Christmas Dress Challenge – Week Ten – Better!!

Week Ten is gone, and so is my cold, finally.  Ten whole days of misery.  I went mountain biking today and did okay.  I was just riding a slow pace on the kid track, but I was riding outside, and I was NOT coughing my head off.

This week I weighed in at 156.8 pounds.

DO-IT:  The Dress.Done.

DO-IT: My  Weight Watchers points. I did track, and I was well under all week long. Not from any sort of amazing feat of willpower, but just because I was still sick most of the week and just didn’t feel like eating.

DO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week. Not this week, either, up until today.  I hate being sick.

DO-IT: Consistency. By the pure definition of the term, I was most consistent this week. I did the same thing every day – slept, blew my nose, coughed, blew my nose some more, coughed some more, ate a little, drank a lot of tea.  This week will be better for sure.

DO-IT: Hydrate.  Done.

DO-IT:Read a few more chapters of Refuse to Regain this week. Now the author is going on and on about primitive Paleo diets which I have yet to wrap my head around.  Yes, I generally eat low carb anyway, but I’m not completely ready to give up carbs totally and only eat what can be hunted or gathered from my local national forest.  I’m working on it.

DO-IT: One update post a week. Yes, even though it was a snarky letter to my cold.

DO-IT: Link up to your weekly updates.  Done for sure, this week!

DO-IT:  Be supportive.  I got through to a few of you this week, and I apologize for not visiting everyone.  Since I am finally feeling better, I have every intention of getting back to my regular rounds this week!

Stay Healthy.  Keep the Faith.

  1. I am glad that you are feeling better. It’s about time. Now you can do what you want to do without a kleenex in your hand all day. Now stay healthy. Take care Angela and have a blessed weekend.

  2. I’m so glad to hear you are better. The cold season is here and my kids are both sick right now. I hope it doesn’t last as long as yours did.

  3. Sometimes taking care of yourself means drinking tea and staying in bed and sometimes taking care of yourself means kicking ass on the trail! So glad that you’re taking care of yourself!

  4. Glad to hear you are feeling better, being sick sucks. I can understand the irritating coughing, I’ve been dealing with that cause I have this allergy induced asthma that makes it difficult for me to do much of anything that requires energy exertion due to the fact that I then have issues breathing and coughing.

    1. Yep. I have allergy induced asthma, too – and exercise irritates the heck out of my lungs. I don’t let it stop me, though – that’s what my inhaler is for!

  5. Take care of yourself. Be good to you so you can be back up and at ’em all the way around…. Lingering colds suck. Be strong!
