It's Not Easy Being Blue

My exercise plan for today has been kiboshed. I don’t feel very good about this, but I guess I left it too late for it to be realistic.

I’m feeling a bit down right this second; it’s kind of out of nowhere, but there it is. I suddenly find myself with just a touch of melancholy to accompany the quiet misery of being sick.

This week’s not yet shaping up to be a very successful one as far as healthy choices go. I wish I was feeling more optimistic...

- 10 glasses of water
- 1 Mandarin orange
- 1 toasted whole wheat English muffin with margarine, bacon, and an egg
- 1 banana nut energy bar
- 1 pear
- 3 cups spinach salad with croutons, dried cranberries, yellow pepper, mushroom, and calorie-wise Greek feta and oregano dressing
- 3/4 cup fat free lemon chiffon yogurt

- 30 stomach crunches


  1. Hugs?
    And a get-well-soon wish?
    Take it easy for a while and then get back on track for real!

  2. BIG HUGS.
    for me SO often the sad accompanies the sick.
    It is as though my body is just taking a break all around (from the functioning properly :) to the being cheery) and when Im better I know it cuz my disposition rebounds too.

    xo xo,


  3. Sickness always does the same thing to me. I hope you bounce back very soon. Sending some big, squishy hugs your way. :)

  4. Do what you can do. You should feel better about it later. Hard workouts are not encouraged when you are sick anyways but I think light, moderate wk/outs are fine.

    get better.

  5. awww...hope you feel better soon. Hugs.

    And thank you again for the thoughtful email this weekend. I was so touched by the kindness of a stranger.

  6. Give yourself a break! You've come so far, and you will get back on track when you feel better. Please take care of yourself.

  7. Suffering through a miserable Feb cold myself so I understand and have a ton of empathy. Lets both feel better and look forward to March.

  8. I hope you feel better soon! Being sick does get us down! Hormones attack us too. I find that sometimes I get in this melancholy feeling & it is my hormones. You are sick but some it it may be that too.... HUGS!

  9. Being sick is always a bummer, but I think especially at this time of year. I always feel like "Enough already" if I get sick in February. Get better soon and take care of yourself!

  10. Thanks, all! Your kind words go a long way!

  11. I hope that you will feel better soon. It is so hard to not feel 100% - but you will bounce back before you know it.

  12. I hope you feel better soon! Don't worry too much about your weight right now. Just focus on getting better. Of course, once you get better, hop right back on that horse! :o)

  13. Looks like you're doing well on the food front and I wish that I could get down as much water as you do on a daily basis.
