Ick.... yesterday was just wasn't all that great. First I woke up sneezing with my eye swollen shut. It must be spring... my allergies have arrived. Then I got a call in the morning saying that a job had opened up at the hospital and that I should fax in my application. So I spent most of the morning filling out paperwork and driving around town trying to find a fax machine. When we got home, the weather was so nice that the girls did not want to go inside. I figured I had a million things that still had to get done outside, so we ran around the yard for a while. BIG MISTAKE. I was sneezing so much I couldn't catch my breath.. and my eyes were starting to swell up again.. one didn't want to open at all... damn cedar trees. So we came back inside and had lunch. I put the girls down for a nap and then laid on the couch trying to keep from itching my eyes. I tried to get myself to do a workout.. but couldn't. Hubby came home a couple of hours later and I got up and did my Tae Bo Abs.. but that was all I could manage. I ate terrible, having a bowl of cereal (there goes my 40 day challenge), popcorn, a pb&j sandwich.. and between my regular meals. grrrrrrr. So today I am determined to make it a great day. I am going to the store first thing this morning and getting some eye drops and antihistamine.. I am going to get lots of veggies and fruit and fill myself up on everything natural today. Hubby is home today, so we will most likely be doing alot more yard and field work... so exercise is definitely in the forecast. I'm looking forward to tomorrow mornings gym workout... especially the swimming!

Have a Blessed Day!!

It's ok TL.

Sometimes there are bigger reasons then what you see to have an off day.

You've been doing wonderfull at getting healthier and being such a positive role model for your girls.

Don't stress over it, just let it go and move on.

And, could you send me some of your nice weather :)

Poor Tigerlilly!! *hugs* I'm fortunate not to have allergies, but know they are a real issue! I hope the meds help!

Take care,

I am sorry to hear of your allergies. I hope the medicine works.

I have to apologize for not being a daily/weekly reader of all of the blogs in the challenge. I have been really busy, but I made a promise to myself that I will be back doing my rounds. Please forgive me.

Everyone has an "off day" but it is great to see you are putting it behind you and starting afresh!

Sorry to hear about your allergies - I know how awful it can be.

Enjoy the gym & swimming.
