Day 5

On Wednesday, I completed day 4 of Jillian's 30-day shred.

Of course, days 1 - 3 were back in April right before I found out I was pregnant, but I'm still going to count Wednesday as day 4. Several of my facebook friends assured me that this is perfectly okay to do.

It felt so good to be active again and I was feeling so motivated, but on what would have been day 5, I woke up feeling sick. Ben had a runny nose all week, and I hadn't thought much of it. I just thought he had the sniffles, and they'd go away. But yesterday, the "sniffles" took out me, Ben, Jack and Claire.

I had aches, fever, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and headache. It was miserable. It still kind of is. On top of it all . . . have I mentioned that I did Jillian's 30-day shred the night before? I don't remember my muscles hurting that bad when I did it back in April, but yesterday I could barely walk. It was hard to tell what was hurting from this virus and what was hurting from pushing my totally out of shape body too hard.

Claire slept all day yesterday, and has pretty much been sleeping all day today, with the exception of when I woke her up to eat at noon. She was so pitiful . . . stuffy breathing, glassy eyes, snotty nose, and this pitiful little glazed over smile when I talk to her. Thankfully, her temperature is back down around 100.

The boys, however, were up for most of the night for the last two nights. Kyle and I played musical beds while we tried to help them get comfortable and sleep. They seem to have rebounded, from what I'm hearing upstairs. Lots of laughing and activity. I think we're on the upswing.

Unfortunately, Kyle had a headache and laid down to take a nap an hour or two ago . . . I think we might have another man down.

Day 6 of the 30-day shred might have to wait another week or two.
