This is going to be SHORT and SWEET.

(where did the sweet part come from that saying?  Is anyone else as fascinated with verbiage history as me?!?!  Self-professed dork, right here.)

Anyway, I’m sick. - Just a head's up that I'm sick and would appreciate the opportunity to bravely decline your offers of attention

I took yesterday off from posting and training (and exercise) – a horrible stomach bug is going around and it landed in my lap on Tuesday afternoon.  I had to get subs for my classes (HATE doing that!)  and my mom had to take the kids for a few hours on Tuesday night.  I’ll spare you the rest of the details.  It rhymes with schma-mit.  A lot of schma-mit out of my schmouth.

I ROCK at being sick too – it’s kinda my thing.  I’m whiney.  I’m irritable.  And I’m bossy.  A veritable rainbow of joy. Basically, I like to lay around on the couch and watch Pawn Stars.

You may send any and all get well cards to my secretary, Clara.


Today I PROMISED to give you guys a video for Tuesday Trainer.  (Luckily, I filmed this on Sunday so there is nary a vomit chunk in sight!)

The theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is YOGA/STRETCHING!!

Here’s my move – the Standing Figure 4.

(That cool intro/outro music was provided courtesy of my in house musician, Travis.  Sexy, right!?!)

I left the instructions for uploading in last weeks post, but in case you missed them….

Rules for participation:

  • Tell us who you are! If you blog, tell us the URL!
  • Do the exercises correctly! I can’t post videos with improper form or sketchy descriptions.
  • Be yourself – let that personality shine through!
  • Anyone can participate.

Video submissions are due next Monday, the 8th, at 8pm, EST! Please have them to me before the deadline! Go here to learn how to upload your video.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I simply must get back to Pawn Stars.  Must.

QUESTION:  When was the last time you threw up?  What is one comfort that you must have when sick?  <-my flannel pajamas!

  1. Oh gosh girl, well, surely you’re feeling better by now…at least I should hope! Good thing about stomach bugs is that they don’t hang around long…it’s a tough call, but I’d definitely take ONE day of schma-mitting over a week of the funk! Lord…the last time I threw up? Hmm, you know it’s funny how our minds are programmed to forget such horrible things. Like you never realize just how bad it feels until it happens again! Ugh! I think it’s been at least a year…and if I’m recalling correctly, it was a deserved punishment…beer before liquor, never sicker! ;)

    And I HAVE to have my fleece blanket whenever I’m sick…and I also prefer the couch to my bed for some reason! True story, when I was shopping for my living room furniture a few years ago with my ex, I kept telling him to take the “sick test”…lay on the couch and pretend your sick and whiney and see if it’s comfy! Lol

  2. Hope you feel better. I can’t believe it, but I haven’t puked since my senior year of college. And I’m 28! And that includes 4 years of teaching kids and three of living in a country known for parasites. Knock on wood!!!!!!!

  3. The last time I threw up was in the bushes of my hotel at my stepbrother’s wedding. No, it wasn’t a drunk thing! I had contracted a horrible stomach flu. My husband and I were just dating then, and he held my hair back for me…that’s when I knew he was a keeper ;)

  4. Aww feel better!! I’m the same way when I get sick like that, full blown pity party and everyone’s invited. The slight upside is that once you’re feeling better, you appreciate being healthy that much more. Hopefully it’s one of those fast and furious viruses and you’ll be feeling like yourself again in no time! :)

  5. Hope you feel better, lovely!
    I trained a client yesterday morning, who only ended up making it half way through. She proceeded to tell me she had the flu still and woke up at 1 in the morning to puke. Lovely. Hope I don’t catch it!

  6. Aw, so sorry to hear that you’re sick.
    When I’m sick, all I want is to be left alone…let me curl up in my bed and die quietly, please.

    I can’t remember the last time I threw up (thank goodness!)
    TT is filmed and ready to go. Feel better soon! xo

  7. omg, i think the last time i threw up was with the Stomach flu also – given to me by my baby nephew…it was the WORST! I was in the bathroom the entire night! Feel better soon!

  8. Glad you’re feeling a leeetle better. You should just move here (forget that house you just bought), be my neighbor and I’ll take care of you.

  9. Hope you feel better!!!! And side note – I totally milk it when I’m sick. I figure I spend so much of my time giving to others that if I’m feeling awful I might as well soak up the care. Go on with your whiny self. ;)

  10. well, i am glad i haven’t thrown up in a while. Phew! but i’ve been there way too many times. You feel like your body is demonized. No joke!

    I pray for you! wish i could come make you soup and cover your classes. I would ya know!

    I already filmed my tuesday trainer. BOOYAH!

  11. Oh how I hate vomiting. I always try to hold back and keep it from happening, dreading it all the while…then after the chunks fly, it’s almost like the feeling you get after finishing a workout that you have been dreading…SO much better once it’s finished! Feel better soon!
