Stupid ear

Am not happy with my ear – makes me wonky and feel like throwing up. Particularly don’t like it while I’m driving and it goes stupid! Hopefully today will be a better day than yesterday, but I’m doubting it. Not planning on doing anything physical today; got a truck load of work on, and need to try and get the place together for the lush of my life, who comes home tonight at 11pm.

Ear, please be good today. You can be shitty again tomorrow, but please be nice today!


Week 7 objectives

Alrighty. How’d I do with the Week 6 objectives?

1. Repeat swimming – 100m in two strokes. Nope.
2. #RunForJapan – $5 per kilometre. Yes, but ongoing. 12.2K so far
3. Get through the week! Hmmm. That’s debateable.

Week 7 Objectives?

  1. Get rid of this shitty ear.
  2. Drink more water.
  3. Plan meals like I’m supposed to.
  4. Do 5K cross country on Wednesday.
  5. Attempt to get to 20K by next sunday for the RunForJapan fundraiser.

Hell. I’ll be happy just to be running again. Tomorrow, I’m going to go for a walk even, I don’t care if it’s just to the end of the road… today was hell! And if I don’t come good, then next week will be week 7.1. I’ve done it before, I’ll do it again.

Still ear? *groan*

Saw the doc, and she put me on cold and flu tablets – which now carry a warning about exercising in the heat while taking them. Given I live in the tropics, and it’s always bloody hot, I’m not taking any chances.

Contrary to my opinion earlier today that I was on the downhill slide to hospitalisation with vertigo, I now think that things are moving in there – cos it got very, very itchy at one point. Which made me delieriously happy, and made my work collegues look at me very strangely while I was wiggling my finger in my ear furiously and grinning like a loon…

Hopefully tomorrow I won’t feel so odd, and will be able to partake in some light activity. Gym opens at 8, remember? And no swimming without ear drops and plugs!

The scales have not been kind this week, and I know it’s all due to eating badly – ie not enough, and not properly balanced. One more week until the cook gets home, and I’m so looking forward to it, I’m grinning now. Maybe it’s the tablets?


I’m starting to feel crummy – my ear is not being kind… although it’s not hurting, it’s making me feel very wonky, and I don’t like it. I had a dizzy spell at work, so I have to go back and see the doc in the morning. She reckons there’s pressure behind it, and I’m betting it’s water from the pool. Damn my eardrums (but not so’s they stop working or get worse pls. thx)!

Did squash for an hour – which was good to shake out the cobwebs. My back was a little sore this morning from boxing on Tues and the run yesterday, but seems to have come good once I tripped over my feet and almost assed up on the court. I’m SO glad noone was looking, I felt like a right dork!
