Lost weekend

Source Not the bug I had, but just LOOK at those nasty spikes... Eek!

Yesterday was a total write-off, thanks to some evil bug that took up residence in my body for about 36 hours. I couldn't tolerate food, couldn't remain upright for more than a few minutes at a time and had a blanket over me when the rest of the family were walking around in shorts. Come to think of it, that last one is pretty normal...

I had plans to go to RPM, weed and tidy up the front garden, get more washing done and dry before the forecast rain hit, do a little housework and get food organised for during the week. Scratch all of that. Plan B was to lie on the couch all day watching the entire first season of True Blood and try to get as much liquid into me as possible.

This morning I woke up feeling much better, but still exhausted and wrung out. So I made a snap decision to stay home from work. At 7:15, I left a message for my boss to let him know I wouldn't be in and put myself back to bed till 9:30.

I won't be madly trying to catch up on all the stuff I didn't do yesterday though; I may take myself out for a walk later, and I'll finish off some client programs, but that's about it. If I feel extraordinarily better this afternoon, I might venture out to the gym for my weights session.

Funny thing; after eating pretty much nothing yesterday, I expected to see a scale drop this morning. Nuh-uh... 300g GAIN. What's that about? I've been through Sara's list of potential weight-increasing phenomena, and I see NOTHING that explains it.

*sigh* Whatever.
