I’m still here!…and why do guys do this?

Hi everybody! I’m sure you were missing my daily recaps of eat, work, run, eat ice cream, and repeat…don’t worry, I’m back. šŸ™‚ I sure missed you guys.

Annabelle and I got sick over the weekend, so when you combine sickness and a sick baby and no sleep, there isn’t much time for anything else. Thankfully, I think we are all on the mend now.

Let’s recap the past few days…

Friday, Valentine’s Day

Jillian Michael’s workout

Quiet dinner with Chris and Annabelle…I made BBQ chicken in the crockpot and served mashed sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts on the side.




Dinner (grilled cheese with strawberry jelly)

I started feeling sick that night. šŸ˜¦


Sick. Slept most of the day and then just hung out on the couch. šŸ˜¦


Relaxed and then I thought some activity would make me feel better, so I did another Jillian workout. I even showered…it was the first time since Friday evening. Yes, I’m gross but I was sick.


Back to work after being off two days for snow, 2 days for the weekend, and one day for the holiday. I managed to get in a 6 mile run, but it was TOUGH.

1 mile warmup
2 miles at 8:00
2 miles at 7:30
1 mile at 8:00

The guy running on the treadmill next to me kept blowing his nose…into his shirt. Why do guys do this when a bathroom is steps away? Get some toilet paper please!

I wasn’t really hungry afterwards, but I ate a salad of grilled chicken and raw veggies.



I hope you guys are having a happy and healthy week so far. šŸ™‚

When was the last time you were sick?

Have you ever done a Jillian Michael’s workout?


  1. I did a portion of one of her ab workouts last week – it was only level one and it was kicking my butt, and I finally got to the end… and then she was like, “Ok, now we’re going to do all of that again.”

  2. Never tried her workouts.. I’m sure they are pretty good though, I like her style. But I don’t do workouts at home, I don’t have much patience for it and I think I’d be tempted into doing something else after 5 minutes.
