Happy belated Thanksgiving! It has been very busy here for the last week or so. The holiday went well,did 30 min on the crosstrainer at work and ate well. Yesterday I got a 5k in at night on the treadmill and planning a 45 min -1 hr elliptical workout this afternoon. I still feel a bit off, but getting better. My thyroid is stabilizing and I am just borderline anemic I think the sleep deprivation from working night shift may be part of what is making me feel off. I am trying to make sure I am getting enough sleep on my nights off. Oh well. We got our tree up and decorated and the other decor is all out and set up. Now the kids are getting crazy and it is time to get them outside for a bit.

I had a decent week workout wise last week, good mix of running, biking and the recently repaired elliptical.  However, my hypothyroid is an issue again.  I have been feeling off and having minor symptoms that my levels are off again, I got my blood drawn on Thursday, hopefully get the results tomorrow.  It has been tough since this issue was discovered last spring.  I have to work out more and eat less points on WW maintenance just to keep my weight steady and then when my levels are off I have weight gains and then struggle to lose the pound or two afterwords.  I hope this eventually gets regulated and I can feel "right" again.  Oh well, enough complaining.  Got a good 30 minutes on the elliptical tonight, hoping for a good week!

not feeling very motivated today

It was a tough day...the kids were crazy- must be the time change, and I felt tired and run down all day.  I literally dragged myself out to get in a run this afternoon.  I figured it might make the day a little better and it did.  I felt glad I got it in and it chilled me out a bit.  I did 5.5 miles in 50:01 with a few red lights stops, not bad for me.  Now I am getting ready for a relaxing evening and early to bed.

feeling sick...

I have not been feeling great this week.  I have a sore throat, nasal congestion and a constant vague headache.  It didn't help that I had to work night shift on Monday and days on Wednesday, that threw me off a bit.  My youngest is sick too, nasty cold and an ear infection.  I have been sticking to the elliptical and recumbent bike.  Did 20 min on each Tuesday and 35 min on the elliptical last night.  I am hoping to run today if my head doesn't ache too bad.
