Worked out and didn't die!

Back from my first work-out. I didn't die. Wasn't even as bad as I thought it was going to be, probably partly due to me walking slowly on the treadmill (yet faster than was recommended). All upper body today. I am sure I will be feeling it all tomorrow, though. They do tell us to eat some protein right afterward to alleviate muscle soreness the next day, so we'll see how my almonds and hard boiled egg worked out.

Feeling much better tonight. Very very tired yesterday evening (first day on the cleanse), and kind of nauseated this morning...maybe due to the eggs for breakfast. Or due to the fact that the house is still swimming in germs.

Poor Penny is such a mess. She's still coughing a bit and still has a little bit of a runny nose. She's on amoxicilyn for an ear infection, but that doesn't seem to be having any residual effects on the rest of her cold symptoms. Unfortunately. It is super duper fun trying to get her to take the medicine. She knows it's coming now and starts thrashing around before I even start. Ugh. Sucks. She did have fun at Babygarden today at the library. (I'm assuming that since we're 1/2 way through the anti-biotics she's not that contagious. Hopefully.) Did both cringe and kind of do a really grown-up 'might just serve you right' when the little boy who was closer to 2, who had been wrenching toys out of other kids hands and throwing balls, some at/near Penny, decided to grab the shaker bottle toy that Penny had been chewing on...and put it right in his mouth. (His parents were not stepping in besides saying his name or sighing loudly-his Dad actually just said, he's only 2). I get that at 2 he might not 'get' the sharing concept, but it doesn't mean you just let him rip things away from babies and do nothing. Ahh, 'playground' politics, this is the drama in my life!
