Friday - barely Crunching

Well, this is my fourth day of sick, and although I praise the Lord the fever is down, now the sinus infection is causing all the fun side effects which have me carrying the kleenex in one hand & the the lip and nose balm in the other :) I was able to only do 20 min. with Jillian again this a.m. - for some reason, I had less strength than I´ve had all week, but I´m not worried...BECAUSE...this a.m. I weighted and the scale said (after several checks!)

69.4!!!!!!!!!!! Can´t even remember when was the last year I saw those digits. Won´t count them for a point until next Wednesday´s measure in.

One of the side effects when I get sick is that I always loose weight. So being sick is always bitter sweet...yuk for the pain and feeling miserable, yeah for loosing weight! I´m thanking the Lord again for the crunch because I believe I´ve been able to fight off this virus better, because I´m exercising. No antibiotics; just natural remedies (trying the apple juice with Apple cider vinager that I think Tami reccommended.

Hey, vey well lady, lowr than 70, that´s great.

Keep up crunching but wait until you get better and hoping is soon.

Joy, I can't take credit for the apple cider vinegar. That wasn't from me. Hope you feel better soon. The downside of losing weight when you are sick is that it is all from muscle loss, so you will have to work hard on building muscle when you feel better.

I'm going to try your soup recipe today!

I too lose when i am sick. It is bitter sweet. I always find it helps me stay off the foods and get my body ready to eat healthier.

Hope you are up and around for the weekend and our Spanish holiday.

Big Crunchin hugs
