I would be lost right now had I not done my Sunday Food Prep. I'm still sick, fighting off this cold, and having my food already prepared is a lifesaver - especially at night when it's time to set out dinner! I'm frustrated because I haven't been in the gym, but I have learned from my mistakes (at least this one, lol) and do not workout when I'm sick (which thankfully is rare). When I'm sick, all my nutrients and energy are going toward fighting back the illness... hitting the gym, I'd have no energy leftover to workout, and that's just self-defeating (yeah, I've done it, and yeah, it was utterly demoralizing). So, I'm out until this cold has run its course. Sucks because I'd planned to start yoga again this week. Blek. Stupid cold.

Oh well, onward and upward :-)
