Still sick

My sons temperature this morning is 102.2 or 39 Celsius. Hopefully since it went up, he will continue to get better throughout the day. He really wants to go to school tomorrow! He told me this morning that he is screwed. Poor baby. He woke me up at the horrid hour of 7:10am on a Sunday for water. I told him to come get some but at that point I was awake. Oh well.

B cancelled on me for the show tonight. He said he had forgotten that he had told some girl that he would babysit her kids. Wth dude? I posted on Instagram looking for someone else to go with but no takers. I don’t want to go alone and I don’t want to take his roommate. I want to go though. He’s even doing a meet and greet before the show so I’ll get to meet him! I guess I will go alone. Going anywhere alone makes me nervous. I’m so desperate to not go alone, I even text my ex boyfriend. He hasn’t answered yet.

I went to the store yesterday and got a bunch of stuff to cook for the week. I get my recipes from AllRecipes and just make changes to make them more calorie friendly.

I am going to make:

Stuffed Peppers

Fried zucchini fritters

Cheese crackers

Pasta with peas and sausage

They all look yummy and easy to make.

I don’t follow any special diet. I just worry about calorie intake. I do try to eat more protein. Last night and this morning, I had this burger from HEB called the cheddar bacon burger. Each patty was 8 oz uncooked so I only ate half last night and the other half this morning. It has chunks of bacon and cheddar cheese in it. They said it was 310 calories for 4 oz!!! But pretty much pure protein so I can’t complain. Since I don’t eat much bread anyway, I didn’t have to worry about carbs at all. It was a good dinner that kept me full until bedtime.

Those exercise calories were from weight lifting. I did all muscle groups! I was even able to up my arm weights to 15 pounds so I’m excited! I do 30 pounds on the back and glute exercise machines and 50 pounds on the legs. I was only doing 10 pounds on the arm machines. You have no clue how exciting it is to go up 5 pounds!!! The only thing I can’t figure out is how I am supposed to go from 15 to 30 pounds when I get stronger. That’s what the machines do. I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.

I’ve gotten up to drinking 2.5 bottles of water each day. I know I need more but I wasn’t drinking any water before this so I’m proud of that. I still have a couple weeks to bring my water intake up more. Then I just need to make it a habit.

I will leave you for now. I may posts later with actual pictures of what I cook and the show tonight (plus let you know if I wasted a ticket or talked my ex into going). Have a good Sunday!

  1. I too find it difficult to go alone somewhere.
    But I think you should go anyhow. You will proud anyhow.

    When I lived alone, I took trips on my own. Each time something nice would happen or I’d meet someone. It was a very interesting time 🙂

      1. I made it for my husband as I don’t care for green peppers. He said it was like cutting up the stuffed green peppers and putting them in a bowl. He liked the texture of the green peppers better stuffed but said the soup was very good.

  2. He needs to stay in bed and hydrate with more than water with that fever so his electrolytes dont get imbalanced and not go back to school until 24 hours after fever free. Poor little thing needs to just rest!

  3. Reading your post out of order, so I know your home with your kiddio. However, in the future think about going out along you will meet interesting people see that going out alone is often harmless. Furthermore, and you could of perhaps gave your second ticket away or sold it at a discount to someone who was going to purchase one that would have been a wonderful act of kindness

  4. Doesn’t your son have the day off school anyways, for Presidents day? I hope he is feeling better. ♡ & a comedy show alone wouldn’t be bad at all! Come on… I went to NYC alone. I hope you went to see him. Wish I lived close to you so I could accompany you.
    Can’t wait to see all the food you cooked up– everything looks so yummy!
