Day 49 & Day 50 Checkins

So here we are...only 10 days left in the challenge and I am...STILL...SICK.  I'm so over being sick.  Sick and tired of being sick and tired.  Seriously.  I want to go out and run a few miles so bad I am flat grumpy about it.  It's been almost a week sick now so I'm heading to the dr tomorrow as I tend to get ear infections and bronchitis pretty easily.  In the meantime, I'm just chilling and trying not to show my grumpiness to others (though I'm pretty sure it shows, right lunch buddies?).  lol.  Another shout out to my favorite blog stalker...quite possibly the only person reading this blog. HA!  Well, besides me.  And my friends with Input. :)

I'm trying to figure out how to adjust my game plan according to this bump in the road.  Do I cave and give in and just gain 5 pounds since its Christmas?  Or do I tailor my intake to my output?  That would make way more sense.

So the last few days I've definitely gone in the other direction - not in a major way, but in a 100 calories over my range each day kind of way.  An extra 300 calories would normally mean nothing but since the most calories I'm burning right now are by sneezing, I'm guessing it might mean something at weigh in this Friday. 

So my new plan of attack is as follows: eat in the lower end of my calorie range every day this week until I am feeling well enough to at least take a walk outside for a few miles.  And I'm really hoping to feel well enough to run a few miles on Christmas.  Hopefully that will get me back on track for losing this week.  I really don't want to lose any ground on this 60 day challenge due to a stinking head cold.

Here are my not so awesome stats:


INPUT (food facts):
Calories: 1551
Carbs: 111
Fat: 84
Protein: 94

OUTPUT (exercise):
Church, then more resting. :)

I had to take two weeks off for one of the worst colds of my life! It was a full two weeks and I had to ease back into it this week. Give yourself time to rest even though you don't want to - otherwise you'll just end up more sick!!
