***Note: This post is a bit of everything and not as neat as I like, but it’s been so long since I posted I wanted to at least check in.***
Well, I’m completely behind on updates for the Healthy Holidays Challenge. Our Thanksgiving included a short visit from my brother, his wife and daughter and after all the cooking and eating was completed we spent time watching cheesy Christmas movies and then shopping for ornaments the day after.
We had pouring rain pretty much most of the week, but a break in the weather allowed us to get our Christmas tree last Saturday. The break in weather also allowed me to complete my Thankful Journey 5K. I took a nice fall during my run, spraining my ankle a bit, which I planned on blogging about until I got sick.
But back to more fun things…
We had to leave our tree upright in the garage to dry out a bit before we could bring it in for decorating. While the tree dried out I pulled out my bins of holiday decor and started changing out the fall for Christmas decorations.
So, the tree got up and we decorated it on Sunday, then Monday was laundry day and my nose started to run, and run, and run.
Then my throat felt like it was on fire and everything got worse and worse and I’m on day 4 of being sick. It’s been a pain because I’m hosting a party tonight and still had a couple things to do. Thankfully, I planned way ahead and could afford a couple days of complete resting in hopes of getting better. I’m not 100%, but I am doing better.
No fevers or infections, so we’re going on with our party plans (me doped up on Mucinex and Tylenol). My daughters said they’d be happy to host it if I could be up for it. lol
Needless to say, all the hustle of Thanksgiving followed by getting sick hasn’t helped me stay on track with my challenge. I haven’t eaten as much while being sick, so that is nice. (You know it’s bad when I don’t even really want my morning coffee. *smirk*)
So, the best of an update I’m going to give you is the scale isn’t up or down. Activities of daily living have been my “exercise” this week and I’m hoping to be back to normal asap.
I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and are enjoying getting into full holiday mode. I know we are!
Thanks for stopping by!
