I have the flu, a terrible, terrible, flu and have been feeling awful. Not only have I been feeling awful with a fever, chills and body aches.......the flu is making me think that perhaps I should postpone next weeks surgery. I feel really weak. I want to feel good and be strong physically before being gutted like a deer. Sorry if that is too graphic, but, that is what abdominal surgery always reminds me of. I am already freaked out about having surgery and now add my sick, weakened condition on top of that, I am having some major anxiety issues, can you tell?
I did have something amazing happen to me yesterday in the midst of my miserable condition. I had to drag myself out of the apartment to pick up Lily from preschool. As I was getting into my car, my neighbor from across the street slowed down her car and rolled down her window to compliment me on my weight loss. She told me that she owns a Curves franchise nearby and is so impressed with my weight loss she is giving me a year free membership! I couldn't believe it! Now I have no excuse not to go to the gym to exercise and as soon as I am feeling better I am going to take her up on her offer and start working out. http://www.curvesinformation.com/
