As I said in my blog a few days ago, I am doubling up on the BootCamp WorkOut videos daily, so I can catch up to where I should be since I missed 5 days last week from being sick.
2/21/11- I did Day 2 & Day 3 BootCamp videos. I wasn't feeling very motivated and was tired.
But, I made myself do my 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, then did my 2 bootcamp videos in the afternoon right before I had to pick up my daughter from school
2/22/11-I did Day 4 & Day 5 BootCamp videos. This almost didn't happen. It was the first day in a long time that I didn't have any kids at home with me. I had planned on doing the taxes last Tuesday, but I got the stomach virus, so that never happened. So that was my plan for today, to do the taxes. I did the state and local online pretty quickly, however the federal always takes more time. And then I was missing a couple pieces of information I needed and wasted time looking for the two items. It made me so mad to waste that time. Before I knew it, it was time to get my daughter from school, go to our allergy shot appointment, then the library. We come home, have dinner and then of course she has more homework than usual that she needs help with. But after she was done it was like 7pm and I thought to myself that I could get in my cardio and the 2 bootcamp videos...so I did! Before I knew it I was done, packed her lunch for school, got them to bed and took my shower. Not as relaxing of an evening as I would have liked, but I got it done. I'm hoping tomorrow's schedule meshes better and I don;t have to rush around so much.
Tomorrow will be Day 6 & 7 videos and then I will be back to where I should be in the videos for the challenge.

So, I got sick with a stomach virus Monday night around 10pm (Valentine's night). An hour later my 8 year old started with it and about an hour after her my 4 year old started with it. (Nothing like cleaning up after them, laundering sheets, pillow cases and blankets, all in between being sick myself. Thank you God for giving me the strength I needed to get through all that!)
Tuesday we were in bed most of the day, barely ate anything. Yesterday we s-l-o-w-l-y started to eat, but I still didn't have too much of an appetite. This morning I finally got to clean the bathrooms more thoroughly and now I am tired and resting because I am still a bit dizzy.
Tomorrow I have to get my daughter from school early to take her for her 8-year well-visit, bring her back to school and then take her to a Brownie field trip at a Karate place. I highly doubt I will get in a workout tomorrow.
So, my plan as of now is to start back where I left off on Monday. I will be at Wk2/Day7, entering Week 3 of the challenge. I asked this question on the challenge message board and they say I do not have to start over and can continue where I left off.
My thinking is that there will always, always, always be hurdles in life. Getting sick is inevitable sometimes. You can try to prevent it as much as you want, but it does not always work that way. So this virus set me back 4 days. I will deal with it. I will move on. Actually while I was sick in bed I kept thinking how good it would feel to workout. How I wished I could feel better enough to be able to move. I think when you get sick you appreciate even more all the things you can do when you are healthy. I am going to try to keep that mentality with me; looking at exercise and eating healthy as a privilege. To be fortunate enough to be able to move your body and make healthy choices in your life. I need to remember this as a mantra. It is my responsibility to take care of my body and do the best I can for it.

Day #13 of the challenge for me.
Yesterday I did okay with the birthday party. I did not have a big breakfast and had a nice salad and a slice and a half of pizza. Unfortunately we had Subway for dinner, but I didn't each much else the rest of the day. I also got my 10-minute toning workout squeezed in there. It was rough, but I made myself do it. It's been so busy around here and I am so tired.
This morning I made myself do my 30-minutes on the elliptical and the 10-minute boot camp video. I've been doing a lot of cleaning around the house today too. Changed the sheets on the beds, vacuumed, and did 3 loads of laundry. I'm pooped out. I'm not expecting anything special for Valentine's Day, especially since my husband knows I am working hard at losing weight.
Wishing Everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

Day #11 of the challenge.
I did the Day 5 BootCamp Video and as my Bonus video I did SP's 7-minute Upper Body Workout video. I also did 30-minutes on the elliptical. Tomorrow it's going to be a challenge to get in just my 10-minute video because we are going to my nephew's birthday party.
Today I spent most of the day on my feet because my daughters and I made cut-out heart cookies for her school goody bags. My back is killing me. Can't wait to just chill out tonight. It's been a long week!
