January 1 - woke up with a sore throat and hurting all over - uggh, it has started... Sick for the first week of January with a throat infection/body aches/chills. January 8 - I start to feel better but energy is still zapped. January 11 - begin to feel almost 100%. January 17 - I get sick again with the same thing!! Can this really be happening? To me - YES! Sleep for 4 days straight with throat infection/body aches/chills/absolutely zero energy. January 18 - Our youngest boy gets it but only for 2 days - thank goodness! January 20 - My oldest boy gets 'it' too! January 28 - This past Friday my youngest begins complaining of a headache and his cheeks are really red and he feels 'tired'.

Ran home and fired it up. It worked great! January 24th - I finally come out of my second sick haze and slowly my energy returns - so I hit the gym again.

And I threw my lower back out with the first 15 minutes!! Gosh - I feel sooo broken!! But being the trooper that I am I stuck it out and didn't leave the class. Came home and took some tylenol and basically I have been shuffling around since!!! So the month of January has completely sucked at our house - can't wait to turn the calendar on the fridge over to February!! Has anyone else out there in blogland been hit with the sickmonster?
I do have some upcoming projects to post - please check back to see!!!
P.S. Big props to my husband for looking after us and making meals. He completely ROCKS!
