I should be in bed...

...but I really wanted to post first. I have PROMISED myself to blog more for accountability.

I worked out for an HOUR today. Once again, I think I would have skipped the gym had it not been for my gym buddy.

It's official that all of my kids have the flu. The boys got diagnosed on Monday, and my girls got the verdict today. I had to pick up the baby from school, and when the doctor said her flu test was positive, he told me to bring in my other daughter since she is the only one in the house that wasn't sick yet. When I told him that she had been coughing and snotty, he said I definitely needed to bring her in. An hour later, she tested positive, too.

Bad thing? Their strain of the flu is different from the one I had, so I can get it again. FML.

So... At first I was thinking this was a reason to skip the gym. I dropped all the kids off at the house, and was on my way to pick up prescriptions when I got a call from my co-worker/gym buddy to see if I was still gonna be able to make it to the gym. I looked at the clock and knew I had enough time. I threw on my gym clothes and was there in 10 minutes.

30 minutes on the elliptical, 30 minutes on the bike, and I worked on my arms with free weights.

I pushed a little harder today because we are weighing in tomorrow for the Biggest Loser Challenge. Our usual weigh ins are Fridays, but we had to weigh in Monday this week because last Friday was a snow day. It's only been 4 days, but I am hopeful for a little loss. I feel better and I've been eating better. More calories and better food. I am even taking my supplements again.

But I have already decided if I don't see a loss tomorrow that it won't be the end of the world. I haven't tried this hard in a long time. It might take a while for my body to get with the program, but eventually these good changes have to catch up. Right?
