Well that didn't take long. Today was not really better than yesterday at all. I am kinda glad my pedometer hasn't come in the mail yet, because if I had it on today my steps would be embarrassingly low. I spent a good part of the day today sitting. My daughter and I were not feeling well today. It started when she woke up this morning and shouted that she thought she was going to throw up, and then it was a mad scramble to the bathroom with a towel. She didn't actually throw up but was quite nauseous for about half the day and had a low grade fever. I set her up on the couch with a blanket, pillow, and bucket and we sat together for a good part of the day, watching movies, reading, playing quietly. A few hours later I got a headache and became nauseous myself. Not a pleasant day. But thankfully by evening she was sipping liquids and eating chicken soup and I was eating able do get my nutrition in via Medifast shakes, yogurt and even had some steamed cauliflower for dinner. She was super tired but otherwise recovered by bedtime and I am feeling back to normal. I think we were both fighting off a stomach bug; one of her friends came over last week and started throwing up in our house so I assume that's what we are dealing with.
On a brighter note, I am pretty sure this is the first time either my daughter or I have been sick at all since February. Not bad! I guess we are doing something right.
What I did right today: took all my supplements, stayed on plan, took care of myself and my child.
Hoping tomorrow is BETTER.
