Day 24 - Jan 24
New meds as the other one was making me feel ill. Worked from home in the afternoon. No workout. :( Maybe a few bodyweight exercises. Can't remember. Food was OK, all things considering.

Day 25 - Jan 25
Finally feeling better!! Back to work. Back to my routine, at least somewhat.

Workout
10 minute warm up on the eliptical machine, level 10 and as fast as I could go. Did some arms, shoulders. Didn't get them written down so can't remember for sure, but it included dumbell rows, kickbacks, shrugs,

Jan 26 - Jan 26

Workout
Didn't have time for much today so did abs. Dip bar used for hanging leg raises, knees raises, spread leg raises, etc. Tried to do hanging leg raies but I end up swinging too much! Will have to look into how to fix that; maybe just comes with time. Also did crunches on a ball and ab machine.

Food
OK, but had more sweets than I should have, after not having them at all while I was sick. Should not have started again, as having sugar just makes me crave more sugar!

Can't believe I missed a day again!!

Jan 27 - Day 27
Workout
Ran/walked with my son as he biked. (It snowed big flakes on us and the wind came up until it was blizzarding!) Played outside in the snow. Did some pushups and other bodyweight exercises.

Jan 28 - Day 28
Workout
Stretching exercises with my son, making goals/croquet hoops/whathaveyou out of my body so the ball (and he) could roll under or through. It's harder than it sounds, had to hold the poses for a long time! Some other bodyweight exercises, Playing outside in the snow. May still get in a more structured workout here tonight, but no guarantees. If so, need to do something to get my heart rate up.

Food
This has been one of the worst food days I've had in a long time. Haven't eaten much, and what I did eat was not fruit/veg.

Wow scary, you slipped and fell while carrying your son across a busy intersection? You are bruised up? How is your son did he get hurt as well?
Well the good news is that you earned a prize package for your great work keeping up with your journal here on the forum. Hope you continue to use it as a tool. A large group of us certainly have been using them for personal accountability but also to read and pick up things from each other.
