I've been sidelined!

So to speak! Just thought with my earlier football statement it was appropriate! LOL I woke up in severe pain this morning. Went to the doctor and have a very bad UTI/bladder infection. No wonder I was hurting all weekend. Thought I just over did it...which the doc said just didn't help matters any! He wants me to take it easy for a few days and not over do it. Walking is okay, but we were power walking somewhat and he wants me to tone it done. Of course, he's happy I am doing it, just wants me to back off a bit.

So, here I sit at home again. I thought after going back to work from the hysterectomy, I wouldn't be here so soon! I am not one that likes to take sick leave. That's why the hysterectomy didn't hardly make a dent in my sick days.

Program wise...I suck! No excuses. Just didn't want to bother. But, don't take that as giving up, because I am not. I have felt too bad to prepare my food and just taking what I can get. It always gets me in trouble. But, have a chicken in the oven and eating good tonight. Taking leftovers to work tomorrow. Going to plan no matter how bad I feel, because I refuse to give up! So, I am kicking my own ass in gear and deciding this is not good enough!

There you go...........another days rambling and that was on pain medicine too!! LOL

UTi's are the worst!!!

Get some pure cranberry juice (not the cocktail crap too much sugar) and start drinking.

Make sure your dr approves.

Don't douche! It only sends the virus back up there.

ACK! UTI's HURT! You poor thing. It is hard to keep making solid and conscious effort when you're not feeling good, but I know you can stay on track. Just think how happy you'll be when you're not only feeling better but also show a loss!! Go for the sticks-o-buttah, baby!!

I hope you recover quickly. Hugs to you!!

Ohhhh pain meds! I pictured a real hippy chick toking on a fat reefer there! Wow, guess those words dated me eh?? laughing here!

No excuses. I like that. Kick your own butt...saved me the hassle! You're working so hard, don't let this sideline you. He didn't say quit, he said tone it down. At least you're not on bed rest!

I'd bring you low calorie chicken soup if you were closer! Hope you feel better soon.

hehe my word verification word is 'squirms'. Just what you're doing with your UTI probably!

Sorry to hear you're sidelined. Hope you get well quick, those horse pills usually kick it out pretty quickly.

I feel for you!

Take it easy...may be get some pre packaged meals to have on hand (WW)for times like these.

Take care!

That is NO fun. I'm so sorry you are in pain. I've had my fair share of that lovely little ailment so I can definitely sympathize. Way to go with getting on track, sick or not. It's hard but you can do it!
