I have had the dreaded tummy bug that has been sweeping the Coast. Yesterday felt like absolute cr*p - so much so I finished work, drove home, put my new flannelette jarmies on and was curled up on the couch by just before 5pm. I stayed there until 8.30 when I went to bed - unheard of for me to go to bed much before midnight !!!!
This morning I went to work - not so much because I felt better - but because the BAS returns are due on Monday and I still have two companies that I haven't closed for March because the director keeps putting off making a decision about entries that she wants processed between the two companies. And, because they affect the GST, I can't close until she makes up her mind. Today she finally decided how to treat the entries and made a decision on the value of the transactions for me to process. Unfortunately I could only manage to get one company finished and closed today which means that I need to finish the other company tomorrow or Friday - if I feel like this tomorrow I think it may be Friday before I finally get all the March accounts finished (except I do have an appointment with the osteo at 8am).
I am doing really well at listening to my body and accepting that it is OK for me to put my exercise on hold. It is not on hold because I am being lazy and don't want to exercise. It is on hold because my body needs to rest and heal in order for me to exercise when it is healed and rested. Today I was going to run because I had actually put it in my diary but then when I thought about it I realised that it really wouldn't be the smartest thing I could do - so I didn't - and the best thing is THAT IT IS OK that I didn't. My trainer got hold of me tonight to see how I was because I wasn't able to train last night and he said that unless there is a drastic improvement tomorrow he would rather I didn't train tomorrow either but just rest and get better.
I took some crackers to work today but they didn't really do the job and didn't manage to stay in too long so will see how I go tomorrow. Hopefully there will be at least some improvement and then maybe on Friday I can do just a shortish run - just to be able to get out there and do something. Not that I have really missed it the last two days - the last thing I have felt like it doing anything more strenuous than lying in front of the TV !!!
I loved this TFTD when I read it this morning :
