Yes, I know it's Sunday, but it's my Monday, and I had my usual busy weekend. A little too busy. I didn't get to rest Saturday so I am tired today. I should have skipped the gym and slept in, but since when did I do the right thing? I feel hung over this morning, but I only had two glasses of wine yesterday (one glass of Merlot and one glass of plain old red table wine), so there must be something else going on.

I think I might just be tired from a long and busy weekend. I'll sleep in tomorrow, do the mail run on Tuesday, and miss one workout. I'm too tired and need to play catch up on my sleep.

Friday I got my stitches out from the oral surgery. I was going to walk around the lake, but it was threatening to rain so I went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for an hour instead. Brad came over in the evening.

Saturday I had church and then Brad, Lisa, Davina, and I went out to dinner. Then we walked around the neighborhood and I bought some sugar free chocolate. Bad idea. I ate too much and had the nice gastrointestinal distress going on. I put on a ThermaCare heat wrap and took a Vicodin so I could get to sleep.

We also stopped at a bookstore and I found a day-at-a-time calendar of sleeping kittens on sale. In the absence of a decent day-at-a-time diet calendar, I'll go with kittens.

Today I struggled through 45 minutes of weight training, 30 on the recumbent bike, and 20 minutes walking on the treadmill. I tried running 1 mile at 5 mph (12 minute mile) at the start of my exercise session, but I literally had no energy and had to give up! :(

Blood sugar Friday morning was 89, Saturday it was 92, and this morning it was a whopping 106! When will it go down? I hate all these stupid surgeries giving me high fasting blood sugar.

I have some pictures from the weekend to share. Click on any of them to enlarge them.

Good job on the exercising, especially if you're not feeling up to par.

There are a few bugs going around, so take care!

I'm not sick. I had had too busy of a weekend and need to catch up on some sleep.

I was afraid of getting sick after my oral surgery so I have been taking Airborne. I just had my last dose this morning.
