Ugh... I am STILL sick today. Last night I felt horrible and was actually in bed at 6:30pm. I ate some soup last night, and I think I ate TOO much of it, because I was dry heaving for an hour afterwards. TMI??? This morning my throat is still feeling swollen and I have a heavy head. The girls are still sick too. They are both coughing alot at night, but just have runny noses during the day. I think they are just passing it back and forth between them! Hubby is made of steel and has managed to live in a house full of sick girls and get NOTHING. I do think he is pretty excited in the mornings to go to work..LOL.. but I dont blame him.

So the measurements helped fight the urge to get on the scale... I think I will do that every 4 weeks, so that it will be my half-way point between weigh-ins.

I did BOTH my workouts yesterday... I thought for sure it would help me get over this flu thing faster... and it still might.. but ugh! Today is my weight lifting day, which should be easier to do with a heavy head... I know some of you think I am crazy, but there is one thing I learned from my good ole days.... My dad was my coach back in the karate days, and whenever I started getting sick, or had a cold, I was not allowed to just lay in bed. I had to do my regular scheduled workouts no matter what.... and most of the time, I got over them 10X's faster. Since then I have become a slacker and a baby about being sick. I usually want to just lay wrapped in a blanket and get waited on hand and foot... but uh-uh.. not anymore.. besides the fact that I have 2 kids that are in constant motion, I need to keep my body in constant motion and get over this stupid thing. Like DE says... Moms dont have time to be sick!....but in no way does this mean that I have to stop whining about being sick! LOL

I started reading the book "WICKED" which has actually been made into a Broadway Musical.. and it is awsome! I wish I didnt live in the middle of nowhere, because I would love to see this book in action! It is based on the story The Wizard Of Oz.. but it is the Wicked Witch of the Wests story! I am about half way thru it, and I cant put it down! You have to read it...(or see the play!)

Well, back to being sick! Have a Blessed Day and we'll see ya'll tomorrow!

Wicked is exceptional! If you ever get a chance to see it on stage be sure to go, it's a blast!

Sorry you're still not feeling well, hope you get better soon!

sure sorry you are sick, you have to stay away from warm cowboys and wet grass

I've heard a little about that, but haven't thought about it too much. I'm definitely going to have to pick up Wicked.

I think you are right to keep moving. And if something keeps you from doing your FULL workout, that's ok. If you don't do SOMETHING (I think 1/3 your normal routine) you lose what you have worked so hard to gain. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Awh sorry to hear you aren't feeling so well. It isn't nice being sick!

Who wrote this book "wicked"? I never heard of it before but the "Wizard of Oz" is a favourite of mine! Would make interesting reading.

I really enjoyed that book; I think it's the best one from that author's rewritten fairy tale series.

I sent you the annatto seeds tonight, so be on the look-out in your mail in the next few days!

I hope you feel amazingly better tomorrow morning.
