When it rains... let it rain BLOGS!

I have the flu.

AND strep throat.

At the same time.

I feel TERRIBLE. But hopefully the worst is over. Wednesday and yesterday were filled with fever and bodyaches. Today is just the horrible sore throat and the recovery. I tell you what... I can't seem to catch a break.

Honestly, I feel very discouraged right now. Somethings gotta give...

BUT until then, I want to update my blogroll. I figure that this weekend will involve a lot of lazy, get-well time. And during this time I plan to catch up on my blog reading.

Over the past few months, so many people have suggested blogs to me. I know I have missed some. Soooo, I am asking everyone with a new blog, or a blog that's not already on my blogroll to post a link to their blog. I want to read all about your journey, too!

So many times I find myself discouraged, and I find encouragement in someone else's journey. Thanks to all of you who write blogs and keep people like me going!

Feel better Hollie! You're so right on the finding encouragement. Whatever issue I'm having, I always find some kind of wisdom or encouragement on the blogs. There's so much that comes with being overweight that people who've never been there can't understand. There's nothing like being amongst "your people" and that's how I feel when reading blogs. Every story rings true.

Stay encouraged beautiful girl!

I can relate to you completely. I have just started feeling better myself. I guess this is the time of year to get sick and start feeling little discouraged. Your blog is the first fitness/weight loss blog I ever read and you have always inspired me. My post this evening was also dedicated to all of those in bloggerland :)

Hollie I am praying that you will feel better very soon. I enjoy following your blog, and you have been through so much. If you like to read, I think this book would be very very encouraging for you. It is called "Made to Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst. I just read it, and it is packed with motivation, scripture, good advice and HOPE. I am just beginning my journey AGAIN, and it really is helping me. Praying for you and your sweet family.

Hollie,
What are you eating while you are sick? I find it so hard to stay on the wagon with the food when I'm sick. By the way I have just started a weight loss blog. I find it cathartic to blog about my struggles and trying to get that darn baby weight off.

Big Broke said...

I don't have a blogspot blog but I would like you to read mine. You can find it at www.bigbrokebastard.com

I'm fat AND broke and i wanted to write about battling both of those but the fatness is more important right now so i'm focusing on that. Plus, absolutely no-one reads it....it's like I'm talking to myself, which can be good sometimes. anyway, don't be discouraged, millions of us are in the same boat, you can lean on any one of us....i've found that us fat folks are the most supportive group around.

I hope you feel better soon!!! Being sick is the worst!

I just started writing on my blog again ... it is not only about weight loss but that is a big part of it :)

I saw some tips on TV: excercise first thing in AM. Eat breakfast, then have a glass of ice cold water to speed up your metabolism.
For more tips, check out my ebook on weight loss. http://www.marys-ebooks.com/ You can suceed!

Hey Hollie,
Don't give in to those dismal feelings. They will pass!! I am so glad that there are other bloggers out there who are serious about getting healthy!! Get healthy, and feel better, and smack your work out break in the face with a hard core sweat session!!

I am right there with you, I also am writing and keeping track of my fitness goals and blogging about it, feel free to check it out!! :)
