Foiled Again

My plan to jump start my working out and eating right has blown up in my face.  Last weekend I had a great race which got me all pumped up to get back to the gym.  The day before the race I wasn't feeling my best.  After the race I felt worse. I brushed it off as allergies.  I did the Shakeology 3 day cleanse to get my body ready for healthy eating.  I felt bad the whole time.  I figured it was lack of calories and caffeine.  After the cleanse, I still felt bad.  I also had friends come into town this weekend.  I went from eating/drinking nothing but healthy stuff for 3 days, to drinking beer and eating burgers, in less than a day.

So, my jump start into healthy living turned into a weekend of drinking, eating junk, having a sinus infection and the beginning of bronchitis.  It has led me to gain back at least a few of the pounds I lost and has landed me in bed, not the gym.

I could let this get me down, but I'm not going to.  I'm not letting this ruin my jump start.  It's just a little hiccup.  Jump start part 2 begins tomorrow...if I can workout without coughing up a lung.


  1. I am LOVING The Skinny Rules by Bob Harper. It has changed eating in our family for the healthier!

    2. Kerrie- I think I discovered The Skinny Rules on your blog! I was good about sticking with it for a couple of weeks then I slacked off. I need to get back to it.

  2. Still loving it...but I'm not losing weight! Argh.
