Okayyyy…last chance…

Guess what kids? I woke up Monday morning and my eyeball looked like this

pink eye

Now that wasn’t so bad was it? I bet you it was worse for me than it was for you.

It actually looked way worse than that but the lighting made it hard to capture. I made a last minute doctor’s appointment because my philosophy is that you only get 2 eyes, so you better be careful with them.

I guessed it was infected. I woke up and only 1 eye was bright red + it didn’t hurt like it was scratched. I was right. I have conjunctivitis, aka pink eye.

The doctor said it was a minor infection, most likely caused by being around someone who has a cold. Sounds about right. It seems like every person at work is sick and is still showing up to the office. It’s driving me crazy cause if I get sick before my half I’m gonna cut someone.

i will cut you

For now I’m stuck wearing my glasses. I don’t wear them too often, and I can get along fine without them.

I must say, it’s not easy working out with them on. Luckily yesterday was only strength training and stretching, so no head bobbing.

Sienna didn’t think I needed to do abs yesterday.

In other workout news…

Any of my other fellowย Tone It Up lovers out there, did you hear?? Karena and Katrina will have their own show on Bravo starting in January! I’m pretty excited, not going to lie ๐Ÿ™‚

TIU Karena and Katrina

I started following TIU in college as an easy way to get quick and effective workouts in when I was super busy. I fell in love with their girl-power attitude and healthy living beliefs. I have tried Perfect Fit Protein, their blender bottle, and their Beach Babe DVD…and I LOVE all of them. I really want to purchase their nutrition plan, but am not yet willing to spend the $150. <– You hear that mom? Birthday or Christmas gift idea *wink wink.

Last random topic: I’m now a dot-com website!!! I told myself that after I reached x number of readers, I would buy my domain. So thank you to all my readers/blog buddies! You guys rock!

Have you ever had pink eye?

Any glasses wearers out there? Do you run with them on? I don’t think I will.

Any other TIU lovers out there?ย BTW I am in no way affiliated with Tone It Up.

  1. OMG your pets are sooooo cute all cuddling together!!
    I have never had pink eye (thankfully). I do wear glasses but only when I am in class or something so I have never worked out with them. I feel like they would be uncomfortable. Hope your eye has a speedy recovery!

    1. Haha thanks! Those are actually my boyfriend’s pets so I cannot take credit for their cuteness ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Exactly! I think it would be incredibly uncomfortable to run in them. Thank you, my eye is already improving ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’ve had pink eye and it SUCKS. Also I normally wear contacts and hate running with them on so I confess, I’ve run blind before. I don’t advise it, it’s kinda scary but on the plus you rely on your other senses more ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m sorry about your eyeball!

    I wear contacts, but I’ve run with my glasses before–especially if it’s REALLY early in the morning. As long as they are tight enough, they feel fine (I think most eye doctor places tighten them for free)
