Losing IT

What happens when you get sick, travel across the country and don't do ANY exercise for about 15 days...

1. You gain weight - surprised? Really, you do.
2. Your entire body aches but it shouldn't.
3. You get grumpy. Real grumpy.
4. You over-react to everything. (Not being able to open a jar of Peperoncini's almost caused a major meltdown.)
5. You snap at everyone.
6. Your favorite radio station turns Spanish. (I know this must somehow be my fault.)
7. You turn so vain you probably think this blog is about you.
8. Depression kicks in. Sticky and not so sweet depression.
9. You have no energy but know you need to do something about this.
10. Bed is your only solace, but you can't even manage to fit that in.

I'm about at the 15 day mark as well! I would say high five but it's more like a low five that shouldn't even take place.

Back in the gym tomorrow! You can do it and so can I!

(Nevermind the very fat smoothie I had with my lunch or the bucket-o-ranch I put on my salad)

Tomorrow's the day!

Get back in the saddle girlfriend! Wipe your slate clean and start again. Happens to everyone sometimes - just get back in there.

Jennifer Burgett said...

But. . . . you have very nice makeup!

Laura said...

Traveling is the WORST for working out - you have no set schedule (at least not the same one every day) and you can't find a good place for a workout!

Good luck getting back into it... I'm trying to do the same.

I'm sorry you're feeling so craptastic. At least it's warm in sunny SoCal! And you do have very nice makeup, so you're pretty.

Just a little Bikram, one tiny run - you can do it! And then you'll be right back at it.

jeff said...

are you talking about indie 103.1?

ugh. i was and still am pissed about that. i LOVED that station. the dj's and the variety that they played was such a welcome change. it's disgusting that clearchannel didn't recognize that their listeners were devoted and offer better bang for their advertising buck than any of the other pop stations, let alone spanish radio.

sorry about the rant. can you tell i'm still bitter?

you can stream it via the internet and itunes, but it's just not the same without it in the car, ya know?

r.i.p.

oh, and hope you bounce back quickly.

OH! there are a few of us doing an easy trail run tomorrow morning at 5am. i'll shoot you the details.

AnthonyP said...

Snap out of it !

Denise said...

Aw, we've all been there. Doesn't mean you can't turn it around and get right back to how things were.

J~Mom said...

Sounds like you need to hit bikram and then bed early. Hang in there!!!

Jess said...

Yikes! Feel better soon!

teacherwoman said...

I Hope you feel better soon! Get back out there, chica!

Marcy said...

(((BIG HUGS CHICA)))

Cappy?! Hmmm. {{sending postive energy}}

Hey, great blog! I'm in week three of training for my first half-marathon and I've been reading all the running blogs I can :-)

I always feel so gross if I don't fit any exercise in, I feel sluggish and depressed!! Sometimes, it helps to just do a few push-ups or jumping jacks when you get up in the morning! Hopefully you feel better soon :-)

Sarah said...

Throw your shoes at someone. It's amusing and catching on!

aron said...

get those running shoes on and get out there!!!! you can do it, you know you can :)

Xenia said...

Take care of yourself, POM. (((hugs)))

Susan said...

Exercise is needed! :)

carla said...

wont dare chime in with the exercise as I know thats not what *I* would wanna hear.

Id need to be reminded to get off the white horse.

the sugar pony :)

Brooke said...

I hear you on all of the above. Luckily you know all it takes is getting out there once and you'll feel some relief...that's the great part about exercise- instant gratification! Hang in there and try to get some rest, too!

Michelle said...

Plus your so funny, this post kinda made me giggle! Was it supposed to make me giggle? I don't know...perhaps i giggle too much???

Sorry you're in a funk.. hold it together a little longer, and I'm sure you'll emerge..

ShirleyPerly said...

Bummer about being sick! I know I can be such a grouch when I'm sick. Get well soon and a lot other things will probably fall in place as well.

Jennifer Burgett said...

Am I the only on that noticed "Cappy" . . . .?

Carolina John said...

Glad you had a good trip? welcome back? all that booty from the foreign guys sounds like fun? he seems nice? you really got a good tan?

These are the questions we should have answers to. *hugs* for being under the weather. there's something going around here too. But you'll feel better if you get back into that bikram studio for a couple of good sweat sessions. missed you!

Kate said...

Amazes me how my world also gets upset by the lack of exercise, let alone traveling. I've been back to running (after about a month off) for a couple weeks and feel so much better!

As Nike says "Just do it"

Mrs Furious said...

Okay here's a little story... maybe it'll help take your mind of things because it is so absurd...

One of my weird childhood memories that always sticks out is riding in the front seat of my mom's car. Carly Simon comes on the radio. My mom says to me "This song is about you."


Feel better.

AddictedToEndorphins said...

Hang tough, sunshine! You'll be back before you know it!:)
Big Hugs!

Judi said...

awww, hang in there jessica. it will get better!

Jess said...

I noticed the dangled "cappy" in there too! What are you doing to us POM?! You tease us with this info?

Alisa said...

You'll get back on the wagon! Once you do all the depression and grumpiness will go away. It is really hard to workout while traveling.

N.D. said...

Time to get back on the horse! This sucks now but when you are back taking a ride you'll be good to go!!

BOBBI McCORMICK said...

welcome back my dear:)

the gazelle said...

WAIT! Indie 103 went away? I loved that show (although I've never quite forgiven them for firing Dicky Barrett).

Well that is just terrible! I'd be upset, too! (I am upset!)

sara said...

take care of yourself ... get yourself dressed and go to yoga or go for a 10 minute run ... just getting started is the toughest part.

Chic Runner said...

Feel better soon! I've missed you. Hope you get back in your groove and if not, drinks soon!

Laurel said...

Oh no girl. Take care of yourself. If it makes you feel any better, I could write this EXACT post (except for the traveling and spanish radio station part).

Sagan said...

Aw. :(

At least you're back home!!
