An auspicious start to the New Year

So far, 2010 has been a bit surreal for the CilleyGirl.  I started off New Year's Day not feeling 100%, but I went out to dinner at my friend S's for good luck New Year's foods and that was a lot of fun; we ended up in a Wii tournament where I again proved that I SUCK at driving any sort of a vehicle in a video game.  I am so bad, I ended up doing better driving in reverse where I couldn't see the course.  Anyhow, S and I made plans to go shopping the next day, whereupon I promptly woke up with a full-blown migraine, my second in a month.  Our shopping trip turned in to "um, hi, can you drive me to urgent care?"  Where I got a big shot of drugs in the booty (and the injection site still hurts).  I still feel a bit, I don't know -- hungover? from the migraine, plus I am seriously thirsty.  All the time.  So, I'm thinking brain tumor combined with rapid onset diabetes.  You know, the usual.  Seriously though, stuff where I've decided I will try for a positive mind set first before going through the doctor rigamarole, on the off chance I really do have something wrong with me and it will prevent me from marathon training.

Little Suzy Cilley Sunshine, that's me!

In that regard, here are my goals for this week.  They may or may not give you an idea of how this week has gone for me.

Sunday:  Recover from migraine.

Monday:  Set alarm for 5:30 a.m. to go the gym to run 3 miles or an hour, whichever comes first.  Wake up at 5:30, promptly reset alarm for two hours later.  Two hours later, call boss to let him know I'm still feeling sick.  Be persuaded to come into work for "just a little bit, then if you still feel sick go home."  Work straight through lunch until 6:00 p.m.

Tuesday:  Set alarm for 5:30 a.m. to go the gym to lift weights.  Wake up at 5:30, think about going to the gym for about a half or hour or so, after which realize that I still haven't set up a weights program and that I'm not in a clear frame of mind to do so this morning.  Plus my ass still hurts from the needle jab.  Go back to sleep.

Wednesday:  Run 3 miles or an hour, whichever comes first.

Thursday:  Run 3 miles or an hour, whichever comes first.

Friday:  Take the day off from work.  Rest.  Get new mattress and box spring set up.  Perhaps go back to bed for a nap in new bed.  Go to brew crew.

Saturday:  Resolution Run 5K.  Don't die.

I'll let you know how the rest of the week goes!

  1. I hope that, other than your ass, you are completely recovered from your migraine!

    I'm glad you're going to make it to the brew review Friday, and I hope that you get some great workouts in this week!

  2. The ass still hurts but the head is doing much, much better -- thanks!
