If you wake up with a sore throat, achy body and are generally feeling punk, listen to your body. Sometimes it is NOT wise to keep up your normal regimen. It's okay to take a day or two off from working out. Take naps if possible or at least go to bed earlier. Drink hot tea with honey & lemon, take vitamin C and eat chicken soup. Your recovery will be faster and you won't infect others, which might result in re-exposing yourself to the 'bug'. You DON'T want 'same song, 2nd dance' with a cold.

I love the planner section of SP, because while I love to blog sometimes its not something I'd like to share at the moment or something I just need to get off my chest. The journal is PERFECT for this and no one sees it but you and you can go back and see your progress days,weeks,months back.
It costs nothing, no ones judging you, and it just feels good sometimes to get those feelings out.
