This is REALLY getting old!!!

I am sick...yet again!!! Is this happening to any other family??? We keep getting sick and spreading it around to each family member! I have not run since that 'first' workout because I am wheezing, hacking, and coughing. I can't breathe out of my nose and taking deep breaths makes me exertion isn't really an option right now. I really hope it goes away soon! I really hate that I can't seem to get back on track!


Last night was the first day of the 90 day fitness challenge through David's work. Quite a bit of good information...much of which I've learned before...but some new insights. They were also peddling their products; supplements, protein shakes, and teas. Even if I wanted to get into all of that stuff, David and I just don't have the money. That stuff was expensive...even with the 'generous' 20% discount we are getting thanks to David's company. We were given some samples of a few of their products and I am trying them but I'm pretty skeptical. I don't doubt that some people benefit from them...but I often wonder if its really the products themselves or the overall lifestyle changes that a person normally goes through when they start taking these products. I guess we'll see.


I watched the documentary Forks Over Knives the other night and while I've never really considered being a vegetarian it really made me think about my eating habits and those of my family. I borrowed the book of the same name from the library and plan to see what it all entails in more detail. I definitely recommend watching the documentary though. Its in the "instant" movies on Netflix.


Since I've been sick and resting I finally made a new winter hat for Nathan. He has been asking for a Lightning McQueen hat. I hadn't been able to find a pattern that I thought looked 'good' I ended up improvising my own pattern from bits and pieces of different hat patterns and just my own creation. I think it turned out pretty good.

I hope everyone has a good Wednesday! : )


  1. Super cute hat!!!! Sorry to hear your sick again and no your not the only family I know sevral who have had the nasty bug go thru their house several times. Hope you get to feeling better.

  2. The hat looks awesome! I'm so impressed with your improvisational and quick learning skills. I keep hearing about 'Forks Over Knives'. Going to have to watch it so we can discuss it and 'Never Let Me Go'. Yes, the bugs keep going round and round. You are not alone. Get well soon, chica. Fluids, rest, vitamins, and meds. You can do it!

  3. I have heard a lot about that documentary I'm going to have to watch it this weekend.
