Day 22: Sick

After eating like crap again all weekend – should I be surprised I woke up sick this morning? There’s also been a major change in weather – so that could be it too. Either way I’m NOT happy to be feeling so sick & tired! I’m not one of those people that will continue to push through work outs when I’m sick. So I’m going to let my body heal – take care of myself and hit the gym when I’m feeling better.
