Day 11 - yay winter colds :/

Song of the day:  Taylor Swift - Long Live

Elliot's sporting a pretty intense cold and the combination of snot and coughing has made him not able to eat his cereal without throwing up or gagging.  I feel so bad for him because he just wants to keep going but you can see in his eyes that he feels icky.  The only plus side of him having a cold is that he just wants to be in my lap and cuddle.  Due to him being sick I had to cancel my walk with Maria.  Hopefully Elliot will be feeling better today so we can go tonight!

The spicy shrimp noodle bowl was a hit - no surprise there!  For dinner tonight we are going to have mushroom and provolone patty melts.  It's hard to believe that there is only 416 calories in it!  I'm hoping to get in my 1/2 hour of cardio today, but I'm starting to feel like I'm coming down with what Elliot has, and I just feel drained.  I'm not really sure what the protocol is on working out while getting sick.  Part of me thinks you shouldn't because you're body should focus on healing, but the other part thinks that you should because then your body is working and healthier.  I think I'll have to google this.

Kyle is flying back from Utah tonight, but won't get in until late and then he is going to Milwaukee tomorrow, so Elliot and I are heading back home tomorrow afternoon.  I'm going to plan out dinners and lunches for this weekend and I'm excited to try some more new stuff!  All of my recipes for the last two weeks have came from the October issue of Cooking Light Magazine, and I have 5 months worth of magazines to pick through!  The hardest park is picking just one!


  1. Hope you guys feel better soon. It's not fun when everyone is sick.

  2. Bekah, I love following your journey! Your doing an AMAZING job! I am a certified Personal Trainer, and if you ever have questions, I'd be happy to help you out!! I don't know all the answers, but I know some:)

    Especially when sickness is coming on, it's a great idea to still workout. alot of times by getting your blood flowing and fluids moving you can work alot of the junk out of your body. At times it can be a little more uncomfortable then your regular workout, when the nose starts running and eyes start watering and everything, but it's good because your body is working the junk out!
    You go girl!! Your doing an amazing job!!

  3. Thanks Rachel! I'll be sure to ask you if I have any questions! I'm sure at some point I'm going to hit a plateau and need something new to spice up my routine!
