The Snowball Effect



You're down in the dumps, your immune system suffers, your life just gets busier and then BAM! You get sick.  Things just snowball and you are headed downhill.  You just have to STOP what you are doing, RELAX, and take things down a level.

My body is officially out of commission and I have resigned from the gym for a bit.  It hurts to move, much less bike, run or lift.  Meanwhile, my cute husband is on a "business trip" in fabulous Las Vegas.  Good for him.  I'm alone with all three over-active kids this weekend and I am thoroughly overwhelmed.  My awesome younger brother and his beautiful fiancee stepped up to the plate today to help me out, before they too headed out to fabulous Las Vegas (did I mention I feel a streak of jealousy?)  Together, we got the kids to the bike park so at least they could get some exercise, and we took them out to lunch so I can hole up in the house for the rest of the weekend without any guilt.  After playtime, they all sat in the car as I stood in line at the pharmacy behind 12 people to pick up a prescription.  Everyone and their brother was there sniffling, sneezing and aching, just like me.  It was sort of gross.  I purchased six different potential remedies for my multi-dimensional ailments hoping at least one will work.  If all else fails I plan to fix up a "hot toddy" with the Jack Daniels in hallway closet.  Works every time.


Needless to say, I am not worried about losing weight today.  We went to lunch and I got the chicken noodle soup.  And the turkey burger...with cheese.  Oh, and some fries and a diet coke.  And it worked, I felt just a little bit better.  I'm too sick to remember how many kids I have much less worry about some dumb Weight Watchers Points values.  I'll be getting back into the swing of things as soon as my body will allow.  I'm trying to respect it and it's telling me to SLOW down, to REST and I think it might be saying "Have a bowl of ice cream if you want."  Maybe I just need a trip to fabulous Las Vegas!

I think you are doing a great job. I am unfortunately have failed at losing weight. I mean I try and working at school does not help. I wish I could find a happy medium. The only thing I love is Zumba. I do love it. It makes me very happy and love the music.

I am so excited to try Zumba once I'm feeling better...my sister raves about it. It's one of my goals for this new year. I hear it's a great adrenaline rush...the music is fun and it's just a blast.

And thanks Claudia for the advice on marketing!
