Adios Mexico, Hello Deep Freeze

March 1, 2011

Sadly, my break is over.  I spent a wonderful week with my immediate family, extended family, and old friends celebrating the marriage of one of my favourite cousins (to a fantastic guy), which took place in Mexico.  Yes, I was able to escape the horrible weather here (in the -40 C range for pretty much the entire week, from what I hear) and thaw out on the beaches of the Mayan Riviera.

The wedding was beautiful, I read 4 books, slept like a fiend, hung out with my husband and kids, and dipped my toes into the ocean.  I also managed to snag a nasty case of food poisoning, which kept me confined to my hotel room the last day of my vacation and which seems to be lingering still – or else I’ve got a virus going on.  In any case, I haven’t been feeling great the past couple of days.  I made it to school yesterday but had a pounding headache and fell asleep when I put my daughter to bed around 8:45pm, feeling dizzy and extremely fatigued.  When I awoke this morning, my muscles were aching and my head was still pounding, so I stayed home, laid on the couch, and tried not to move.

I ran a couple of times on vacation and my IT band felt pretty good – although, holy man, I was huffing and puffing.  Oh well, I’m getting in the workouts I can and will be cranking up the workouts again once the school year is done.

Goals for the week:

  1. Plan something fun to do for later this month.  I realized today, after reading this post over at Low and Behold’s blog, that I don’t have anything to look forward to in March, and that needs to be remedied ASAP.
  2. 3 workouts (although this will depend on how I feel), strength + cardio combos.
  3. Book a massage.

That’s it for tonight!  I’m off to get (some more) rest.

      hahaha – yep, the cold is terrible right now. it’s currently -25 C, with a high of -21 C today, with wind chills in the -30 C range. so, it’s actually warmed up a little. LOL. oh well, spring will be here soon (fingers crossed).

    Definitely book the massage. Especially if the bout of food poisoning still has you feeling miserable – you deserve something lovely!
