my weight loss toolbox: when i'm sick

I've been sick; Jesse has been sick; the girls have been sick.  First we got a cold, then a stomach flu.  Without getting into too much detail, I was cleaning a trail of vomit in the hallway to the bathroom.  Fun times.  Fun times.  Thankfully, we are recovering, and as soon as we are better, we are getting a flu shot to help lessen the severity of this nonsense next time.  

The point of this post, though, is that I haven't been able to stay on track with my activity.  I have an activity challenge prepared.  (It's part of my October goals).
  Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30
I bought Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 recently.  I took a look at it, and it's tough.  The DVD has 4 workouts at 4 levels.  Each level gets increasingly difficult.  My sister, Jesse, and I have agreed to do it.  (If you're like me, if you have to be at home, and can't get to the gym as often as you'd like, I highly recommend getting a few workout videos to do at home.  This DVD was about $10.  Even if I only use it for the month, that's still less than a monthly, gym membership).

I had hoped to start the challenge last week, but I wasn't able to because I've been sick.  I am recovering this week, but I am still not feeling up to working out.  Hopefully, I will be starting next week.  Last week, I was comforting myself with food and eating junk, which I am sure will help speed up my recovery.  ;) This week I realized that just because I can't workout doesn't mean I can't stay on plan.  I read this article on the Weight Watchers website, and it helped me as far as when I should and shouldn't workout and how to stay on plan.  I hope it's helpful to you, too.
