By the looks of things, there’s a very good chance I’m going to be “finishing” this challenge with a cup of hot tea and warm blanket and an iv drip of cold medicine. Ugh! I really dislike being sick. I really, REALLY, dislike being sick when all my kids are, too. Needless to say, I haven’t seen any improvement on the sick front, and also, no improvement on the energy front.

But here’s what I HAVE been doing. I’ve been drinking plenty of water and hot green tea with honey. I haven’t eaten much, but I’ve been eating plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, especially those with vitamin C. I have avoided munching on comfort foods, except for the pizza we ordered tonight so that I didn’t have to cook. ;0) I’ve been getting enough rest. I’ve managed to get up just enough to stay on top of some basic chores like loading the dishwasher so that the house doesn’t get overrun while I’m down for the count. It’s not impressive, but it’s what I’ve been doing.

Tomorrow, Friday morning, is supposed to be a weigh in day. I’ve only exercised 3 times this week. But then, I haven’t been overeating while I haven’t been exercising, so I likely haven’t put any weight back on. I suppose I’ll go ahead and weigh in, even though I haven’t done much. Hey, sometimes you lose a couple pounds just from being sick. Hehe. =P

How has YOUR exercise been going this week? I hope it’s better than mine. WOW! There’s only 3 more days left in January – can you believe it!!??

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
