Ship’s Log–August 6th


My immune system definitely is revved up into high gear, thanks to an abscess on my leg. This is a horrible side effect of running, but sometimes those sweaty clothes rubbing against sweaty skin comes with a cost. If this thing isn’t cleared up by the start of next week, it’s a trip to the doctor and a round of antibiotics for me.

In the meantime, I’m going to keep plodding through my workouts giving the best I have, even if it’s less than usual, and focus on eating foods that will boost my immune system.

Distance to Goal Weight: 21.3 pounds. Thanks, take-out vegan quesadilla, for the bump back up and the nightmare filled sleep as my stomach struggled to digest you
