Mr. Incredible has Covid. Tests came back yesterday. He is actually feeling decent. Not great.  But not horrible. I so far have no symptoms. I'm trying to just rest in the moment, trust in God, and not worry about what tomorrow holds. 

 

Yesterday was nice weather. I went for a long walk Our suburbs have sidewalks, so I can cross the street and be far away from people. Thankfully, the COvid test results cam back quickly.But seeing positive,  made me anxious. Which is just sort of an emotional reaction.He was actually feeling a lot better yesterday, so no reason to worry.But, my brain  keeps going through worst case scenarios. Deep breath. Right now he is fine. If he has complications, we will deal with that when the time comes. 

 

The weather was almost 50 degrees, so yesterday (and today) I opened up all our windows and let fresh air in. I also bought some mouth wash and X-clear, a  sinus spray with  Xylitol. Some studies have said that they can lessen the viral load. The sinus spray is one I've used for my allergies before, so I figured it couldn't hurt. We've been taking Vitamin D  since the start of the pandemic, and upped our dosage. Melatonin is also supposed to help, so we are taking that (I take it anyway when I have trouble sleeping) I had fresh fruit and veggies delivered, so we are eating healthy (isn't it a great world we live in to have all that stuff delivered)

 

Since we were on vacation, we were really low on food.And I had cancelled our normal organic produce delivery.  I was able to order some more. And we have lots of frozen veggies, that we need to eat. Tonight , we are eating prime rib (I think) We bought a half a cow, and this is from that. I took it out of the freezer , and thought it was a cross rib rib(cheaper cut) but today when I looked at it, the label says rib roast, and I looked that up, and it's a prime rib. Not something I would normally fix unless it's for a special meal, but it's defrosted now.

 

I'm glad the weather is decent. Not bright sunshine, but not dreary rain either. I'm going to go for a walk after I finish this.

 

Not going to reflect on how my week's goals were, as nothing went as planned. I have been emotional eating though.Which is fine for this weekend. I think Monday I will start tracking again. Goal is around maintenance .I think Even if I go over some, I'm fine with that. Just an awareness of how many calories I eat. Of course, right now, my thoughts are around if I get sick. I think my plan is just to track, and then if I get sick, not worry about it. And exercise I'm going to do the Boss battle for level 4 tomorrow,  and then GMB Vitamin. And maybe play with my staff some. Not sure . If I'm tired, I'm not going to push it. A lot of really trying to listen to my body.

I'm so sorry to hear that Mr. Incredible has Covid!  Stress, and having your life turned a little upside down, makes following goals so hard. I think your strategy here is really smart.  Not worrying about last week's goals - not being on yourself about getting off track.  Just getting back on track, slowly, in the ways that seem feasible.  Be gentle with yourself!  And take care.  I'll be hoping that you are able to stay healthy, and that Mr. Incredible recovers as quickly as possible.

Dang girl, I fell behind and so much happened here.  Soooo sorry you had to cancel the trip.   But like others have said, what a blessing it happened before and not in the midst of it.     I can't even imagine how much I'd panic trying to figure out if I stay ON vacation to honor the quarantine, or try to find a way to get home to quarantine there, or ... what the best option even is in that scenario.

 

Glad it seems thus far to be mild-ish.   Praying continued peace, strength and protection for you and the family.

Sorry that Mr. Incredible is sick, but good that he seems to be weathering it well. Sorry for both of you about the trip. The disappointment and worry must be a tough combination. Wishing you both health.

Tracked on MFP.Sometimes, when I'm on deficit, I feel like there's something wrong with me, and I just can't be satisfied with enough food. Then I go on maintenance, and I find I do feel satisfied, and it's actually a lot of food.  I guess the thing with deficit eating is, you just have to know that you are going to be hungry.Which is why I may go the short term 2- 3 weeks, and then maintenance 1 week.

 

The discussion about this on your thread over the past few weeks has inspired me. I'm gonna focus on diet for the next two weeks and then probably take a bit of a break. It's too hard to always restrict continuously and (at least for me) too hard to intuitively eat exactly what I need to to keep my weight where I would like it.

Thanks. There was an article about a local women in her 90's beating Covid. She swore that it was the chicken soup her family brought her. I'm a firm believer in chicken soup, so I made some for my husband!

That is exactly how I feel on diet.

I passed the level 4 bodyweight challenge today! Then did some GMB vitamin, which was jumping practice.I worked at not caving my knees in when I land.

 

Went on a long walk today.Weather was mild. We have all our windows opened (trying to get rid of plague air) I also sat outside on our deck and read.Did I mention I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series? I'm on book 6. We are also re-watching the movies, but that's on hold, until we can watch it in the same room without me getting plague germs,

 

My goals today were today track food, workout, make a meal plan for the week, cook dinner and clean it. I've worked out, made a meal plan, cooked dinner.Need to  type in dinner and snack for MFP.And clean dishes. Can't wait until hubby is better and he can resume his cleaning duties!
