Not so Super Weekend

What is worse than being sick? Being sick on the weekend! I mean, that is my only time to enjoy some me time and family time and being sick should not be part of that. Yuck! Last week I was feeling kind of icky but I still made it to the gym and worked out hard. That is a sure sign for me of not being that sick. Then Saturday I woke up and felt like I had been hit by a truck. One of those times when I really wanted to cry as soon as I woke up, and the only thing that stopped me was knowing that would just make it all hurt worse. I'm such a bad patient when I am sick. My over the counter medicine decisions are usually not great. If one thing doesn't work in about 5 minutes, immediately take another dose or try a different medicine. I mean, medicine should work in less than 5 minutes, am I right? hmm, note to self: I should probably stop buying the Costco size bottle of Advil....

Today's post was supposed to be filled with info on an awesome workout with my lovely friend Laura, a basketball game recap from my favorite 5th grade team, and details on the best Super Bowl party ever. Except I didn't make it to any of that. Luckily/unluckily(?) the team, Brooklyn's basketball team was supposed to be playing didn't show up, so I didn't completely miss their real game. They have 12 girls, so they ended up playing each other just to get some game time in. 

And I stayed on the couch with this one pretty much all of Saturday and Sunday. We managed to watch the Super Bowl together and snack on some junk food (me and the humans in the house, not Kallie) that has been banished from our house for the last month. That was a nice break. But now it's time to get back on the bandwagon. I've got a dietbet to join tonight, so I'm going to be serious again and hope to kick the rest of this sickness and get back in the gym. 

So what did everyone think of the Superbowl last night? And what was your favorite commercial?

blah. being sick sucks! hope you feel better soon. my secret weapon for colds: manuka honey. melt some of that with lemon juice and guzzle! or add to chamomile tea. manuka is a natural antiseptic/antibacterial.

I think it's the weather here! 60 on Saturday, 30 on Sunday. I got hit with whatever crazy head cold is going around. By the time the Super bowl was over I was no longer able to breath through my nose. I hate being congested!

Sorry you were sick :( At least you had a cute cuddle bug to keep you company on the couch! I skipped the Super Bowl so I could go to roller derby practice for 3 hrs.
