Feeling a little better today, just not quite up to par. Started the Mucinex today, cuz this sinus crud has now settled in my chest. Hopefully, will be 99% better tomorrow, I'm really missing my workouts, it's killing me to come home and plop on the couch and read, but honestly, I haven't felt like moving. Hopefully today will show marked improvement. I have to suck it up and go to class tonight, it's our first one, so I can't miss it.
I enrolled my daughter and I in a women's self defense class at a local karate studio. I wanted to make sure my baby girl knew how to defend herself since she will be going away to college next year and mommy won't be there to protect her. I think all young ladies (and women) should take these classes, ya never know when you may be confronted by a stranger in a parking lot, someone trying to take your purse or even date rape. Want my baby to be aware of these situations and know the best way out of them. So I volunteered to go with her to the classes, to keep her motivated (wink, wink). Who knows, we both may end up liking martial arts. Will report tomorrow. Til then.... Hope all my SP buddies are working out extra hard this week just for me, since I can't.

Day Two of being sick - YUCK, I'm over it already. Hubby made some yummy homemade chicken noodle soup for me last night, he makes the best soup. Went to bed at 8:00, so you know I'm sick crawling into bed that early.
Woke up this morning, after tossing and turning all night, didnt really get a good night's rest - STILL SICK this morning and now hubby is too. I feel worse today than yesterday, but hopefully that means I will be better tomorrow. You know you always get worse before you get better - at least that's what I keep telling myself.
So we both will drag ourselves thru the day, pump up the Sudafed and have leftover soup tonight for dinner, hopefully whatever bug we've caught will leave very soon, cuz I missing out on a lot of exercise and fitness minutes :(
Hope all my sparkies are well and having a super day.

I woke up yesterday with a terrible head cold, didn't really do much at all yesterday.
Starting the week off SICK really SUCKS. My head hurts, my chest is congested, stuffy and runny nose and coughing. Oh how I hate being sick. Just gonna drag myself thru the day. Whaaa, whaaa, boo hoo, woah woah is me
Hoping I can manage an upper body arm workout today, but I'm betting I can't run with a headache and chest congestion. This really is NOT a convenient time for illness, since it is going to interfere with my training this week, but as my sister says... "It is, what it is", so I'm NOT going to have a bad attitude about this, I'm just gonna feel physically horrible with a SMILE on my face. It could be worse, it could be race week.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and is enjoying a happy Monday. Could someone please pass the tissues and the Sudafed, cough, cough, sniffle, sniffle.

Woo hoo - yesterday afternoon we did the P90X Kempo, what a great kickboxing workout, then did the AB Ripper. - Boy was I whipped when we got finished. Glad to get in that workout before dinner.
Dinner with my son was nice, AND I DID NOT OVEREAT (patting myself on the back) glad I got to see him before he moves on Saturday. Wishing him the best in his new endeavor.
Today, is a "Take It Easy" day - gonna get in a 3-mile walk at lunch, no running today.
Tonight - High school football game against our rival and I'm saving calories for a ballpark hotdog, nothing says football like a hotdog, yum, they better have relish this time. Good luck to our DOLPHINS, we are undefeated - GO FINS !!!
After game tonight gonna do the P90X arms and shoulder workout - gotta get it in before the day is over. I have a plan and I'm sticking as close to it as possible, only one little slip up this week with missing a workout, so I can count this week as a SUCCESS, scale didn't move, but a fitness SUCCESS.
Tomorrow it's an early a.m. 7 mile run, only 2 weekends left before the race after tomorrow's run, gotta work on some speed.
Gonna be a glorious weather day, gonna take my motorcycle out for a spin to enjoy the beautiful weather. Hope everyone has a great weekend, I will check in with you all on Monday.

Ended up running 5 miles last night before dinner - woo hoo - and had lasagna for dinner. Had to hustle to pack lunches for next day and wash a load of clothes before Survivor. I made it with 5 minutes to spare, good thing, because if I sat down 15 minutes before it came on, I would have fallen sleep, the run really whipped me last night.
Overslept, AGAIN this morning, but not a bad thing, I caught up on some much needed sleep, been running on low fuel in that department.
Leaving work a little early today. Gonna go home and bust out a quick workout, shower, then meet my son for dinner. I don't get to see him too often and he's moving on Saturday to Maryland. Makes me sad to think my son will now be 4 hours away. But hopefully this will be a great move for him, new job, new people, new life. Glad he's getting "it" together.
Dinner - it's Mexican, my son's favorite, so I will have to extra careful not to suck down a whole bowl of tortilla chips, I know it will be a very emotional dinner, saying goodbye.
This is going to be a happy and sad kinda day, just hope to make it through. "LIFE" it happens.
