Monday Nov 29

Why can't I seem to stay well these days. Last Sunday I had a stomach virus and on Thursday I started getting a cold/upper respiratory junk. My head is still somewhat congested but mostly my throat is dry and hacky. I am sick of being sick. Welcome to fall in Missouri. :(

I started out the week feeling hopeful that there was lots of gym time in my future (the kids were with their dad over the holiday weekend). I did get in some gym time, but with the cold I didn't get there as much as I had hoped. I hate working out when I am stuffy headed and got a runny nose, I spend more time holding a tissue to my nose than working out. Plus it is just uncomfortable to breathe.

I had hoped that some of the weight loss I saw last week would stick but unfortunately it did not. I am at 160 which is down one pound from where I was before I got sick.

So once again I am whining about being sick and frustrated.

On a good note I won a chance to talk w/ Mr Pete Cohen sometime in the future. I am not sure how that is supposed to work but it was for getting my cardio minutes in.

I know all this crumminess is temporary and I am going to keep chugging along. I am drinking my hot tea w/ lemon and honey to kick this sore throat and I hope to be back to normal in a couple days (what is normal anyway).

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Don't forget to wash out your nose with Saline. That will help a lot! Good luck on your goals this week.

So Sorry to hear that everyone is sick or has been sick! No fun! Listen to your body, give it time to recoop and then start slowing back into your workouts. You can do it hun!
