So... how was everyone's Thanksgiving break?
Mine was all right, nothing spectacular. I was sick with a slight flu AND a cold one right after another.
The day before Thanksgiving I was feeling very lightheaded and throwing up. I was up around 1:30 a.m. that morning and couldn't go to sleep because my stomach was having pain. At first I thought that I probably just ate something bad the day before, but it turns out that I caught a bug. So, I was sick all day. I couldn't eat at all... I only wanted to drink. I think all I had that day was a bowl of cereal. 0.0 But I drank down everything in sight; water, cider, soda, orange juice, coffee. Probably because my mouth was so dry.
I was feeling better as the day went on, though. I started perking up a bit during the afternoon. I took some Ibrophen as my stomach settled and I wasn't puking anymore, which was good.
One bad thing that happened during the day was that I almost broke my mom's partner's blender. While we were at her house, I was trying to make a Weight Watchers recipe which was a smoothie-type thing (and I asked first), and I didn't do it right and almost busted the thing. I should have waited until I had help. Stupid me. >.< Mom wasn't pleased. She said that if the thing ended up to be busted then I had to pay for it by taking money from my bank account. Well, I have a Christmas shopping trip to New York City in a couple of weeks so that wouldn't have been so smooth would it? So, I started crying and being so upset with myself and all. Well, as it turns out, the thing was fine... all it needed was to be rinsed out and left to be dried off. Thank God... I was so relieved. I now don't touch anything in my mom's partner's house without asking her first, which I'm getting better at doing. I just need to stop acting so impulsive about everything and realize that there are things that people don't want you messing with, no matter how close you are to them. I guess we all do stupid things once in
Thanksgiving Day was fine. I didn't eat much of the dinner because a); my stomach was still sensitive from the day before, and b); I'm trying to be so good in Weight Watchers on my first week. I have been writing everything down in my WW journal... every little thing, and I haven't cheated. So, hopefully, when I go back to the meeting tomorrow night, I'll find that I have lost a pound or two. I know that people usually will lose a lot of weight on the first few weeks because of water weight. I know this because I've experienced it before. The first time I joined Weight Watchers in 2001 I started losing weight like crazy because it was just water weight. Then, like say almost a month or so later, I started slowly losing like a pound or so a week. I didn't last year when I rejoined because I didn't follow the rules, but now, this year, I am.
Anyway, after I recovered from the flu I started getting a cold, which wasn't fun, either. It's the dang weather. Ugh.
Ohh, went to the movies with my mom and her partner Saturday night. We saw Just Friends. It was so funny! I really liked it. I actually thought it wasn't going to be interesting because none of my favorite guys (Vince Vaughn, Will Smith, etc) were in it but I ended up liking it. It did have one of my favorite comic actresses, Anna Faris in it. She, as always, was great in it. She's such a nut, though. :P Heh, heh. And the lead actor, Ryan Renyolds is such a hottie! Man, I didn't even know who he was but when I first saw him I started melting. He's so handsome and his eyes are so pretty. I usually don't go for "pretty" boys much, but... lol.
