I don't live in the warmest of cities, but for the last week or so it has been unseasonably cold (we're talking lows in the 30's highs in the upper 40's). It's basically winter already and I'm cold. Plus between the weather and the (dun dun dunnnnn) swine flu, everyone is sick. This does actually have a point: I woke up feeling like I'm getting a cold. Being sick completely kills my motivation for pretty much anything. After putting up all my lofty goals yesterday, I'm now trying to decide if going to my Turbo Kick class tonight is a good or bad idea.

So this is the question, at what point during the sickness cycle is it good to work out or bad to work out? I know that Jillian Michaels had this as one of her questions a while ago and I believe her answer was something like: work out unless the sickness has moved into your chest, you have a fever, or are light headed. While I accept the premise that feeling sick shouldn't be a an excuse to blow off your workouts, I also know that generally if I rest and sleep when I feel like I'm getting sick, I can ward it off or at least make it shorter. I guess that's my dilemma, go with Jillian's advice or my own previous experience. I guess I'll just see how I feel by the end of the day.

Well, I didn't end up going... still tired and sore throat, so I will go to bed early and hope that this whole sicky thing goes away.

Also *Spoiler Alert*, Biggest Loser tonight!

So, guess what Tracy gets the power.. again. how on earth did that happen? Also, I'm very proud of Abby for not playing the temptation. So of course she's going to split all the teams up except hers, and then she has to pick one other team not to split up, so she puts what she views as the weakest team together on the black team (Daniel and Shay, also she might be trying to get on their good side-unlikely). Goes ahead to put the strongest players on her team. Pretty obvious Tracy strategy, also basically going to get her kicked off as soon as they have a chance.

Challenge was interesting... fairly predictable ending since there are only two guys on the black team. Once they get to some of the stability challenges and things they'll have a chance to win. Can't believe that Liz gave Danny her video, so super cute! I wish Dina would get up on that stupid platform block thing. I know those things are scary, I've done that, and yeah I get it, but grrr I wish she could do it! Black team is working together really well though:) Jillian is good at that.

Crazy weigh-in tonight. Tracy pulls a decent number again unfortunately. Everyone is pulling decent numbers though. Really proud of Danny... and Daniel!!! (I have a tendency to be for Jillian's team, Tracy is just helping with that fact right now) OMG SHAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, sorry, got excited :) Ok what's with all the wishywashyness about voting off tracy, they better do it.... I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!! What are they thinking?!?! I can't even, nope, ok I'm done commenting now.
