Oh what a year already! We ended 2012 with the stomach flu and we are now ringing in 2013 with Influenza. Normally I don't catch what the kids have, but I have caught both of these. I've been pushing through so far with my workouts, but my chest/lungs really hurt. Nutrition has been fine because nothing sounds good and I can't taste anything anyway. I do not want to take a day off of working out, that is when I fall off the wagon and can't get back on. I am just going to listen to my body and take it easier on my workouts when it hurts, but muckle through it. I hope you all are having a better weekend!

Yes, I am one of those many that is in a holiday slump. I know I need to workout and clear out the sugary crap, but I just can't or don't want to, not sure which it is yet. December has just been a blur. We have had so much sickness run through this house, hitting all of us at different times of course. My poor daughter had the stomach flu Christmas morning and had to actually run to the bathroom in between gifts. I felt so bad for her! I am just having a hard time getting back into the swing of my old routine, or any routine for that matter. So that said, I am going to go upstairs and drink my E&E so that there will be no turning back. Then I am going to stay away from this computer and do my CLE strength training, P90X ab workout, and enjoy a date with my treadmill, a long over due date with it!!
Why wait until New Years Day to start, right????

So my two beautiful children decided over the weekend to get sick with fevers, coughs, and nasty noses and then share it with me. I feel terrible. I hate head colds. On top of that TOM started on Saturday, a whole week early. I am one lucky girl, am I not??
I refused to get lazy even though I am not feeling the best. If I go more than a couple of days with falling off the wagon, it takes me FOREVER to get back in the swing of things. I decided that I don't know how much worse I will feel tomorrow, so "SUCK IT UP and get going" is what I told myself!!
I got my lifting done and my 3.3 mile run on the treadmill. I am not going to lie...it sucked. But I got it done and I am done for the day. Both my kids are home sick today so I laid them down for a nap. I am not a nap person myself, but am seriously contemplating taking one!
Hope everyone stays healthy this week!!

SO....today I totally PUSHED myself on the treadmill. First off, I really didn't want to get on it at all today, I just wasn't feeling it. But I refused to let myself slack...I know my temptations are going to get the best of me tomorrow and the days following due to chocolate in the house! I got on and did my warm up. Usually I walk 3 minutes, run 17(sucking for air at this point!!!), walk 3, run 7, walk 3, run 7 and then cool down for 5 minutes. Today, I just wanted to get my mileage and calorie burn DONE! So I just kept telling myself "One more song Kelly, you can do it". It got so stinking hard towards the end, but I DID IT!!! I ran for over 3.1 miles without taking a break with waking!!!! For not wanting to even get on the treadmill to begin with, I FEEL AMAZING!!!!! There is something to be said about pushing yourself harder than you normally do and having the faith in yourself to know that you can do it...you can do ANYTHING you set your mind and heart to.
This is how my pants are going to fit me if I keep up at this rate!!!

8 days until we fly out, but only 7 days until we officially leave and all meet up at the hotel the night before flying out. I can't wait!!
I got another workout in today, though it was shorter. We have been doing some landscaping work at my mom's house this week and it includes shoveling a LOT of rock, dirt, and other stuff. My body is quite upset with me, but in a good way!! My husband was shocked with me. I totally pulled my weight when it came to all this work. He told me that had we done all this before I really got consistent with my workouts, especially my ST, I would've wimped out and whined the entire time. He was excited to see me get after it. And to be honest, I was really proud of myself. I worked hard at all that shoveling and stuff. I hung right in there with him. It meant so much to me for him to say that to me and that he noticed how STRONG I have become!!
We have lots to do before we leave next week and of course not a free evening before. Not sure when and how I am going to get all the packing done. But hey....it's the beach, all we need is a swimsuit!!
