of the mess and could barely talk. I took harper back to the doctor because she wasn't getting any better and she was really wheezy while lying next to me that morning. Turns out her lungs were fine (children transmit sounds through their whole chest so you can literally hear almost anything, almost anywhere on their abdomen/chest. I didn't have my stethoscope, it gets left at work) but her ears were now red and raw. She now has antibiotics for those and seems to be on the mend. The cough is slowly improving, as is the runny nose. 

While we were at the hospital, the power to the whole island went out. It didn't come back on until 9:30 that night. We gathered our things and went to Casey's parents house for the night because we have oil heat and didn't know when the power would return. 

Many snuggles.

Now Casey has the cold mess and it's a lovely blizzard outside. Again. Casey's parents are on their way home either today or tomorrow (hallelujah!!) and I have to work the next 4 days and 1 night. I hope I can finish getting better! 

Like I said before, this week has been a write off. Haha. Much comfort food was had and zero workouts. I think I would die in a coughing fit if I attempted any type if cardio. My last workout was last Tuesday, when it was super nice outside and I went for a run! It felt great! 

So, while my lungs clear out, I'm just trying to not eat everything I see. 

That being said, I did lose 0.8 pounds this week. Somehow. 

Casey and I were talking when the power was out and we were playing crib (he won by 1 point....), he said, "I was going to ask if you were doing weigh in Wednesday this week, then I realized you weren't feeling good, so probably not, then I thought, this isn't the kind of sickness you lose weight with, it's the kind you lay around all day and eat Oreos." He was right though, I am shocked at any loss but I imagine it's muscle lost, unfortunately. 

So that's been our week in the Benson house. Hoping for a less snotty one this week!
