I went for a 60 minute walk and I feel great! This is my first real workout since getting sick last Sunday. Making lunch and plan to save some of it for lunch tomorrow. It's gonna be whole wheat spaghetti, grilled shrimp, and veggies. Gonna throw in some peach habanero sauce for flavor. Yum!
Haven't been my usual self for the past week. Haven't been consistent with workouts, food, tracking, or reading and commenting on others blogs and status'. Sorry...I plan to get back on track this week! I noticed that I had much more readers and comments when I was consistent. My blogs have been shorter as well. Guess I haven't had much to say.

Today was a good day. Woke up and had pancakes and a cup of coffee for breakfast. Then went to the park with my bf and son. We went for a hike and sat by the creek for awhile watching bike riders and people with dogs pass. It was quite peaceful and beautiful. Came home, had a snack, pb and apple slices, and then we all took a nap. Had 2 hot dogs with chili for dinner and now just watching tv. I decided not to work out today as planned because I fear I'm not fully recovered and might cause this to prolong my illness. Oh well, what's 1 week of not working out? I did go for a walks so it wasn't a totally blown week.
On another note...I'm so tired of water! I need another drink or I'm going to lose my mind!!! Guess I need to go get lemons, crystal light, and ice tea packets to change up my drinks.
I've been reading "Naturally Thin" by Bethany Frankel and I really like it so far. Very practical suggestions.

So I thought today would be the day that I fully recovered. But shortly after arriving to work I started with the cough again. Dug through my purse hoping that I still had some dayquil or even benadryl from the previous days. Sure enough, I found the dayquil! Got through the day.
I packed a gymbag before work and gave it a try on my way home. Started walking on the treadmill and felt good after 10 minutes so I got into a slow jog. After about 6 or 7 minutes I felt weird so I started to walk again. Then the coughing started, deep, painful, coughing. So I stopped and attempted to keep walking but it was too painful and came home.
Had a not so good dinner of nachos with rotel, velveeta, and black beans. Now I feel sick:-(.
This weekends' supposed to be beautiful so I'm going to attempt total body from Jackie Warner's video and then try a brisk walk(no running this time). I'm a little worried about this cough though. If it persists into Monday I'm definitely going to see a doctor.

I didn't log on and write a blog yesterday...boo.
I'm here at the third day of this training. I'm still coughing and have an itchy throat. I feel lethargic. Wish I didn't feel this way. Wish I could just go knock out a run and a weight routine. But I know that I might slow my recovery if I workout so I won't. So I normally don't drink juice because I see it as empty calories. But I've been drinking OJ everyday since Sunday. It's delicious! Hope I don't get hooked!
Should I at the least walk today?? I feel so guilty for not working out. It's too cold outside but I could go and get on the treadmill downstairs...
I spoke to the religious education director at my church regarding the incident with my son. We discussed what I knew about the situation as well as what she knew. She apologized in various ways, and promised that she would take steps to ensure that it never happens again. It was a good conversation. I think I'm going to give it another chance and take him next week.

No workout today...as expected.
I'm still coughing and don't feel like myself. Just when the scale was going down I go and get sick and now the scale is probably going back up! Ugh!
So I dropped my son off at religious education and when picking him up encountered a situation that I wasn't happy with...
First off, the teacher was late, it was already 5:45 and it starts at 5:30. So they merged two classes together and put him in another class. I signed him into the Kinder class instead of the Pre-K class by accident because the binders were right next to each other. Anyhow, when I went to pick him up, I found him wandering around in the main hall away from his classroom. The teacher that was in charge of him was already walking out with her bag, coat, and family and he seemed to be following them. She then noticed him and asked him what he was doing and tried walking him back to the classroom but he had already spotted me and stopped. The lights to the classroom were off and the doors were shut already. Why the hell was he and she doing out of the class if I, his parent, hadn't arrived yet?! He should've been in the class with her. It was exactly 6:30! Unacceptable!
I didn't initially react, but did stop to sign him out from the binder that was in her hands. She pointed to his name "Jonathan" where I had to sign and I told her that wasn't his name. She looked confused, but I was already upset. Found his name and signed. I walked away and saw the center director and told her that he was out of the class and wandering around. She was confused herself and said that he was with her for a little while and must of wandered off while she was distracted. "I get distracted easily" she joked. Um, no! That's not the arrangement that they have there. He isn't supposed to be out of that room unless I have signed him out. This ruined my night. I'm upset. Don't know what to do now. I've been a parishioner of that church for the past 4 years, and I don't want to pull him from religious education altogether. I love what he brings home and everything that he learns there. This is the church that I want to get married in...why did this have to happen!
Now I'm confused. His teacher wasn't there, and the one who took over was late, plus I signed the wrong binder. From the beginning it was chaotic!
Don't know what to do!!!
