Thanksgiving Week and Recovery

Every once in awhile despite the countless responsibilities, plans, and commitments I have on my lap, my body has other ideas. This week was one of those weeks.

It didn’t matter that it was Thanksgiving week, I am in the process of moving, my new apartment had issues which I will elaborate on in another post, and I’m in the terrifically awesome midway point of Tina’s even more strikingly awesome Best Body Bootcamp.


None of it mattered to my body. It just said NO.

I came down with an awful cold that kept me sidelined and in bed coughing miserably for most of the week.

I ventured to work on Tuesday because my annual self review was due, and I scared the crap out of my co-workers with my coughing fits.

I ate only crackers, lemon lime soda, cough syrup, and water most of the week.

Thanksgiving day I made it up to visit my grandparents at least, and we had a lovely meal:


But other than that, mostly reading and water drinkingvfor most of the week. Lucky for me those are my two “other” Bootcamp goals. ;)

I was able to get activity in the last couple of days in the form of unpacking, caulking, cleaning,  laundry, and errands.

In other news, my good friend asked me to be her maid of honor at her wedding in 2 weeks (yay!) I just have to try to put together a bridal shower for next weekend (eek!!).

Also, the Candy Gram fundraiser I head at work every year starts tomorrow and I am SO not prepared.

Its OK though…

With lots of prayer, faith, deep breaths, smiles, and a joyful heart I’ll be able to jump back in to life.

So on that note, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving week, and here’s to next week!

    I’m more proud of you for listening to your body when you weren’t feeling well and giving it the rest it needs. Hope you’re feeling better now! And you look gorgeous in that picture. :)
