Hey everyone! Sorry I have been MIA lately. In my last post I mentioned that B was feeling a little under the weather.. Well, the next day.. T did the same thing then it hit me.. It was 2 against one. There is no escaping it. It’s a crazy sickness though which includes fever, bloating, nausea.
Okay, neither of the babes ever had a fever but I sure did and now Brent does to. Being sick really does blow.
I slept for 16 hours yesterday big thank you to my step-mom and little bro for coming over to take care of T & B. Today I’m feeling a little better, no fever but still achy and bloaty. So not much eating around these parts lately..nothing but smoothies
and coconut water…
This morning, I wasn’t feeling 100% but not “can’t go to work” sick. So, I went and taught pump and ran 3 miles with high hopes to shake it off. Sometimes it helps to “sweat it out.” But I could tell right away that this sickness had the best of me. I felt weaker during pump and had to stop and walk several times on the run because my belly just wasn’t cooperating. I came home showered did what any girl does when you don’t feel good.
I made cookies..
the first “solid” food in 24 hrs.
and they were good.
