it's been frigid here lately. everyone's been healthy so that's something to be so greatful for. i need to remember to wipe down my machines at the gym PRIOR to using them...it's a habit i'm not into yet. i always wipe down after as a consideration and assume everyone else does, but i guess i should be more careful. i'm off to work again this eve until midnight so i should probably take a little rest before that. have a wonderful day, spark friends, what ever this day finds you doing. keep pushing forward. saw a cool quote at my gym the other day:
"right now someone busier than you is running"

i just totally have the munchies tonight and don't typically get these. i made dinner for the boys (which isn't my strong suit as the husband's a chef) and had a wasa cracker with a laughing cow cheese wedge and strawberry jelly on it for myself as i didn't want mac n cheese. then i was still hungry so had some pecan halves with chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup). still wanting something so i had a glass of milk...what's my deal? i then brushed my teeth as it was nearing 7pm and i don't like eating "late" if i'm not planning on being up late (it's a whole different deal if i'm working eves and won't be done until 1130pm). but i still find myself wanting to eat although when i think about my stomach, i don't feel hungry. hormones maybe? i should almost force myself to go to be now so i won't be tempted anymore.

After a much needed week of rest, i've been back to the gym the past two days and am loving it! i was nervous i would lose my stamina as last week it took all i had to do the tasks around the house to keep it from falling apart and looking in shambles (laundry, wiping down surfaces, vacuuming). i was actually able to run 3 miles today and do 20 min on the elliptical which is totally awesome. during the run, i did get a little nervous as i started to feel "tingly" and maybe a little lightheaded. i focused on my breathing and listened to the feeling and it went away so maybe i was just psyching myself out. anyway, the horrid cough is almost gone and it's back to the good healthy energy-filled life. Thank you, God!

i woke up feeling awesome while lying in bed, thinking "i'm gonna hit that gym" before heading to my 1st graders class for some in-class help. when i got out of bed and started moving around, the coughing came on. nasty coughing, green thick crap coughing. i almost opted out of working out but the setup was so perfect as the husband had the day off and could be home with the 3 yr old. "ok i'll take it easy and if i feel bad, i'll cut my workout short" i thought. when i got there, i was actually feeling ok. can the gym have magic healing powers, or what? well, 30 min of elliptical and 25 of stair stepping later, i walked out feeling like a million bucks. well...not exactally, but pretty awesome. this should be ok if our body lets us tolerate it, right? now onto the next part of my day, working 3pm to midnight. silly me didn't take a nap as i had coffee when i got home from the 1st grader's school and couldn't rest. guess if i'm truly sick, my body will have to try harder to prove it to me:)
