And who gets sick in the middle of summer? It's a bummer for sure and earlier in the week I had the blues. Sometimes when I get sick I start thinking I've lost my way and all my fitness gains are going to get lost. It's all very dramatic but I think it's because being sick reminds me of how I used to feel all the time - no energy, hurting body, no motivation, headaches. Thank goodness I'm on the mend now though.
So what have I done with all this free time, besides getting a lot of rest of course. On Saturday we picked up a playset. Someone was giving it away as long as you disassemble and move it. That's right up our DIY (and thrifty) alley!

The stats are Fat: 4.5, Carbs: 2, and Protein: 8 so that makes them 2 points per stick. But for 2 points I can get a ton more protein (as in 15 grams) out of 6oz of Fage yogurt so it's not like this will be in heavy rotation. They'll make a nice change-of-pace "fun" snack for now and then and Miguel will probably like them too.
Time to wrap things up. My eating has been a bit of a roller coaster and my exercise has consisted of pushing toddlers in a swing so I'm not sure what's going to happen with my weight this week. I'll just have to take things as they come. I'm looking forward to getting back in the gym, which will probably be Sunday. In the meantime I'll enjoy the downtime and maybe catch up on some reading.
