I love a good stomach bug!

Today I am so queasy that I have no appetite. This is by far the easiest way to eat clean. I know, I know, when my appetite comes back I will be ravenous, but until then, I am feeling skinny! I don't know what happened. I was up a lot last night with a funny stomach, actually took a nap at about noon, and then sat on the sofa watching Justified and Blacklist (getting really good!!) trying not to throw up. I hope it passes before I have to make dinner!

Anyway, yesterday I wore my Lululemon no limits tank from two December's ago and groove pants. All black, of course. We did a killer bunch of exercises with a heavy kettlebell, doing sumo squats and then jumping forward and back. Oh, do I feel it today! So, the following picture is completely appropriate!

I have a silly confession to make. Not really silly, but more in the lines of, why didn't I think of that before? All winter I have horribly chapped lips. Every winter. Some of it is from speaking all day at work. Some of it is from being at the gym and huffing and puffing through my mouth (spin). And some of it is from the heat in the car blasting at my face. You know what has almost cured me? Aquaphor! I can't believe this. I think I used it when my kids were tiny and just forgot about it. It beats chapstick and vaseline and every other brand of lip gloss out there. I literally have some sort of gloss in every pocket of every coat, in the car, in every bag and in every room in my house. Sorry, it even beats Sugar and Burts Bees. This is not a sponsored post by any means. I spent a whole $6 or so all by myself. Best spent $6. It has really made a difference! And that is my helpful hint of the day!
