I am sick...again. This is the third time in about two months that I have had this particular chest cold. Every time I get rid of it, I'm so thankful and then it comes back a couple weeks later! Ugh! (And, before you say I should check my house for mold...that's not it. We literally JUST built this house...it's brand new, so it's not that.)
Anyway, this sickness was kind enough to begin again just as my 3 yr old was battling a 4-day fever, my 6 year old suddenly woke up and threw up in my bed and my 9 yr old came home from a slumber party at 6am, saying she felt sick and has been passed out ever since. Lovely.
Now, normally this would completely de-rail me from any and all health goals. Let's be honest...I ate 3 cinnamon rolls this morning. :( And, you know how I was going strong and doing great last year and suddenly stopped and gave up in July? Yep...that started with an illness, a hiatus from workouts and a general resigning of my will to being lazy.
But, I realize that if I am serious about getting healthy and I really do want to see my goals met and not still feel disgusting and unhealthy a year from now, I can't let things like this derail my efforts. So, I'm saying now...the 3 cinnamon rolls this morning was IT. It was only 330 calories...I can live with that and plan the rest of today's healthy meals and still be within my calorie limit. And I WILL get out there and exercise the moment my body is feeling better. In fact, if I am up to it, I might even try to squeeze in a LITTLE bit of exercise today...even if it's just 15 minutes of squats, push-ups and crunches during the commercials while I'm watching TV.
I'm certainly down...but, this time, I am NOT OUT!!!!!
