No Rest for the Wicked.

And ain't that the truth.

Even sick I'm still sticking to my healthy lifestyle, still cooking healthy meals, and still exercising (albeit not as hard -- I haven't done C25K because I can't breathe out my nose and have a bit of a cough, but I WILL get back to it). Besides, I walk very fast (it comes from having long legs as I'm 5'7" which isn't super tall but it is by girl standards)and walking is pretty good exercise anyways.

I think when I start feeling better after I drop 3ft off in the mornings I'm going to see what Mr. Grumpybutt thinks about sitting in his stroller with a bunch of his toys while I workout at the "gym". "The Walker" and "The Sweaty Guy on the Bike" shouldn't be there that early (yes, I too shall miss them -- NOT!) and I should be able to get some elliptical done or treadmill or something a little more sweat worthy than walking (even though walking is great exercise).

Speaking of sweat. I've noticed since I've started drinking nothing but water and so much of it, I sweat a lot more than I used to. Not icky sweaty guy sweat, you know, the ones that just have it drip off them while they are sitting watching TV or something, but when I workout I perspire more. All part and parcel of being well hydrated I guess -- but that old adage, "Real ladies don't sweat," echoes in my brain as I workout and actually have to use the workout towel I brought with me. I guess no one would accuse me of being a real lady anyways, "BURP!" So it doesn't really matter.

I pulled myself off my deathbed last night to make Chicken Cacciatore Pasta for dinner. Traditionally, Cacciatore is made with diced tomatoes instead of pasta sauce but I didn't have enough tomatoes, I had some pasta sauce I didn't want going bad, and my boys like a thicker sauce anyways. However I did put the traditional Cacciatore ingredients in the sauce: red bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, some red wine vinegar, garlic, the chicken (of course), and other hidden veggies (shhh don't tell the boys, they'll stop eating it). Slopped it on some penne rigate noodles and there it is.

Wow! Even sick, you are doing better than me. So far today, I've managed to eat two chocolate granola bars, some animal crackers, almonds, an apple wedge and cereal. My workout... "helping" my 4yo play Lego Star Wars.

Hope those sniffles go away soon!!
