Things are getting back on track!

Sigh, well at least it has only been a week since I’ve blogged last. There’s been a lot going on in my neck of the woods, but all in all, it hasn’t been too bad.

I’ve been sick since before Thanksgiving with a cold (to start with), then the flu last week, and now I found out my cold turned into Bronchitis, which is just a lot of nasty coughing, which can be really frustrating when you have a phone job like I do. LOL, I really have to work at holding it in sometimes. I’m on an antibiotic for it, but it doesn’t seem to have done anything so far. Keep your fingers crossed.

In the mean time, exerting myself only makes the coughing and (tmi) mucus worse, so I’ve had to avoid cardio workouts. Instead, the last few days I’ve been doing strength training and yoga. Low movement, and completely non-overexerting. And I’ve definitely felt like I’ve gotten a workout.

And, YAY, I used up all of my points target yesterday, and didn’t go over at all. I know I ate some things that are not the greatest, but that was actually limited. I got 4 fruits in, my dairy, etc. Not too shabby! And today I’m doing well so far too. I’m feeling like I’m more on top of things lately, that I’m finally gaining back control. I feel positively empowered! Hear me roar!!!
