Just when I thought I was feeling better…BAM my cold comes back in full blast! I was doing great until yesterday….and it could be because…

Yesterday I woke up bright an early to attend homefries school trip. When I heard they were going to a kid’s gym, I knew I had to chaperone. I popped some zicam and dayquil and headed to her school.

We rode the bus together…and made silly faces…I have no shame!


We arrived at Kids in Shape and coach Bob went over the rules…basically go crazy and try not to kill each other!


Did I mention that they had a zip line? (I wanted to try it BUT you had to be under 5 feet…sad panda)


After the trip, I rushed back home…sidenote while I was waiting for the train, they were doing work on the tracks and I was seriously freaking out when the guys were just standing there as the train approached…and of course I had to take a picture (again…I have NO shame!)


I came home did Turbo Fire 45 and then shoved some leftover thai tofu before heading to the gym to train my clients…


I worked at the gym until 9ish and then took the bus home and let me tell you people it is COLD out here…I seriously thought my ears were going to fall off. I guess I over did it because I was up until 3 in the morning coughing and sneezing and my voice sounds like a 13 year old going through puberty.

This morning I got to sleep in, thanks to the note I left my neighbor ayer “can you please lower your alarm clock radio because I keep waking up at 6am to 1010 wins”. For the past couple of weeks, I have been going nuts…my neighbor’s alarm goes off at 6am and stays on until 7:30 and all morning I hear the weather and news every 10 minutes! Me banging on the wall didn’t giver her the hint to lower it so I had to leave a note underneath her door =)

So what happens when you get to sleep in? You have energy to do a morning workout WHAT WHAT! I still felt like crap so instead of cardio, I stuck to some strength training and popped in Personal Training with Jackie (even though I train others, there are times when I don’t want to think about it and just follow a dvd)

Ever since last night, I have been craving a frittata and could not wait to have one this morning for breakfast. I made a CHEESY Veggie Egg White Frittata (and made enough to have some tomorrow)


I topped it with some hot sauce and paired it with some french press coffee with skim plus milk and splenda…deeeeeeeeeeelish!


So how do you deal with people? Do you hate confrontation?



  1. I totally hate confrontation!!! But sometimes it is necessary. You did the right thing though, very polite and I'm glad it worked :)

  2. Feel better! I have a cold too right now booo. My Sudafeds are substituting my purple pills today lol. You know I hate confrontation! Neighbors have stuck notes under my door before because of my loud ass music and I get pissed at first but eventually turn it down haha.

  3. Oh no! Feel better love! I've been waking up every morning on the verge of getting sick but so far it hasn't stuck...knock on wood.

    I HATE confrontation! i'd totally leave a note.

  4. Do not feel bad you missed the part about me moving to Japan. I was busy too and missed a ton with all the blogs I follow, including yours, so I know how easy it is to do. But yes, we are in Japan now. Military life has it's pros and cons, but it is nice to be able to experience other cultures by living there. You never know, you could meet a nice military guy!

  5. Good for you for leaving that note and finally getting some sleep! I wonder if I would have the guts to do that.....probably, after being annoyed enough :)
    You are SUCH a great aunt. I Don't blame you for wanting to do that zip line! I'd want to do it too, how fun!
    The frittata looks fabulous. I need to make one of those again soon. They are super easy and filling.
    Enjoy your weekend!!

  6. Aww I hope you feel better!! If I'm pms-ing, I'm all for!

  7. Yum! I want that frittata- well not me, but mansanita or mansanito :)

    I love how you go on trips with homeskillet. She's got the best auntie.
